Botox® and Dysport®

Anna Bar, M.D.

Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® are prescription medications that can be very effective in minimizing the appearance of isolated wrinkles such as those on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and adjacent to the eyes (crow's feet). The medicine is administered through injection as a simple, nonsurgical way to minimize wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract. Although the effect is temporary, it can last three to six months and has the added benefit of reducing the development of future wrinkles by not allowing the repeating movement that contributes to wrinkles over time. Most people resume normal activity and/or can go back to work on the same day.
