Botox gives the skin a fresh, youthful appearance only possible with smooth skin. We have professional staff who will take the time to explain Botox treatments to you. We consult with you to discover if this is the best treatment option for what you are trying to accomplish.
What is Botox? How does Botox Work?
Botox is a drug made from the botulinum toxin. It treats excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel disorders. The drug numbs muscles in the targeted area of the body. This stops over contraction and loosens the skin above the muscle group. The cosmetic benefits of the drug were noticed as a side effect of medical treatment. Now Botox is the world’s most popular dermal filler; treating millions of people each year.
The popularity of Botox as a cosmetic injection is due to its versatility and ease of use. A typical session only takes a few minutes. The drug is injected into the desired areas, and that’s it. The client leaves and will see results 3-5 days later. The effects will last up to a year, making it possible to try it without having to worry about it being permanent.
The toxins, or “tox” in Botox numb the muscles under the skin, relaxing it and alleviating wrinkles.
Is Botox Right for Me?
Are people telling you-you look tired, angry, or sad? Are you getting tired of it? No pun intended. What people are most likely seeing is the way time has had an effect on your skin. you could be showing signs of sleep loss due to stress at work or at home. You could also be showing wrinkles from smiling and laughing. It’s not always a bad thing!
Botox is a temporary fix to wrinkles. If you are looking for a minimally invasive injection with no downtime or healing necessary then Botox is your best option. There are many other more permanent procedures available. Many patients choose Botox because it’s easy and it isn’t permanent. If they don’t like the way it looks, they simply wait until the effects wear off.
Seeing a Difference with Dysport
Dysport is another injectable cosmetic, much like Botox. Dysport reduces the look of facial lines and wrinkles by alleviating muscle contractions under the skin. Without the tightening of the muscles, the wrinkling of the skin is reduced.
Dysport vs Botox: What’s the Difference?
Botox and Dysport are similar treatments. They both immobilize muscles under the skin that create wrinkles and other lines. There are a few differences between them, though.
Dysport can work within 1 to 3 days, While Botox usually sees results in 3 to 5 days. Dysport also diffuses more quickly, making it better for addressing crow’s feet and other wrinkle types that fan out over a larger area. The diffusion rate is the main difference.

I want to thank Dr. Gutowski for everything he has done for me. It took me a while to make the decision to have liposuction; I guess it was the usual concerns of having something go wrong. It took me another 6 months to find the right doctor. After reading reviews online, I finally selected Dr. Gutowski and have never regretted the decision; all of the positive reviews were true.When I met Dr. Gutowski and told him I was looking to have liposuction to reduce the love handles I have had since I was 18 years old despite being an avid runner, I was given a couple of options that would work for me. I never felt pressured to choose an option that I was not comfortable with and when we discussed what I could expect in terms of results; Dr. Gutowski was spot on. Everything I was told I would experience during the healing process to the results was true. My expectations were always met, it was amazing. For the first time in my life, I have no second thoughts with taking my shirt off while running outside. The actual procedure was not as painful as I anticipated, I was awake the entire time during my procedure, which gave me the opportunity to have a conversation with Dr. Gutowski and his staff reaffirming his genuine honesty, professionalism, and skilled attributes.After having such a wonderful experience with Dr. Gutowski, I know I will go to him again in the near future and would not hesitate to recommend him and his staff to my friends or family. I will always be grateful for this life changing experience.James
