Botulinum Toxin (Botox Cosmetic, Dysport)
One non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation is the injection of Botulinum toxin (Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®). These medications paralyze the muscles of the face to help both improve and prevent lines and wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead furrows, crows feet around the eyes, drooping of the corners of the mouth, and lip lines.
A consultation for Botulinum toxin will involve a facial analysis with Dr. Duggal to determine if you are a good candidate and decide where to inject it. The injections are done with a tiny needle during the clinic visit.
Botulinum toxin takes between 4 and 7 days to take full effect, and the effects generally last around 4 months.
