What’s the difference between Botox® and Dysport®?

Exactly how the two wrinkle-relaxers differ is not fully understood. Initial reports suggest that Dysport® may act quicker. Botox® takes three to five days to work, while Dysport® seems to work within one to two days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving Dysport® treatment. This rapid response could be the deciding factor for a woman or man looking to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting. What’s more, the Botox® alternative may last longer than its predecessor. Some studies have shown that Dysport injections may keep wrinkles at bay for six months to one year, as opposed to the approximate three month time frame associated with Botox®. There may be some downsides to Dysport®. Botox® manufacturer Allergan points out that Dysport® may be more likely to cause antibody formation. The body develops antibodies when it recognizes a foreign invader and attacks it. If you develop antibodies to Dysport®, your body neutralizes the toxin, potentially preventing it from working.

What are the side effects?

Potential side effects of Dysport® are similar to those associated with Botox treatment. They include local numbness, swelling, bruising or a burning sensation during injection. These side effects can be mitigated by placing ice on the injection site before and after the procedure.

What are the costs of Dysport®?

The cost of Dysport® treatment ends up being similar to Botox®. $9/unit.
