Botox and Dysport are two of the most popular anti-wrinkle treatments to stop wrinkles in their tracks. Both products effectively reduce wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines quickly and without pain. But every product works a little differently and everyone's body reacts differently to products. So we’ve curated this comparison to help you pick the right wrinkle-smoothing injection for you.
How Botox and Dysport Work
Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved neuromodulators that work by relaxing muscles and preventing them from contracting back. By relaxing the muscles, the skin on top becomes smoother. This temporarily reduces wrinkles for a good period of time.
Both injections contain a similar ingredient but vary in the amount of trace proteins they contain. Because everyone’s body is different, one treatment may be more effective than the other for some people.
There is no downtime for Botox and Dysport treatments and they’re painless with short treatment times. When performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Zimmerman, you can expect to see results right after your first treatment.
Botox and Dysport Differences
Botox and Dysport can be used to treat the same conditions. Usually, people ask for Botox injections to reduce or eliminate the following signs of aging.
- forehead lines
- fine lines
- wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- wrinkles between the eyebrows
But Dysport may be more effective in treating glabellar lines, the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows.
Generally, Dysport is used for correcting glabellar lines and for moderate to severe frown lines. Meanwhile, Botox can be used to treat crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and laugh lines as well as mild to moderate wrinkles.
Since Dysport is diluted, you’ll receive more units of Dysport than Botox. This is not to say that Botox is better. It just means that more Dysport units are necessary to achieve the same effect. But you’ll still spend the same amount of money to achieve similar results.
