Botox / Dysport
Do you suffer from fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes, your forehead, or between your eyebrows? These are probably caused by repeated muscle movement. Botox or Dysport injections can help soften and smooth these wrinkles over time.
How Does It Work?
Botox and Dysport are both brand-names of botulinum toxin A and are used for cosmetic wrinkle smoothing. Only a miniscule amount of Botulinum toxin A is needed to relax the muscle. When the muscle is relaxed, the skin over the top is not constantly folding together and the fine lines/wrinkles start to soften. Cosmetic use of Botox starts working in about two weeks with wrinkle reduction effects lasting an average of three months. Dysport will start softening expression lines in approximately two days and has an average lasting effect of 4 months.
What are the Benefits?
The most common expression lines that are treated include frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and lines around the mouth. These areas can dramatically improve in appearance over the 3-5 months that the medication is active in the muscle being treated. The area treated will have a softer, smoother appearance with diminished expression lines.
Am I a Good Candidate?
