Botox and Dysport are used to improve wrinkles and to rejuvenate the face. They are medicines that work at the muscle level. Since the facial muscles pull on the skin, relaxing these muscles leads to lessening and improvement of the wrinkles. For example, the muscle around the eye is called the orbicularis oculi. When it contracts, we notice wrinkles called “the crow’s feet.” By injecting into this muscle, we can get improvement in these wrinkles!
