Who Needs Wrinkles During the Summer? Not You!

Posted: June 15, 2023

Forehead wrinklesSummer is right around the corner and if you’re like most people, you’re excited to hit the beach. But those stubborn wrinkles around your eyes and frown lines on your forehead can make you feel less confident about stepping into the sun. After all, the sun is known to cause skin damage. Luckily, Orange County Cosmetic Surgery has the perfect solution: Dysport®. Dysport is the latest alternative to BOTOX® and we’ll tell you how this injectable does wonders for forehead wrinkles.

What Are the Differences Between Dysport® and BOTOX Injections?

FDA-Approval

BOTOX first became FDA-approved in the United States in 1989. Since then, it has helped millions of women and men slow down, reverse, or prevent the process of aging. Dysport, on the other hand, only became FDA-approved as recently as 2009. 

However, other countries, such as the United Kingdom, approved doctors to use Dysport as early as 1990. In the United Kingdom, Dysport was used to treat blepharospasm, which is a disorder that causes you to uncontrollably close both eyes, and hemifacial spasm, a condition that causes you to uncontrollably close one of your eyes.

Applicability

Dysport is best used to treat frown lines near your eyebrows (as its historical usage might suggest). It is also, perhaps, better suited to treat forehead wrinkles because it spreads quickly and can cover large surfaces in a short time. BOTOX is more versatile in nature. However, many cosmetic surgeons agree that Dysport is preferred over BOTOX if you’re worried about the wrinkles on your forehead.

Sustainability

The effects of BOTOX last an average of four to six months. Dysport results last an average of three to four months. The results of either injectable will wear off over time, so you’ll need to see your cosmetic surgeon every few months regardless of which injectable you prefer.
