The New Botox
"There's a new kid on the block," says plastic surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon. "Botox now has a competitor, and I think it's a healthy, friendly competition. Dysport is basically the same product, botulinum toxin A, which blocks the transmission of nerves. It prevents you from being able to contract your muscles, and in turn, stops wrinkles. They claim that [Dysport] is less painful to use, and its onset is quicker."

Dr. Ordon says that both Dysport and Botox are efficient products, and people can respond differently to each, so you should consult with your doctor.

Natural Botox?
According to nutritionist Alyse Levine, brussels sprouts are the food version of Botox. They are loaded with vitamin C, which is necessary for collagen production and can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
