Botox and Dysport

What is the differences between Botox and Dysport:


  • Botox and Dysport are quite similar. Both come from botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic protein that is safe when used in small amounts. Although you can use Botox and Dysport for improving various medical conditions, their most popular use is to diminish wrinkles. 
  • Both injectables are considered noninvasive and work by temporarily relaxing facial muscles. This stops the muscles from contracting and ultimately smooths the appearance of wrinkles. The differences between the two are rooted in their trace proteins and how they’re manufactured. 
  • One of the main differences between Dysport and Botox is the areas in which they are approved for use. Dysport is primarily used for correcting glabellar lines, the frown lines between your eyebrows. Dysport is a great option for those who have moderate to severe frown lines. 
  • Botox, on the other hand, can be used to treat many different types of wrinkles, including crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and laugh lines. If you have mild to moderate wrinkles, Botox may be a better option for you.


Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site.

With topical anesthetic or icing the area, these injectable procedures can be virtually painless. Even without a numbing agent, pain is minimal, and you may only feel a little pinch.

Don’t lay down for at least 3 hours after receiving these injections. Don’t go into any saunas, hot tubs, or tanning booths for at least 4 hours. This helps to prevent bruising, because heat can raise your blood pressure. Otherwise, you can resume your regular activities right after getting Botox.

Yes both injectables are safe and FDA- Approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

The first “true” results will be noticeable within 24 to 48 hours – when you see a softening of wrinkles.In general, these injectables last 3-4 months.. It is also common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment.
