What are The Differences Between Botox and Dysport?

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are proven to treat and stop fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Most people know that these neuromodulating treatments can help with ruffles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow's feet). 

They can also treat neck bands, chin dimples, excessive sweating, and slim the jawline. This rapid and painless procedure is usually done in 10–15 minutes. 

Today, Spa Medica is here to help and guide you on how Botox & Dysport can be different yet still effective. Check out this blog post for more details!

How Botox and Dysport Work

Dysport and Botox are made to make wrinkles and frown lines less noticeable. They work by temporarily stopping the muscles at the injection site from moving. Even though they are both types of botulinum toxins, their non-toxic protein content is different because of how they were made.

Most people can see the effects of Botox after 3 to 5 days, but it usually takes 1 to 2 days to see a difference with Dysport. Most doctors and experts suggest having Dysport over Botox if you have an event to attend. That’s because about the same time goes by between the two brands.

Besides, most of the time, Dysport injections are spread over a wider area. Botox may be easier to control in some places because it spreads out less, but both can function in all treatment areas.

Dysport has cow's milk protein, so people allergic to cow's milk should not use it. So if you’re looking for a safer and all-approved treatment, Botox is the one. It has been studied a lot and is highly safe.

At Spa Medica Aesthetic, our expert injectors have been trained for a long time to give natural-looking results that make our clients look refreshed and renewed. Let's look further if Dysport and Botox are safe below.Is Dysport and Botox Recommended?

If you've never had Dysport or Botox, you might be worried about their safety. Even though Botox has been around much longer than Dysport, the FDA has approved both of them, and millions of people have used them.

Who Does it Better?

Glabella is the name for the space between the eyebrows. Dysport is known to be especially good at treating deep lines and wrinkles in this area. 

However, Dysport may be less expensive if this is your primary concern. On the other sides, Botox can fix problems you have in other parts of your face, like the forehead, eyes, and mouth.

How Long Do The Effects Last?

Botox and Dysport are used similarly and can cause minor pain, discomfort, or numbness. One way they are different is that the effects of Dysport show up quickly after treatment and can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Botox results may take a little longer and can last between 3 and 4 months.

Since Dysport spreads out more than Botox, it can be better at making subtle changes over a larger area. In some cases, it may be possible to get more natural results, but this depends greatly on the situation. 

Since both products are used in different ways, you should choose a practitioner with a lot of experience with the one you choose. Take note that with Dysport, you can see the results within the next three days after treatment. 

Also, Dysport is a smaller molecule and may lock into the muscle faster than Botox. The faster results of the Dysport could be helpful if you have an event coming up in a few days and want to look different by then.

Therefore it's always best to plan and give each choice time to settle and show its full effect fully.

Glabellar Lines

The lines between your brows are called glabellar lines or "the elevens." When you wrinkle your brows, you can see these lines. If caught, they can be smoothed out quickly with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. 

Nose lines/Bunny lines

Your nose may get lines that look like bunny ears when you laugh or smile. These lines can be smoothed out with a few Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin units, making the skin look better.

Excessive Sweating

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are suitable injectable treatments for excessive sweating. They stop the sweat glands from making too much sweat by blocking the nerve signal that makes you sweat. 

Clinical studies showed that sweating went down between 82 and 87%, and the effects lasted up to a year.
