Dysport or Botox? What’s the Difference?

  • 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
  • Try both and see which works best for you
