Botox and Dysport are injectable neurotoxins used to treat wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing certain muscles in the face. When these muscles are paralyzed, they cannot contract and wrinkle the overlying skin. Botox is used only in certain muscle groups, such as the corrugators (responsible for the vertical lines between the brows), the frontalis (the horizontal lines on the forehead), and the orbicularis (response for the crows’ feet, or laugh lines around your eyes).
What to Expect
Botox and Dysport injections take minutes to perform and have little discomfort. There is no down time, and the effects are quick, becoming noticeable within three to five days of treatment. Treatment effect typically lasts three to four months, and varies with each patient.
