Dysport is a wrinkle relaxer derived from “botulinum toxin” products that help to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Most clients use Dysport for moderate to severe problem areas such as the forehead, frown lines, upper eyelids, neck, and the lines between the eyebrows.
Although Botox and Dysport are each made by different companies, they are nearly identical in function. Dysport is made by Galderma, the producers of Restylane filler, but both it and Botox are neurotoxins.
How is Dysport different?
Overall, both products are very similar, and the comparison of the two would be like Coke to Pepsi – it’s a personal preference! Both products have the same active ingredient, are injected, and behave similarly, so you are unlikely to notice any difference during treatment.
Dysport will occasionally take effect faster than Botox due to its smaller molecular size, but this outcome will vary from person to person. Neither Botox nor Dysport is proven to last longer than the other. Metabolic speed, among other factors, dictates how long the results of the treatment will last. You should consider trying both options to see which works best for you.
How many units do I need?
Dysport and Botox units are not packed the same way, so you shouldn’t expect to receive the same number of Dysport units as Botox units. All medications have measurements that describe the amount of the active ingredient measured by weight (milligrams, grams, etc.). However, medications that are derived from bodily products (such as Botox) measure in units.
Some claim that Botox is approximately three times stronger than Dysport, but Dysport merely is smaller, so it’s unit measurement is different than Botox. The ratio of Dysport to Botox units is generally 3:1, so if you needed 20 units of Botox in your forehead you would need about 60 units of Dysport. The difference in measurement doesn’t make Dysport any less effective.
The benefits of Dysport
The most significant benefit of Dysport is the improvement it makes to one’s appearance. Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines can improve self-confidence and reduce the appearance of aging.
