Botox/Dysport® Injection Washington, DC
These injectables are used to treat facial wrinkles and neck bands caused by specific muscle groups. They relax muscles across the forehead or around the eyes or mouth to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. The injections are delivered in the doctor’s office, and the recovery is immediate. The result takes effect in 5-7 days for Dysport® and 7-10 days for Botox.
The results generally last for approximately three to six months. For those who have never had it before, Dr. Olding will usually ask his patients to return for a follow-up visit a week or so after their first injection to discuss results and for a quick touch-up if necessary.
The Botox/Dysport® treatments may cause temporary discomfort and bruising. Potential risks include facial asymmetry or sagging of the brow or upper eyelid.
Botox/Dysport® patients, please download and review our list of aspirin-like medications and refrain from taking any of these medications and supplements for at least 2 weeks prior to your consultation with Dr. Olding, should you desire to have your injections that same day. Also, please do not wear makeup if you are planning fillers. Bring your regular facial cleanser with you to remove makeup you may be wearing to the appointment.
My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful
My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons I settled on Dr. Olding because I believed he was the most qualified and showed the best judgment while explaining my procedure to me. He was also recommended to me by my trusted dermatologist so that factored into my decision as well.
