Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. As we grow older, our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Eventually, wrinkles, lines and creases form on our skin replacing your youthful look with an older one. Certain facial expressions can cause wrinkles; people who repeatedly smile, frown, or squint will develop fine lines and wrinkles earlier than those who do not perform these facial expressions so often.
The treatment for Botox or Dysport takes only a few moments and does not require anesthesia. Patients may experience minor discomfort as a tiny, fine needle is used to inject the substance into specific muscles and muscle groups. The ideal results will appear anywhere between three and seven days after the initial treatment. An advantage to these treatments is the longevity of the results. The effects from a Botox or Dysport procedure typically last between three and four months, which is longer than other anti-wrinkle treatments.
So, what is the difference between Botox and Dysport? Both products are neurotoxins that work the same way to controllably weaken muscles from squeezing and forming wrinkles. Two different companies have produced very similar products to deliver the same wonderful results.
