By now, nearly everyone is familiar with Botox, but most people do not know exactly what it is or how it works. Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are both purified derivatives of the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. With skillfully placed small doses, these proteins will block the signals between nerve endings and muscle fibers in a targeted area of the face. The result is a reduction of some wrinkles that are caused by repetitive motion, primarily on the forehead and between the brows.
Dysport treatments have gained an incredible amount of popularity over the years, in large part due to the convenience of the injections and the affordable cost. In addition, all injectable treatments are minimally invasive, which means they require little to no recovery time. Once injected, the solution continues to be effective for several months at a time.
