BOTOX® Cosmetic / DYSPORT®
Botulina toxin (Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®), is most effective in treating the type of lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contraction during facial expression such as frowning or squinting. Common areas for injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Injections directly into the muscles in these areas reduce their activity. Usually within a few days after these injections, the expression lines in the treatment areas will appear noticeably softer.
The improvement from all brands of Botulina toxin lasts from a minimum of 3 months and possibly more. The average is 4 months.
