Botox / Dysport

When you look in the mirror, do you feel like what you see is not an accurate reflection of how you feel?

When you look in the mirror, do you feel like what you see is not an accurate reflection of how you feel?  We all know aging is inevitable – but beauty can be timeless when guided by an expert set of helping hands. Botox and Dysport can work wonders when administered with precision and care, without looking overdone. Dr. Travis Shaw and our master injector believe in empowering your confidence by consistently delivering stunning, natural results. Listed in Allergan’s top 10% of all injectable practices, Travis Shaw, MD is the place where facial experience and excellence thrives.

Botox vs Dysport

Botox and Dysport are popular neurotoxin injections commonly used to smooth out wrinkles. These injections reduce fine lines by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Highly versatile, Botox and Dysport can be administered to address various different lines in the face. One of our most common treatment areas include the “11” lines between the eyes. When you frown, muscles over each brow pull in towards the nose and cause the skin in this area to crinkle into vertical creases. Our master injectors can reduce the appearance of these creases with a fast and easy procedure without downtime. In a simple 5 minute procedure,  your eyes will soon look happier, giving a natural, well-rested look of approachability.

Botox and Dysport Process

Our Botox and Dysport injections are delivered quickly and painlessly. With experience, comes excellence.  We administer thousands of more injectors than the average practice, placing us in the top 10% of injectors by Allergan (parent company of Botox). Travis Shaw, MD can give you the best treatment in Richmond and Midlothian, Virginia. When you meet with our master injector, you can expect an attentive ear and warm smile. During your consultation, she will listen to your goals and provide a custom treatment plan designed just for you. Afterward, the actual injection procedure takes about 5 minutes. No downtime is required after the treatment, meaning you can have it done during your lunch break! Neither Botox nor Dysport result in marks on your face – your results will look natural, allowing you to maintain discretion. No anesthetic is needed for the injections, but we may numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream to reduce discomfort at your request.

Treatment Results

Dysport results can be seen within a couple of days and tend to last 3-4 months. Botox results take a bit longer, typically 3-7 days and last around 3-4 months. In some cases, both of these products have been shown to last up to 6 months. Neither of these treatments are invasive and both provide a significant reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in the treatment area. Your skin will look radiant, but not overdone. Injections at the Travis Shaw, MD clinic are delivered with the precision and care necessary to provide subtle, yet impressive results.

Treatment Recovery and Downtime

Our philosophy is that you should feel confident at any age. Our Botox and Dysport treatments are administered specifically to minimize downtime. While some bruising may be possible after treatment, it is highly unlikely. We use time tested techniques such as a gentle touch and very small needles to minimize this risk.  At Travis Shaw, MD, we take every precaution to minimize pain and discomfort. To us, expert care means beauty without compromise.
