What are BOTOX® and DYSPORT® and are they Safe?

BOTOX® Onabotulinum toxin, and DYSPORT® Abobotulinum toxin are a naturally occurring purified proteins that block the muscles from contracting. They only affect the area where they are placed. Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections can reduce the signs of aging by reducing the muscle activity and wrinkles of the eyebrow and forehead. The reduction of frown lines is especially effective. BOTOX® has been used safely for over 20 years and has been FDA approved for facial wrinkles since 2002.

Why Use BOTOX® or DYSPORT®?

Dynamic facial wrinkles are caused by contractions of the muscles of the face every time you express emotions. The more expressive you are, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. These lines may be misinterpreted as anger, anxiety, fatigue and, of course, aging. Fillers and surgical procedures such as browlift and eyelid lift can tighten the skin and muscles around these lines, but do not address the underlying muscle pull, which eventually deepens the facial wrinkles. So for dynamic facial lines from overactive muscles of the upper face, BOTOX® or DYSPORT® is usually the best treatment.

How are BOTOX® and DYSPORT® Given?

The treatment takes 10 minutes and we use the tiniest needles available therefore Botox® and Dysport® treatments typically have minimal discomfort. Results are noticeable within 72 hours and may last 3-4 months. You may return to normal activities immediately.

Patients may elect to repeat BOTOX® or DYSPORT® treatments when it fully wears off. However, if the face is re-treated as soon as the muscles start to move, the facial muscles never regain their “memory”. After a number of re-treatments the interval between may become longer.
