Tip: Botox could be something to frown about

Did you ever notice that sometimes Botox seems to work better—or last longer—than others? It could be the doctor, it could be the quality, or it could be that there’s some funny business going on in the office. Botox is delivered to physicians in a freeze-dried form, and the doctor then mixes it with saline.

As we age, our bodies slow down the process of regenerating cells, so our lips, which are already thin, get even…

BOTOX® vs. Dysport

It used to be, when you asked a doctor for Botox®, you got Botox. That’s because Botox was first in the market and had no competition. These days, that’s all changing. The FDA has approved Dysport®, a new anti-wrinkle injectible also made from botulinum toxin. Should you ask your doctor to make the switch? That’s an important question, so let’s face the facts. Dysport is a little different from Botox, but also safe and effective. It spreads a little more after it has been injected. The advantage is that if large areas (like your forehead) need…
