Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is a purified form of the toxin that has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic and medical use. Botox is made of a highly purified form of the botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscles it’s injected into.

Botox works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that sends signals from the nerves to the muscles. When Botox is injected into specific muscles, it blocks the signals from the nerves, causing the muscles to relax and reducing their activity. This leads to a temporary reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and prevents the formation of new ones.

Botox is commonly used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Botox injections are quick and relatively painless, and the effects can last up to four months. It is a safe and effective way to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without surgery. We offer personalized Botox treatments to ensure smooth, natural-looking results


Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin injection used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Like Botox, Dysport is a purified form of the botulinum toxin that works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles it’s injected into. However, Dysport is made from a slightly different formulation of the botulinum toxin compared to Botox.

Dysport is injected into the muscles using a very fine needle, targeting specific areas, such as the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Once injected, the active ingredient in Dysport, botulinum toxin type A, blocks the release of acetylcholine to prevent the muscles from contracting, thus allowing them to relax and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

The effects of Dysport can last for up to four months, and the treatment is generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects. At Renew Med Spa, our expert team of medical professionals will customize your Dysport treatment to target your specific concerns and help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
