Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxins that help reduce wrinkles within days of the injection. They both work by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, allowing the muscle to relax and thus reducing and/or eliminating the wrinkles. The medication starts working within 2-5 days of injection and results usually last 3 months. Often times referred to as a lunchtime appointment, it usually only takes 15-30 minutes with the ability to return back to work immediately after!
