Dysport is a non-surgical, noninvasive injectable that smooths lines and wrinkles in the forehead and between the brows. A specially-developed formula with an active ingredient called botulinum toxin (abobotulinumtoxin A), it works similarly to BOTOX, inhibiting the contraction of the muscles below the skin at the injection site to create a beautiful smoothing effect.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is an injectable muscle relaxer that penetrates below the skin layer to inhibit the contraction of the muscles at the injection site. When injected with exacting precision and care, BOTOX can take years off your look, leaving you looking youthful and refreshed.

Dr. Flugstad for BOTOX – injecting skill matters.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Flugstad has received exentensive training in all forms of facial rejuvenation, including Botox treatment.

Additionally, he has an extraordinarily detailed understanding of the anatomy beneath the skin’s surface. He has even performed extensive research and presented at national meetings on the topic of nerve dysfunction and repair.

While such knowledge is important in achieving the best possible outcome with any cosmetic treatment—whether non-invasive dermal fillers, cosmetic surgery or any other procedure—it is especially true when injecting BOTOX. Dr. Flugstad takes a conservative approach to ensure the result appears fresh and natural.

Should I try BOTOX?

If you are troubled by any of the following facial issues, you are likely a good candidate for BOTOX injections:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical lines between brows
  • Forehead creases

Why have BOTOX treatments?

If you feel that forehead creases and lines, frown lines between your brows, or crow’s feet add years to your look, consider BOTOX injections. Take note that the skills of your injector are the most critical aspect of a achieving a fresh, natural result. The last thing you want is to have your face appear expressionless, uneven, or frozen.

What are the risks of BOTOX?

BOTOX has been administered to hundreds of thousands of pf people annually and is very safe.

Further, it only stays in the body for a period of approximately six months, so unwanted side effects are temporary. However, as small bruise, of a drooping eyelid, or the inability to control facial muscles that were not intended for treatment, or a “frozen look” from being over-injected can be both uncomfortable as well as unsightly.

Dr. Flugstad and his staff can be depended on to provide treatments that meet the highest standards of care, delivered in a relaxing, compassionate spa-like environment.


Are there other muscle relaxers and how safe are they?

There are other FDA-approved injectable muscle relaxers such as Dysport or Xeomin, but all must be administered by a trained physician. Safety is largely dependent on the experience and training of the treating practitioner. Beware of “BOTOX parties” and claims of less expensive, but comparable, products offered by non-medical personnel. The products may be counterfeit, not FDA-approved and in some cases have proven to be toxic. When considering BOTOX, it could not be more important that your treatments are performed by a highly-skilled medical professional with years of experience injecting the product.

Will I need more BOTOX over time?

Not necessarily. In many cases, continued treatments “train” the injected muscles so that they remain more relaxed and continue to do so over time. Many patients have remarked that they require less units to maintain a fresh, rejuvenated look. Others may notice the product is no longer working as it once did and may be advised to try injections with another neuromodulator, Dysport.

To our current and prospective patients:

We are aware of the current activity of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 in the region.

As always, safety and quality is paramount in our practice, as such we maintain rigorous cleansing actions to maintain an absolutely sterile environment. In addition to this we are closely following the Department of Health guidelines for prevention of the virus.

We are now seeing patients on a limited basis, based on urgency and need. We are prioritizing patients with active breast cancer and other medical issues that cannot wait. We are continuing to offer virtual consultation for those that request it.

Under strict sanitation protocols, we are continuing to operate our office, and office based surgical facility. We are welcoming all new and previous patients, provided you have no history of cough, fever, cold, or flu symptoms, or exposure to anyone with known COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks.

If you are feeling sick, you will need to call your primary doctor to see if testing in needed. We are performing procedures at the local hospital campuses on a limited basis. We do have the advantage of operating a Joint Commission accredited surgical facility within our practice, which we feel maximizes safety and limits exposure to infectious diseases such as COVID-19. We are continuing to perform elective surgery that is previously scheduled, on a case by case basis.

We will continue to keep you, our valued patients, updated on any changes.
