Botox Q & A

What are the benefits of Botox and Dysport?

Botox and Dysport, injectable serums made from the neurotoxin botulinum toxin A, relax the muscles and improve circulation. Once the muscle relaxes fully, it no longer contracts or tightens. Relaxing the muscles also relaxes the wrinkles and lines that appear when the muscle remains tight and rigid. Although the results of both Dysport and Botox are temporary, Dr. Weinman gives continuous treatments to sustain results. Receiving another treatment prior to the effects of the first treatment wearing off helps retain the skin's youthful-looking appearance.

How long do the effects of Botox treatments last?

Botox and other similar treatments last anywhere from 3-6 months. When Dr. Weinman relaxes the muscles responsible for forming wrinkles, creases, and lines, he helps soften the skin and tissues and allows the skin to appear smoother and younger looking. The botulinum toxin A used to create the serum doesn’t offer a permanent solution, however. The health and texture of the skin determines how long the effects of the injections last. If the skin is still healthy with only minor wrinkles and lines, the results may last up to 6 months. If the skin and soft tissues start to sag or deep wrinkles form, the results may only last 2 or 3 months. Once Dr. Weinman performs a thorough examination, he estimates how long the treatment will last.

What’s hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a health condition where the body sweats excessively from areas it normally does not. The sweating often presents itself in at least 2 areas at a time, and may include the palms, soles of the feet, face, back, abdomen, under the arms, or anywhere else on the body. Dr. Weinman uses Botox to help patients with hyperhidrosis control their excessive sweating. The active ingredient in the serum blocks the chemical that turns on the sweat glands. In essence, it burns away sweat produced in or near the treatment area.
