Botox is for both cosmetic and therapeutic treatments. Therapeutic treatment is indicated for migraine headaches, TMJ pain, spasticity and some abnormal movement such as dystonia, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, etc. Cosmetic uses is for reducing or removing wrinkles such as facial wrinkles, large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead, small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes, and a vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
Botox has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in a person's appearance.
The procedure is considered to be safe. It relaxes facial muscles and make wrinkle smooth. The effects of a Botox treatment can last approximately three to six months.
Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, the patients should avoid heavy physical activities, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours right after the injections. The patients are also advised to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area.

Are you troubles with worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, or crow's feet? Many people solve these problems with Botox Cosmetic & Dysport. These changes of age are called dynamic wrinkles because they are cause by contractions of the muscles of the face. Botox & Dysport relax these facial muscles to smooth the skin and reduce the wrinkles.
Used for nearly 20 years, Botox is a safe and effective way to reduce facial wrinkles. Very small injections are made in facial muscles to reduce lines between the brows, forehead, and crow’s feet. Through these injections a “chemical brow lift” is possible, delaying the need for surgery. Other areas that may be injected include the nose, lip area, the chin, the jaw area and neck. The treatments are individualized after an assessment of facial muscles. The amount of medication required is individually determined and the patient is charged only for the number of units required. The treatment generally lasts three to four months, but over time, less medication is needed, and the durations of effect can increase. Recently the FDA approved, Dysport as an additional injection for the treatment of wrinkles caused by muscle contraction. One advantage of Dysport is that the relaxation of the muscle occurs faster than with the Botox.
