Botox and Dysport are injectable medications used to soften fine lines and wrinkles. The medication works by relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles related to repetitive facial expressions. It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect of the treatment. The ideal time to start having regular treatments is when you see fine lines when your face is at rest. For some people, this might be as early as 20; others may not need to start until they are 35 or older. A typical treatment is 20-60 units and will last anywhere from 3-6 months. Expect minimal downtime – usually less than an hour, with possible bruising at the injection sites for less than a week after treatment. This can easily be covered with makeup if necessary.
