Best Uses Of Dysport

Dysport was tested in over 2,900 patients in over 80 study sites across the country and was approved as a safe and effective product for reducing unwanted muscle activity in the glabellar area. The dosing units of DYSPORT are not the same as and are not interchangeable with those of BOTOX®. Dosing is determined by a variety of factors such as muscle thickness, patient gender, strength of muscle action and past patient response to neurotoxin injections. Dysport is distributed by Medicis, the same company that provides Restylane.
Dysport Vs. BOTOX® Cosmetic
Dysport is made from botulinum toxin Type A (minus a protein) and is injected in the same way. Both work by temporarily preventing or reducing muscle action, which reduces lines and furrows.
Dysport injections are most commonly used between the eyebrows, in the forehead and next to the eyes, where “crow’s feet” form. Dysport affects only dynamically caused wrinkles, not those caused by aging or collagen depletion. These lines we can treat with various fillers or lasers such as the SP Dynamix, ActiveFX or DeepFX.
Dysport in some cases has been found to work well for patients who have developed antibodies to BOTOX® Cosmetic referred to as “BOTOX resistance” by some patients.
Good to know: Clinical studies of Dysport found it “spreads more” during injection. This is both a good and a bad thing. It is good in that large areas that need injection (forehead, armpits) would require fewer injections due to the spreading. This would mean less likelihood of potential discomfort, swelling or bruising for the patient. It is bad in that unless the Physician is an experienced injector with a good understanding of more complex musculature (around the eyes, between the eyebrows), the Dysport could spread into unwanted areas causing untoward side effects (blurry vision, droopy eyebrows).

Botox® & Dysport® FAQs
What is the Difference Between Botox® and Dysport®?
Does Botox® Last Longer than Dysport®?
Both Botox® and Dysport® offer similar results in terms of longevity. Both treatments effectively reduce facial wrinkles for a period of four to six months.
Can You Mix Dysport® and Botox®?
Yes, you can mix Dysport® and Botox® together as the formulas are quite similar. However, depending on your cosmetic goals, this may not be necessary. Your doctor can help you determine the optimal treatment plan.
Which is Safer, Botox® or Dysport®?
Both Botox® and Dysport® are completely safe when administered by a qualified and experienced professional. They also produce similar side effects, so there is little difference in the body’s response to these treatments.
Which Works Better, Botox® or Dysport®?
Both Botox® and Dysport® can be highly effective at reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. However, Dysport® may affect a wider area with a single injection, which might make it the better option for patients looking to address larger areas of the face.
Dysport® injections can help visibly reduce the appearance of your crow’s feet, frown lines and deep wrinkles across the forehead.
