One of the most notable differences between Dysport and Botox is that Dysport tends to have faster results. Most results are seen within 3 days with Dysport, compared to Botox, which normally takes 7 to 10 days to show results. Treatment for glabellar lines is traditionally given in approximately 50 to 60 units at 5 injection sites surrounding the area between the eyebrows. Botox injections have a composite effect, so the patient can maintain their results with fewer injections over time.
Since a patient can start their Botox treatments on time, it is much easier for the body to get used to the level of neurotoxin in the skin, which slows the formation of wrinkles, even if the patient misses a reapplication session. Both Botox and Dysport have the ability to treat common areas of concern, such as the forehead and forehead, the outer part of the eyes (crow's feet), the mouth, the jaw, and the lines between the eyebrows, to name a few. Dysport (abobotulinum toxin A) is manufactured by Galderma, which also produces well-known dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Sculptra. In the case of clinics that price products per unit, you will find that the price per unit of Dysport is usually much lower than the price per unit of Botox, but to obtain a similar treatment result, the final cost may be approximately the same.
While the body can recover from repeated sun damage with the right products, sun damage also affects Dysport treatments. If you have a lot of serious wrinkles, such as lines on your forehead, around the treatment area, your Dysport treatment may last longer than usual. Those who exercise a lot or know that they have a fast metabolism may notice that the results wear off faster. Because the type of botulinum toxin used in Dysport is stronger, it's an excellent cosmetic treatment for limiting muscle movement and muscle contraction at that specific site of injection.
On the other hand, Dysport treatments are more suitable for patients who have moderate to severe wrinkles on their face, especially if they have been caused by age. Botox and Dysport are designed for use in adults who have moderate to severe facial lines and are in good health. Both Dysport and Botox use botulinum toxin to treat wrinkles, but it's the differences in the type of botulinum toxin that can make one last longer than the other. Both Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators or neurotoxins (forms of botulinum toxin type A) that have been approved by the FDA to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
The only exception when it comes to side effects is that Dysport has a higher risk of spreading to unwanted muscles. Depending on the exact Dysport units specified by your dermatologist, the results may last longer compared to a cosmetic treatment with Botox. When it comes to cosmetic treatments like Botox and Dysport, many people wonder which one lasts longer. While both treatments are effective in reducing wrinkles and fine lines on your face, there are some key differences between them that can affect how long they last.
In this article we will discuss how long each treatment lasts and what factors can affect their longevity.
