Botox and Dysport
This popular injectable uses the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin to temporarily prevent, reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Since there are muscle nerves beneath every wrinkle, administering micro-doses of neuromodulators to that nerve can block or freeze its impulses, allowing the facial muscle to relax. This results in skin that is smoother, softer-looking, and renewed.
The areas most commonly treated with Botox are frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, and around the eyes. It can also be used to treat deep neck bands or wrinkles, lip lines, soften over-developed jaw muscles, lift the corners of the mouth, or correct a gummy smile.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a trade-name for the protein and neurotoxin Botolinum Toxin. The protein is used cosmetically as a muscle relaxing injection for the treatment of wrinkles. As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and dynamic wrinkles begin to form. Botox is the most effective skin treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out and you’ll be left with a youthful, glowing appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
Fight frown lines and the overdone look.
Those who want a natural look choose Dysport. It’s proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. Don’t surrender to a look that’s just not you. Take charge of your frown lines by asking for Dysport by name.
Instead of making you feel like your face is frozen, Dysport temporarily treats the facial muscles in just the area you want — between the eyebrows — and allows the muscles in the untreated areas of your face to move normally. Delight, surprise, shock, concern — you can still show your natural facial expressions when treating moderate to severe frown lines with Dysport. And that's certainly something to smile about.
Difference between Botox and Dysport
Overall Botox and Dysport are very similar. Both are a type of botulinum type A used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and other over active muscles of the face, like forehead lines and crows feet. I tell my patients that it’s like comparing apples to apples. There’s a difference between a Fuji apple and a Gala apple, but they are still both apples. Dysport is a smaller-sized molecule so its unit measurement is different than Botox.
Both have been in use for years (Dysport in Europe only until recently) and have a high safety profile, both can be used on other parts of the face and body, and both Dysport and Botox must be injected every 3-6 months.
