Botox and Dysport Treat
Frequently Asked Questions
The primary difference lies in the brand name. All three are forms of botulinum toxin delivered in a freeze-dried form. Once reconstituted with bacteriostatic saline, these proteins are injected into a muscle. This disrupts the nerve’s communication with the muscle, thereby reducing movement and the wrinkles it creates.
Typically, the effects of Botox and Dysport last between three to four months. Individuals may notice improved outcomes after multiple treatments as the treated facial muscles become progressively more relaxed with each procedure. When the initial effects begin to fade, Botox and Dysport treatments can be repeated.
Botox and Dysport are primarily used to address signs of aging, but they can also smooth wrinkles on the neck and occasionally treat excessive sweating. Common treatment sites include the areas between the eyebrows, the forehead, around the eyes, and the expression lines around the mouth.
Dysport and Botox are different brands of botulinum toxin. While Dysport typically lasts as long as Botox injections, it has a quicker onset time. Relaxes muscles that cause wrinkles, such as those in the glabella (between the eyebrows), forehead, crow’s feet, chin, and more. It is also beneficial for people with TMJ pain or teeth grinding – injecting the medicine into the masseter muscle can relax the power of the bite, relieving pain and creating a slimming effect on the jaw.
The effects of Botox and Dysport injections are not immediately noticeable after treatment. However, most people start to see the effects within a few days. For Botox, the onset of effects typically occurs within 3 to 5 days, but it can take up to 2 weeks for the full effect. On the other hand, Dysport tends to work a bit faster, with most people seeing results within 2 to 3 days. It’s important to note that individual results can vary, and the exact timing can depend on factors such as the specific area treated, the individual’s muscle mass, and the amount of product used.
Botox and Dysport are approved by the FDA and considered safe when administered by a qualified professional. However, if you have medical conditions or allergies, we recommend consulting with your physician before undergoing any treatment.
