The Botox and Dysport Procedure

What is the best way to decrease wrinkles in my forehead, between my brows or around my eyes?

The onset of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines are a common problem for men and women as they age. These lines can make one appear tired and even angry. At Skin Secrets, one of the best ways to treat these problem areas, and or prevent the wrinkles from digging into the skin in the first place is with Botox or Dysport

Botox Frown Lines

The Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures

BOTOX® and or Dysport are the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country and one of our most requested services.  Both Botox and Dysport can reduce or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles for up to four to six months. The procedure is quick and easy to have done in a matter of minutes.  These tiny injections can produce a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet, softening the 11’s or frown lines between the brows, reducing or eliminating lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

Both Stimulate Muscles

Botox and Dysport are both neurotoxins. Neurotoxins are substances that inhibit neurons, which work to stimulate the contraction of a muscle. Neurotoxins are injected with a very tiny needle into certain muscles to temporarily freeze them and inhibit muscle contraction. These products are injected into facial muscles to improve frown lines, wrinkles and aging furrows that can develop from years of squinting, frowning, and smiling. They can also be used to treat crow’s feet that develop around the eyes. Weakening certain muscles can allow for a more gentle and relaxed look. Both Dysport and Botox work in a similar fashion. Studies have shown Dysport can act a little bit quicker and may spread more rapidly which can be a benefit for the crow’s feet and forehead lines and wrinkles.

How are wrinkles and facial lines formed?

How are wrinkles and facial lines formed? There are many contributing factors that cause wrinkles to set in. Wrinkles are not only caused by cellular aging, but the loss of volume and collagen starting in our late 20’s is also a major contributing factor. Genetics also can play a major role, as well as melanin content or lack thereof and sun damage. When you frown, smile, raise your brows or squint, the muscles on your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes contract, causing the skin to wrinkle and crease leading to crow’s feet, and glabellar creases. Bunny lines on the nose and dimples of the chin, also will increase with time and can be treated with Botox or Dysport.

They Promote A Younger Appearance

BOTOX and Dysport are an excellent way to promote a younger appearance and can be a preventative treatment as well, by inhibiting the formation of wrinkles in the first place.  Both BOTOX and Dysport target the muscle below the skin’s surface, to inhibit the muscle contraction that is causing the frown lines and wrinkles to dig in gradually over time. The result is a diminished appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
