Brand names: Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®, MYOBLOC®, and XEOMIN®
Ideally, Botox injections simply paralyze the superficial muscles of the face without negative side effects. Sometimes, though, the toxin migrates to the levator palpebrae muscle that controls eyelid lifting, leaving you with a droopy eye on the affected side. This happens more frequently if you rub the eye after the injection or if you lie down within a couple of hours after being treated. The effects of “bad Botox” lasts for a couple of weeks. Some doctors try to use additional injections of Botox to offset the problem, however, your eye will correct itself without further treatments.
Botox by the Allergan Medical Company will last about three to six months on average. The muscles that had been paralyzed by the toxin gradually return to normal functioning, with the reappearance of the wrinkles. Fine lines and wrinkling will be less noticeable when you have multiple injections over time because the muscle itself will shrink in size.
Botox and the other name brands for botulinum toxin require a prescription in order to be used. Because these are injections, you should have the drug administered by a doctor who is qualified to give them safely and with fewer adverse effects.
Both Botox and Dysport are brand names for the botulinum toxin normally produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. Dysport is specifically recommended for glabellar lines, which are the wrinkles you can get on your forehead between your eyebrows. Dysport injections do not take as long to see an effect but the effect may not last as long as is seen with Botox. Botox, on the other hand, can also be used to treat crow’s feet and lines elsewhere on the forehead besides the glabella. It can take more than a week for the maximum effect but can decrease wrinkle lines for up to six months. Dr. Kindred would be happy to advise on your specific case. Book an appointment today.
I’ve been to her practice twice and been warmly welcomed by everyone I encountered. Doc is so personable and knowledgeable. I now have a plan to address my hair concerns, which I thought was “just how my hair was. “Yelp

Dr. Kindred solved what I thought was an acne problem on my first visit! After having been prescribed antibacterials for years that either didn't help or made the issue worse, Dr. Kindred looked at it from a different angle - yeast. I am so thrilled to have found her. 5 stars!!Google
I have been going here for over a year and my skin has finally cleared up. They pretty quickly diagnosed me and after trial and error got me on the perfect skin treatment. If you are looking for skin help. This is the place to go 1,000%Google
