Today's blog post focuses on answering the question "Are Botox and Dysport safe to remove my wrinkles?"

Botox and Dysport injected by Dr. Roger Moore at DermacenterMD might be an excellent choice to reduce your wrinkles.

These are two products used for turning back the clock, so to speak, on the signs of aging.  Each product is a protein, botulinum toxin A, which reduces the activity of the muscles in the area it is injected into.  Both products have been around many years with excellent safety records when used by trained professionals. Over 2 million injections per year are reported in the United States. The cosmetic usage has been mostly for the face where Botox and Dysport can improve the aging features by reducing the appearance of wrinkles.  

Each product is FDA approved for the temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. The improvement in wrinkles is typically noted for 3 to 4 months and after this, the muscle function returns to normal.  It is the temporary effect which many people appreciate as they like the fact they are not doing anything permanent or too dramatic. With discussion of injectable agents, most people have concern about the discomfort.  Interestingly, by using one of the smaller needles, which is made for injection and advanced techniques of injection by Dr. Roger Moore, the Botox and Dysport at DermacenterMD is frequently rated as having minimal discomfort.  

When people want to appear younger, let others see them in more happy state (by removing frown /scowl lines), or simply want to look better Dr. Moore’s Dysport or Botox is worth a try. In addition, many people choose a board certified dermatologist like Dr. Moore since no other area of medicine is more highly trained in the skin. Dr. Moore’s pleasant demeanor, professionalism and the fact he performs his own injections, makes him top choice for many cosmetic clients in Elkhart, Granger, South Bend and the surrounding areas.
