Botox vs. Dysport in Botox, Cosmetic Treatments.

Whether you want to get rid of the lingering crow’s feet at the side of your eyes, or smooth out forehead wrinkles, anti-wrinkle treatments can be a great way to help you achieve the look you want.

It’s important to consider your options based on the cost, how long each treatment will last, how quickly before you see the changes, and which facial creases you’re looking to treat.

Both Botox and Dysport are safe, effective, nonsurgical methods of temporarily changing the appearance of your face when it comes to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Both treatments use botulinum toxin to reduce muscle activity that can cause facial lines and creases. Thousands of satisfied customers have used Botox or Dysport to boost their self-confidence with real, tangible results.

What’s the Difference Between Dysport and Botox?

These treatments are used to address different cosmetic issues and are recommended for different results. In general, however, medical professionals may advise using one or the other – but not usually both.


Botox is perhaps the most readily identified anti-wrinkle treatment on the market and has become synonymous with the procedure itself. Manufactured by Allergan, Botox has been available since 2000.

These injections can help you achieve a more youthful look as well as provide additional health benefits. When injected in the armpits, Botox can reduce severe sweating. It is also FDA-approved to treat chronic migraine headaches.

You’ll also want to consider how fast you’d like to see results and how long they last. Botox can take up to a full week to see the desired results. Botox injections can typically provide the results you desire for anywhere from 3-6 months.


Dysport is newer to the market than Botox; it received its FDA approval in 2009 and is marketed by Medicis. Dysport can take effect in just 1-2 days after treatment and may last for up to 4 months.

Unlike Botox, which is commonly used to reduce the appearance of a variety of wrinkles of the face (including crow’s feet), Dysport is most often used to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines – which are the vertical lines between the eyebrows, sometimes referred to as the “11s.” These are the wrinkles most noticeable when you are frowning, and sometimes they don’t go away until you have them treated by a cosmetic surgeon.
