What are Neurotoxins?

These treatments are commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, such as forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. They can also be used to treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraines, and muscle spasms. Botox, the most well-known neurotoxin, is derived from botulinum toxin type A. Dysport, another popular option, also contains botulinum toxin type A but has a slightly different formulation.

Exploring Neurotoxin Treatments

Treatment Options


BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medicine injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. BOTOX is FDA-approved to treat chronic migraines and excessive underarm sweating. It can alleviate maladies associated with temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and relax the Platysmal bands in the neck.

For excessive sweating, Botox functions differently by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter responsible for stimulating sweat gland activity. This leads to drier underarms and eliminates sweat stains on clothing. Moreover, Botox effectively treats nighttime teeth grinding by relaxing the muscles responsible for involuntary jaw movements. At Signature Aesthetics, our Botox specialists tailor the treatment to suit your specific needs, administering the optimal amount of Botox to achieve the desired results.


Dysport, an FDA-approved neuromodulator containing abobotulinumtoxinA, is designed to address moderate to severe glabellar lines, commonly called frown lines or '11' lines between the eyebrows. By temporarily relaxing the underlying facial muscles, Dysport effectively diminishes these lines, creating a smoother skin appearance even during facial expressions. Its specialized formula, comprising smaller protein molecules, offers a thinner consistency and superb spreadability. Patients often notice significant enhancements within two to three days of receiving treatment.

What is the difference between Dysport and Botox?

The primary distinction between Dysport and Botox lies in their consistency. Although both contain botulinum toxin, Dysport is not administered if are allergic to cow’s milk protein.
