Dysport® is the New and Exciting Botox Alternative
Botox® and Dysport® are neuromodulators that are both similar in how they are injected and their intended use. They are used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in facial muscles to make you look and feel younger.
Each product has its own advantages. Some people see fantastic results from the different products. Since you are unique, it is great to have a choice to find the one that suits you best.
After the injection both products work by stopping the signals from the nerves to the muscles and allow the muscles to relax. Once the muscles are able to relax they will stop contracting and the wrinkles will smooth out. This smoothing out of wrinkles will definitely be visible on your face.
Some of the common areas to target with these products are:
- Lines around the eye’s, known as crow’s feet, caused by squinting and smiling
- The horizontal lines across the forehead caused by raising the eyebrows
- The lines and folding of the skin between the eyebrows (glabella) caused by frowning
- Neck bands (platysma)
Dysport® is also known to show results faster than Botox®, some people even see results two days sooner than using Botox®. Typically people see results in 3-5 days and it can take up to 2 weeks for the product to take full effect. This is great if you need a quick fix and you are short on time for an upcoming party or meeting. Both products show results for a similar amount of time after they take effect.
Having regular sessions, typically every 4 months, can be beneficial as it can teach the muscles to relax and stay relaxed so you get the look for longer.
If you have been taking Botox® for a while and you are showing a resistance to it, you may want to consider trying Dysport® as it may work for you so you get the results you want again.
Dysport® also tends to spread out over a wider area from each injection so you can cover a larger area with fewer needle injections.
While each product has advantages over the other one, it will come down to your personal preference and your consultation with the injection doctor.
