Dysport and Botox are inhibitors that stop the daily muscle movements that create expression lines. Botulinum toxin is used to weaken muscles and minimize dynamic lines. Both Dysport and Botox are injected directly into the muscle, affecting only lines caused by muscle contractions. The most common locations of injection are on frown lines, crow’s-feet, and forehead lines. Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. Smoking, straw use, and pursing your lips contribute to the muscle breakdown. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic, and those frown lines remain. The forehead, crow’s-feet, upper lip, and lower jaw muscles respond very well to this type of treatment.
The first injection typically softens the wrinkle lines. By the second or third treatment, wrinkles are blended into the surface of the skin, resulting in a smoother, more natural appearance. They are NOT fillers that plump the lines – rather, they inhibit the muscle from responding to expression commands. Used properly and correctly, inhibitors reduce the aging effects while still allowing you to smile, resulting in a more natural appearance. Align Body & Wellness will customize the treatment to fit your needs and budget.
