Both are comprised of the same ingredient, Botulinum A, used to prevent wrinkles in adults by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin. Once the muscles relax, the skin becomes smoother. Botox is arguably better known than Dysport, but Dysport received its FDA approval in 2009 so it is also a proven and effective neurotoxin product.
Dysport is indicated for temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, Botox on another hand has 3 indications for horizontal forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet, although both brands are commonly used on multiple facial and off face areas “on and off label”.
Results from both Dysport and Botox last 3 – 5 months on average, depending on the client’s age, the severity of the lines or wrinkles, and the number of units injected. Our highly trained and certified providers will help you make an informed decision on which neurotoxin is right for you.
