"My experience with Dr. Klausner has exceeded all expectations. I first came to Dr. Klausner for a consultant on an upper eyelid lift, which I ultimately proceeded with. Her counsel was balanced, and objective and felt very much like receiving advice from a trusted family member. Since then I have gone to Dr. Klausner for injectables. It's important to me to feel I look natural and she has always offered the best advice and approach to help me achieve that. I also came to Dr. Klausner to do the closure for a Mohs surgery I needed on my face in a delicate area above my mouth. The experience of having to have the skin cancer surgery was upsetting and I was very concerned about scarring. She was the only doctor I would have seen to help with the closure because I trusted her implicitly and knew that while I would never be able to avoid a scar - she would help me achieve the best result possible. On a personal note - she's simply a delightful and warm person and regardless of the reason for your visit - she makes it a very positive experience. Her reception staff is lovely as well."- J. / RealSelf / Jun 26, 2017
How do Botox and Dysport Work?
BOTOX and Dysport are safe and reliable injectable medications that block the actions of certain nerves. For wrinkles, this means relaxing the muscles that crease the skin or pull the skin down.
BOTOX and Dysport are very effective at:
- Smoothing wrinkles and folds, such as:
- Forehead worry lines
- Between the brows frown lines
- Crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes
- Vertical lines around the lips
- Dimpling of the chin
- Lifting the eyebrows and corners of the mouth
- Relaxing vertical neck bands
Expert injector Dr. Klausner uses BOTOX or Dysport in combination with injectable fillers for nonsurgical procedures, such as nonsurgical brow lifts and nonsurgical facelifts.
BOTOX and Dysport both come as a powder, and Dr. Klausner adds saline to turn the powder into a liquid suitable for injection. Dr. Klausner never dilutes either product more than necessary to cut costs. With each patient, Dr. Klausner opens a fresh bottle and dilutes the BOTOX or Dysport right before injection. The medication is then injected directly into very specific muscles of the face in order to achieve the desired effect. The BOTOX and Dysport proteins remain in the muscle for about 3 – 4 months, at which point, they are broken down by the body and excreted. At no point does BOTOX or Dysport get absorbed by the body. If injected correctly, BOTOX and Dysport do not have systemic effects throughout the body, and they only affect the muscles into which they are injected.
Side effects or problems with BOTOX or Dysport injections are almost exclusively due to inexperienced or unskilled injectors. This is why you should be very selective as to where you get your BOTOX or Dysport injections. You should know the qualifications and experience of the physician performing the treatment. Due to Dr. Klausner’s education and experience, including her double board certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, you can be confident that she has earned the title of an expert injector.
Properly done BOTOX and Dysport injections should result in a relaxed and smoothed facial appearance, achieving your desired look without making you look unnatural. Subtle, natural facial relaxation is what you should expect from your BOTOX or Dysport treatment.
