Botox® is the most popular injectable in the world. Botox® is the only FDA approved cosmetic treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet.


Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles by a medical professional. It is used to temporarily improve the look of people 18 to 65 years of age. When receiving Botox®, a protein called botulinum toxin is injected into the targeted area. It takes anywhere from 3 to 14 days to relax the facial muscles that cause the wrinkling, the result is a softer, more youthful appearance.


Dysport® is a competitor to Botox®. They share the same treatment goal, which is to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines without drastically changing your appearance.


Individuals who want to improve the look of facial wrinkles have access to several medical treatments; however, two of the most common are Botox and Dysport. Both treatments can be used to relax frown lines, rejuvenate the neckline, and even provide a temporary facelift. Both medications are derived from something called botulinum toxin, which is safe when used in small amounts. On the other hand, there are also a few differences. It is these differences that should be able to help people decide which treatment is right for them.


There are a few differences between Botox and Dysport that everyone should note. First, Botox is mainly used to treat Glabellar lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Botox is slightly more expensive, (on average). Botox tends to wear off a bit sooner than Dysport. Botox can also take longer to take effect, averaging around one week to one month after the session. Women who are pregnant and those who take medications for muscle spasticity may not be able to receive Botox.

In contrast, Dysport is usually used to target lines between the eyebrows. The average cost of Dysport is a bit less per visit. Usually, the effects of Dysport show more quickly than Botox, becoming evident after a few days. Results tend to last for three to four months. Individuals who have milk allergies, women who are pregnant, and those who take medications for muscle spasms might not be able to take Dysport.

Botox or Dysport?

Those who want to see immediate results may want to use Dysport instead; however, those who need long-lasting results may want to go with Botox. Also, those who have a milk allergy cannot take Dysport. Dysport is also less expensive.
