While both Botox and Dysport are non-invasive skin treatment options that can be used to prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles in adults, getting to know the differences between these two neuromodulators will help you determine which treatment option will work best for your specific wants and needs. Before choosing either Botox or Dysport, it is also a good idea to consult with a specialist like the ones from Bottle Service to ensure that all of your questions are answered thoroughly.
Differences Between Botox and Dysport
Both Botox and Dysport are made up of the same primary active ingredient—Botulinum Toxin—which prevents muscular contractions, making it the ideal solution for a wide variety of different medical functions like treating facial wrinkles. While neither type of neuromodulator can get rid of existing wrinkles forever, they can help relax the muscles, making the skin smoother and wrinkles less noticeable.
Even though Dysport and Botox are similar in both content and applications, it is important to keep in mind that the trace protein amounts will vary between the two treatments. This means that one treatment may end up being more effective for some people than for others.
What is Botox?
As the very first product that was ever approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines and crow’s feet, Botox is a non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment that can help temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles on the brow or near the eyes with only a few injections. By directly injecting the Botox into the facial muscles that are causing the lines and wrinkles, the Botox is able to block nerve signals in that region of the face, reducing the muscle’s ability to contract and form wrinkles. In most cases, Botox treatments only take about 10 minutes and require little to no downtime after the injections.
What is Dysport?
Similar to Botox, Dysport is a non-invasive injection that uses Botulinum Toxin type A to target and paralyze the movement of certain muscles in the face in order to prevent glabellar wrinkles and fine lines from forming. Over time, Dysport can also help reduce the appearance of glabellar lines or frown lines in the area around the eyebrows, as well as other facial lines and wrinkles; however, it is important to note that Dysport is only a good treatment option for people who have either moderate or severe cases of glabella wrinkles and is not recommended for people with mild glabella lines. Dysport injections require little to no downtime after the treatment has been administered. Contact Bottle Service for a complementary consultation to find out if you are a good candidate for Dysport injections.
