Botox vs. Dysport: The Similarities and Differences

If you’re looking for the best cosmetic treatment to smooth out your facial wrinkles or fine lines, you may want to consider Botox or Dysport. Both products are perfectly safe and are approved by the Food and Drug Administration. But, which one would be best for you?

First, a little information…

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic treatment that uses a purified form of botulinum toxin. It is injected into targeted areas to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, forehead creases and frown lines. It is not surgery and does not require general anesthesia. Botox can also help with migraines, sweating and muscle spasms.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is also a cosmetic procedure that uses a purified form of botulinum toxin. While it is used today to treat wrinkles and fine lines, it was originally developed to treat muscle spasms and movement disorders. The main difference between Dysport and Botox is that Dysport is delivered in lower concentrations, which could result in fewer potential side effects.

Other Similarities

Both Botox and Dysport are safe procedures that are pain-free and pose very few risks. While there may be a bit of swelling or redness following treatments, these side effects are generally short-lived. Both treatments are quite affordable and only take about 30 minutes per session.
