Botox® and Dysport® treatments are a way of reducing the appearance of wrinkles by diminishing facial expression lines, such as crow's-feet and in particular the vertical line between the eyebrows that makes a person look worried. 

The positive feedback from clients having had this treatment is overwhelming and now Botox® and Dysport® are becoming household names. 

What Causes Wrinkles?
The vertical frown line is caused by the repetitive creasing of the skin when the Corrugator Supercilious muscle running along the eyebrow contracts during the facial express of a squint or frown. This wrinkling in the glabellar area is associated with anger, anxiety and sadness, all negative emotions.

How Does Botox® or Dysport Work?
It weakens or paralyses the muscle and hence reduce the crease. A tiny injection of a paralysing agent, Botox® or Dysport, is placed in the belly of the muscle and within the following week and for the next 3-4 months, the ability to crease the skin at the frown line is diminished. 

How Often Should Treatment Take Place?
After four or more treatments the length of time between treatments increases as each session appears to be cumulative. It may be that this treatment allows you to lose or unlearn the urge to frown and recently it has been suggested that after several treatments there may be some permanent effect.
