Many lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by repetitive muscle use from certain facial expressions such as frowning or squinting. Some of these facial expressions are intentional, but many are subconscious (without you even being aware of the facial movement). Botox and Dysport are both medications that when injected underneath the skin, temporarily prevent the muscle from moving. This helps smooth lines and wrinkles in the area of injection within 10-14 days of injection. Over time, with consistent treatment, the lines and wrinkles begin to fade and fill in.
This is not just for older individuals, but for young adults too. In fact, smaller amounts earlier may lead to a better overall results and prevent the damage to the skin before it ever occurs.
In addition to reducing lines between the eyebrows (11’s), forehead lines, crows feet, Botox and Dysport can also be used to treat excessive sweating of the underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. These medications are also injected into the muscles of the jaw to help alleviate the pain and discomfort of TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) issues and in many patients, help with headaches. Natural asymmetries can also be corrected with the use of this medication as well.
After treatment, you will still look like YOU, but a more rested, rejuvenated you. This treatment is the best way to let your body prevent or heal wrinkles deep within the skin. This injection simply softens lines and eases tension in the treatment areas.
