Botox and Dysport are prescription medicines that are injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe expression lines, and other unwanted wrinkles. Both Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxins, type A. Botilinum toxins are agents used to block nerve activity in muscles, which facilitates in a temporary relaxing of the muscles. This relaxing effect leaves you with no wrinkles, smoother and tighter skin, and overall gives you the possibility of a dramatic difference in your appearance*!
Cascade Medical Wellness is committed to providing in-depth information about each product, so our patients have more than one option.
Botox is made by a company called Allergan. It’s been around for over two decades and has an extremely high rate of efficacy and (most importantly) safety. It was the first product of its type approved by the FDA.
Back in April of 2009, the FDA approved a competitor to Botox called Dysport, which we also offer to our patients.
Slight differences between the two (such as minor duration of efficacy and quickness of onset) can be further discussed during your initial consultation with Cascade Medical Wellness.
Both Botox and Dysport remain the safest and most effective injectable wrinkle reducers. These products may exhibit a type of quality that speaks for itself, but it’s also vital to consider the importance of injection technique. It is truly just as important as the product you choose!
Both Botox and Dysport are often used on vital parts of the face and body. Please be sure to invest your time and energies with a physician who can properly administer this specialized treatment before choosing these two wrinkle-removing injectable options.
