Botox And Dysport Injections

4 years ago By Ästhetik Rx Injections

Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that block muscle contractions. Both are widely used to treat facial wrinkles non-surgically and are derived from botulinum toxins. These two treatments do have their differences, it is best to book a consultation and discuss which option is ideal for you. Dermal fillers are injected in a medical spa and require no downtime. Before they're injected, a mild anesthetic may be applied to help alleviate any pain.

Botox Vs. Dysport: How Do They Compare?

These injections are noninvasive and relax the muscles beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. When the muscles remain still, the skin becomes smoother, and wrinkles are less noticeable. Dysport works best when used on the lines in between the eyebrows known as the glabella. These lines are most noticeable when you frown. Glabella lines naturally become more prominent with age as the skin loses collagen. Dysport is used to treat moderate or severe cases and is not recommended for minimal glabella wrinkles. Botox is useful for treating crow's feet, forehead lines, and glabellar lines. Typically, you will see results from both within a few days. Results with Dysport last for up to four months. Botox injections can last up to six months. Dermal filler injections are not permanent and must be repeated to maintain their effects. Each procedure takes very little time usually just a few minutes to complete.

Side Effects

If you experience any side effects, they should only last for a few days. Botox and Dysport are both considered safe treatments for wrinkles but there is a risk for mild side effects including:

- Muscle stiffness

- Irritation

- Minor pain at the site of the injections
