What is the Difference Between Botox and Dysport
Botox is a widely marketed and popular neuromodulator. This product is used to stop your muscles from contracting and will result in a correction and or elimination of superficial lines and wrinkles. Dysport is very similar to Botox as it too, is an neuromodulator. Dysport is known as a stronger toxin. Dysport disperses in a wider area than Botox. Because of the wider distribution Dysport is stronger, fewer units can be used to achieve a similar result to Botox. Dysport’s onset of action is 6-12 hours as Botox onset of action is 48-72 hours. For 40% of the population, Dysport will last 3-4 weeks longer than Botox. Every person reacts differently to both products. Nurse Meg offers both products for treatment to tailor to each client's individual needs.
