Does Dysport Last as Long as Botox?

Dysport and Botox are two of the most popular injectables used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Both use botulinum proteins to prevent folds and lines from forming on the skin, but they have small differences that can affect their duration. Clinical studies show that Dysport lasts up to 4 months, while Botox can last up to 6 months, depending on the location of the injection. On average, an injection of Dysport will last between three and four months, while a Botox treatment can last four to six months.

In some patients we see that the product can last a little more or less, due to the metabolism of the product in our body. Just as one may prefer Coca-Cola to Pepsi, many of our patients who have tried both products feel that they like the results of one product over the other. It is important to note that neither Botox treatment nor Dysport treatment lasts long, as the body constantly produces new neurotransmitters to counteract neurotoxin. People who have neuromuscular disorders, are allergic to the ingredients in Botox or Dysport, or are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid using these injections.

Dysport is also approved by the FDA for use in lifting the corners of the mouth, raising eyebrows, decreasing dimpling on the chin, slimming the face by reducing bulky jaw muscles and reducing neck lines. However, three (units) of Dysport are needed to provide the same muscle relaxing power as a single unit of Botox. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, meaning you will receive more dosage units if you use Dysport. Dysport is believed to have a slightly faster start time than Botox (two to three days compared to three to five).

Both Dysport and Botox are sometimes used to treat muscle spasms, sweat gland disorders, migraines or TMJ. While primarily known for use as a cosmetic procedure, both Botox and Dysport can also treat certain skin conditions, such as overactive muscles and excessive sweating. In addition to the patient's physical composition and how often they use facial muscles, their lifestyle and environment also play a key role in the duration of treatment with Dysport. It really depends on your body. Some patients find that Dysport lasts longer for them and others see better results with Botox.

Or you may not notice any difference between the two treatments. Ultimately, it is up to you and your doctor to decide which injectable is best for you. Botox is exclusive to the US market, while Dysport was used in Europe long before receiving FDA approval. Both treatments are most effective when used on dynamic lines, those that appear when you frown or raise your eyebrows, for example. In conclusion, both Dysport and Botox are safe and effective treatments that can last up to 4 months or longer depending on your body's metabolism and lifestyle factors. It is important to consult with your doctor before deciding which injectable is best for you.
