BOTOX, DYSPORT &
Botox (Botulinum toxin) injections relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow's feet and frown lines.
Botox® Cosmetic and other neurotoxins including Dysport are popular treatments for a number of different conditions including the reduction of facial wrinkles, droopy brows, and excessive sweating.
Botox works well on facial lines and wrinkles, known as “dynamic rhytids” on the upper portion of the face and forehead, particular those caused by muscles that are repeatedly over-contracted during facial expressions such as frowning or squinting.
Botox injections have been very effective in reducing the appearance of frown lines, forehead furrows, “crow’s feet,” lines and wrinkles of the lower face, and even prominent vertical bands in the neck.
Botox temporarily relaxes the facial muscles in the treated area smoothing the skin’s surface and “removing” the wrinkling effect. The results can last for three to six months. Non-Botox neurotoxins such as Dysport are sometimes better for those wanting a more “gentle” correction.
Who is a good candidate for Botox and other Botox-Type products?
Botox® and other neuromodulators are good for most patients, unless you have a history of an adverse reaction to these types of treatments. The injections help with lines across your forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Dr. Shawn also uses Botox® for hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that describes excessive sweating.
