For a long time, when someone wanted to treat their dynamic wrinkles, they would first consider BOTOX®. This is a popular injectable used to relax the muscles in the face in order to prevent dynamic wrinkles. However, it is not the only injectable solution for those who want to treat their dynamic wrinkles. Dysport® has recently grown popular as an effective alternative to BOTOX®.
Both options are similar in the sense that they both have the same active ingredient. Likewise, both of them have proved to be quite effective in treating wrinkles on the face. However, there are some differences between the two worth considering. Looking at these differences can help you make a decision when deciding between these two treatments.
For example, the molecules present in Dysport® are smaller than those of its competitor. This means it will spread over areas more easily, making it more effective for treating larger areas such as the upper forehead. Should you decide during your consultation that you would like to receive injections in a larger area, Dysport® may be more beneficial.
Lastly, many patients and providers prefer Dysport® because it has fewer ingredients than BOTOX®. While both injectables provide nearly the same results, patients who choose Dysport® are far less likely to experience an allergic reaction. This is one of the biggest reasons it has grown so popular in recent years.
Despite their differences, Dysport® still provides the same advantages that come with its competitor. As it relaxes the muscles in the treated areas, it reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that have formed over time due to drastic facial expressions. At the same time, it helps to prevent the formation of new ones. This injectable is also popular for its ease and convenience, as patients typically need only one injection in the areas they would like to treat, and it requires no downtime. Treatment time is also quick. After undergoing this lunchtime procedure, you can go back to your daily routine. As with any cosmetic procedure, good candidates include those who are in good general health and have reasonable expectations.
