BOTOX® Injections and DYSPORT® Injections in Boston, MA
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you’re not.
BOTOX® and Dysport are popular because they are FDA approved non-surgical methods of reducing or eliminating unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face. BOTOX® is distributed by Allergan and Dysport is distributed by Medicis. These injections diminish fine lines caused by repeated muscle movement from expression, such as frown and forehead creases and the lines around the eyes better known as crow’s feet. The injection works by blocking the nerve impulses, relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles.
The series of injections usually takes about ten minutes. No anesthesia is needed and this non-surgical procedure requires virtually no recovery time. Injection results are visible within days and typically skin will maintain a smooth, refreshed appearance for about two to four months, depending on the site of the injections and extent of lines.
