Dysport vs. Botox: What is the Difference?

Dysport and Botox are non-surgical treatments for reducing wrinkles and signs of aging. Both injections come from the neurotoxic protein called botulinum toxin, which relaxes the facial muscles.

However, the main difference between the two is that Dysport is used primarily for treating glabellar lines. Glabellar lines are the frown lines that appear between your eyebrows, and individuals with moderate to severe wrinkles in this area are often the best candidates for Dysport.

While Dysport can be used to treat other areas of the face, Botox more commonly treats a wider range of wrinkles, including crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. There are additional differences between the two options, including price, results, and allergic reactions. 

Dysport Results are Visible Sooner

Dysport and Botox last about four months; however, with Dysport, you will likely see results a few days earlier than with Botox. In general, the effects of Dysport begin to appear visible after just two days. In comparison, Botox results can take about a week to start appearing. 


In Morristown, NJ, What Happens at a Dysport Injection Appointment?

Dysport is a non-invasive solution for wrinkles, so your appointment in our Morristown office will be quick and easy. For your initial appointment, you should expect to be in the office for about 30 minutes, but the procedure itself only takes 10-15 minutes.

At the start of your appointment, the cosmetic dermatologist will make sure your face is properly cleaned before proceeding with the procedure. You can expect slight discomfort when the Dysport is injected and minimal bruising and swelling during the first few hours following your appointment. 

What are the Results of Dysport Treatment?

After about 24-48 hours, you will begin to notice the results of your Dysport treatment. The length of time patients can go between treatments will vary depending on metabolism and the extent of their wrinkles. Most people notice a reduction in facial wrinkles in just 2-3 days, which will last for around 3-4 months.

If you are interested in reducing your wrinkles, here are some FDA-approved uses of Dysport:

Wrinkles Around the Eyes (Crow’s Feet)

Crow’s feet refer to the small lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes. Crow’s feet are a sign that you have spent a lot of time throughout your life smiling, but for some, it can be a source of feeling self-conscious. Dysport is a great option for reducing these wrinkles and making you look years younger. 

Wrinkles Between the Eyebrows (Worry Lines)

Worry lines form after years of furrowing your brow and can give your appearance a permanent expression of concern. Dysport treatments can help smooth out these lines and soften your overall appearance. 

Along the Forehead (Horizontal Lines)

Over time we raise our eyebrows often without even realizing it, eventually leaving permanent lines along the forehead. These lines can make you look tired or upset even when you are not. Dysport can be injected into the forehead to give you a more youthful and awake look. 

Relief of Chronic Migraines

Studies have shown that Dysport can also treat medical conditions such as chronic migraines. Dysport is injected into areas of the head and neck and can significantly reduce the number of days a patient experiences a migraine each month.

Excessive Underarm Sweating

Excessive underarm sweating can create an overabundance of bacteria in the armpit, causing body odor that even deodorant cannot combat. Dysport temporarily prevents the chemicals that trigger sweat production, decreasing moisture in the area by 82 to 87 percent. 

TMJ Relief 

TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint, which can develop certain disorders that cause pain and tension in the jaw. Studies show that Dysport can be used to relieve some of this discomfort when injected into the jaw. However, the use of Dysport to treat TMJ disorders is still experimental, so discuss your options for TMJ relief with our staff. 


Dysport FAQs

Like Botox, Dysport is a minimally invasive procedure to temporarily remove wrinkles so no downtime is needed. Your appointment will be brief and easy, and afterward, you may have slight swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site. These symptoms will not hinder you from returning to all normal activities, even exercise, and should fade in the following day or two.

Dysport works at a quicker rate than Botox, with full results usually appearing after just 2-3 days. The exact result time will vary from patient to patient. However, you should expect to see the benefits of the treatment in just a few days. Both Botox and Dysport help reduce wrinkles in specific areas of the face.

Treatments are designed to be quick and easy, so you should expect to be in the office for about 30 minutes. The Dysport procedure only takes about 15-20 minutes, after which you should be able to return to anything you have planned for the rest of the day.
