Top NYC Plastic Facial Surgeon Corroborates Recent Study Showing Dysport as Better Alternative Than Botox for Treatment of Crow's Feet

MANHATTAN, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 29, 2011) - Patients now have a faster, more effective wrinkle correction option for "nonsurgical facial rejuvenation." NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Ramtin Kassir offers an alternative to Botox with several advantages.

A new research study about crow's feet, the fine lines that form around the eyes, suggest that Dysport is better. Researchers from the Maas Clinic in San Francisco and the University of California San Francisco conducted a study to try to determine which of these two botulism products has a superior effect on reducing crow's feet.

The results show 67 percent of all the patients preferred the Dysport side of their face compared to the Botox. "When my patients need to soften the lines around their eyes (crow's feet), I prefer to use Dysport rather than Botox," said Dr. Ramtin Kassir, the leading provider of Dysport in NJ. It "kicks in faster" and lasts longer on average.

Dr. Kassir has been working with Dysport overseas since 2006. Dysport was approved by the FDA in the United States in 2009 as another botulinum-derived medication that has quickly risen to be Botox's biggest competitor.

"Our own research study comparing Botox and Dysport has been submitted for publication. The results support the most recent study from San Francisco and will be of interest to both physicians and patients, since Botox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States."
