Botox (onabotulinum toxin A) is an inexpensive, yet powerful cosmetic treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help reduce:
· crow's feet,
· frown line wrinkles, and
· excessive underarm sweating.
In 2009, the FDA also approved Dysport treat wrinkles between the brows. (Dysport has a similar active ingredient to Botox, offering doctors and patients a way to keep cost and quality competitive.)
For both muscle-relaxing injectables, researchers continue to find new uses. If you accept the risks and value the rewards of clinically-studied, unapproved treatments, low doses of these medicines can help reverse forehead creases and tighten turkey neck as well.
Dr. Raval regularly shares such findings for Botox and Dysport uses, aging signs, and treatment options. Here are a few relevant posts:
