- Posted on: Apr 3 2016
- Both are the same product, botulinum toxin A a derived protein that works by relaxing targeted muscles. that are FDA approved (Botox in 2002, Dysport in 2009) Very similar products but there are some slight differences.
- Botox has been around longer and is highly popular
- Research suggests that Dysport may be faster-acting and longer-lasting.
- Dosages differ for both
- Dysport may also spread farther from the injection site, allowing a broader area of small wrinkles (such as the “crow’s feet”) to be treated with fewer injections.
- Dysport contains less protein than Botox so the body breaks it down more slowly
- Dysport works faster than Botox (about one to two days faster, so if you have a special event to attend, this is something to consider
- If you have become resistant to Botox after repeated treatments, you may respond to Dysport
- Dysport more cost-efficient
