BOTOX® and Dysport®: Which One Is Best For Me?

Wondering what the difference is between BOTOX® and Dysport® and which one to choose to get smoother skin on your face?  Here’s a quick introduction to both treatments that might help you decide.

BOTOX® and Dysport® are both derived from the same botulinum toxin.  Both are also FDA-approved to treat certain wrinkles (Crow’s feet and frown lines for BOTOX®; Forehead and frown lines for Dysport®).  And both work in the same manner—by making the muscles that cause the wrinkles to relax.

So, where do they differ?  It’s in the administration of the medication.  While both are injected into the muscles, Dysport® has a farther spread than BOTOX®.  What that means is that the distance between injection sites is farther in Dysport® than it is with BOTOX®.  That feature of Dysport® leads to less injections per treatment.

Is that an advantage over BOTOX®? Not necessarily.  It just means that you have more than one option when it comes to getting smoother skin in Boca Raton.  Book an appointment with your treating physician who will help you make an informed decision in choosing either BOTOX® or Dysport® in Boca Raton.syringe-bottle-photo-Brian-Hoskins-sxc-hu-e1340695905668
