Botox and Dysport injections for facial wrinkles is one of the most popular, satisfying and effective non-surgical procedure. It works by weakening those muscles under the skin which cause dynamic wrinkles to form. Injection areas; horizontal lines on the forehead, lines between the two eyebrows, lines around the eyes (the crow’s feet), lines around the mouth and neck lines. After Botox injection, the effect is seen in 4-5 days. After 4-6 months, the treatment effect starts to decrease and the injection should be repeated. It is typically painless, causes no, or minimal, redness or swelling, and has immediate recovery. Botox-Dysport also has utility in the treatment of migraine headaches, blepharospasm. Blepharospasm occurs as a result of involuntary contraction of the muscle that closes the eyelid, and the patient can’t open his eyes. Blepharospasm, which is a very uncomfortable condition, can sometimes be so severe that it disrupts people's vision and daily activities.
Facial fillers are injectable materials, used to add volume to areas of the face, such as the lips, cheeks, temples, and under eyes, or to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles. They are different than Botox in that they do not reduce wrinkles by weakening the movement of facial muscles. They do so by filling in lines or depressions (like the dark circles under the lower lids). Sometimes they are used together with Botox as the combination may work better than each individual treatment.
