Many people desire to have a younger looking appearance. Whether it is for personal reasons or they are hoping that a fresher appearance will get them ahead in their job hunt, many people are having “things done” to help them radiate youth. Botox has been a popular choice among many people needing a small fix for the eyes, bridge between the eyes, forehead, or lines around the mouth. However, some patients are finding that they have begun to experience Botox immunity or resistance. For those who are not finding the results that they desire from Botox injections, Dysport is an effective alternative.
The human body can form a resistance or intolerance to many drugs. Prolonged use can limit the effects that many medications have at relieving the symptoms that people do not wish to have. Although it is not a common occurrence, antibodies can develop to the Botox molecule, which result in patients having a very short duration of the injection’s benefits. For patients where this is a concern, typically switching to Dysport injections will provide the expected results.
Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport has been designed to last for up to four entire months to prevent the contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyes. For patients who have been treated with Botox and have not seen the results that they desired, Dysport has a different molecular composition that has proven effective in treating frown lines.
