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.

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).

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.

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
