Treatment with BOTOX® or DYSPORT® is a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles caused by the actions of facial muscles, such as brow furrows and crow’s feet, oftentimes delaying the need for surgery. Other areas that may be injected include the nose, lip, chin, jaw and neck.
Treatments are individualized after an assessment of facial muscles and generally last three to four months; over time, less medication may be needed.
