The Long-term Effects of Botox®

Botox is the gold standard for neuromuscular blockers to lessen the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. No other neuromuscular blocker is as popular or widely used for both medical and cosmetic applications. But Botox injections typically only last 3–6 months, so to keep up the results, multiple injections per year are required. Just like any other medication, long-term use of Botox comes with a few effects that users should be aware of. Not all of these long-term effects are negatives, and overall Botox is still considered to be safe with “no long-term or life-threatening adverse effects related to botulinum toxin treatment for any cosmetic indications” (source).

The Surprising Uses of Botox®

Think Botox injections are only good for eliminating wrinkles and fine lines on your face? Think again! Botox has several surprising uses that you’ve probably never heard of…until now! We’ve got the scoop on all the different ways Botox can improve your look and feel from head to toe.

Curbs Excessive Sweating

One of the most exciting new uses for Botox is to stop the excessive sweating caused by hyperhidrosis. For this incurable and embarrassing condition, the patient’s underarms, hands, feet, or wherever else is injected with Botox to stop the sweat gland signals. This has been a godsend to hyperhidrosis patients everywhere since prior to discovering this Botox benefit, they had very few treatment options. Read More

Can Botox Help with Excess Sweating?

Excessive sweating not related to heat or activity, also known as hyperhidrosis, affects about 1% of the population in the United States. Overactive nerve signals are the most common cause. These nerves signal the sweat glands to overproduce, leaving you all sweaty for seemingly no reason. This causes most people extreme discomfort and embarrassment. It can even prevent some people from being able to work or have normal social lives. Efforts to conceal hyperhidrosis are usually futile and put tons of undue stress and expense on the patient.

Why Winter Is a Great Time to Have Your Botox Done

Summer gets all the attention, but we think the winter holiday season is just as important! Winter brings with it tons of social gatherings like costume parties, bonfires, Thanksgiving feasts, and gift-giving celebrations. However, winter is not always kind to our skin. During winter, the temperature cools and the humidity falls, while sunlight decreases in angle, duration, and intensity. But why do these changes wreak so much havoc on your skin? Read More

What Areas Can be Treated with Botox/Dysport?

If lines on your face are stressing you out, we have the solution. Botox® and Dysport® are both proven to banish wrinkles, fine lines, and expression lines with minimally-invasive injections that require very little downtime.

Botox vs. Dysport

Botox and Dysport are both botulinum toxin products and are marketed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. While Botox and Dysport are very similar in their effects, they have some notable differences. Dysport is known to set quicker than Botox and provide noticeable results in just 2-3 days, versus up to a week with Botox. The composition of each injection is also different, with Botox being significantly more potent than Dysport per unit. However, this potency is reflected in the price, so results with either substance cost about the same. Read More
