BOTOX® injections are a great way to eliminate wrinkles and improve the appearance of both moderate and severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines around eyes.
These lines can make you look tired, angry and older. In recent tests, BOTOX® has also been effective in reducing headaches in migraine patients.
Before and After
Interest in these anti-aging treatments continues to rise, as more men and women seek non-surgical methods of improving their appearance without any incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
Before undergoing Botox or Dysport injections, it’s important to understand how these products relax wrinkles, when you’ll see results, and how long effects will last.
Here’s everything you need to know about the wrinkle-busting abilities of Botox and Dysport, and why patients rely on them to maintain a refreshed look.
What Are Botox and Dysport?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are brand names for botulinum toxin type A and are commonly referred to as neuromodulators.
They have multiple cosmetic and medical uses and are widely recognized for their safety, efficacy, and ease of use.
How Do These Cosmetic Injections Work?
These purified proteins are injected into overactive muscles where they block the release of chemical messengers responsible for contraction.
As a result, Botox and Dysport are able to temporarily inhibit facial expressions, that over time, can crease the skin and cause wrinkles to develop.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport are most often used on moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
They can also alleviate migraines, by preventing pain signals from reaching nerve endings, and excessive sweating, by limiting stimulation of glands in the underarms, soles of feet, and palms of hands.
How Quickly Do These Products Work?
Within three-to-five days of a Botox or Dysport procedure, patients will begin to notice a relaxation of facial muscles and smoothing of lines and wrinkles from the treatment area. The full effects can be seen within one-to-two weeks and reveal a well-rested and natural facial appearance.
How Long Do Botox and Dysport Results Last?
Botox and Dysport are gradually metabolized by the body over a period of several months, and patients can experience wrinkle-free skin for up to four-to-six months.
At this time, they can seek touch-up injections to preserve treatment benefits.
