Like Botox, Dysport is an injectable botulinum toxin type A protein used to treat the appearance of “11 lines”, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. Although Botox and Dysport are essentially the same product, subtle differences have been reported.

Botox vs. Dysport

Manufactured by different companies, Botox was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2002 while Dysport was introduced to the market later and FDA approved in 2009. Although Botox is the better known brand, Dysport has been reported to work within 1 to 2 days versus 3 to 5 days reported with Botox. Even more, Dysport may last a little longer than Botox.

Resistant to Botox?

Although extremely rare, some patients have exhibited a “resistance” to Botox . Dysport may be an effective alternative for patients whose wrinkles and fine lines seem unresponsive to Botox.

If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to reduce fine lines, crow’s feet or forehead furrows and are between 18 and 65 years of age, you may be a candidate for Dysport. To schedule a complimentary consultation, call 423-648-4011. If you have never tried Dysport, we are currently offering it at 50 percent off usual price while supplies last and if booked before 12-31-2012.

Have you ever wondered what you would look like with breast implants? Or, maybe you are seriously considering breast augmentation but are unsure of just how much larger you would like to go.

Our practice is proud to announce the arrival of the new Crisalix 3D breast imaging simulator to our private, breast augmentation consultations. This cutting edge technology helps patients by taking the guesswork out of size and style selection.

Using photos uploaded to a computer from a digital camera and a few measurements of the patient , the Crisalix preview technology reconstructs the patient’s body in 3D . The patient then can make endless adjustments to implant size and style to preview how it will look from a 3D perspective. This technology is the world’s first physical 3D simulator . Integrating properties of the muscle, skin, fat and glandular parts , this technology allows for realistic detail never achieved before.

To celebrate the addition of this technology to our practice, we are currently offering silicone breast implants to first time breast augmentation patients for $3775. Breast augmentation surgery must be completed from November 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013. Certain restrictions apply, so call our office at 423-648-4011 for more details.
