Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxins which were developed to treat the signs of aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The procedure is essentially painless and a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Botox and Dysport have proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and are capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.
Reasons for Considering a Treatment:
- Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.
- Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
- A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
Botulinum toxin works by relaxing the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. Typically, a very small volume of product is injected into the area near the wrinkles. Botox and Dysport work by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles. The result, which is seen after 4-7 days, is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of a treatment will last approximately three to four months.
Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. It advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
