The Differences Between Botox and Dysport

Botox and Dyspot are both types of injectable treatments that are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face. A few different companies manufacture them, but two of the most popular are Botox and Dysport. So what are some of the key differences between Botox and Dysport? 


Botox is made from botulinum toxin type A, while Dysport is made from abobotulinum toxin A. While they are both derived from the same bacterial toxin, they have slightly different chemical structures. 


The dosages of Botox and Dysport are not equivalent. Dysport units are generally more diluted than Botox units. More units are typically required to achieve the same effects. 


Dysport may diffuse more easily than Botox, meaning it may have a wider spread and affect a larger area. This can be an advantage in some cases, such as when treating larger areas of the face. It can also be a disadvantage if the injection is not placed precisely. 


Dysport may have a faster onset than Botox by a day or two, with some patients seeing results within 2-3 days after treatment. Botox typically takes 3-7 days to start seeing noticeable results. Botox and Dysport can take up to 14 days to fully effect. 


Lastly, the effects of Dysport may last slightly longer than Botox’s. Typically, results for both Botox and Dysport will lat about 3 to 4 months on average.
