BOTOX® is a popular injectable that has been used to help countless patients achieve their cosmetic goals, but this particular treatment does come with some disadvantages.
This is why thousands of patients have now turned to Dysport® injections to help them smooth and tone their skin for months at a time.
Purified Protein Solution
Both Dysport® and BOTOX® are made from a purified protein solution. This solution has been used for over 50 years to treat a variety of unique medical conditions ranging from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) to chronic migraines.
It was during these treatments that doctors began to realize their patients were also losing wrinkles near the injection sites. After further studies, this solution was approved for cosmetic use and the BOTOX® brand was born.
BOTOX® has remained one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, with millions of injections being carried out every single year. In 2009, Dysport® was approved by the FDA and BOTOX® finally had a major competitor. While these two treatments do have quite a few similarities, there are some differences that you should be aware of.
The Advantages of Dysport®
Even though Dysport® is relatively new in the United States, it has been a popular treatment in Europe for over a decade. The biggest difference between it and BOTOX® is the fact that Dysport® has smaller molecules that will spread out over a larger area.
In many cases, this diffusion can actually be quite useful. Practitioners often suggest Dysport® for larger treatment areas, such as the upper forehead and in between the eyebrows.
There are also some claims that Dysport® has a slightly quicker onset. Most patients will begin to notice the results within four to seven days depending on how their body reacts to the protein solution.
Schedule Your Appointment
Dysport® injections require just a single appointment. During your initial consultation, you will speak with a specialist about any medical conditions that could affect the treatment.
For example, those who have had surgery near the injection sites might need to explore different treatment options.
If it is determined that you are a good candidate, then you can finally say goodbye to those unsightly wrinkles that give away your age.
