What is Botox?

Botox has become the most popular treatment for wrinkles in the world due to its ease, effectiveness and wide range of uses. This injectable has been FDA approved to block the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes wrinkles.

Botox injections are a type A botulinum toxin protein that is injected into the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. The toxin freezes the muscles which in turn results in fewer lines and wrinkles.

What is Dysport?

Dysport injections also are type A protein toxins from botulinum that work in the same way as Botox injections. The advantages of Dysport is that is seems to deliver results up to two days faster. Patients that have continually received Botox may become immune to the toxin, and they can begin using Dysport.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox/Dysport?

Botox is an excellent option for patients in Birmingham who are looking to restore a more youthful look without having to undergo surgery. Most patients choose to treat wrinkles and fine lines such as those on the forehead, the crows feet around the eyes, and the area between the eyes known as the glabella.

Excessive Sweating (hyperhidrosis)

The doctors at Inverness Dermatology will review your health history and discuss your goals with you.

What Can I Expect After My Appointment?

Typically, our Botox/Dysport patients experience little to no downtime. Additionally, the actual procedure is only 10 minutes. We ask that patients avoid rubbing the treated area for at least 24 hours after their injection.

How much does Botox/Dysport cost?

This treatment for cosmetic reasons is not considered medically necessary so it will not be covered by your Insurance company. Botox/Dysport injections for Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, are covered by Insurance in many cases. Inverness Dermatology and Laser works with many insurance providers to assist patients in getting Botox in Birmingham for excessive sweating covered.
