BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport are cosmetic injectables that considerably minimize the appearance of creases in between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. More recently they also have been utilized to lower excessive sweating in the underarms and palms, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. These purified proteins work by preventing the muscle movement that results in wrinkles.

By making small injections of BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport into these muscles, their motion is reduced, together with the associated lines they produce in the skin. BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport are short-term, with outcomes lasting for approximately 3-4 months in most facial locations, and 2-3 months around the mouth area.
