If you are starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles aging your face, then it is likely time to consider BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections to restore your youthful beauty. Injectables are a great way to renew your appearance without undergoing costly cosmetic surgery. In fact, these injections are the most common cosmetic procedure performed today.

How BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® Work
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are both FDA-approved injectables that utilize Botulinum Toxin Type A, which is a purified protein, to temporarily block the transmissions of nerve signals to your muscles. Relaxing the muscles beneath your skin allows your skin to relax over them and reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.
Differences in BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®
BOTOX® Cosmetic was FDA approved more than 20 years ago and was the first injectable to use OnabotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum Toxin Type A) to address lines and wrinkles in the face. BOTOX® can also be used for neck bands muscle spasms as well as treating excessive underarm sweating and eyelid twitching.
The FDA approved Dysport® in 2009, making it the first competitor for BOTOX® Cosmetic.
While there are many similarities between these injectables, there are two main differences:
- Dysport® may have a faster onset than BOTOX® Cosmetic.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic may last longer than Dysport®, but repeat treatments will be required every 3-6 months for both injectables.
Treatment Areas for BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®
BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport only affect wrinkles caused by overactive muscles. These include:
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Vertical lines between the brows (glabellar lines)
- Crow's feet
- Bunny lines
- Lipstick or smoker's lines
- Neck bands (platysmal bands)
- Jaw slimming (masseter hypertrophy)
