What Are BOTOX and Dysport Used For?
BOTOX and Dysport are used to reduce the look of wrinkles and fight the signs of aging. The injections temporarily reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles including frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, wrinkles around the eyes, nasolabial folds, and thick bands in the neck. BOTOX is not only for women! Both men and women have great results with injection therapy, looking younger with reduced wrinkles and smoother skin.
BOTOX is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX® Cosmetic. In regard to how it works, the toxin blocks the nerve impulses, which temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that BOTOX® Cosmetic can be effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in a patient’s neck and eyes.
What Are the Benefits of BOTOX?
In addition to helping create a radiant, more youthful appearance, BOTOX is a commonly used product backed by years of research to support its effectiveness and safety. It can be used for both men and women and may offer additional benefits in addition to smoothing the look of wrinkles and fine lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a well-tolerated product that is administered in a non-invasive procedure, with few side effects or risk factors. There are a large variety of potential benefits, but it is important for each patient to consider their desired outcome and expectations. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can provide a level of youth and a feeling of confidence that may have been lacking for years. Open up an entirely new world of possibilities with this non-invasive procedure.
*As with any procedure and/or treatment, the results may vary.
Unlike the BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, which temporarily paralyzes tiny muscles in the face, releasing tension that causes lines, fillers replace lost volume. If you would like to restore contours or reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and creases, cosmetic fillers may be right for you.
