Botox® Cosmetic Injections in Boca RatonBotox® Cosmetic Injections in Boca Raton

Botox® Cosmetic is a popular choice for wrinkle treatment in Boca Raton. Botox® injections are used to temporarily paralyze the muscles under the skin that cause facial wrinkles, especially frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Botox® wrinkle treatment can help you look younger and more relaxed without surgery.

The wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox® injections are not permanent. Although results vary, they typically last for four to six months, and can be repeated as necessary. Botox® is injected into the muscles under the skin with thin needles, causing the muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines to become temporarily paralyzed. The injection process only takes about ten minutes, and most patients do not need anesthesia, although a topical anesthetic can be applied, if desired.

Dysport Vs Botox

Dr. Handal, at the Surgical Sanctuary Center, uses both Botox and Dysport. Dr. Handal became an early adopter of Botox when it first came out and was overly pleased with the results. Now he has incorporated Dysport into his practice. Dr. Handal not only uses the Botox/Dysport to enhance the youthful appearance of his patients but also uses it prior to Laser to ensure optimal results.

Both Dysport and Botox are derived from botulinum toxin Type A, both are used to relax muscles, have gradual onset and both have been used for years. Both Dysport and Botox are approved by the FDA for cosmetic uses in the glabellar frown lines ( also know as the 11's), and can be used in other parts of the face and body.

There is a quicker onset of action with Dysport. Onset is seen as early as 2 days vs 3 to 4 days with Botox. The duration of treatment is relatively the same. Some Drs refer to it as Coke vs. Pepsi.

Botox has more name recognition in the United States where Dysport has more name recognition in Europe. Good that you now have a choice. Dr. Handal feels confident that both products do a great job. We do offer both.
