The eternal dream of man to remain young and beautiful forever has always been a motivating factor towards innovation and experimentation. This dream has been responsible for the increasing popularity of cosmetic surgery, leading to the sudden influx in the use of Botox®. Although the results are temporary, Botox® treatments have gained popularity all over the U.S. and throughout the world because of the simplicity of the procedure and fast immediate results.
Frown lines are caused by overactive muscles in the face. Botox® Cosmetic is intramuscular, blocking the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. Botox® is used extensively for getting rid of expression lines in foreheads, furrows between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. It produces real, noticeable results with no surgery and no recovery time.
The full effects of Botox® injections can be seen within 5 to 7 days. The results last from three to six months after which most patients gradually return to their former state.
Like Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A, and it is also an effective for frown lines and brow furrows.
Botox® takes three to five days to work, while Dysport® seems to work within one to two days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving Dysport® treatment. This rapid response could be the deciding factor for a woman or man looking to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting.
What’s more, the Botox® alternative may last longer than its predecessor. Some studies have shown that Dysport® injections may keep wrinkles at bay for six months to one year, as opposed to the approximate three month timeframe associated with Botox®.
