When choosing a neuromodulator, it can be difficult to determine if Dysport or Botox is the right solution. Both options are non-invasive, proven, and effective treatments for facial wrinkle reduction; however, there are several differences to consider when looking at the speed of results and overall duration. If you are wondering if Dysport lasts longer than Botox, the team from Bottle Service can help you select the best treatment option for your unique needs.

Dysport vs Botox
Some of the things to take into consideration when comparing Dysport and Botox include:
Even though Dysport and Botox are both derived from botulinum, they feature a different level of dilution. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, meaning that patients will often need more treatments to obtain the same results. This, however, does not mean that Botox is objectively more effective, it just means that fewer sessions are required.
Dysport contains fewer molecules than Botox, allowing it to spread faster across the treated area. As a result, Dysport is often used to treat larger areas and is not as effective for smaller areas that require precise results. This is an advantage for some treatment areas, but not for others. Consult the experts at Bottle Service to determine which option is ideal for your needs.
Due to the faster diffusion speed, Dysport often takes 24-48 hours to display visible results. Botox, on the other hand, can take up to one week to show results. While Dysport and Botox show results at different rates, both options require little to no recovery time after the procedure is completed.
Faster diffusion speed is not always a benefit, as Dysport results last for about 3-4 months while Botox results last for 3-6 months. Both treatments feature the same minimum duration, but Botox has the potential to last up to 50% longer.
Which Option Lasts Longer?
Dysport acts faster but does not last as long when compared to Botox. As a result, each treatment is ideal for different areas and needs. Dysport is often less expensive than Botox but, due to the increased frequency of treatments, the costs typically balance out. In some cases, both Dysport and Botox can be used simultaneously for certain treatments.
