Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
A total of 29 subjects was recruited at Brazilian Center For Studies in Dermatology, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The anticipated drop out rate is 10%. Participants were their own control, because on one side of frontal region they have received 5U of botulinum toxin - Dysport and on other side 4U of botulinum toxin - Botox;

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment

13 volunteers were excluded; Screen failure: Iodine allergy = 2; Minor´s Test failure = 6 Mild wrinkles = 3 Inclusion criteria failure = 2

Minor’s test allows the visualization of the area covered by the effects of botulinum toxin on sweat glands also known as action halos.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The field of muscular effects of the studied toxins was objectively measured by EMG and it is not very precise. However, there is no more precise objective measurement to currently evaluate the field effects in muscles than EMG.
