Is Dysport just like Botox?

By January 5, 2013 No Comments

 

If the word “Botox” is in your vocab but the word “Dysport” you’re unfamiliar with, that certainly will change for you very soon.  “Dysport”will become a very fluent term as the high demand for its use continues to climb.

Dysport is a prescription  injection, administered by Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Layke, both skilled and reputable Plastic Surgeons at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group.                  Dysport is used to improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without drastically changing the look of your entire face, yet profoundly rejuvenating your appearance.

How is Dysport like Botox?

Both  Dysport and Botox are Botulinum Toxin A, a derived protein that works by relaxing targeted muscles.  The differences  seen and that are reported in the literature include a faster onset and a more affordable price than Botox.   The difference in using Botox vs. Dysport is mostly known by the treating physician as these products  are diluted and dosed differently.

Dysport has been used in Europe for many years and became available for cosmetic use in 2002 in the USA via Medicis,  the makers of Restylane and Perlane.

So , why choose Dysport? If it is so that the effects take quicker and last longer than Botox, we think that’s a fair enough reason. And saving a little bit more money doesn’t hurt either.  In short, it is great to have another option and we are always looking for something better for our patients.
