When BOTOX® hit the market, it took the cosmetic world by storm. People were amazed at just how powerful it could be when it came to addressing issues with dynamic wrinkles. For many years, when it came to addressing dynamic wrinkles in a non-surgical way, BOTOX® was the only game in town. Recently, other products such as Dysport® have hit the market. Dysport® is producing some amazing results. So the question is, which is going to be best for you?
It’s important to note that both BOTOX® and Dysport® have received FDA approval. This means that both of these products have gone through rigorous clinical studies and have been shown to be very effective in treating dynamic wrinkles. Although Dysport® is newer in the United States, it has been used in Europe for some time.
These products have a lot of similarities. For example, both products use the same type of protein to relax muscles. By relaxing muscles, they are able to minimize the lines that these muscles create when they are contracted.
Interestingly, BOTOX® has larger molecules than Dysport® does. So when you purchase units of the former, you purchase less than you would of the latter. However, you’re getting the same potency.
When it comes to the duration of the results from these products, some argue that BOTOX® lasts a little bit longer than Dysport®. But the duration and efficiency are relatively negligible. It all depends on the unique case.
