IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
After years of squinting, laughing, and worrying, the skin around our eyes, forehead, and lips often develops deep expression lines and wrinkles. These make you appear older, tired, or stressed. If you want to look younger and stave off the further development of wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are excellent options.
How long does the process take?
The muscle relaxing injections take only 10-15 minutes to complete. Many patients come in during their lunchtime break. At Epi Center MedSpa, we customize treatments to your specific needs and request 30 minutes for your session.
How quickly do I see the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®?
Your initial results appear two days after Dysport® and 4-5 days after BOTOX® Cosmetic, but the whole effect is seen around 14 days.
How long do BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® treatments last?
Typically the results last for 3-4 months. Repeated injections are necessary to preserve the achieved effects, so follow-up sessions are recommended. Often patients receive three to four treatments a year to easily maintain their youthful appearance.
What is the downtime of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® treatments?

Who performs the BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injections?
Epi Center MedSpa has nurses, nurse practitioners, and PAs who are highly skilled and completely understand facial anatomy. Their knowledge and experience significantly lower the risk that you will experience an effect of droopiness or a “frozen” appearance. We have been providing BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® treatments for more than 15 years and are an Allergen Platinum member and the number one Dysport® provider in San Francisco.
What is the difference between BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® come from different manufacturers but treat the same cosmetic conditions using the same active ingredient – botulinum toxin A. Over time, people may develop a resistance to BOTOX® Cosmetic, and subsequently, they may get better results with Dysport®. As a practice, we believe that Dysport® lasts a little longer. It is faster acting and has a more gradual and forgiving transitioning period between treatments.
How quickly can I get an appointment?
