Here’s the 101 on Anti-Wrinkle Injections

So we’ve all heard of Botox and the wonders that it works!  More recently though Dysport has been introduced to the injectable market.  Dysport received FDA approval in the spring of ’09, but has been used in Europe for years.  Both products are made from the same botulinum toxin type A and are injected directly into the muscle to treat deep lines and wrinkles.  Results for both products are typically seen after about 10 days and last about 3-4 months, although some patients report that their Dysport “kicks in” faster than Botox.

So which product should you use?  Well, do you prefer Coke or Pepsi?  I use both products daily and get great results.  If you are finding that your Botox isn’t lasting as long or not taking as well, then Dysport may be a great option.
