What’s the Difference Between Dysport and Botox?

When searching for an injectable wrinkle-reduction solution, many patients find themselves choosing between Dysport and Botox. Both products use the same action mechanism in human muscles, allowing muscle tissue and nerve impulses to relax, which leads to fewer visible wrinkles in the face and elsewhere.

But what are the differences between Dysport and Botox? A lot of it comes down to personal preference, but there are a few technical differences to understand before deciding on one treatment over the other.

Dysport Explained

Although it’s very similar to Botox in makeup and action, Dysport is a bit more diluted, which affects both its dosage levels and the ways in which the product eventually breaks down and loses its effectiveness.

Additionally, Dysport’s slightly different formula and structure make it behave differently once it’s been injected into a patient’s body. Dysport usually diffuses more, which means it spreads out over a broader area and treats wider wrinkles and areas with narrower muscles, such as the forehead. It also, however, means that Dysport is less effective at treating smaller areas or areas with thicker muscle coverage, including the space between eyebrows and the lower half of the face.

Botox Explained

While both Dysport and Botox are forms of botulinum toxin type A, an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Franckle can use Botox more precisely and target specific muscle groups and areas of the body. This can, in the long run, mean fewer injections and more precise, effective wrinkle-reduction in specific target areas. As an added bonus, fewer injections mean lower costs.

Botox treatments take only around 10 minutes to complete, are nearly painless for the patient, and provide results that last for up to four months. Dr. Franckle can work with you to create a customized non-surgical facial rejuvenation plan using Botox, as well as combining other popular options like Juvederm.

For more information on non-surgical cosmetic treatments or to schedule a consultation, contact William Franckle, MD, FACS online or call 856-772-6500.

Fillers FAQ: How Is the Recovery Process?⁠

Here we go! >>⁠

As a non-invasive procedure, Dr. Franckle will administer the smooth gel treatment via an injection.⁠

Mild bruising, redness, itching, and swelling are normal reactions at the injection site and should subside in 2-4 weeks or less. ⁠

Once the swelling reduces, patients typically start to notice results 2-3 weeks after treatment. ⁠

" From consultation to surgery and a year worth of follow ups, Dr.Franckle has been amazing. ⁠

He truly listens to his patients and adds his expertise to provide amazing results. I've wanted to have a breast augmentation completed for many years. I've even spoke with other surgeons.⁠

As soon as I had the consultation with Dr. Franckle, I booked the procedure. ⁠

He made me feel at ease, answered every question I had and genuinely cared for my input and how I felt. ⁠

His office staff is also wonderful and very attentive. I'm very satisfied with my results and would highly recommend." - Breast Aug (Jan 2021)⁠
