Dysport and Botox are the same drug molecule made by different companies. They are very similar in their overall effects. Like Coke versus Pepsi you may like one over the other but both sodas are used for the same desires. The biggest differences our patients find are that Dysport offers a softer and more natural control of the forehead muscles. Dysport patients say that they don’t get that super tight hold, but a more relaxed tone of their muscles between their eyebrows and in their forehead. They are pleased that Dysport can last longer than Botox, and average of 4 months versus 3 and its effects kick in a fewdays sooner. So if you have forgotten to get your wrinkle fix for an important party or event, Dysport is your key to being ready for your big night out. There are many exciting uses for Dysport to soften various aspect of the face from the brow down to the neck.
Botox is equally good. Botox offer a very powerful hold of the muscles with a bit more precision, providing the same brow lift, reduction in the lines between the eye brows, the horizontal forehead lines and the crows feet lines on the outside corners of the eyes as Dysport.
