Botox/Dysport Isn’t It Time To Smooth Out Those Pesky Wrinkles? Year after year, botulinum toxin A injections continue to be the most commonly performed aesthetic procedure in the United States. The reason is simple! It is a powerful, effective, non-surgical way to reverse the appearance of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines, laugh lines, and more can be virtually reduced with precise injections of either Botox® or Dysport, the two most common forms of this powerful neuromodulator. If you are seeking a non-surgical alternative to a costly, risky face or brow lift, Botox® or Dysport® injections may be for you. You might be asking yourself how a simple injection of botulinum toxin A can smooth lines that have been there for years. Lines and wrinkles are caused by the repeated muscle contractions from everyday actions, like frowning and squinting. As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin, so the skin can no longer just bounce back after each repeated movement, leaving behind a fold or crease in the skin. Carefully-placed injections of Botox® or Dysport® temporarily reduce muscle activity, resulting in a visible smoothing of your facial lines and wrinkles and even preventing the formation of new wrinkles!
