Thinking About Botox? Try Dysport.

You know how one day your hair looks just fine and then the next you simply cannot go another day without a haircut? That’s how it goes with space between my brows. One day it’s smooth and furrow-free, and the next I catch a glimpse at that wrinkle in my rear-view mirror and know: It’s time for another round of Dysport.

I’ve been getting Dysport for almost two years. Here’s a video of the first time. (Note that even back then I was wearing stripes.) But  I always forget it’s even there until someone asks me about Botox, at which point I point to my forehead and direct them to Skin Rejuvenation Clinic for Dysport. Although they’re essentially the same thing, Dysport never leaves me feeling stiff like Botox did. More important: It lasts 7–8 months (hence my forgetfulness). While results vary by age, muscle memory and wrinkle depth, I can assure you that Dysport is worth a shot. Tee hee. –Bets
