Dysport verses Botox

WHAT IS DYSPORT?
Dysport is an injectable made from the same neurotoxin as Botox. Like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport received the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a wrinkle treatment. While similar to Botox, some research suggests that Dysport may be faster-acting than Botox. It also spreads farther from the injection site, thus allowing a broader area of small wrinkles to be treated with fewer injections.
DOES IT HURT TO GET INJECTED WITH DYSPORT?Most people find the injections almost painless, so a local anesthetic is not normally needed. If concerned however, you can request an anesthetic (numbing) cream or ice pack prior to treatment.The treatment session typically lasts less than five minutes with full effect taking several days as the muscles gradually relax.

WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO MAKE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS?

Although the results are visible, a treatment with Dysport will not radically change your facial appearance or make you appear as if you’ve “had work done.” Our Nurse Practitioner will work with your goals to ensure a natural, youthful appearance.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE THE EFFECTS? HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

BOTOX® Cosmetic can take seven to ten days for treatment to set in, and visible results have been shown to last up to four months. Personal results will vary, so speak with the Nurse Practitioner about what to expect.  Dysport has a quicker onset, and results can be seen as soon as 24-48 hours. This may be better suited for those needing a more immediate outcome, like a special occasion. The length of results are approximately the same for Dysport and BOTOX® Cosmetic. Both Botox and Dysport will last up to four months.
