BOTOX® in Boston has been used to treat everything from wrinkles to migraines. Due to BOTOX’s well-established safety record, long-lasting results, and simple treatment sessions, this anti-wrinkle injection has become one of the most popular minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures in the world. And now, with the arrival of Dysport®, men and women have even more options when enhancing their appearance.
Like many people who are concerned about reversing the signs of aging, you may have many questions regarding which areas of the face are most responsive to BOTOX or Dysport. In my practice as a dermatologist, I have found that most people benefit from anti-wrinkle injections in the following areas:
- Between the eyebrows
Both BOTOX and Dysport are highly effective at treating “frown lines” between the eyebrows. This results in a softer, more approachable appearance.
- On the forehead
Horizontal forehead creases are also very responsive to BOTOX and Dysport. After treatment, the vertical mobility of the forehead is limited, thereby eliminating frequent creasing of the skin that causes wrinkles.
- Around the eyes
Many people choose anti-wrinkle injections to improve the look of “crow’s feet” around the eyes and to look more awake and refreshed.
- Along the upper lip
Small, vertical lines that develop around the mouth and lips can be easily treated. Patients who previously smoked cigarettes are often the most affected by vertical lip lines, and can greatly benefit from treatment.
- On the neck
The development of “neck bands” results from the muscle weakness that accompanies age. BOTOX or Dysport can relax these bands so that they no longer protrude outward.
