Botox & Dysport
At Boss Gal Beauty Bar, our staff is highly trained in cosmetic injections to combat signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
We offer Botox and Dysport injections (botulinum toxin type A) to relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in your skin, resulting in a smoother, younger, more refreshed appearance. Both Botox and Dysport work the same way and achieve similar results, your medical provider can help choose the best one for you.
BOTOX & DYSPORT
Botox and Dysport are extremely popular injections and their effects last 3-4 months. During the procedure, a small, thin needle is used to inject into the facial muscles. It’s quick and only causes minor, temporary discomfort with common side effects of swelling and bruising at the injection site.
Wrinkle Relaxers can be used in a variety of areas on the face to address your concerns. At your appointment, we will talk through your concerns and recommend the best treatment plan. Areas of treatment can include crow’s feet, forehead lines, angry lines (between brows), bunny lines (nose wrinkles), brow lift, and face slimming by reducing the size of masseter muscles. Below are examples of our work and more can be found on our Instagram.

After your Botox/Dysport treatment, you can resume most activities right away. We advise that you avoid lying down for 4 hours after the procedure. You also shouldn’t rub the area for about 24 hours to avoid any unwanted side effects. Have questions about other activities like exercising? Take a look at our blog HERE.
It may take anywhere from 5-7 days for results to appear, and up to 2 weeks for the full results to be visible.
The amount of Botox/Dysport needed will depend on how many treatment areas you’d like to cover, as well as the size and strength of the muscle. As Dysport ($3.75/unit) is a smaller molecule, it takes more units to achieve the same result as one unit of Botox ($11/unit). The number of units you need will be assessed by your injector during the consult.
No, you cannot receive Botox/Dysport injections while pregnant or breastfeeding. We recommend consulting your doctor for more information.
Botox/Dysport will begin showing results within 5-7 days of your procedure and reach its full effect by week two. These effects can last between 3-4 months.
No, the muscle activity should return to its original state when the Botox/Dysport wears off.
The results will be seen after the first treatment. Botox and Dysport take two to four days before the muscle weakening effect takes place. The maximum effect occurs at about 10 to 14 days.
Pain and discomfort depend on one’s tolerance for pain. Most people describe it as minimally painful. A little poke that quickly dissipates.
Do not rub or the areas of injection for 4 hours post-injection. Do not lay down for 4 hours. Do not work out for the rest of the day.
Yes! We would just have to do your facial first, and then the Botox/Dysport injections.
