BOTOX and other neurotoxin injections are non-surgical solutions to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The injectable formula is made from botulinum toxin, sometimes dubbed a “miracle poison”, that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected into a muscle, it weakens or paralyzes the muscle around the area injected for a typical period of several months. The resultant weakening or paralyzing effect on the facial muscle temporarily reduces or eliminates previous skin creasing and new skin creasing is avoided. BOTOX may take several days to have its effect, and the effect typically lasts 3 – 4 months, in most individuals, before full muscle movement returns. At that point, the treatment may be repeated as desired.
Dysport is another form of botulinum toxin we can use to treat and smooth moderate to severe glabellar lines between the eyebrows. While it comes from the same “family” as BOTOX, Dysport uses abobotulinumtoxinA in its formula. Before the injection, application sites are assessed when the face is at rest and at maximum frown. 10 units of Dysport are then injected into five injection sites, each one centimeter above the eyebrows, for a total of 50 units. The injection itself contains a freeze-dried botulinum toxin type A, lactose, human albumin, and sodium chloride. Effects of Dysport injections are visible two to three days after initial treatment and are estimated to last four months.
