Dysport lasts between 3 and 4 months and needs additional treatments to maintain amazing results.
Botoxis a safe and effective treatment that can last up to 4 months, although it can possibly last 6 months, depending on the location of the injection. The duration of treatment when using botulinum proteins is also very similar. Usually, Botox and Dysport last about 3 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. On average, an injection of Dysport will last between three and four months, while a Botox treatment can last four to six months. Although both use the same neurotoxin to prevent folds and lines from forming on the skin, they have small differences that can affect their duration.
Clinical studies show that Dysport lasts up to 4 months. In my experience, some patients find that Dysport lasts longer than Botox; while others notice the opposite or no difference between the two injectables. Clinical studies have shown that Dysport lasts up to four months. On average, there is no difference in how long wrinkles stay away with Botox or 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. Dysport is approved by the FDA to last four months, but, like Botox, it can last up to six months, depending on the person.
Dysport and Botox results will last approximately the same amount of time. In other words, more does not mean an increasing duration. 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 can also be used to lift the corners of the mouth, raise the eyebrows, decrease dimpling on the chin, slimming the face by reducing bulky jaw muscles and reducing neck lines. However, the disparity is misleading, since 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. Botox is exclusive to the US market, while Dysport was used in Europe long before receiving FDA approval.
Dysport can also be used to raise the eyebrows, lift the corners of the mouth, decrease dimples on the chin, reduce neck lines, and thin the face by decreasing the mass of the jaw muscles. The results of Botox and Dysport will always differ from patient to patient, and while Dysport can generally be expected to fade before treatment with Botox, some factors may change that. Botox and Dysport are most effective when used on dynamic lines, those that appear when you frown or raise your eyebrows, for example. .
