Pensacola Physical Medicine offers two injectable products to treat wrinkles: Botox and Dysport.
Pensacola Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin that is used for various medical and cosmetic purposes. It works by temporarily paralyzing or weakening muscles. In cosmetic applications, the temporary muscle relaxation caused by Botox results in the reduction of wrinkles and lines associated with repetitive facial expressions. For example, it can soften frown lines between the eyebrows, smooth forehead wrinkles, and lessen the appearance of crow's feet around the eyes.
-Botox lasts on average 3-4 Months
-You can see the maximum results of your treatment in 7 to 14 days after treatment
-Price $10 per unit, Special for November
-Areas treated and average units used:
Pensacola Dysport works in the same way as Botox to block chemical signals. Dysport is much more diluted and spreads quickly compared to Botox. This makes it great for larger surface areas like the forehead. Botox is much more potent, making it amazing for small areas and pesky wrinkles like Crow's feet.
-Dysport lasts 3-4 months
-You can see the results of your treatment in 48 hours with maximum results in 7 days
-Price $5 unit
Dysport requires a greater number of units per treatment (the general rule is 1 unit of Botox = 3 units of Dysport)
Combining Botox and dermal fillers is a popular approach in the field of aesthetic medicine to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. While Botox and dermal fillers serve different purposes and have distinct mechanisms of action, using them together can provide a more complete and harmonious facial makeover. Here's how the two treatments can work together:

When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.
When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.
