Botox & Dysport in NYC
What are Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport are medical injections that temporarily reduce muscle activity, improving the look of facial muscles. While Botox and Dysport treatments are primarily used at aesthetic rejuvenation centers, they may also be utilized at pain clinics or other medical practices for a wider variety of ailments.
Why are Botox and Dysport used?
Botox and Dysport can be used to treat any of the following cosmetic concerns:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (lines between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet (lines on the side of the eyes)
Botox injections are also sometimes used to help rejuvenate hands that have become discolored, wrinkled, or rough.
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
While the two treatments have similar goals—to improve the look of facial wrinkles, they have some key differences. Below is a brief description of what makes each injection unique:
Botox is the first drug to use botulinum toxin, followed later by Dysport and other similar injection treatments. It usually onsets within 4-7 days after the injection, and usually lasts for several months.
Dysport also uses botulinum toxin to relax the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. However, Dysport—formerly known as Reloxin—has a slightly quicker onset time than Botox, may cover a wider area of the face, and tends to last less time. Most of these conclusions are still being studied, and in general, the two treatments are considered to be very similar.
