does dysport last longer than botox? i've heard that dysport contains less proteins for the body to react to, and that means it should last longer. is that right?

No: I've had a few patients report that they felt that Dysport lasted longer than botox. But there have been no studies that have validated this finding.

The: The results for Botox or Dysport are different for different patients. But there is no scientific validity to the statement that Dysport should last more than botox. They are both approved by the fda for the same amount of time.
