BOTOX® & Dysport®
We communicate feelings through our facial expressions, but a lifetime of smiling, frowning, and worrying, etches lines around our eyes and forehead contribute to a tired or prematurely aged appearance. BOTOX and Dysport injections soften these lines, such as crow’s feet, worry lines, and forehead wrinkles, to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Women and men from Glendale, Pasadena, and throughout the area choose Dr. Armen Vartany’s plastic surgery practice for BOTOX because of our reputation for producing natural-looking results.

Before & After Photos
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
Is BOTOX Right for You?
Whether you’re just noticing the first signs of lines emerging around your eyes or on your forehead, or your wrinkles are fairly well-established, BOTOX and Dysport can create smoother, more youthful-looking skin. And it’s not just crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and worry lines that BOTOX treats. Patients who want slimmer, more defined jawlines or who have “bunny lines” on their nose can get excellent results from BOTOX injections at our Burbank, CA, practice.
Young men and women in their 20s and early 30s come to our practice for “preventative” BOTOX, a technique that uses smaller doses to actually prevent lines and wrinkles from forming. Patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s can erase those lines with BOTOX or Dysport.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Unlike injectable fillers, which actually improve contours from within by adding volume beneath the skin, BOTOX and Dysport are neurotoxins, which work by disabling the tiny facial muscles used when we change expressions. These repeated expressions gradually create what are called dynamic wrinkles. Neurotoxins temporarily relax these muscles, alleviating the tension on the skin and smoothing these dynamic wrinkles. Our injector may recommend combining BOTOX or Dysport with soft tissue fillers, depending on the nature and severity of your facial lines.

Credentials You Can Trust
Can BOTOX Be Used for Other Conditions?
The FDA has approved BOTOX for the treatment of many other conditions—both cosmetic and medical. Besides being an anti-wrinkle treatment, BOTOX is used to treat:
- Excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)
- Vertical neck bands
- Migraine headaches
BOTOX and Dysport cosmetic injections are all performed by trained, registered nurse injectors under Dr. Vartany’s supervision.
How Much Do BOTOX Injections Cost?
The cost of BOTOX and Dysport injections varies depending on the practice. At our Burbank office, we charge $12 per unit for BOTOX and $12 per 3 units for Dysport (which is the equivalent of 1 unit of BOTOX Cosmetic.) The number of units needed to produce the desired results will determine the total cost for each patient.
The average number of units needed tend to fall between the following ranges:
- Frown lines: (between the eyebrows) 12.5 – 25
- Forehead: 2.5 – 20
- Crow’s feet: 5 – 15
These ranges reflect the conservative approach our injectors take, which produces results that look more natural, and the muscle movements remain visible. You can discuss the specific cosmetic goals you have with your nurse injector.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
It usually takes about 7 to 10 days to see the final results of BOTOX injections, although you’ll notice fine lines and wrinkles begin to diminish earlier. These results typically last about 4 months, although each patient’s experience may be different.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I begin to see results from my BOTOX® injection?
