Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center, the only Platinum Level Practice on the Seacoast.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments are quick and easy and are highly effective at smoothing the “frown lines” that appear between your brows, forehead wrinkles, smile lines or “crow’s feet”, corners of your mouth, chin dimples, hyperhydrosis or excessive sweating, giving a moderate brow lift, “bunny lines” or pursed mouth, marionette lines, fine lines around the mouth and platysmal banding (neck wrinkles and sagging).
The treatment lasts roughly 5 to 10 minutes and involves several small injections. A single session of BOTOX Cosmetic at Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center keeps muscles relaxed and brows smooth for up to four months, at which point treatment may be repeated. BOTOX Cosmetic has been tested extensively and is approved by the FDA.
Facial wrinkles are caused by everyday muscle activity, most of the time. As we grow older, skin loses its elasticity (tightness). The collagen under our skin becomes thinner, causing lines or wrinkles where the skin creases. BOTOX Cosmetic ‘erases’ lines caused by muscle repeated activity. BOTOX Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Within days, patients feel they look more natural and relaxed.

What exactly is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a highly refined form of a naturally-occurring protein. When injected, this protein can relax overactive muscles such as those that cause frown lines. BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is quick, requires no surgery, and smooths the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop over time.
Are BOTOX Cosmetic treatments safe?
For over 10 years, physicians have been treating a variety of conditions using BOTOX Cosmetic. Our Portsmouth, New Hampshire practice is proud to provide BOTOX Cosmetic, which has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines in patients between the ages of 18 and 65.
What happens in a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment session?
When you have BOTOX treatment, Dr. Lawrence Gray or Dr. Mark Ballentyne administer several injections, strategically located to best treat your frown lines. The entire treatment takes about 5 to 10 minutes and requires no anesthetic, though a light topical anesthetic cream may be used.
What kind of results can I expect from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?

Dysport is a new product, similar to Botox Cosmetic, used to reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows, across the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet) and at the outside corners of the mouth. Dysport takes just a few minutes and lasts 3 to 4 months. With repeated treatments, the effects may last up to 6 months.
Both Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are a natural, purified protein used to treat the cause of the wrinkles–overactive muscles — by blocking the signals that tell those muscles to contract. This can be done partially or totally, depending on the desired effect. Botox Cosmetic is now FDA approved to treat wrinkles. Dysport is also FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles. Both products have been used in Europe for over 20 years.
Both Dysport and Botox Cosmetic are safe and highly effective to smooth wrinkles.Both Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are injected with a very small needle in tiny amounts to the recommended area. Dysport usually lasts 3-4 months, however with repeated treatments, the effects may last up to 6 months.
When administered properly by a highly trained clinician, you will still be able to make normal facial excoriations, but without the wrinkles or frown lines. Patients commonly report that that other people tell them that they appear rested and relaxed.
