BOTOX® Cosmetic has long been considered one of the most effective wrinkle treatments available. By blocking the nerve impulses that cause your facial muscles to contract and form wrinkles, BOTOX® eliminates deep lines, crow’s feet, and other facial wrinkles, giving you a rejuvenated overall appearance.
Dysport® is the closest alternative to BOTOX. It is composed of the same substance – botulinum toxin A – and works in a similar fashion, but uses different dosing and dilution methods.
Dermal fillers are another alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic, but they don’t work in the same way: instead of paralyzing the muscles that are causing your wrinkles, dermal fillers add volume beneath wrinkles to flatten them out. This can be very useful when your goal is to target specific problems with the face, such as smile lines, sunken cheeks, or thin lips. However, most dermal fillers are not as versatile as BOTOX®.
The right injectable for you will depend on your specific needs and goals. There is no single “magic ingredient” that will solve all of your facial problems; instead, you may find that a combination of BOTOX® and another injectable or skin treatment will provide you with the best results. Our experienced staff at Facial Aesthetics. can help you develop a treatment plan that meets your unique goals.
