What is the Difference Between BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®?

brown-hair-hand-chinBOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® can both effectively minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. These popular injectables are neuromodulators that can temporarily inhibit the overactive facial muscles that often lead to unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are nonsurgical treatments that can be used to treat the forehead, the lower face, and the area around the eyes.

There are, however, a couple key differences. In many cases, Dysport® can be more effective at treating the forehead region, while BOTOX® Cosmetic can more effectively treat the lower face. Additionally, while the results of Dysport® can often be seen within 24 hours, the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic can take one to two weeks to fully appear. The best way to determine which injectable can best achieve your cosmetic goals is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon.
