Everybody seeks to have a fresh, young-looking face that is without wrinkles. However, with age, the facial skin becomes dull and lines start to appear around the eyes, the forehead, and on the cheeks making the person look older.
Wrinkles are mainly the result of decreasing elasticity in the skin as we age. Decreasing collagen production and vascularization of the tissues causes this.
Botox and Dysport are two cosmetic injectables that can reverse the effects of aging. Botox has been around for a three decades, while Dysport is relatively new. Both contain botulinum toxin Type A, which, when injected in very small amounts, will relax the underlying muscle that contracts and causes wrinkles on the skin above.
The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and you can return to work immediately after your appointment. Results are immediate and continue to improve over the next few days. The results of Dysport last up to five months, but at that point another appointment is necessary to continue the effects of the injections.
