When it comes down to BOTOX® vs Dysport®, what is the best treatment for dynamic wrinkles? To answer this question, one needs to look at what both of these products have in common and what it is that separates them. Both of these products address dynamic wrinkles by reducing the ability of the muscles that we have in our face to produce expressions. As a result, the wrinkles that these muscles create disappear.
BOTOX® and Dysport® do have some subtle differences. They are produced and distributed by different companies. Dysport® has been shown to have a quicker reaction time when it comes to addressing crow’s feet. However, BOTOX® is the only drug that has been approved by the FDA to treat crow’s feet. Additionally, BOTOX® is stronger than Dysport®. In fact, just 20 units of BOTOX® provides the same strength that 50 units of Dysport® provides.
BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA for more than a decade. Around the world, this injectable has been used by millions of people and an overwhelmingly large majority of them have been pleased with the results. Cosmetic professionals around the world understand how to use BOTOX® and have extensive experience with it. This means that they are able to provide their customers with consistent results every time.
Dysport® is newer to the market. This does not mean that it is less safe or less effective. It simply means that it does not have the name recognition or the years of patient use to back it up. That being said, more and more cosmetic professionals and patients are turning to Dysport®.
BOTOX® has less drift after injection. As a result, it provides more accurate results, especially when used on a small area. Conversely, Dysport® has more drift, but it provides better results on a larger area. Dysport® will produce results faster, but BOTOX® has been shown to provide a longer effect.
BOTOX® is formulated to include accessory proteins. These proteins can trigger antibodies. As a result, over time, some people become immune to BOTOX®. Dysport® also has these accessory proteins, only in a smaller amount. This minimizes the chance of a person developing a resistance to it.
