What Makes Botox® Different From Dysport®?

Different people show different signs of getting older. You might notice that your wrinkles only show up in certain lighting or when you look at them from a certain angle. You might be able to see your frown lines in photos, or you might be able to see the lines around your eyes better in the rearview mirror.

We all have to deal with wrinkles. We can’t stop time or turn back the effects of aging, but injectables can help you look younger again. Injectables can help get rid of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles at the Bergen County Botox in Bergen County, New Jersey.

Botox® is the most well-known injectable, but it’s not the only one. Dysport® is becoming well-known for how well it works to smooth out frown lines. Here, we’ll talk about what they have in common and what makes them different, so you can decide which one is best for you.

Similar in Nature

Botox and Dysport are quite similar. Both are made from botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxic protein that is safe in small doses. Botox and Dysport can be used to treat a number of medical conditions, but their most common use is to get rid of wrinkles.

Both injectables are thought to be noninvasive and work by temporarily relaxing facial muscles. This keeps the muscles from tightening, which makes wrinkles look less noticeable. The two are different because of their trace proteins and the way they are made.

What Sets Them Apart

One of the biggest differences between Botox and Dysport is where they can be used. Dysport is mostly used to fix glabellar lines, which are the lines between your eyebrows that show when you frown. People with moderate to severe frown lines can benefit from Dysport.

Botox, on the other hand, can be used to treat crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and laugh lines, among other types of wrinkles. Botox may be a better choice for you if you have mild to moderate wrinkles.

Some people saw results from Dysport faster, with fewer wrinkles in just two or three days. Botox’s effects usually show up after about a week, but both injectables work best after about two weeks. When you look at how long the results last, both Dysport and Botox last about 3 to 4 months.

One unit of Botox is about three times as strong as one unit of Dysport. This doesn’t mean that Botox works better; it just means that you need more Dysport to get the same effect. As a trade-off, the price of a Dysport unit is less than that of a Botox unit, so you’ll spend about the same amount of money to get similar results.

Results Vary

Everyone has a different set of genes and organs. Like many other products and services, the results are different for each person. If you’ve already tried Botox and want to try something new, Dysport is a great option that may give you results faster.
