Every time we laugh, smile, frown, or show other facial expressions, we are contracting certain muscles in our face. In time, these muscles tend to become stuck in a state of contraction. It is at this time that we begin to notice signs of aging such as crow’s feet or frown lines. Lake Mary Botox® and Dysport offer a purified derivative of botulinum toxin and have the power to limit the contractions of often-used muscles. These substances relax the muscles of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions. Treatment with Botox® or Dysport can help your facial expression lines or wrinkles essentially disappear.

Areas most frequently treated are: frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Botox® and Dysport are injected into the muscles with a very thin needle – virtually painless.   The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes and the results last 2-6 months. 

Problems with excessive sweating? Many people suffer from a condition known as hyperhidrosis, a condition in which the body’s sweat glands are overactive. Regular antiperspirants and deodorants provide little relief. Botox is a safe, effective solution to this condition and provides the patient with long-lasting results.

Although Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that were made for the same purpose, they are different in some ways. The Molecule size in Disport is smaller than that of Botox. Have you ever heard, "Dysport lasts longer" or "Botox is better because........" Both are made to last about the same. 'What makes them different is the molecule size. Dysport has a smaller molecule size enabling it to work faster than Botox. Botox on some occasions takes 2 weeks to be at its most potency. Thus, one can see how people think one works better than the other.

Another difference between Botox and Dysport is their diffusion. Dysport has the ability to spread in a broader area thus dispensing itself further. That being said, Botox is used in smaller or less broader areas, which means it could last longer because more is injected into a smaller area.

Botox and Dysport are equally great in their own regard. It really comes down to personal preference as to what is preferred. Ask many questions to your Medical Professional and do not be happy with haphazard answers. On that note, Please make sure that when getting any injection of any sort, make sure you do your diligence on the provider you are seeking. Remember, every Medical Spa has Botox, Dysport, Fillers, etc. but, they are only as good as the providers that administer them.
