If you are considering anti-aging solutions such as injectables, we welcome you to call our facility to learn more about these and other cosmetic treatment options.
What are neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are specialized medications that are designed to reduce muscle contractions in the muscles they are injected. They are often formulated with botulinum toxin type A. These medications are also used in other areas of medicine to help with issues such as cervical dystonia, overactive bladder, chronic migraines, and even excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Neuromodulators play a role in turning back the hands of time, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face. They are injected by Dr. Michael Scannon and his team to achieve the desired results for patients.
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
The team at Florida Westcoast Skin and Cancer Center can help patients determine the differences between these two neuromodulators to choose the one most appropriate for their needs. Below are just a few of the differences to take into consideration:
- Dysport is more diluted, allowing it to spread faster
- Botox is more potent and better for smaller areas
- Both are effective if administered by a skilled professional
