I need a very quick fix for my frown lines. We are having a family reunion with a professional photographer coming in. Would you recommend Dysport over Botox for this? Which product will last the longest?

Regarding the difference between Dysport and Botox, it is first important to know that they are the same type of product in that they are both Botulin toxin. However, Dysport does seem to take effect more quickly than Botox after the injections. Botox usually starts taking effect within 5 days, with full results showing after 10 days. With Dysport, results usually start within 2 days with the full effect showing by 5 days. I prefer starting with Botox, and reserving the Dysport for patients who do not have a complete dissolution of their wrinkles from the Botox. Usually they both last about 3-1/2 to 4 months.

Botox worked beautifully on my boyfriend. He lost his crow’s feet and frown lines completely. I know that he gets injections every few months or so. Once Botox treatments begin, will they work forever, or do the wrinkles reach a stage where the Botox no longer relaxes them?

Botox. In theory, Botox should work every time you get injected, regardless of whether it is injected in the forehead, between the eyes, or around the eyes – the crow’s feet. We have noticed, however, that after the age of 60 or so, the Botox is not lasting as long as it once did. Usually, after receiving Botox injections in the same area 4 or 5 times, the effects will last longer, on average going from about 3 months to 6 months. This is especially true the wrinkles in the forehead and between the eyes. In the crow’s feet, however, the effect usually stays at about 3 months. We also find that sometimes fewer units of Botox are needed after several treatments. For example, if 20 units were used between the eyes, after 4 or 5 times it may be possible to go down to 15 units of Botox. For the forehead, if starting with 20 units, after about a year and a half we may be able to go down to 10 units for the same result.

I am very interested in the new technique that combines liposuction with lasers, the laser-assisted liposuction. Can any area of the body be treated with this procedure?

Yes all areas of the body are good candidate for LAL (Laser Assisted Liposuction). In particular, LAL is very good for posterior arms, face, and neck

I would love to have laser skin resurfacing to get rid of some acne scars and new wrinkles on my cheeks. Will both of these problems be addressed with the laser resurfacing? Will there be any pain with this procedure, and if so, what type of anesthetic will you use?

Yes both issues can be addressed with some sort of Laser Skin Resurfacing. The settings (depth, power ect..) are differents but can be performed at the same setting. Usually a topical anesthetic cream is used in conjunction with a oral relaxant and sometimes a local anesthetic is injected in the areas to be treated. Pain in general is minimal.
