What is Botox®? Botox® is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin in the form of a purified protein. The mechanism of action for Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) is really quite simple; it is injected into facial muscles but really doesn’t affect the muscle at all. Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) works by blocking the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle. The areas typically treated with Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) for wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips (smokers lines or gummy smile). There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract, causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth. The effects of Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) last approximately three to four months, at which time the patient will require retreatment. What is Dysport®? Dysport® is a Botulinum Toxin product developed in the United Kingdom during the early 1990’s. Originally created to treat neurological and ophthalmic conditions, Dysport® is now known to treat a variety of conditions, including moderate to severe frown lines. During the procedure, a small amount of Dysport® is injected directly into the facial muscles that correspond with wrinkles and lines. No local anesthetic is required and patients can expect treatment to take 10-20 minutes. The esthetic results of Dysport® injections generally last 12 to 16 weeks. Fortunately, due to muscles “unlearning” the habit of frowning and/or squinting, the need for injections may become less frequent.
