Botox and Dysport
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® and Dysport® is a quick 10-minute treatment that reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines to help them look better.
Regular use of BOTOX / Dysport is the best ways to prevent wrinkles from becoming permanent lines on the face.
What age is the best to start BOTOX / Dysport? It varies between 20-30 years old. When a certain facial movement causes a wrinkle, then you know it is time to start treating that area.
Do topical products replace the need for BOTOX or Dysport? Absolutely not. While topical products are important for brightening the skin and reversing and preventing sun damage, no topical product will stop the facial movements which cause the wrinkles.
Are BOTOX / Dysport natural? Botulinum toxin is a medication that is made from bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX is OnabotulinumtoxinA. Dysport is AbobotulinumtoxinA.
