Botox Injections in Bryan Texas or in College Station
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name Botox®, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Prescription Dysport, like Botox, is an abobotulinumtoxin A injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles. Dysport is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines. Dysport and Botox are competitor brands and most patients find that they yield similar, if not identical, results. Dysport tends to be more cost sensitive, whereas many patients tend to be more familiar with the Botox brand name. It is for these reasons that Dr. Rude offers both to his patients.
