In this article, we share some information about if you should get Botox® or Dysport® treatment for your wrinkles.
What is Dysport®?
In order to properly choose the best product to go with for your individual wrinkle treatments, you must first learn about what it is. Dysport® has many similarities to Botox®. Both injectables are non-invasive muscle relaxers that are used to correct a variety of age complications. By composition, Dysport® is a botulinum toxin that causes your facial muscles to relax. It’s injected under the skin and directed towards targeted areas. Dysport® treats moderate to severe cases of wrinkles.
What is Botox®?
You have probably header about Botox® before. It is a very popular product in the cosmetic industry and there are countless shows on television that feature the product. Botox® fillers work in much the same way as Dysport®. Both have the same active ingredient, Botulinum Toxin A. This weakened virus works by blocking nerve signals to target muscles, with the result being a softer and more relaxed muscle. With muscle relaxation, wrinkles and forehead lines are eliminated for certain periods of time. Botox® injections are effective for 3-4 months. Botox and Dysport® are often used interchangeably because of their similarities.
What areas can Dysport® and Botox® be effective?
Because Dysport® and Botox® are so similar, they can both be used to target a variety of areas. Additionally, they can also be used in unison to treat one specific area. Some of the target areas that both of these products can treat include:
When treating the fine lines that appear around your eyes (Crow’s feet), Dysport® may deliver more desirable results. This is because Dysport® diffuses easily to larger areas and relives more wrinkles in the process.
Wrinkles under the eye:
The wrinkles in between your eyes and around your eyes may be better treated by Botox®. Botox® diffuses less and works great for small target areas on your face.
Dysport® may also be more effective for treating forehead lines because of how easily it spreads. Another difference arises in terms of dosage. Because Dysport® is more diluted, you may need a higher dosage of Dysport® when compared to Botox®.
So, should you get Botox® or Dysport® treatment for your wrinkles? The choice is ultimately up to you. However, whatever product you choose, you will experience high-end results at LightTouch Med Spa!
