What is BOTOX? We all know it happens. Genetics, environmental toxins and years of sun can cause lines and wrinkles start to develop. You can prevent these expression lines with BOTOX injections. BOTOX is a muscle relaxer produced from the strain of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX injections were approved by the FDA in 1989 after almost 30 years of therapeutic research. BOTOX Cosmetic is produced by the pharmaceutical company Allergan, Inc. and has shown to be very effective in reducing the appearance of severe lines and heavy wrinkles.
Why Impressions for BOTOX? How Does It Work? Because BOTOX is simply a relaxant that is placed directly into the muscle it starts acting instantly. All muscles are controlled by nerve endings that receive signals from the brain. BOTOX Cosmetic prohibits these nerve endings from delivering their signal to the muscle fibers. The muscles, therefore, don’t respond and the skin covering the muscle stays smooth.It may take several injections to achieve your desired effect. If your facial lines are deep-set, more BOTOX may be required. If your wrinkles cover a large area (your forehead, for example), there will probably be several injection sites.
What Can I Expect During My Treatment? Our Aesthetic Nurse is certified to provide BOTOX treatments. These treatments are administered through a very tiny needle. BOTOX anesthetizes the wrinkle-causing muscle relaxing your facial lines.This process lasts approximately ten minutes. You will be left with fewer lines and a couple of minor bumps or redness that lasts only a few minutes.
How Long Does BOTOX Cosmetic Last?
The paralyzing effects of BOTOX generally last a 3 to 5 months. You may notice the effects fading near the end of the third or fourth month. This is normal. We recommend several consistent treatments. If you follow this regimen, you can expect longer lasting results. Over the course of long term therapy, BOTOX Cosmetic boasts extended relief.

Botox received FDA approval for cosmetic use in the United States in 2002. Dysport received FDA approval in April 2009.
Both products are safe and effective in the treatment of wrinkles on the face
Dysport is a smaller molecule, so the units are different than Botox (i.e., 20 units of Botox equal 60 units of Dysport)
Dysport works faster (in only 1-3 days vs. 4-7 for Botox) and has FDA approval for a four month duration (vs. 3-4 months for Botox)
