Q & A: Alternative to BOTOX is HERE! Dr. Finger: Savannah, Ga.

Attention Savannah, Hilton Head, Bluffton and Statesboro:

We now have an alternative to Botox. It is a product called Dysport, made by Medicis, the makers of Restylane. It is basically a botulinum product that relaxes muscles causing wrinkles such as the frown lines, the forehead furrows, and “crow’s feet.” Time and studies will reveal its longevity compared to Botox. My early experience reflects no stinging from the medication, which is impressive. Also, competition historically leads to lower prices.
