What’s the buzz with Botox and Dysport? Plastic surgeon Dr. Forrest Roth is here to give us the inside scoop. “Botox and Dysport are prescription medicines that are injected into muscles to correct facial lines or wrinkles between the eyebrows in patients 18 to 65 years old,” says Roth. Both are temporary. However, Botox has been around a little longer with an FDA approval in 2002, while Dysport was approved in 2009. Patients who are allergic to cow’s milk protein should not have Dysport. The differences between the two are similar to the differences between Coke & Pepsi. Dysport is a little less expensive than Botox. So really it comes down to a personal preference. Plasticsurgeonwestave.com or 713-559-9300.
