Botox and Dysport Injection
Botox and Dysport are products that are injected into the skin to prevent facial wrinkles and reduce the appearance of folds in the face. Botox and Dysport are made from onabotulinumtoxinA which relaxes muscles and prevents them from creating wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are a great way to stop lines from becoming a fixed feature in the face. They treat dynamic wrinkles that are caused bu moving the muscles in your face.
What is the difference between Botox, Dysport, & Dermal fillers?
- The effect of Dysport can be seen quicker than the effect of Botox. Where Botox may take 3 to 5 days to work, the effect of Dysport can be seen 1 to 2 days after the initial treatment as it starts to smooth out unwanted facial lines. The full results of both can be seen 1 to 2 weeks after the initial procedure. Botox and Dysport differ from dermal fillers because they treat the muscle, unlike fillers which use collagen to plump up the skin and add volume.
- Botox and Dysport prevent wrinkles and folds when the person’s face is at rest and when the face is moving. Dermal fillers only work when the persons face is at rest and the lines reappear when the person makes any facial expression. Also dermal fillers work best for unwanted lines in the bottom half of the face whereas Botox and Dysport are best for the upper half of the face.
