The Art & Science of injectable treatment
We use an innovative approach to inject BOTOX®, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau which allows us to achieve an aesthetically desirable balance between positive and negative muscle groups producing a more relaxed and happier appearing face. Doing away with wrinkles which produce the frown and fine lines around the eye (crows feet), lifting skin around the eye and shaping the brow, as well as smoothing out forehead lines.
Lower facial muscle groups can be balanced too. Schedule a consultations with Dr. Futoryan to learn about how to achieve the most desirable result.
What are Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau Used For?
Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport, and Jeuveau are FDA-approved neuromodulators used for moderate to severe wrinkles. Although they are most commonly used for treatment of the upper face, there are many additional areas of the face and neck that may benefit from their use. Neuromodulators cause relaxation of facial muscles. The products work by blocking the communication between nerve endings and their surrounding muscles. The product is injected into specific regions to treat overactive muscles that cause wrinkles with facial animation. The effects are temporary and repeat treatments are necessary periodically to maintain the softening of facial furrows and creases.

The benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetics
- Improve lines around the eyes: The fine lines around your eyes are often referred to as “Crow’s feet”. A treatment can help relax the muscles associated with these fine line wrinkles and give you younger, fresher looking eyes.
- Improve Frown Lines: Everyone has them but as we grow older the parallel creases between your eyebrows become more prominent. These lines are commonly referred to as “11 lines”. BOTOX® Cosmetic can soften these lines so you do not look “angry” and take years off of your face.
- Improve Forehead Wrinkles: Our forehead is one of the first places Mother Nature begins to show her influence with horizontal lines across the forehead. If you are looking to smooth the signs of aging from your forehead, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you!
- Minimal downtime – Quick, 10 minute treatment that is easy to fit in your schedule.
- Feels like a pinch – Ice or a topical numbing cream will be used to enhance comfort.
- Real noticeable results – You may see results within 24-48 hours after treatment.
Many areas can be treated with Botox® and Dysport such as crows feet (around the eyes), chin, forehead, glabella (some people refer to this area as the 11’s between the brows), neck, and lines on the nose called “bunny lines”.
“I first went to Westport Dermatology for routine skin checks and Christina is thorough, knowledgeable and most importantly, makes me
feel comfortable that I am top of any potential issues. After a year or so, I decided to try cosmetic treatments including lasers, Scupltra (a complete game changer) and some Botox. Dr Futoryan is an expert and approaches the face from a holistic view – results are so natural. Highly recommend!”
