Choose the brand medical providers and patients know and trust: BOTOX Cosmetic. All BOTOX injections aren’t equal. Your results can vary widely based on the skill and experience of your injector, and that’s why you can trust us at Novo Aesthetics in Ridgefield and Wallingford, Connecticut. Novo Aesthetics understands the fine points of facial anatomy and aesthetics, which means you get a gorgeous and natural result.
BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles beneath your wrinkles. It reduces muscle movement to keep lines and wrinkles away, but you can still move your face and will look completely natural. In the underarms, BOTOX works by temporarily switching off your sweat glands in that area.
Botox can treat many different areas for exceptional results.
- Frown lines: smooths the lines between brows
- Crow’s feet: reduces lines at eye corners
- Forehead lines: smooths long lines across the forehead
- Eyebrow lift: subtle eyebrow elevation
- Nefertiti lift: neck and jawline tightening
- Smile enhancement: reduces a gummy smile
- Neck lines: cords around the neck
- Mouth: corners of the mouth to lift drooping
In addition to all of the aesthetic uses, Botox can be very helpful in hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and migraine headache treatment.
If you have fine lines and wrinkles and want to reclaim your youthful appearance without invasive procedures or surgery, you’re probably a great BOTOX candidate.
BOTOX is injected with a very fine needle and is well-tolerated by almost everyone. The treatment takes 10-20 minutes, and you’re back to your normal routine immediately.
BOTOX usually takes effect in three days to a week. It takes effect in some areas faster. For example, the International Hyperhidrosis Society says that BOTOX can take effect in the underarm area in as little as two days when injected for excessive sweating.
BOTOX prevents wrinkles for three to six months. In the underarms, BOTOX lasts anywhere from four months to a year, possibly longer.
As with all injections, there’s a risk of mild swelling and bruising. However, it typically recedes after a couple of days. Novo Aesthetics uses AccuVein®, a state-of-the-art reader that reveals all facial blood vessels, to avoid bruising.
To diminish swelling, Novo Aesthetics recommends ice packs. You can also take arnica, a natural bruise reducer. Avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, fish oil, vitamin E, and ginkgo biloba for one week prior to, and one week after, your BOTOX treatment.

It’s not a facial transformation—far from it. Dysport treatment temporarily improves the look of your moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in a way that suits your style. And no one will know—unless you tell them. Don’t let your frown lines between your eyebrows define you. For adults who want a natural look, Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, long-lasting prescription injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows—without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.
Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions. One injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines.
Although office visits can vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes.
The majority of users see improvement in just 2-3 days after treatment.
Dysport improves the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 5 months.

You know those pesky little wrinkles between your eyebrows that won’t go away? Well, they’re called glabellar lines, or “frown lines.” Jeuveau is an injectable treatment that works to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines in adults.
When injected, Jeuveau temporarily prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex. The result? In clinical trials, Jeuveau was shown to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
Your initial Jeuveau treatment will establish baseline results that can be improved with a second treatment if desired, or maintained with follow-up treatments every three to six months.
Jeuveau is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment for mild to severe lines and has a positive safety protocol.
Most of our Jeuveau patients return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment. Jeuveau treatments take approximately 10 to 15 minutes and may be performed during your lunch break.
You will experience the initial results within the first few days and will see the full results after seven to ten days.

It’s a part of life — our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc) factors. As part of the natural aging process, volume in the hands can also deteriorate over time, making them appear aged.
The good news is that you can do something about the signs of aging in the face and hands with products in the Restylane family — to help reveal a younger-looking you.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, introduced in 2017, are FDA-approved to smooth smile and laugh lines. They are the only fillers designed with Galderma’s unique manufacturing process, XpresHAn Technology™, which creates a smooth, injectable gel that can give the skin a natural, soft look, and is proven to maintain natural movement in the lower part of the face. Since the lower part of the face is constantly in motion, it’s important to use a filler that supports natural movement and facial expressions.
Both Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne have been used outside the U.S. under the name Emervel since 2011, so safety and efficacy are well-established with more than one million treatments worldwide. Results with Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are clinically proven to last up to 12 months.
Restylane Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler to be FDA-approved for both the face and hands – the midface/cheek area, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, oral commissures (lines at the corner of the mouth), and the back of the hands. Restylane Lyft restores volume to the cheeks and hands for a smoother, more youthful looking appearance. One of the most versatile products in the Restylane portfolio, Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane, has been on the market for more than 10 years and has a proven track record of safety and efficacy. Results are clinically proven to last up to 18 months in the nasolabial folds, 12 months in the cheeks, and up to 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds in the hands.

Sculptra is a new injectable used to fight wrinkles and sagging skin by stimulating the skin’s collagen production to help restore the cheeky plumpness of healthy skin. It is an alternative anti-aging treatment to injectable dermal fillers, skin creams, fat injections and implants. Collagen is an important structural protein found in connective tissue. Its function is to keep the skin firm, youthful and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles or sagging. Fat loss beneath the skin also results in drooping skin, hollowed cheeks, indentations and depressions in the face.
Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds on the face. Administered with the appropriate injection technique from a trained specialist, Sculptra is clinically approved for:
- Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), also called “smile lines”
- Lines framing the mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.
Sculptra is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last up to two years. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary.
The Sculptra regimen delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle, yet noticeable, results in the reduction of facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple months following treatment.
Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a molecule which is biodegradable, so it does not harm the body and is easily broken down and absorbed. We use a very effective topical numbing agent to numb the skin prior to the injections. The Sculptra powder is also reconstituted with water and lidocaine, so you will feel more numb as the injections are being done. Most people are surprised at how comfortable the treatments are.
You should avoid taking the following medications for at least 7 days prior to your injections to minimize bruising:
- Any type of anti-inflammatory medication – including Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, etc.
- Any type of Omega-3 supplements such as fish oil, flax seed oil, etc.
- Vit E.
