BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic enhancement available, and the similar injectable treatment Dysport® offers many of the same aesthetic benefits. These facial rejuvenation treatments can be effective ways of temporarily diminishing wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet, giving you a smoother, more refreshed and youthful aesthetic. BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections can be performed right here at our practice in a quick procedure with almost immediate results.

Please contact our experienced RI plastic surgeon, Dr. Patrick Sullivan, to schedule a consultation for Dysport or BOTOX in Rhode Island injections at our practice.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to smooth out fines lines, wrinkles, and creases along the face to give you a more youthful appearance. Facial wrinkles are caused by the contracture of underlying muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic works to temporarily stop those muscles from contracting, thereby smoothing out the area and diminishing signs of aging. The treatment can be an effective, though more subtle, alternative to surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures.

During your Botox in Rhode Island treatments, injections will be made in the areas targeted for treatment with an ultra-fine needle. A topical ointment can be applied before treatment to make the injections as comfortable as possible. The entire procedure typically takes about 15 minutes to complete, and there is usually no downtime required after treatment.

Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic are often apparent within the first few days after treatment, and even greater improvement may be seen over the following few weeks. Patients may experience some mild redness and swelling after the procedure, but this should dissipate quickly. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic usually last at least three to four months, and can be maintained with occasional “touch-up” treatments.

Dysport®

Dysport_wrinkle_blockerPrescription Dysport® is a new injectable treatment that offers many of the same benefits as BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dysport® can temporarily improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as other signs of aging in the face.

Dysport® is a nonsurgical injectable procedure that serves to temporarily deactivate contraction of facial muscles in the areas targeted for treatment. That contraction is what ultimately causes wrinkles to appear. The result is a smoother, more youthful and refreshed appearance. Injections with Dysport® are made with a very fine needle, and a topical numbing agent can be applied to the targeted areas before treatment to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. The entire Dysport® procedure often lasts only about 15 minutes, and can be completed over your lunch hour.

There is typically no downtime associated with Dysport® procedures, and patients can generally expect to resume normal daily routines immediately after treatment. Any redness, bruising, or swelling present after the procedure should fade in the next few days. Results from Dysport® should be most apparent within a week following treatment, and often last at least three to four months. The effects of Dysport® can be maintained with follow-up treatments.

Everyone in this office is so friendly! They have always been on time for the appointment versus other doctors offices with a way of 30 minutes or more. I saw Dr. Maureen for Botox and filler I felt very comfortable with her and she advised me on what was best for my facial structure.they do practice a more natural look but I was happy with my results.

I really want to write about Maureen, the nurse expert in botox and dermal fillers. She is an artist extraordinaire! A couple of years ago I noticed that my lips were receding. I saw Maureen a couple of times and my lips look soft, natural, and in perfect proportion to my face. We’ve all seen bad filler jobs. Go to the best – see Maureen at Dr Sullivan’s office

Dr. Sullivan is happy to announce he has resumed elective surgeries!

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

Due to cases being moved back from the spring and the pent up demand for our services we are expecting to be FULLY booked out for the summer soon, limited spots are available. If you have any interest in summer surgery or services, please call us or contact us immediately so we can help you coordinate this before those spots become unavailable. Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We are here for any surgical or cosmetic questions you may have. Get in touch with us to see if there is any way we can help you.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.

We welcome you. Please come - we are open & here for you. If you would like to have a VIRTUAL CONSULTATION or an IN PERSON CONSULTATION or have any questions at all, please give us a call at 401-214-5121 or contact us via the website to set up your virtual consultation today!
