Have Lines And Wrinkles On The Upper Face Left You Looking Tired, Angry, Or Sad?
Botox® & Dysport® – Relax Deep-Set Wrinkles and Folds
Botox® is one of the most requested non-surgical procedures for wrinkle reduction. While the injectable is ideal for treating the individual wrinkles causing you grief, the sister product Dysport® helps address various lines and wrinkles on a broader spectrum. Karolak Facial Plastic Surgeon offers both injectables allowing for a more customized treatment with final results that are smooth and natural-looking.
How Does Botox® & Dysport® Work?
Botox® and Dysport® are advanced forms of botulinum toxin type A. These injectables act as neuromodulators by severing communication between the nerves and muscle tissue. Once administered, the toxin gradually relaxes muscles to leave you looking as youthful and refreshed on the outside as you feel on the inside. Botox® and Dysport® also help slow the aging process by decreasing the formation of wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions.
Am I a Good Candidate
For Botox® or Dysport®?
Botox® and Dysport® are primarily used for deep dynamic wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. You may be a suitable candidate for one or both injectables if you’re bothered by crow’s feet, forehead lines, or unwanted brow furrows. Botulinum injections have a variety of cosmetic applications that can be beneficial for patients at different stages of aging.
Botulinum injections are best for wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements. Botox® and Dysport® may not be right for you if your lines and wrinkles are a result of sun-damaged skin. In these instances, Dr. Karolak may suggest dermal fillers and/or skin resurfacing procedures.

What Results Will I See?*
Results from botulinum injections can be seen fairly quickly. Although your individual circumstances may vary the outcome, most patients are able to see initial results in just 3-5 days. An optimal outcome will be noticeable in 1-2 weeks depending on the treatment area, the severity of your concerns, and the injectable chosen. Botox® and Dysport® can last upwards of 3-4 months when applied correctly by a skilled provider.
I can’t say enough on how much I love and appreciate Dr. Karolak. His bedside manner and his creativity is amazing. Some doctors don’t have an eye for what really fits someone’s face. I go to him for Botox, but I know he’s great at all injections and facial surgeries. So many people think that you can go to any Doctor for Botox, but that is false. I’ve been to so many plastic surgeons – top of the line – and there was always a problem, but never with Dr. Karolak he’s the best!! I leave feeling confident in what he did. Never any concerns and never any problems thank you so much…*
