Should I Use Botox or Dysport?

Are you ready to look younger and more vibrant? One way of achieving the desired look is by getting rid of the fine wrinkles, folds and creases that show up on our faces as we age. But with so many cosmetic choices out there, what’s a person to do?

Botox Vs. Dysport

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that as of 2008, the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States was Botox. It is used by everyone from Hollywood stars to soccer moms, and its popularity continues to this day.

However, Dysport is gaining ground as a procedure to eliminate fine wrinkles and lines caused by age and sun exposure. Both treatments use botulinum toxin Type A to relax the muscles that help form wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.

When Speed Is Essential

Some folks swear by Botox simply because it has been around longer. However, recent comparisons have shown Dysport to have one up on Botox when it comes to speedy results.

Dysport usually goes to work within 24 hours of injection, whereas Botox can take 48 to 72 hours to create a wrinkle-free zone. That means Dysport may be a better choice for people who need to lose the smile lines before a quickly approaching social engagement.

Last Longer?

In the Botox Vs. Dysport battle, Dysport also comes out ahead when it comes to lasting longer. Botox results typically last 3 months, whereas Dysport has been shown to last upwards of six months to a year.

Dysport does show an increased likelihood of antibody formation, which occurs when the body recognizes the injection ingredients as foreign bodies and creates antibodies to fight them.
