Nothing does what a neurotoxin can!…What is a neurotoxin? Botox and Dysport are among two of the most common neurotoxins around. They are injected into muscles to decrease the contraction of the muscle which is what causes unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. These agents are most commonly injected into the “11′s” (the furrows between the brows), the crow’s feet (the lines around the eyes), and the forehead, although neurotoxins can be used in other specific areas as well.
What is a typical Botox or Dysport appointment like? First, your injector will thoroughly discuss your facial concerns with you. You will know how many units are recommended and what your cost will be before any injection is done. The area that is being treated will be cleaned before the injection. The injection process is very quick and most patients experience little to no pain at all.
