What Is Botox®?
Botox® is the most well-known injectable beauty treatment, considered a trailblazer in the beauty industry. The injections contain a safe and approved neurotoxin that relaxes your facial muscles to smooth out wrinkles. As you age, the constant actions of smiling, frowning, talking, and even smoking lead to wrinkles. Botox® is commonly used to target frown lines between the eyes, as well as furrows that appear on the forehead. Because it is so effective, many people also target smile lines around the chin and lips and crows’ feet around the eyes.
How Long Does It Take for Wrinkles to Disappear?
It can take up to a week for wrinkles to disappear following your treatment. However, results will slowly improve each day until you see the desired smoothness.
How Long Does Botox® Last?
Botox® injections last at least three to four months, with some patients seeing it wear off sooner and others enjoying the effects for up to six months. The first treatment tends to last for a shorter period, with alternate treatments lasting longer.
What Is Dysport®?
Dysport® is similar to Botox®, offering long-lasting results to address common signs of aging. However, Dysport® does not have the same paralyzing effect as Botox®, so it does not affect how the rest of your face moves. Additionally, Dysport® is only recommended to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
