What it is
One of the most talked-about cosmetic procedures on the market, Botox/Dysport is a non-surgical procedure that smoothes frown lines and keeps them relaxed for up to 3-6 months. Results are visible within days.
How it works
Through a series of tiny injections, Botox/Dysport is placed into the problem areas and then relaxes the overactive muscles that have created frown lines and wrinkles. As those overactive muscles become weak through inactivity, the lines and wrinkles are diminished.
Concerns & Considerations
Keep in mind that less is best! Too many people have made the mistake of getting too much Botox/Dysport at the outset. Remember that you can always add touch-ups – but you can’t take it away once you’ve put it in there. It’s always better to go back in and add to it than to get too much.
With Botox, there is some possibility of bruising so, as with all treatments, you’ll want to do it at least two weeks before any special occasions.
