Although most people recognize the name Botox, many might not be as familiar with Dysport. Both are “Neuromodulators,” FDA-approved treatments used to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles. While Botox has become the most familiar name in the cosmetic business, Dysport is giving it a run for its money. Here’s why Dysport could be the new Botox.
Dysport and Botox
Both Dysport and Botox are brands of botulinum toxin. They work by temporarily paralyzing muscles in the targeted areas which results in the smoothing of the deep lines that give away your age.
Neuromodulators fill out your lax skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. They are one of the most popular forms of injections used for facial wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet.
Botulinum toxin injections are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that temporarily reduce and eliminate wrinkles. The treatments are FDA-approved to fight a number of aging woes including:
- Lines between the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Forehead furrows
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles around the mouth and jawline
- Neck bands
Although results are temporary, it is an affordable and minimally invasive alternative to costly, painful cosmetic surgery procedures.
Why are People Choosing Dysport?
Dysport was specifically designed to reduce the appearance of lines in the glabella, the area between your eyebrows. These prominent wrinkles can be quite deep and extend upward, or vertically on the forehead. They are commonly referred to as “frown lines,” as they are most noticeable when someone frowns.
Although glabella lines usually only appear when frowning, as you age, they can become more prominent even when relaxing. With the loss of collagen, your skin loses its elasticity which adds to the prominence of wrinkles.
Dysport is used for people with moderate or severe cases of glabella lines. It is rising in popularity as it takes effect in just a few days while Botox usually takes a week or up to a month. As well, studies have shown that patients preferred the results seen with Dysport when treating crow’s feet.
Why are Some People Sticking with Botox?
Botox is still being used by people who have been using it for years. It provides a familiar treatment they know will provide the results they desire when addressing forehead lines, and other wrinkle issues such as crow’s feet.
Your medical spa in Scottsdale can recommend which procedure is right for you.
What is Involved with the Treatment?
Both Botox and Dysport are treatments performed at your Scottsdale medical spa with little to no recovery time required. Trained medical professionals use a small needle to inject the muscles responsible for creating your wrinkles. The targeted muscles are then unable to contract, so expression lines become less visible.
You can consult with a Scottsdale medical spa to design a customized skin-tightening treatment plan for your needs.
