BOTOX Injections are administered in aesthetic medicine clinics through small-dose injections that relax facial muscles that cause expression lines. Derived from botulinum toxin type A, it is a purified inactive protein that temporarily blocks nerve impulses when injected into specific muscles, and limits muscle contractions to reduce the appearance of expression lines. This muscle-relaxant effect is progressive and results in a visible improvement 5 to 10 days following injections; However, the more you use it the more each targeted muscle loses its ability to contract, extending the time frame between subsequent visits.
The secret to aesthetically pleasing results lies in just the right amount of it injected into the right treatment areas. Since one of the most common concerns among patients is the expressionless “frozen look”, choosing an experienced specialist who follows an individual approach to natural-looking results is key to treatment success.

Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin injections. Dysport reduces the appearance of lines that primarily affect the glabella, the area in between your eyebrows. These lines extend upward, or vertically, toward the forehead. They are especially noticeable when a person frowns. Dysport and Botox treatments are extremely convenient. No downtime, and not invasive and can go back to regular routine.
While naturally occurring, with age glabella lines can become more prominent during times of relaxation too. This is because our skin loses collagen, the protein fibers responsible for elasticity.
While Dysport can help treat glabella wrinkles, it’s only meant for people who have either moderate or severe cases. This procedure isn’t recommended for mild glabella lines. Your dermatologist can help you tell the difference between mild and moderate wrinkles of this type.
If you’re considered a candidate for Dysport, the entire procedure is done at your doctor’s office. No hospitalization is required, and you can leave immediately after the procedure is done.
Dysport injections take just a few minutes to complete. You should start seeing effects from the injections within a couple of days. Dysport can start taking effect after a couple of days. Results last between three and four months.
Every time you contract your muscles, they squeeze together to create a crease. Over time, that crease forms a wrinkle. BOTOX Cosmetic® is a purified protein that is injected into the muscle and interrupts the signal that causes the muscle to contract. This relaxes the area and prevents the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles.
The procedure lasts only a few minutes. No anesthesia is needed since injections are made with a small-gauge needle that minimizes any discomfort.
the effect lasts for 3 to 6 months, depending on individual, the areas treated, and dose.
Common side effects may include local discomfort, redness, swelling and possible bruising at the injection site, as well as tightness or a slight headache. These are normal, temporary and will subside on their own.
Those who are pregnant, nursing or have a neurological disease should not be treated.
