Botox© and Dysport® Injections
Botox© is a neuromuscular blocker which temporarily inhibits the signal between the nerve fiber and the muscle fiber. By doing so it serves to relax the muscles where it is placed. By placing Botox in the muscles of face it helps to decrease the wrinkles found in the overlying skin. Botox can be used to decrease the wrinkles caused by the muscle in the forehead and around the eyes.
It can also be used in the neck to help decrease neck bands caused by the superficial muscles of the neck. When used appropriately in certain areas of the face, Botox also results in a more relaxed facial appearance. Its use on the muscles of the forehead helps to soften facial expressions often preventing the tense or angry look to the face. Botox has been shown to be safe and has been therapeutically used for over twenty years. Newer uses of Botox have been shown to be effective in helping with the grinding of teeth or bruxism. It is also effective with excessively sweaty palms and armpits in patients with hyperhidrosis when placed in the palms and the underarm, respectively.
What to Expect
Botox is placed using a very small needle. To minimize the chances of bruising and to provide maximum comfort, an icepack is placed over the skin before the procedure. Patients can return to work immediately but should refrain from exercising that day.
