Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines. When you start to experience the signs of aging, Botox® is available to diminish unwanted wrinkles and creases in your face.
Botox® blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. Botox® essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results from Botox® are visible within two to four days with results that can last anywhere from four to six months.
Botox® cosmetic treatments can be used to improve:
- Worry lines in your forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
Generally, anyone in good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox® treatments.
Most patients require retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax. The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. Botox® treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance.
Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the forehead muscles forms lines between the eyebrows. Dysport is a prescription injection that temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adult patients less than 65 years of age. With Dysport, it's just the frown lines that are minimized, not your expressions. Dysport has been shown to deliver improvement in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments.
With just 1 injection into each of the 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, which reduces muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows.
The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. Dysport treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance. There is minimal downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
