Dr. Howard offers BOTOX®, and Dysport injections in his Roswell office. Age, sunlight, etics, and long-term use of our facial animation muscles creates many unwanted lines and creases on our faces over time. The good news is that many of these wrinkles and creases can be minimized or even completely eliminated by the simple injection of a class of medications known as neuromodulators! These injections are done in the office without surgery!
So what is a neuromodulator? Neuromodulators have been used for many years in the field of cosmetic and aesthetic medicine. While Botox was the first such medication to market in the cosmetic realm, we now thankfully have several options available with the newer addition of Dysport. It has been FDA approved for the use on the glabellar muscles, which are the muscles that cause the vertical “number 11” creases that appear between the eyebrows.
Neuromodulators work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for the creation of facial animation creases. Horizontal wrinkles across the forehead, vertical creases between the eyebrows, “crow’s feet” wrinkles on the outsides of the eyes, and several other areas of the face are commonly treated.
BOTOX®, and Dysport injections typically last anywhere from three to four months, so occasional return visits to Dr. Howard are required to maintain your relaxed-looking results. No anesthesia is required.
So what are the differences between BOTOX® and Dysport? While minor variations do exist on a molecular level, each product performs very similar in the clinical setting. Some patients respond better to one or another and Dr. Howard can determine if one is better indicated for you. For those rare patients who may develop antibodies or resistance to Dysport or BOTOX® may be indicated. Currently, Dysport is slightly more affordable as well.
