Are you looking for a quick and easy way to improve harsh-appearing frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles? BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are very safe and effective injections for smoothing and softening these areas.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are most commonly used to treat furrows or “frown lines” that appear between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead wrinkles, and the “crow’s feet” wrinkles extending out from the sides of the eyes. Less commonly, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are used as treatments to reduce areas of excessive sweating, such as within the armpit.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are similar injections that differ slightly. The active ingredient in both is botulinum toxin Type A, but the surrounding protein structure is different in each. Dysport® tends to have a somewhat faster onset than BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® have very similar results and side effects, and both of the treatments typically maintain their effectiveness from 3 to 5 months.
The treatment concept is to soften harsh appearing wrinkles by relaxing certain facial muscles, yet maintain your normal facial expressions. The treatments are administered with very small needles into the targeted areas. There is virtually no downtime and it is very rare that bruising results from treatment.
