If you’ve ever dipped into the world of non-surgical procedures, then you’ve most likely heard about Botox. However, Dysport has recently entered the cosmetic realm and is proving to be a fierce competitor. We are significantly educated on both of these neuromodulators and will perform each procedure based on our expert testimony for each client requesting it within our office.
Dysport and Botox are both Botulinum Type A injections, and their main purpose is to relax muscles in your face. They have a variety of applications including migraines, excessive sweating, and psoriasis but are mainly administered around the face.
Botox – An Oldie but a Goodie
If a refreshed, natural look is what you’re searching for, Botox is a great option that goes nearly undetectable. Because wrinkles are most of the time caused by overactive muscles, Botox relaxes them and reduces lines amid your face. It is FDA approved and the most common procedure performed in the United States.
Although Botox can be used to treat prevailing lines, it can also be beneficial in preventing new ones from appearing. It is most frequently introduced to address frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet but can also be used in other areas including lips, lower face, and downturned smiles.
Expert Physicians state that it’s never too early to begin Botox injection because they can be used as a preventative tactic. Botox exhibits a noticeable difference typically from 4 – 5 days up to 2 weeks after the initial shot. Some patients start in their early 20s as preemptive measures; it’s contingent on personal inclination.
Dysport – A Worthy Competitor
Dysport, like Botox, is an FDA approved prescription injection sought after for the treatment of severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. It is similarly successful to Botox but has far less recognition. Within 5 – 7 days, a foreseeable transformation will be apparent after the Dysport injection and can maintain effects from 4 to 6 months up to one year.
Because Dysport has less of a protein load in comparison to Botox, the likelihood of antibodies forming to destroy the protein is lessened. Dysport has a longer lasting effect because it is more widespread within the skin over areas like the forehead and armpits. Because fewer injections of Dysport will be needed, discomfort, swelling, and bruising will still be evident but are not as prone to occur.
