BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic enhancement available, and the similar injectable treatment Dysport™ offers many of the same aesthetic benefits. These facial rejuvenation treatments can be effective ways of temporarily diminishing wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet, giving you a smoother, more refreshed and youthful aesthetic. BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport™ injections can be performed right here at our practice in a quick procedure with almost immediate results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to smooth out fines lines, wrinkles, and creases along the face to give you a more youthful appearance. Facial wrinkles are caused by the contracture of underlying muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic works to temporarily stop those muscles from contracting, thereby smoothing out the area and diminishing signs of aging. The treatment can be an effective, though more subtle, alternative to surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures.
During treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, injections will be made in the areas targeted for treatment with an ultra-fine needle. A topical ointment can be applied before treatment to make the injections as comfortable as possible. The entire procedure typically takes about 15 minutes to complete, and there is usually no downtime required after treatment.
Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic are often apparent within the first few days after treatment, and even greater improvement may be seen over the following few weeks. Patients may experience some mild redness and swelling after the procedure, but this should dissipate quickly. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic usually last at least three to four months, and can be maintained with occasional “touch-up” treatments.
Prescription Dysport™ is a new injectable treatment that offers many of the same benefits as BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dysport™ can temporarily improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as other signs of aging in the face.
Dysport™ is a nonsurgical injectable procedure that serves to temporarily deactivate contraction of facial muscles in the areas targeted for treatment. That contraction is what ultimately causes wrinkles to appear. The result is a smoother, more youthful and refreshed appearance. Injections with Dysport™ are made with a very fine needle, and a topical numbing agent can be applied to the targeted areas before treatment to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. The entire Dysport™ procedure often lasts only about 15 minutes, and can be completed over your lunch hour.
There is typically no downtime associated with Dysport™ procedures, and patients can generally expect to resume normal daily routines immediately after treatment. Any redness, bruising, or swelling present after the procedure should fade in the next few days. Results from Dysport™ should be most apparent within a week following treatment, and often last at least three to four months. The effects of Dysport™ can be maintained with follow-up treatments.

About East Providence
In 1641, the Plymouth Colony purchased from the Indians a large tract of land which today includes the northern half of East Providence (from Watchemoket to Rumford), Rehoboth, Massachusetts, Seekonk, Massachusetts, and part of Pawtucket. Four years later, John Brown of Plymouth bought a considerably smaller piece of land from the Indians, which today comprises the southern part of East Providence (Riverside), Barrington, and a small part of Swansea. Finally, in 1661, Plymouth completed the “North Purchase” from which Attleboro, North Attleboro, and Cumberland were later formed. Over the whole the authorities gave the name ‘Rehoboth’. The center of this large settlement, which is sometimes referred to as ‘Old Rehoboth’, is within the borders of modern East Providence. In 1812, the western half of Old Rehoboth was set off as a separate township called Seekonk, Massachusetts. Old Rehoboth’s town center now became the heart of Old Seekonk. Finally, in 1862, the western part of Old Seekonk was ceded to Rhode Island and incorporated as East Providence.
