Botox Cosmetic Vs. Dysport

Botox treatments have become one of the most popular anti aging treatment that helps both men and women to rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance in a successful manner. However, for the first time ever, another wrinkle treatment product Dysport has joined Botox in the fight against wrinkles. Although both these treatments are quite similar in many ways, they do have some key differences between them. Thus, taking a look at both the similarities and differences in these treatments can prove to be beneficial in helping you decide which anti wrinkle therapy would suit your needs and requirements in an ideal manner.

Similarities between Botox and Dysport Treatments

  • Both Botox and Dysport are FDA approved specifically for treating facial wrinkles or fine lines.
  • One of the most common features of Botox and Dysport treatment is the fact that the main active ingredient used in both these treatments is a refined form of botulinum toxin type A. This toxin works by paralyzing the muscles that can create the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes, facial wrinkles on the forehead and creases near the corners of the mouth.
  • Unlike dermal fillers, both Botox and Dysport injections are injected into the facial muscles underneath the surface of the skin
  • Side effects of Botox and Dysport treatments are similar and may include temporary headache, numbness, swelling, light bruising or redness in the area that has been treated. However, using an ice pack before and after the treatment can prove to be beneficial in helping relieve these side effects to a great extent.

Differences between Botox and Dysport Treatments

  • The fact that Dysport treatment delivers faster results (up to two days) when compared to Botox and is likely to fade wrinkles within 24 hours after receiving Dysport treatment, this anti ageing treatment proves to be a perfect choice for all those people who are looking for a quick fix before a big event.
  • Dysport treatment can also be an effective alternative for all those patients who have become immune or resist Botox after repeated treatments.
  • Studies have also shown that Dysport injections last longer for up to six months or a year when compared to Botox injections that last for about three to four months.
  • The fact that Dysport treatment uses fewer antibodies, this anti aging treatment has lesser allergic reactions when compared to equal treatments of Botox.
  • There are differences in the cost of both these anti wrinkle treatments. While that cost of Botox is usually between $300- $450 ranges, the cost of Dysport has been reported to be more than $200- 300 ranges. Thus, while the price range of Dysport is less, more is required to achieve the same effects delivered by Botox.

The fact that both these wrinkles relaxing treatments are quite similar in many ways, consulting a cosmetic provider prior choosing either Botox or Dysport treatment can prove to be highly beneficial in helping you opt for the right anti aging treatment in a successful manner.
