Not All Botox or Dysport Wrinkle Treatments are Equal

Have you had a bad experience with your Botox or Dysport treatment? Did you think Botox made you look too frozen, made your brow shape weird, made your eyelids droop and as a result look more tired? Have you heard of Botox causing the inability to smile, or making wrinkles under the eyes worse? Did you get a big blackeye last time you wanted your crow’s feet treated? Are you scared to try Botox for the first time or ever again because you think it is just not for you?

The truth is that the complications mentioned above are mostly caused by the injector’s technique. The good news is that most of these potential complications can be avoided.

Dr. Tess Mauricio, a San Diego Dermatologist, personally administers all injectables (Botox and Dysport) to ensure you experience the expert’s touch and get results you are thrilled with! There may be centers that offer these products cheaper but no one does it better! And with unbelievable specials like: Buy one area of Dysport, get second area free and Get Free Botox with laser treatments over $3000, an Expert’s touch is a luxury you can afford!

Experience the Expert’s Touch:

  1. In most centers, you will not get a Stanford trained, well respected cosmetic dermatologist and TV personality to administer your injections. Most injectors offering less expensive treatments are RN’s or other MD’s who are not dermatologists or plastic surgeons. Expertise and technique matter in order to minimize possible complications such as bruising, eyelid droop, uneven results, eyebrows too high, and even inability to smile!
    Dr. Mauricio will evaluate you and personalize your treatment to fit your needs. For example, if your brows are already too flat, or you already have some eyelid droop, she may treat the forehead differently than if your brows arch too high naturally. If you already have problems with loose undereye skin she may treat the crow’s feet differently. If you wanted a lift in your brows, she can design your treatment to give you a “chemical brow lift”, where correctly placed Botox/Dysport will cause a natural (nonsurgical) elevation of eyebrows which can open up your eyes nicely, make you look younger and more awake and pull up extra upper eyelid skin. Dr. Mauricio never uses a one size fits all approach to injectables – you are unique and so should your treatments. That is the difference you deserve! 
  2. We use the smallest needles – patients are often pleasantly surprised how painless the injections are. Especially in injections around the eyes to treat crow’s feet, many patients say they heard their friends get lots of bruising when treated by other practitioners. Dr. Mauricio’s technique minimizes this risk allowing you to get treated around the eyes without having to deal with a black eye for 2 weeks!
  3. If you are worried about injection pain, we even can apply topical numbing cream before your treatment. We also have a special cooling machine that can be used to minimize discomfort.
  4. If you are not 100% thrilled with your results, after 2 weeks, Dr. Mauricio encourages you to come back to the clinic – all you probably need is a little tweaking to get that perfect result!

And keep in mind, ask for the number of Botox units you are getting. Units matter! If lower number of units are used, the treatment for an area may be offered cheaper and it may still work. But, it won’t last as long! Make sure you get what you pay for.
