Botox/Dysport Edmonton & Regina
Dysport and Botox are two of the most popular and effective options for treating wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Dysport and Botox are able to reduce the appearance of common aesthetic concerns like smile lines and crow’s feet. At Ethemba Health and Image Centres, we offer Botox and Dysport treatments in Edmonton and Regina.
WHAT IS DYSPORT/BOTOX?
Dysport Aesthetic temporarily reduces the movement of certain upper facial muscles to help improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (“glabellar lines”) and crow’s feet lines (“lateral canthal lines”) in adults under 65 years of age. Your untreated facial muscles will still work normally, allowing you to freely show natural facial expressions, like smiling.
ABOUT FROWN LINES & CROW’S FEET
Glabellar lines or “frown lines” are vertical wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows.
Crow’s feet are lines that appear around the outer corners of the eyes.
Frown lines and crow’s feet are created by repeated facial expressions and movements, like frowning and squinting, so they can start to appear at a younger age. But there are other factors that can cause or worsen the appearance of frown lines, including:
- Sun Exposure –UV light in the sun can damage collagen
- Aging can create a loosening of collagen fibres and decreased skin elasticity
- Smoking can reduce the amount of new collagen produced
- Repeated facial expressions
The good news is that treatments like Dysport Aesthetic can treat them both and help create a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
What to Expect from Your Dysport Treatment
Dysport Aesthetic is injected into the muscle around your frown lines and/or crow’s feet. Your doctor will determine how many injections are needed, the right dose, and where to inject for the desired effect. Treatment generally takes 5-15 minutes, but may vary from patient to patient.
Talk to Dr. Hatfield if you have any questions during your appointment and or consultation.

The results seen with Dysport Aesthetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months. Repeated Dysport treatments will soften facial lines, adding a more youthful appearance.
“I had been getting treatments for wrinkles and fine lines at another clinic then my friend was talking about her experience with Ethemba so I thought I would check it out. When I went to see the Dr. he was so kind and actually listened to what I wanted. The previous clinic I went to said that my expectations were unrealistic but Dr Hatfield said that he could do it. He got rid of my frown lines but left me with movement on my forehead so I do not look frozen. I have not and will not ever go to anyone else for my treatments. There is such a sense of calmness around Dr Hatfield and he has a natural talent with a needle. Thank you Dr Hatfield!”

The Benefits of Dysport and Botox
Dr. Hatfield uses, the most popular North American, non-surgical cosmetic treatments available today. Treatments for wrinkles relax the muscles that contributed to the lines in the first place, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
Botox and Dysport are most commonly used for the glabellar frown lines (the deep creases between the eyebrows that can make us look angry or tired); forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes).
He can also treat areas that are a common concern as we age such as upper lip wrinkles, mouth frown, and the appearance of irregular dimpled skin on the chin. He has achieved great success in treating “turkey neck” bands or “necklace lines” that appear on the neck with age.
