Botox® is no longer the only wrinkle eraser available to our clients. Dysport, made by the makers of Restylane®, is another injectable that smoothes crow’s feet, forehead lines and vertical frown lines using a variation of the active ingredient in Botox. Botox is more versatile for targeting a specific wrinkle or line, while Dysport is more effective at treating larger areas
While both products are made from botulinum toxin type A, the molecule in Dysport is smaller and the injection is administered at a deeper level. The smaller molecule creates a smoother transition from the treated area to the rest of the face giving a more natural look.
As the injections are deeper, the product spreads twice as far as Botox making it a better choice for larger areas. The greater diffusion is also beneficial in treating larger or stronger muscles as those found in men.
Dysport has been found to act faster than Botox, with most patients noticing their early results in 2 to 5 days. Botox typically takes between 4 to 7 days to act. In both cases the final result is clearly evident within 2 weeks. This is beneficial for those with an unexpected important event or meeting on the horizon.
