Spotlight on Plastic Surgery — Neurotoxins Botox® & Dysport®

What a concept that a simple injection can make you look better! In a quest for a more youthful appearance, many men and women turn to Orange County Plastic Surgery to seek treatments to minimize laugh lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, seek fuller lips and cheeks, and to fill indentations on the face, bridge of nose, or wish to lose excess fat from their necks. Today we will focus on neurotoxins.

Botulinum toxin injections, often referred to by the commercial names, BOTOX Cosmetic® or Dysport®, are biological toxins that have been transformed into therapeutic agents. Work with botulinum toxin began in the late 1960s to treat neurological disorders. Today, BOTOX® and Dysport® have been FDA approved for cosmetic treatment of frown lines between the brows. Neurotoxin injections are also widely used for treatment of forehead furrows, “crow’s feet,” lines and wrinkles of the lower face, and even nasal muscles (to decrease nostril flaring or nasal “bunny lines”).

The lines and wrinkles that respond to BOTOX® injections are those caused by the facial muscles – specifically those muscles that contract during facial expressions such as frowning or squinting. Neurotoxins have been shown to stop excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) and to minimize or prevent migraine headaches. Theoretically, Botox® and Dysport® do the same thing, but it is telling that our staff feels that Dysport® acts more quickly and lasts longer than Botox® and is their preferred neurotoxin. Come in to meet Dr. Compoginis on April 29th and benefit from his Dysport® special.
