The Science: Best Botox Injector in Stonington CT
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are used to treat deeper facial expression lines and wrinkles. They can reduce the appearance of worry and frown lines on your forehead and between your eyes, and crow's feet around your eyes.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used for more than a decade to treat multiple medical illnesses in adults and children, including: neuromuscular diseases (cervical dystonia, tremors, facial spasms, laryngeal dystonia), eye diseases (strabismus, eyelid spasms, nystagmus), and excessive sweating. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are a diluted form of a man-made botulinum toxin.
Since 1988, BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been used to treat wrinkles. The product was the focus of a published study in medical literature in 1992. Since then, a large number of studies on BOTOX® Cosmetic have been done that document impressive results in reducing wrinkles -- unrivaled by the surgical alternative. The results also document its ease of application, high level of patient satisfaction, and strong safety profile.
In 2004 alone, physicians in the U.S. performed approximately 3,000,000 BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments to reduce wrinkles, making it the most common cosmetic procedure. BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved to reduce certain muscle spasm disorders and BOTOX® Cosmetic was FDA approved to reduce frown lines in 2002.

Dysport or Botox for Creases, Frowns, and Squints
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injections are used to reduce the appearance of lines on the face that are caused by repeated, deep muscular contractions. Wrinkles on the face that are primarily caused by facial movements and muscular contractions (rather than by sun damage or age), include frown lines (forehead, brow line, and in between the eyes) and crow's feet (on the side of either eye).
If these lines are mild, they can be treated by other methods such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing; however, they tend to recur as your facial movements are repeated. Therefore, a better treatment option for these areas is BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® . BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® will not eliminate your ability to show facial expressions or to have normal skin sensations. Only isolated muscles are "relaxed" so they do not create lines. The "relaxed" muscle's strength and size is re-grown as the BOTOX® Cosmetic wears off.
Quick and Easy Treatment
The treatment involves injecting a minute amount of the solution into the muscles that cause the frown and squint lines. The solution temporarily weakens the muscles, and by doing so, makes the lines caused by these muscles less apparent. One or more sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
The effect typically lasts for three to six months; therefore, injections are generally needed two to three times per year -- in order to maintain the desired cosmetic result. Some studies have shown that the duration of results from BOTOX® Cosmetic may increase with the number of injection sessions.
One feature of this procedure is it is completely no downtime; you can return to your daily activities immediately following the procedure. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® make the entire face look more relaxed and less tense as the products prevent clenching and overuse of the muscles in between the eyes. The forehead is smoother. Drooping upper eyelids raise up a bit so the upper third of the face looks more “open” and youthful. Patients comment that their friends and colleagues say they look less angry, more rested, less stressed out.
