Dr. Lord is trained in advanced BOTOX & DYSPORT techniques using both the elevator and depressor muscles. This allows for full facial expression without the wrinkles, resulting in a lifted, refreshed and more youthful appearance. Results usually last from three to five months. Areas of lower muscle activity and patients with less muscle density usually require less. Patients can often reduce the amount needed to sustain results by returning for a touch-up treatment as soon as they detect excess movement in the treated area. Over time, many patients need fewer treatments, as the etching of lines relax and may even disappear. Younger patients can use both as a preventative treatment and usually need much less. Getting rid of crows feet and frown lines for good is easier than you think.
Our patients appreciate knowing they have options. Like Kleenex® and Band-Aid®, Botox® is a brand name that has become synonymous with the product. Botox® was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2002. In 2009, a competitor, Dysport® was approved for the same use. Both of these brands use botulinum toxin type A as their active ingredient.
Although Botox® and Dysport® provide comparable results, Dysport does have a faster onset and many patients feel it lasts a bit longer. For these reasons, we choose Dysport as our main injectable neuromodulator. Botox® is still available at our patients request.
Ultimately, it is far more important WHO is injecting your Botox or Dysport, than which of these two products you are using. Botox/Dysport mistakes and bad results are made by people, not the product.
