There’s no doubt you’re familiar with everyone’s favorite wrinkle-fix, Botox, but have you heard of Dysport? Though they’re both used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, there’s a few differences in the products. Dysport allows clients to retain a more natural and refreshed look— no “frozen face” that can sometimes happen with other injectables. Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the brows by limiting certain muscle activity. By reducing the repeated muscle contractions with Dysport, the treatment is actually preventative— something you can consider even if you are younger. In addition, Dysport actually starts very fast, you’ll start seeing results as early as three days.
So who is Dysport right for? Anyone who wants to treat fine lines, wrinkles and especially if you want to take preventative measures altogether. The treatment takes about 20 minutes and there’s very minimal (if any!) downtime, meaning you can get back to your day sooner.
Both of these products use the same type of ingredient and are injectables. They are often used for muscle spasms to treat medical issues, but they’ve been found to help with the aging process and wrinkles as well.
Within these two different branded products are proteins. The comparison between them has to do with the specific proteins and how many of them there are in the formulas.
A lot of it comes down to personal preference- think Pepsi vs. Coke! If you’ve tried Botox in the past and thought it wasn’t for you, Dysport is a great option that may be better suited to your individual anatomy and lifestyle.
