BOTOX® is used to relax muscles, smooth the overlying skin and soften or diminish the appearance of wrinkles that have formed from years of facial expressions. Botox can also prevent wrinkles and keep skin looking smooth. Dysport is a similar medication used for the same reasons Botox is used. You can ask your provider which product is best for you.
Botox is not a “one size fits all” procedure and results vary by skill, injection placement, and experience. The number of units needed is based on the treatment area, the strength of your facial musculature, and the desired improvement. The amount of Botox used and where it is injected can make all the difference in the desired results.
The patient will be able to see the results of the Botox injections any time from 2 days post injections to 2 weeks. Treatment areas continue to improve up to a month and results can last up to 4 months. Patients must return every three to four months or so to prevent the return of their wrinkles.
