Botox, Bocouture or Dysport?
Although muscle relaxant injections were originally used for medical purposes, perhaps the most commonly known use today is in facial aesthetic treatment.
Dynamic lines caused by the action of the muscles of facial expression can artificially age a person and have a significant impact on self-esteem. Injections relax the action of the underlying muscles and minimize the resulting lines.
Traditionally, lines appearing on the forehead; between the eyes (glabellar region); and around the eyes (crow’s feet), have been the most common areas treated, however the number of new uses for this remarkable substance has expanded substantially and includes other areas of direct importance to Dentists, such as the treatment of TMJ disorders, tooth grinding, “gummy smiles” and much more.
Owing to superior knowledge of facial anatomy; daily practical experience dealing with the functional and aesthetic aspects of muscles of the face; and an ability to provide accurate and comfortable injections; Dentists are the most qualified people to be providing facial muscle relaxant injections.
