BOTOX® / Dysport™ are popular and simple cosmetic treatments for wrinkle reduction, severe underarm sweating and migraines.
BOTOX® / Dysport™ for wrinkles: BOTOX® or Dysport™ injections are safe, simple and effective methods for fading wrinkles. They are both prescription medicines approved by the FDA. They are injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to- severe wrinkles or to prevent wrinkles from forming. The treatment will usually last about 3-6 months, depending on the individual.
BOTOX® / Dysport™ work by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form. They are both very safe and highly effective treatments when performed by an experienced and qualified healthcare professional. At BioVital MedSpa, all injections are personally performed by Dr. Carlos Almonte M.D.
BOTOX® is onabotulinumtoxinA and is made by Allergan.
Dysport™ is abobotulinumtoxinA and is made by Medicis Aesthetics (makers of Restylane).

BOTOX® / Dysport™ for Severe Underarm Sweating: BOTOX®/Dysport™ treatment helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. BOTOX®/Dysport™ injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere. It’s an excellent treatment especially before big events to prevent sweats from staining your clothes and causing embarrassing situations. The treatment usually lasts about 6-9 months.
