Dysport® vs BOTOX® – Which Treatment is Right for You?


You may have started noticing the wrinkles on your face, and you’re thinking of having botulinum toxin injections. While most people know BOTOX® as a treatment option, other effective alternatives exist, such as Dysport®.

Dysport® and BOTOX® are nonsurgical treatments that help get rid of wrinkles on your face. However, there are some key differences. Knowing the difference between Dysport® and BOTOX® can ensure you settle for the best treatment that meets your aesthetic goals.

Dysport® and BOTOX®: The Difference

Dysport® and BOTOX® differ in their specific uses. For instance, Dysport® is a cosmetic procedure mainly used to correct glabellar lines – the lines that appear on your scalp when you frown. The treatment is quite effective for individuals with moderate to severe glabellar lines.

On the other hand, BOTOX® can be used for various wrinkles, including laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

Dysport® and BOTOX® also differ in their concentration level of the protein used in the treatment. Generally, BOTOX® is more concentrated than Dysport®.

Another notable difference between Dysport® and BOTOX® is that you might realize that Dysport®’s effects last longer. Depending on your doctor, Dysport® might be less costly than BOTOX®.

Are you a good candidate for Dysport® or BOTOX®?

Dysport® and BOTOX® are FDA-approved, but it’s important to know whether you’re a good candidate for either treatment.

You are a good candidate if you are:

  • In good physical health
  • At least 18 years or older
  • Free from neuromuscular diseases like MS
  • Well aware of the effectiveness of Dysport® or BOTOX® in terms of what it can or can’t achieve
  • Not allergic to any of the ingredients used in the treatments
