Botox & Dysport in Baltimore, Maryland by Dr. Dean Kane

Botox and Dysport: The Best Wrinkle Relaxers in Baltimore and Maryland

Patients have come to love the Botox and Dysport effect, especially done by Dr. Dean Kane who is considered an expert in his field. Dr. Kane has over 33 years of experience in injecting neurotoxins to reduce wrinkles of the face. Dr. Kane is considered an expert injector and his Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine has been a training center for other doctors and nurses to teach the art of injecting Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Sculptra and Juvederm to receive the best results possible.


Dysport versus Botox: What is the Difference?

Dysport and Botox are very similar in their overall effects that they produce. Dysport and Botox are both neurotoxins produced by two different companies. We compare the similarities to Coke versus Pepsi. Both are a coke cola made by two different companies.  Botox was FDA approved for cosmetic uses in 2002 and in 2009 for Dysport. But the biggest differences patients of Dr. Kane are finding are that Dysport offers a softer and more natural control of the forehead muscles. Dysport patients of Dr. Kane say that they don’t get that super tight hold, but a more relaxed hold of their muscles between their eyebrows and in their forehead. While some patients want a softer hold, other patients with very strong muscle groups in the forehead with very deep wrinkles and furrows may want to consider using Botox as it has been known to provide a much stronger more “freeze” type effect. For patients who over use their muscles, Botox maybe a better fit for them.

How long does Botox and Dysport lasts?

Dysport has been FDA approved to last 4 months, and its effects begin to kick in within several days of the injection. Botox has been approved to last 3 months and both take up to 2 weeks to get their full effect. Dysport is ideal if you forget that you need your wrinkle fix for an important party or event, and you only have a few days to be ready for your big night out.  Some patients find that the effects of Botox and Dysport can sometimes last up to 6 months, but this is not the common experience. Most of Dr. Dean Kane’s patients routinely schedule their next treatment 4 months apart.

What are the uses of Botox and Dysport?

There are many exciting uses for Botox and Dysport to soften various aspect of the face from the brow down to the neck. In the brow, both will minimize the “ll” or the wrinkles between the eyebrows also known as the glabella muscle. Both will reduce the fine lines and wrinkles along the sides of the eyes known as the “crows feet”. Both can help with the horizontal lines across the forehead, the verticle lines on the lips often called the smoker lines, and the muscle banding on the neck.

How do you get a brow lift effect from Botox and Dysport?

Dr. Kane can achieve a Non-Surgical Brow Lift and Upper Eyelid Lift by artfully injecting Botox or Dysport in the muscles that would elevate the eyebrows into a beautiful arch. Botox and Dysport are ideal to remove the wrinkle and angry look between the eyebrows, soften the crows feet and diminish the horizontal lines in the forehead. When injected expertly by Dr. Dean Kane, Dysport and Botox can rebalances the muscles in the forehead to achieve a non-surgical brow lift and upper eyelid lift.  Baltimore patients receive a beautiful natural arch to their eyebrows and at the same time reduce the upper eyelid skin hooding.

What can I do about the corners of my mouth turning downward?

Many Maryland women complain of their lower corners of their mouths begin to turn down as they age. A combination of using fillers like Restylane Defyne or Restylane Lyft can be injected into the corners to support the corners in an upward direction. At the same treatment, Botox and Dysport can also be injected into the lower jaw line to release the muscle pulling the corners of the lips down. Once injected the corners are free to have that happy smile again.

What can I do about my Lipstick Lines and Smoker Lines?

Botox and Dysport are used by Dr. Dean Kane in the lips to minimize the vertical lines along the entire mouth. Whether the lip lines are due to natural expression, smoking or loss of volume from the aging process, Botox and Dysport can be injected into these lines along the vermillion border to stop the muscles from squeezing into creases and thereby relaxing the entire mouth. The results are fuller and softer lips without making them any larger. For patients who have lost a lot of volume in their lips, it would be best to do a combination of fillers to plump out the lips and the use of Botox or Dysport which stops the lips from creating the lip lines.

Can Botox help the bands on my neck?

Over time the bands along the neck can become prominent and create vertical cords along the length of the neck. Dr. Dean Kane injects Botox and Dysport right into these bands to relax the tightness and create a softer smoother neck line.
