As we age, repetitive facial movements like frowning, squinting, or raising the eyebrows result in fine lines and wrinkles. In our thirties and forties, we also see a slow in collagen production, which can result in volume loss and lack of elasticity. Preventative measures are available to lessen the effects of aging and avoid more invasive procedures in the future.
Botox/Dysport relax facial muscles and restrict exaggerated movements to correct lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive movements like squinting, glaring, and wrinkling the forehead.

Neurotoxins prevent the firing of acetylcholine, disrupting nerve signals that tell muscles to contract. When we smile, tense our jaws, and make other facial expressions, lines and wrinkles form and become more pronounced over time. Neurotoxins relax the facial muscles to create a smoother and softer appearance and prevent new fine lines from forming.
Botox/Dysport are injected into the facial muscles to prevent and soften signs of aging. Your expert Skin & Tonic injector will assess your areas of concern and determine the right treatment plan for you. We carry Botox® and Xeomin® brands, among other products and services, to combat fine lines and wrinkles.
Your injector will discuss your candidacy at the time of your appointment. However, most people and skin types are good candidates for Botox/Dysport injections. Botox/Dysport can prevent lines and wrinkles before they form and soften the look of lines and wrinkles for those with more advanced signs of aging.
Depending on the brand of neurotoxin, results will be seen anywhere from a few days up to two weeks. Neurotoxins can last anywhere from three to six months. When you notice facial movements returning in the treatment areas, you can receive a second treatment to maintain results.
No, Botox/Dysport injections are a non-invasive way to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is recommended not to lie flat for four hours after treatment and avoid massaging the treatment area. The treatment area may be slightly tender, and some light bruising can form where the neurotoxin was injected. Bruising usually resolves within a few days.
