BOTOX® / Dysport®
BOTOX® is one of the most recent and most exciting advances for treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. BOTOX® is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. This relaxation lasts for a number of months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition. BOTOX® does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. This is done in a way which will not alter your natural expression and features. It takes just a few minutes and normally lasts about 3-4 months.

BOTOX® Case Studies

Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles forms frown lines between the eyebrows.
Wrinkles are not only age related. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Dysport® is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age.
The muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, and can cause wrinkles. Dysport® blocks the nerve signal that causes these facial muscles to contract. This ultimately results in a localized reduction of muscle activity in the treated area and temporarily stops the contraction of these muscles.
Dysport® is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to your first use.
