Botox and Dysport
Answered on this page:
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.
How Does BOTOX Work?
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.
As with any procedure and/or treatment, the results may vary.

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.

How Long Does BOTOX Last?
The results from BOTOX and Dysport will typically last around 3 months. As muscle action returns, the lines and wrinkles can begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking from the treatments.
How Long Is BOTOX Recovery?
Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-invasive procedure, you can return to normal activities immediately. The treatment takes about 10-20 minutes in the office. Results of the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections will be noticeable within 7-10 days of the procedure, and the final results will become visible in up to a month.
