These injections can help to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face, giving the skin a more youthful appearance. Botox/Dysport can be used to target specific muscle groups in the face, such as the forehead, around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), and between the eyebrows (“11’s”).

In addition to its cosmetic uses, Botox/Dysport injections can also be used to treat a number of medical conditions.

The injection site will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution, and a small needle will be used to inject the Botox/Dysport into the target muscle group. The entire procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes, and there is typically no downtime afterward. You may experience some mild side effects such as bruising or redness at the injection site, but these should resolve within a few days.  In rare cases, more serious side effects have been reported, such as difficulty swallowing or breathing, muscle weakness, and drooping eyelids.
