What's better for frown lines? Dysport or botox?

What's better for frown lines? Dysport or botox?

Similar Results: In my experience, both give very similar results. I've had some patients say that Dysport is a bit more natural (i.e. less "frozen") than Botox. Dysport also comes on faster (3-5 days instead of 7-10 with Botox.) I have quite a few patients who request Dysport over Botox and I prefer it when I treat my own lines. FYI you can get a really great deal on Dysport right now with Aspire. (google it) ...Read more

How does botox or Restylane (dermal fillers) treatment work?

How does botox or Restylane (dermal fillers) treatment work?

Differently!: Botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) are not similar at all and they are not interchangeable. Botox relaxes the muscles under the skin which allows the skin to move less and have less wrinkles. Motion wrinkles go away quickly, resting wrinkles take multiple treatments. Restylane (dermal fillers) is filler that replaces lost volume in the face. It works great for fixing facial contour, it does very little for wrinkles. ...Read more

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

Different drugs: Botox is what we call a neurotoxin. It's a purified protein that blocks the transmission of a signal from the nerve ending to the muscle. By doing so, it allows the muscle to relax and in turn, it gives the skin a chance to relax and the wrinkles disappear. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin to fill depressions. It's usually used to reduce laugh lines or plump the lips. ...Read more

Are the results of botox or dysport injections to eliminate the horizontal lines on my forehead permanent?

No: Botox and Dysport work by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to scrunch up. When the effects wear off in 3-4 months, the skin will start to move again and the wrinkles will come back. Regular maintenance is required to make the lines stay away. ...Read more

Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?

Options to treat: Lid ptosis from Botox A occurs when the botox crosses the tarsal plate in the upper lid and inhibits the lid lifting muscles or because you are using your forehead muscles to lift the lids and Botox reduces the lift. Ulthera and Peleve can be used to lift lids. Topical treatments are available. I would revisit whoever did the Botox for treatment of the lid ptosis. Or get a second opinion. ...Read more

My eyes are very hooded. How effective is a botox brow lift (a.K.A. Chemical browlift)?

My eyes are very hooded. How effective is a botox brow lift (a.K.A. Chemical browlift)?

Not effective: A botox brow lift is used to target the lateral aspect of the brow. This will have minimal effect on excess hooding which could be a combination of excess eyelid skin (dermatochalasis) and a low brow. If this is the case, then frequently people compensate unknowingly by keeping the brow elevated. In this scenario a brow lift is needed initially plus or minus a blepharoplasty afterwards. ...Read more

Would belotero reduce the heavy lines between by eyebrows? What are the differences in the fillers belotero, Restylane and juvederm? Would a belotero injection between my eyebrows (for those wrinkles that look like the number eleven) be the best filler op

Dysport/Botox first: In this situation, you need to get Dysport or Botox to relax the muscle first. After a few weeks, if the line is still present, you can use a filler to help further improve results. Belotero, although not fda approved for this region, can be used to accomplish this task. Be aware that a very rare complication of skin necrosis is possible with any filler in this region. ...Read more
