Botox or Dysport?

By now everyone has heard of Botox and what it’s used for in the cosmetic industry.

In April of 2009 a new product called Dysport was approved by the FDA and is now
marketed by the same company who makes Restylane.

Although Dysport is new here in North America it has been used in Europe for a long time.
People ask a lot of questions and want to know the difference between the two.

Overall Botox and Dysport are very similar. Both are a type of toxin called botulinum type A
which is used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines on the forehead etc.

Dysport is a smaller-sized molecule so the units are measured a bit differently than Botox.
Dysport is a bit cheaper and supposedly gives results a bit faster, but maybe only by a day or two.

Both have been declared as safe and either one must be injected about every 3 -4 months.
As far as preference is concerned, it really depends on the injector which product they have
more experience with and which product they prefer to work with, but as far as results and
side effects are concerned, both are very similar and in the end Dysport may not be a whole
lot cheaper.
