Botox® and Dysport™ for Wrinkles and Sweating
Used safely in medicine for decades, BOTOX® has truly revolutionized the field of cosmetic dermatology with a safety and efficacy profile that supersedes almost all other cosmetic procedures. Having minute amounts of botulinum toxin injected selectively into a variety of muscle groups, you can rid yourself of those lines of laughter, anger, and grief that have etched in your skin over the years. All without losing the natural expressions of whom you are. With an artistic touch, we can enhance the shape of your eyebrows, widen the glimmer in your eye, tighten the neck and jaw line and take years off your face. Forehead lines, crow’s feet, lines between and under the eyes are all easily treated within minutes and with no downtime. Fully reversible, BOTOX® is safely absorbed and requires re-treatment at 4-6 months intervals.
After years of successful use throughout Europe, Dysport™ has finally been FDA approved in the U.S. as a competitor to Botox® in the treatment of wrinkles. Generically known as Abobotulinum Toxin, Dysport™ is a different sub-type of the well known muscle relaxer. Although similar in many ways, Dysport™ has some differences in onset of action, longevity, and in the actual result of treatment. Neither better nor worse than its name brand competitor, Abobotulinum toxin may suit some patients better than others. Ask Dr. Frank which one is best for you!
Don’t ruin your clothes with sweat
Excess sweating causes both physical and social discomfort. This difficult problem, seen commonly on the underarms, hands, and feet, can now be treated effectively using BOTOX® or Dysport™. Local injection into the area of involvement, safely and reversibly stuns overactive sweat glands for up to 6 months. The chemical that BOTOX® inhibits for wrinkles also is involved in the release of sweat in the body. Virtually free of side effects, the treatment does not have any effect on the body’s ability to regulate temperature or on other sweat glands elsewhere on the body. Great for individuals sensitive to deodorants and antiperspirants. Now approved by the FDA, this treatment is often covered by healthcare insurance companies. Dr. Frank and his staff can assist you in the approval process. For those who are not candidates for Botox, there are several other options that Dr. Frank can discuss upon consultation.
