Synergy Plastic Surgery: Mahlon Kerr, MD, FACS

BOTOX® Cosmetic Alternative Gaining Ground

Dr. Mahlon Kerr, who offers many non-surgical treatments in the Austin area like BOTOX® Cosmetic, responds to a recent study regarding the effectiveness of BOTOX to treat crow’s feet, by explaining that he has seen beautiful results with BOTOX Cosmetic.

Round Rock, Texas (July 2011) – Dr. Mahlon Kerr of Synergy Plastic Surgery, a practice in the Austin area offering BOTOX® Cosmetic, comments on a recent study in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery claiming that for some patients, Dysport® may be more effective at treating crow’s feet. According to that study, more patients chose Dysport over BOTOX Cosmetic for wrinkle improvement, with a two-to-one preference; however, in Dr. Kerr’s experience, he says that while Dysport is an effective treatment for fine lines that appear around the eyes, BOTOX Cosmetic is a tried and tested, and has provided his patients with positive, beautiful results.

“The recent study comparing the effectiveness of BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport is an interesting and helpful method of understanding the distinctions between the two facial rejuvenation treatments,” says Dr. Kerr. “While I recognize that Dysport is an effective way to treat the wrinkles known as crow’s feet, I have found that BOTOX is more effective in general for other areas, such as the frown lines, as well as crow’s feet. However, it is important to remember that these facial rejuvenation treatments are not interchangeable, and are different.”

Dr. Kerr says that more of his patients are interested in non-surgical alternatives to a traditional facelift at his Austin area plastic surgery practice, and often have questions concerning which treatment is the better option.

“I offer many different non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments as well as surgical procedures,” notes Dr. Kerr. “This variety allows me to customize a treatment plan for each patient’s concerns and cosmetic goals. For my patients at my Austin area practice, facelift, brow lift, and other facial plastic surgery procedures provide a lasting solution. In contrast, while BOTOX Cosmetic and other non-surgical treatments can be effective, their benefits are temporary. However, they do offer an excellent way to postpone plastic surgery for patients who are not yet ready for that option.”

Known for his skills in tailoring each treatment plan for the individual’s needs, Dr. Kerr says he always makes the time to stay updated with the latest studies and medical research impacting his field. “By reading medical literature regularly, I can provide my patients with the most effective treatments available,” adds Dr. Kerr. “It’s important to understand that the results of one study alone are not necessarily definitive, which is why I take the time to review all the relevant ones.”
