What's the difference between Botox and Dysport?
I'm planning on getting some Botox to clear up my worry lines in the new year. This will be the first time I've ever done anything like this and I really don't know very much about these things - although I'm slowly learning. A cousin of mine who is no stranger to plastic surgery told me recently that she was given something sort of like Botox but called Dysport. From what I can tell on the internet they seem to be pretty much the same thing but I'm not entirely sure. She recommended the Dysport to me but I really don't know what I should do anymore. Suggestions?
All the neuromodulators are similar in effect and I do not find a difference in how long they last. Dysport seems to take consistently take effect within 3-4 days so for patients who have used the other products and it has take longer to take effect, Dyposrt may be a good option.
Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Medicis) and Xeomin (Merz) are injectable neuromodulators that temporarily paralyze muscle movements that cause wrinkles. They are very similar and you should consult with a physician with expertise in injectables.
