What Are Botox® and Dysport®? How do they work?

BOTOX and Dysport are the brand names of a purified protein produced in a laboratory. Although both sources are derived from bacteria, neither BOTOX nor Dysport is harmful. They are modified extensively in the lab, and their concentrations are diluted, making it one of the safest medications known. When injected at the right dose and using the correct injection technique, side effects are extraordinarily rare. Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. of New York, NY is an expert injector of BOTOX and Dysport. At the Klausner Institute in New York, NY, you can expect to receive the best treatment for your specific needs.

How do Botox and Dysport Work?

BOTOX and Dysport are safe and reliable injectable medications that block the actions of certain nerves. For wrinkles, this means relaxing the muscles that crease the skin or pull the skin down.

BOTOX and Dysport are very effective at:

  • Smoothing wrinkles and folds, such as:
    • Forehead worry lines
    • Between the brows frown lines
    • Crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes
    • Vertical lines around the lips
    • Dimpling of the chin
  • Lifting the eyebrows and corners of the mouth
  • Relaxing vertical neck bands

Expert injector Dr. Klausner uses BOTOX or Dysport in combination with injectable fillers for nonsurgical procedures, such as nonsurgical brow lifts and nonsurgical facelifts.

BOTOX and Dysport both come as a powder, and Dr. Klausner adds saline to turn the powder into a liquid suitable for injection. Dr. Klausner never dilutes either product more than necessary to cut costs. With each patient, Dr. Klausner opens a fresh bottle and dilutes the BOTOX or Dysport right before injection. The medication is then injected directly into very specific muscles of the face in order to achieve the desired effect. The BOTOX and Dysport proteins remain in the muscle for about 3 – 4 months, at which point, they are broken down by the body and excreted. At no point does BOTOX or Dysport get absorbed by the body. If injected correctly, BOTOX and Dysport do not have systemic effects throughout the body, and they only affect the muscles into which they are injected.

Side effects or problems with BOTOX or Dysport injections are almost exclusively due to inexperienced or unskilled injectors. This is why you should be very selective as to where you get your BOTOX or Dysport injections. You should know the qualifications and experience of the physician performing the treatment. Due to Dr. Klausner’s education and experience, including her double board certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, you can be confident that she has earned the title of an expert injector.

Properly done BOTOX and Dysport injections should result in a relaxed and smoothed facial appearance, achieving your desired look without making you look unnatural. Subtle, natural facial relaxation is what you should expect from your BOTOX or Dysport treatment.
