How to Choose Between BOTOX® and Dysport® for Wrinkle Reduction

Woman smiling When those fine lines and wrinkles start becoming more noticeable, you may be considering injectable treatments like BOTOX® or Dysport® to help smooth things out. But with two top options for reducing wrinkles, how do you decide which is right for you? Here’s what you need to know about the differences between BOTOX® and Dysport® and how to choose the best wrinkle reducer.

Considering Effectiveness

When evaluating BOTOX® vs. Dysport®, you’ll be happy to know both are highly effective at temporarily smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® has been approved for cosmetic use since 2002. Dysport® is newer, approved in 2009. But don’t let that fool you. Both contain botulinum toxin type A, the active ingredient that relaxes muscles under wrinkles to soften their appearance. The main difference is that Dysport® tends to work a little faster. You may see results in 2 to 3 days rather than a week with BOTOX®. So, if quick results are most important, Dysport® may get your vote.

Evaluating Treatment Areas

While BOTOX® and Dysport® can treat wrinkles in various areas of the upper face, they aren’t necessarily created equal for all treatment zones. Discuss with your doctor the specific areas you’d like treated and they can help you determine if BOTOX® and Dysport® is right for you. To make sure you don’t forget which areas you’d like treated, make a physical or mental note about fine lines and wrinkles you’d like to see reduced. Your doctor will help you decide whether targeted precision with BOTOX® or wider coverage with Dysport® better fits your needs.
