Between the Lines: How to Decide if Botox or Dysport are Right For You

The board certified, nationally acclaimed dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego go beyond the hype to offer one of a kind, cosmetic enhancement to a wide range of patients. Botox® Cosmetic, once associated with exclusive celebrity treatments for anti-aging and facial rejuvenation, has gone on to become a household name, and evolved into a reliable and trusted medication for a broad spectrum of cosmetic and medical conditions.

Is Botox Right for You?

Whether you’re in your 20s or well into your 60s, the experienced dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego can correct a host of common skin conditions associated with the natural aging process.

Most Common Uses for Botox

Botox is a neuromodulator used to correct lines and wrinkles in the face. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, some of the most common uses for Botox include:

·       Crow’s feet
·       Creases in the forehead
·       Eyebrow lift
·       Frown lines
·       TMJ
·       Masseter muscle
·       Chin dimples
·       Gummy smile
·       Neck bands
·       Bunny lines

Benefits of Botox 

It’s never too early to start thinking about anti-aging treatments and facial rejuvenation. A fresh, vital appearance can be beneficial not only to a person’s self esteem, but for social and professional achievement and fulfillment as well. But neuromodulators have many practical, medical uses beyond the aesthetic. Botox has also been shown to help provide relief for:

·       Migraines
·       Crossed eyes
·       Incontinence
·       Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
·       Joint pain
·       Scarring

What is Dysport? 

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego also offers Dysport. Like Botox, Dysport is an injectable that helps to relax underlying muscles in the face to temporarily ease the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. Disport is typically used to treat:

·       Glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows)
·       Crow’s feet
·       Forehead creases

Dysport can also be used to treat a medical condition known as cervical dystonia (CD) in adults. People suffering from cervical dystonia experience excessive pulling and strain to the muscles of the neck and shoulders, and involuntary twisting and turning of the head as a result.

Botox or Dysport - Which One is Right for You? 

Botox and Dysport are the brand names for two similar injectables that are used to treat the same thing. The official name for Botox is onabotulinumtoxinA. The official name for Dysport is abobotulinumtoxinA. Both have been approved by the FDA to temporarily treat the same areas of the face for moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. Botox received FDA approval in 2002 and Dysport received FDA approval in 2009.

The experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology have extensive experience evaluating patients and designing unique treatment plans designed to address each patient’s individual aesthetic goals and needs. Because every face and every patient is unique, the best way to determine the plan that is right for you is to consult with an expert at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology. The newfound confidence, peace of mind, and renewed vitality for life that many patients experience after subtle enhancements and improvements to their appearance has kept patients flocking to the experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology year after year.
