Filler Evolence got approved by the FDA as lasting 12 months! I always liked it. It causes less bruises and swelling than Radiesse or Restylane. However it gives less volume per syringe, cost is an issue. However, for those that rather spend more money and have no swelling/bruising it is worth it.

Medicis corporation announced approval of Dysport. This is a new product directly competing with Botox. As a plastic surgeon I sincerely welcome addition of this new product. For years Botox was the only choice for temporary active wrinkle reduction. Healthy competition s always a good thing! However, I am not sure how soon I will feel comfortable recommending this new product to my patients. There is just not enough USA experience. Stay tuned! In the meantime this should help our patients by lowering prices of Botox!
