I know that Botox and Dysport are good for treating forehead lines but are they good for treating anything else?
Botox and Dysport, which are a form of botulism toxin that paralyzes muscle tissue, are used for a number of other medical reasons besides just treating cosmetic reasons. They are also known for treating blepharospasm or twitching of certain muscles. They can sometimes be used to treat migraine headaches if a trigger point which may relate to muscle spasm can be found and they are sometimes used to treat torticollis and other problems in the neck.
One of the excellent side effects of Botox and Dysport beside treating the forehead lines themselves is that they also can relax the muscles and let the brows rise up, giving someone a better brow position and the benefits of a brow lift without actually having surgery in certain circumstances.
