Botox® Cosmetic & Dysport®
Facial wrinkles are one of the hallmark features of facial aging. A very popular solution to decreasing the appearance of wrinkles is the injection of what’s called a neuromodulator branded as either BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are two brand names of a substance that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In very small and dilute amounts, this toxin can be injected directly into certain muscles. This causes controlled weakening in those muscles, which in turn smooths the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the skin. These injections have been used safely for many years, and are an extremely popular choice for both women and men who desire fewer wrinkles and want to retain a more youthful, and softer look even into their later years.
