What are Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport are two popular brands of anti-aging treatments used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These treatments are typically used on the face, particularly on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.
Botox and Dysport work by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, which helps to relax the muscles and smooth out wrinkles. These treatments are quick and relatively painless, with minimal downtime.
Botox has been used for cosmetic purposes since 2002, and the FDA approved Dysport in 2009. Both products are FDA-approved and have a high safety profile when administered by a qualified healthcare professional. It is one of the most used products in the aesthetics world.
