Botulinum toxin 


BOTOX and Dysport injections have become increasingly popular in recent years. Consisting of a neuromodulator, they are able to relax muscles by temporarily blocking neurological signals. As a result, all four types of injections are effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. With that said, there are subtle nuances between BOTOX, Dysport. Before scheduling an appointment for any of these injections, you should familiarize yourself with their unique characteristics.

WHAT IS BOTOX? Developed and marketed by Allergan, BOTOX is an injection consisting of a specific formulation of botulinum toxin (BTX) known as onabotulinumtoxinA. It’s injected directly into muscle tissue for the purpose of blocking neurological signals to the respective tissue. Our muscles rely on neurological signals to contract. When you flex a muscle, your brain is telling that muscle to contract. If a muscle remains in a contracted state, however, it may cause discomfort as well as the formation of wrinkles or fine lines. BOTOX injections are designed to relax contracted muscle tissue such as this by blocking neurological signals.

WHAT IS DYSPORT? Like BOTOX, Dysport is an injection containing BTX that’s designed to block neurological signals to the targeted muscle tissue. With that said, Dysport uses a different formulation of BTX than BOTOX. While BOTOX uses onabotulinumtoxinA, Dysport uses abobotulinumtoxinA. It still consists of the same basic neuromodulator that temporarily blocks neurological signals to the muscle or muscles in which it’s injected. Furthermore, the Dysport injections are administered in the same way as BOTOX injections, with each session lasting about 10 minutes. But Dysport uses a different formulation of BTX than its BOTOX counterpart, resulting in a few subtle differences.

How do neurotoxins work? Neuromodulators (used interchangeably with “neurotoxins”) work by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles responsible for causing the lines and wrinkles visible when your face is at rest. As a result, their appearance is greatly reduced, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

ONSET According to the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM), the average onset of Dysport is just three hours. To put that number into perspective, BOTOX has an average onset of 72 hours.

What Types of Dermal Fillers Are Available?

There are natural dermal fillers and synthetic ones. Here is a quick comparison of some of the most popular derma fillers available on the market today: Restylane®, Juvederm®, Radiesse+®  and Sculptra. Both Restylane and Juvederm offer custom formulations created for specific areas of the face.


Restylane was approved by the FDA in 2003 and the company has since added to their product line with their newest addition approved in 2020. It is made with hyaluronic acid (HA) – a substance that naturally exists in our skin. When hyaluronic acid is injected into specific areas, it restores the volume in that area.

Restylane is offered in different formulations, some including lidocaine, which helps ease injection discomfort. These formulations vary in particle size to address anything from fine lines and wrinkles to deep lines and also add increased volume.

The Restylane® product line includes:

Restylane can last anywhere from 6-9 months. Side effects can include bruising, swelling at the injection site, redness. Rare but other more serious side effects can include: infections, allergic reactions, keloids, and superficial necrosis, etc.


Radiesse, which includes Radiesse+® and Belotero Balance®, are dermal fillers that contain calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is a long-lasting injectable drug that stimulates the production of collagen in your skin to improve your skin’s natural appearance. It can help to give you plump cheeks and full lips or make your hands appear less wrinkly.


The team at Genesis Medical also offer the line of dermal fillers from Juvéderm. Some of the fillers available include:

Juvéderm Ultra XC: to plump up your lips

Juvéderm Ultra Plus: thicker filler used to treat volume loss in your face, specifically around the mouth and nose

Men also want to look younger and more athletic. Dermal fillers for men can help achieve that without surgery. A stronger jawline, more defined cheeks, and projected chin are the most popular requests from men when it comes to dermal fillers. Besides, dermal fillers work fantastically to make men look younger and fresher when applied to their faces. The results will be seen immediately and will last for up to two years.
