Botox® and Dysport® are injections performed for cosmetic purposes to decrease wrinkles. They work by decreasing muscle movements. Each can be used to temporarily soften existing wrinkles or to prevent wrinkles from forming. Most of the time, injections are used in the upper face to soften forehead lines and lines around the eye (crow’s feet). Injections can also be used in other locations as off-label use. If you have deep wrinkles, several sessions may be required to fully soften your lines. Typically, injections will last three to four months before the effect wears off.
Board-certified dermatologists have extensive training in facial anatomy and injection techniques. When looking for someone to perform your cosmetic injections, a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon is the best choice to help you achieve your goals.
