Smooth Away Lines and Wrinkles
Westport | Fairfield CT
Neurotoxins are among today’s most prevalent non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Popular options are Dysport®, BOTOX®, Xeomin® and Jeuveau®. There are subtle differences between each in terms of onset, responsiveness of the tissue to the injection and longevity of each treatment. Dr. Ellen Mahony will explain to you these differences and customize a treatment plan for you, often combining multiple products to achieve the optimal goal. These non-surgical injections soften and often eliminate lines and wrinkles across the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, near the mouth, and between the eyebrows.

What are the benefits of neurotoxins?
Dr. Mahony, a board-certified plastic surgeon, can use neurotoxins to soften your look and add subtle contours to your face. With a keen knowledge of facial anatomy, Ellen balances facial asymmetry as well as brow position, to create a non-surgical eyebrow lift.
The treatment is remarkably quick, simple and comfortable, and you’ll see dramatic results after just a few days.
The effects of neurotoxins can be enhanced by other cosmetic treatments such as facial cosmetic surgery, injectable fillers, chemical peel, thread lift or PRP procedures. In addition, we highly recommend one of our regenerative aesthetic procedures such as ALMI, a Vampire Facelift® or Vampire Facial®.
How do neurotoxins work?
Neurotoxins that address lines related to excess movement on the face are made from a purified and diluted protein. When one of these products is injected into specific muscles in tiny amounts, it relaxes facial muscles and allows the overlying skin to smooth out. Neurotoxins are ideal for treating “dynamic wrinkles” related to both expression and repetitive movements, such as raising your eyebrows or furrowing your brow.
How much neurotoxin will I need?
The amount of neurotoxin Dr. Mahony uses is completely personalized to best achieve your aesthetic goals. As an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon, she will refine your treatment to ensure that the outcome is neither overly obvious nor diminishes your ability to express yourself and communicate.

I feel it is important to customize the treatment and fee structure to each unique individual. Let’s look at the forehead again. A younger person may have very few lines which are not deep and only need three injections. In comparison, an older person who has many deep, etched lines may require six injections. If you are paying by the “area,” one of these people is probably over paying and the other is under paying for this ”forehead area.” In addition, the amount of product in each injection can vary. As an example, I may use two units in some places and four units in others. I prefer to customize the treatment to each person so that you are only paying for what you actually use. You are unique and your treatment should be also! This almost always creates a savings for you!
Interested in Botox & Dysport?
BOTOX & DYSPORT
The onset of action is a little quicker for Dysport- you are likely to see a reduction in lines related to animation in just a few days. Botox takes a bit longer to kick in, closer to a week. I recommend waiting two weeks before considering adding more neurotoxins to the treated area to ensure that you are not over treated.
Another difference is the size of the treatment area that will be affected by these products. Dysport covers a little more “real estate” than Botox. As an example, the forehead area may require six injections of Botox but only three injections of Dysport.
