Dysport® vs. BOTOX® Cosmetic

Many people considering non-surgical alternatives to plastic surgery in Houston will be happy to know that they have a choice between Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic for wrinkle-free skin. Both options provide men and women with temporary relief from early signs of aging, and can enhance a number of complementary surgical procedures.

  • BOTOX Cosmetic takes a few days to show improvement in diminishing the appearance of frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles, and lasts up to 4 months. It was introduced in 2002 in the United States, approximately 7 years before Dysport.
  • Dysport targets the same types of wrinkles as BOTOX, blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles causing these wrinkles. With only one injection necessary, total treatment time is only 10-20 minutes. Some patients report the Dysport is faster acting than BOTOX.

So which of these injectables is right for you? Your doctor should have specific recommendations that will help you decide.
