Thank you for your inquiry. You are not alone. Many people have longer lasting results with Dysport. Since you know this already it shouldn't be hard to find a board certified surgeon who uses Dysport in your area. A simple Google search should suffice. I offer Dysport at both my Laval and Montreal locations. Best of Luck.
Dysport for stronger muscles
for me, dysport is a better product for people such as yourself. It tends to be harder to dilute accurately so inevitably we tend to inject more and it has a slightly greater diffusion distance, the distance over which its effect spreads. As a result, for someone like yourself where perhaps your glabellar muscles are unusually strong, I would certainly consider dysport as my toxin of choice.
Botox should typically last 3-4 months after injections. Some patients respond better to Dysport or Xeomin; because you responded well to the treatment with Dysport I would recommend seeking out a physician in your area who injects with this neuromodulator regularly.
I agree with my colleagues. Your options are to increase your Botox dose, get injections more frequently, or try the other neuromodulators. Just the way some people respond better to tylenol for a headache, and other people respond better to motrin, I have found that some individuals respond better to Botox and other patients respond better to Dysport or Xeomin. You should be able to determine online which products an injector uses. Often practices that do frequent injections, like ours, regularly stock all three. Best of luck!
Longevity of Botox treatment
BOTOX should not wear off in one month. You may not be getting the right dosage. Be sure to choose a physician who is experienced in BOTOX. According to the FDA insert, Dysport lasts for a similar amount of time as BOTOX. However, some patients do report that their results have lasted longer with Dysport and are happier with this alternative toxin. You can also try Xeomin.
Botox wears off quickly in forehead and 11s after recruiting muscles start to compensate. What should I do?
Hello em kay,If your Botox isn't lasting for more than a month to your glabella (11s) you have a few options. One is go up on the dose, although 60 units there is a pretty high dose. Your other option is to try to change up the neuromodulator you are using. The other option is to change the neuromodulator you are using. I'd recommend you try either Dsyport or Xeomin. I'm not sure why you can't find anyone near you who offers them as they are both great treatment options. Try to call around and find a physician injector or check out the Dysport website and use the physician finder. I hope this helps and good luck.
Hello, and thanks for your question. You may need to get injected more frequently than the average person, or you might just need more product. If you keep up with it, with time, you'll likely find that your muscles will weaken and you will need less Botox/Dysport, and less frequently. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
