Botox® (Botulinum toxin A) injections are used to treat certain lines and wrinkles of the upper face. Forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet lines on the sides of our eyes are the most common areas for Botox® injections. These lines are caused by our muscles involved in facial expression. As we age, these muscles gradually get stronger and bigger, eventually leaving a visible line between the muscle fibers. Botox® works by causing a temporary weakness/paralysis of the muscles, thus causing the wrinkle to diminish. After a muscle is injected with Botox®, it relaxes over the next few days with a maximum effect seen at 2 weeks. The Botox® will usually last for 3-4 months for the first few treatments. With repeated treatments, the effect tends to last longer, up to 6 months.
Dr. Michelle Kaplan a premier provider of Botox® in the Eugene area has had extensive training in utilizing Botox® to treat frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet around the eye, chin dimpling, upper lip lines and neck lines. Effects of Botox® are usually seen within 3 days and results last an average of 3-4 months. Our staff provides free consultations and individualizes every Botox® treatment. Pricing is per unit and is very affordable.Laughter, sadness, anger and surprise – your face shows all of your emotions to the world. And a lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines.
All these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years – but thanks to today’s technology, we can significantly reduce their appearance on your face. With Botox® Cosmetic treatment, you will be able to see a visible improvement to the wrinkles on your face – and you’ll have smoother skin for up to four months.
We administer small injections directly into the area you’d like to improve. If you’re concerned about pain, or have sensitive facial areas, we’ll be happy to apply an ice pack or anesthetic cream to the area we’ll be working on.
The purified protein from the injection goes to work immediately on the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. You will begin to notice visible improvements over the next month.

Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport®, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
And because Dysport® delivers the natural-looking results people want, 97% of users say they’d do it again.
HOW DOES DYSPORT® WORK?
Dysport® treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.
HOW LONG DOES DYSPORT® LAST?
You’ve got better things to do than think about what your frown lines look like. The majority of users see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment. In just one 10- to 20-minute treatment, Dysport® may help improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. Another plus? There is minimal downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
IS DYSPORT® RIGHT FOR ME?
Stand up to those lines with Dysport®. If you’re under 65 and seeking treatment to improve the look of wrinkles between your eyebrows, ask your specialist if Dysport® is right for you.
