BOTOX and DYSPORT are well-known names in the world of facial injectables, and they are wildly successful in the treatment of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Elliott and Dr. Summer Black, perform this nonsurgical skin treatment (made with a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A) on men and women to ease the look of aging around the mouth and eyes.
Many BOTOX and Dysport patients report that there is a tiny sting to the injection, but it is worth the results you will see within 3 – 5 days as it relaxed the facial muscles to make the skin look supple, smooth and youthful for approximately 3 – 4 months (research suggests that long-term use of BOTOX leads to a longer duration of the effects). If you are looking for a way to look younger without surgery, we recommend coming into our office at Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery for a consultation, and our plastic surgeons will be able to recommend the best injectable treatment for your desired results.

"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017

This makes the whole experience so pleasant. I'm very satisfied with everything, which is why I will continue to use Dr Summer Black."- M.C. / Google / Mar 19, 2019
"The first time I met Doctor Black she asked me what I didn't like about my face, and once I told her, recommended a procedure that I felt comfortable with. Every time I have gone into her office she has asked me if I am satisfied with my results. I trust her completely and would highly recommend her!"- S. / Healthgrades / Sep 02, 2019
"I had an amazingly pleasant experience, unusual description fro surgery I know, but Dr. Elliott Black, his staff & the Surgery Center made me so incredibly comfortable in my decision to have Dr. Black as my surgeon that I never had a worry.I live in Las Vegas & interviewed several doctors there then met with Dr. Black when visiting my parents in New Orleans (where I grew up) & left his office knowing I would have complete confidence in him.Every time I had a question I'd call from Las Vegas, his wonderful assistant, Patty, would answer every question, she was so kind & sincere.I had no nausea after surgery, the nurses at the Surgery Center were wonderful & efficient.It was so nice to spend the first night after surgery there, so many doctors send you home shortly after surgery. Dr. Black does not & it was so comforting to be cared for professionally in those hours after surgery.Dr. Black came to see me several times that afternoon, called me that evening & was back to see me the next morning.During my days of recovery he phoned every day & gave me his cell number to call him any time. He also took time to speak with/call my husband & my parents.My recovery was much shorter than many, due to his skill & care, I'm on my way home now but will be back to Dr. Black for any plastic surgery I may have in the future."- T. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2019
Do I Qualify?
The best candidates for BOTOX or DYSPORT injections are in good health who show the following signs:
- Dynamic wrinkles
- Smile and/or frown lines
- Lines around the eyes (also known as "crow’s feet")
What to Expect
The plastic surgeon will look at the quantity, depth, and location of your dynamic wrinkles to mark the areas of the muscles of the face that will be treated. With an ultra-fine syringe, BOTOX or Dysport will be carefully injected into the marked areas. Numbing creams and cold compresses can are used to make your treatment more comfortable and most patients report minimum to no discomfort when the needle pierces the skin.
You should be able to return to your regular activities after Botox injections. We encourage all of our BOTOX patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to avoid anything that puts pressure on the treated areas such as facials or massages for the first 3 days after treatment. Complete results after BOTOX are visible (smoother forehead and diminished wrinkles) in about 10-14 days. Many patients feel that BOTOX treatments make their skin look radiant, they feel younger, and look well rested.
It’s a low-risk, easy and affordable solution to get younger-looking skin in a matter of days, with no surgery or anesthesia required.
