Getting older is inevitable, but aging is a choice.
A lifetime of laughs, squints, frowns, and other facial expressions leads to the development of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
While invasive procedures like a facelift surgery can provide effective anti-aging results, nonsurgical Botox® and Dysport® treatments have become increasingly popular because they offer no downtime and limited side effects.

How it works
Botox and Dysport are two different brands of injectable neuromodulators derived from botulinum toxin type A.
When injected in small and controlled doses at our Albany office, botulinum toxin can safely and temporarily immobilize small muscles. Botox and Dysport work by blocking the signals sent from the brain to the targeted muscles, preventing muscles from contracting and wrinkles from forming.
While injectable fillers work to rehydrate skin and counteract wrinkles, Botox and Dysport work to prevent wrinkles from developing in the first place.
Injectable neuromodulators can be used both by patients who already have wrinkles because of aging and sun damage, or for younger patients who are interested in taking proactive steps to prevent signs of aging later in life. By freezing the muscles responsible for creating frown lines and crow’s feet, regular Botox and Dysport injections can keep skin looking smooth and wrinkle-free.
What to expect
Results vary depending on which product we use.
Patients who receive Botox injections see visible results in four to seven days on average, while Dysport results usually become visible in two to three days. Once results have developed, patients can enjoy their more youthful appearance for an average of three to four months.
Botox and Dysport results are only temporary, so we require maintenance appointments for sustained results.
Commonly, patients schedule their appointments for Dysport or Botox in Albany every three months to ensure they maintain their results year-round. With continuous use of Botox and Dysport, results may even last longer and require less product volume.
Patients need no downtime or recovery following appointments, and we do not require them to take time off work or other obligations.
We commonly schedule Botox and Dysport treatments during lunch breaks thanks to their lack of side effects and quick appointments.
Before & after
The truth is, there is no "right age" to consider treatment with neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport. Many patients wonder if they are too young or too old to try Botox. Some begin treatment as a preventative measure when lines and wrinkles first appear. Others wait until later in life when these expression lines become more prominent. To determine if you may benefit from Dysport or Botox in Albany, it’s best to schedule a consultation with a licensed professional.
Dysport and Botox are technique-sensitive treatments. You can trust these neuromodulators to deliver subtle results when you seek treatment from a licensed, trained medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had "work done."
Since we use hair-fine needles, we do not consider the Botox & Dysport injection process painful. Most patients report a brief period of minimal discomfort during the injections, which does not persist after we complete the procedure.
A week before the treatment, Dr. Levitt advises patients to stop consuming alcohol and taking medications or supplements that thin the blood like aspirin, ibuprofen, Gingko Biloba, or Ginseng. This will help minimize bruising after the procedure.
Many people mistakenly group neuromodulators and fillers together, when they are vastly different products. We typically treat a patient's signs of aging with a combination of Dsyport or Botox and fillers. The neuromodulators work on limiting muscle contractions that cause wrinkles while fillers provide additional cushion to the skin, literally filling in wrinkles or scars and adding volume to areas of hollowness or lack of definition. During your consultation with our skincare experts, we will determine the cosmetic injectable plan that best meets your goals.

Dr. Levitt is very precise!
Dr. Levitt takes the time one needs to be heard and never pushed me toward a treatment I didn’t want or need. He’s kind, smart, and a real human being. Drove two hours just to get an ablative facial service. He has great care protocols and made the experience comfortable. Will keep coming back.
