BOTOX:

Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA-approved aesthetic product that temporarily makes moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

 

  • Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can't contract. That makes the wrinkles relax and soften.

 

  • Generally, takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect, and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.

 

  • The effects from Botox will last three to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.

 

  • There are many uses for Botox, speak with your treatment provider to find out what is right for you.

 

DYSPORT:

Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA-approved prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines.

  • The same particle size as Botox (900kDa), which is considered the gold standard for efficacy
