Dr. Pourkesali specializes in Botox/Dysport injection for many areas in aging face to reduce the effects that leads to formation of wrinkles and loss of collagen. There is a misconception that Botox is a toxin and can have negative results for the body. It is true that it is a toxin and is derived from bacteria, but it is sterilized, purified and diluted. In reality many medications that help us to live a normal life are “safe and useful” poisons. For example Purple foxglove is a poison that is used as a heart medication (digitalis); Curare is used on poison darts to paralyze people but also used to relax muscles during anesthesia; Willow bark is the precursor to Aspirin which can cause fatal bleeding but is also useful for preventing or minimizing the effects of heart attacks.
Botox/Dysport is used for both medical conditions like for spastic eyelids as well as for cosmetic treatments. At the doses that are used for cosmetic therapy, Botox/Dysport is very safe.
