Cosmetic injections, like Botox and Dysport go directly into the muscle and will reduce wrinkles. This can take years off of your appearance. Botox and Dysport are brands of botulinum toxin A, which is a neurotoxin. They are prescription drugs that are safe to use cosmetically and are approved for cosmetic and medical uses by Health Canada and the FDA. Your medical aesthetician at Canada MedLaser can help advise you in which injection will work best for you based on your area of concern and the severity of the wrinkle.
Botox and Dysport work by being injected in to the muscle that creates the wrinkle and causes temporary paralysis of the muscle. When the muscle is paralyzed, it cannot contract and the wrinkle relaxes. Most people will not be able to tell you have had any procedure done and will be wondering how you look so refreshed and well rested! These results will last around 3-6 months, depending on the injection and how long it takes an individual’s body to break down the toxin. Time between treatments can increase with the more injections you receive, as the muscle “learns” how to behave.
