What Is The Difference Between Botox And Dysport
Dysport and Botox: This is not unlike asking what is the difference between anacin and bufferin. Both contain Aspirin as the active ingredient but may have other minor differences. Botox and Dysport both contain botulinum toxin as the primary component with minor chemical differences and binding proteins. Botox has human Albumin and Dysport contains cow milk protein. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is botox better than dysport? I was looking into getting injections, and there seem to be a ton to pick from. I'd like to know what the difference between botox and dysport is, and whether one is clearly better than the other. Or, is there some other bran
Botox : Botox and Dysport work similarly to reduce wrinkles by relaxing some facial muscles. Both are given via injections in the office and anesthesia is usually not required. Most plastic surgeons or dermatologist primarily use botox, since it's been in available for a much longer period. Dysport is a relatively new alternative for wrinkle reduction. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a specialist help determine appropriate options for you. Best of luck. Dr. Chaboki. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What's the difference between dysport and botox? I understand they both use the botulinum toxin. So how is dysport different?
Botox : Botox and Dysport are two brands of the same product. Both are derived from the same subtype of botulinum toxin. Dysport may set up a little faster, but essentially they are equally effective. Small variations my be found from person to person. I have some patients who one will work for better than the other, but for most people the differences are not noticeable. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Do botox treat sweating of forehead ? & the difference between it & restylan & juvederm -xiomin & dysport
Botulism vs Fillers?: The 3 botulism products - BOTOX, DYSPORT, XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxin a) - are used to paralyze the action of muscles temporarily. Additional effects are to decrease the sweating effect. While HA fillers - Restylane & Juvederm - are filling injections for wrinkles and slight contour deformities.

Is dysport just a competitor of botox? Is dysport just exactly the same thing as botox but a competing company?
Very similar: Both drugs work exactly the same by blocking connection between motor nerves and muscles. Studies have not shown any statistical differences in longevity (3-4 months) or effectiveness. They are made by competing companies. My advice: go with an experienced injector at a reasonable cost. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Similar Results: In my experience, both give very similar results. I've had some patients say that Dysport is a bit more natural (i.e. less "frozen") than Botox. Dysport also comes on faster (3-5 days instead of 7-10 with Botox.) I have quite a few patients who request Dysport over Botox and I prefer it when I treat my own lines. FYI you can get a really great deal on Dysport right now with Aspire. (google it) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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?
Totally allergic to Botox. Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a) and Dysport, after having used it with no problems for about 5 years
I will gladly pay AFTER having found a solution?
Consult allergist: Although I am not aware of any study on desensitizing one to these medications, theoretically it can be attempted by an allergist just prior to the procedure if the reaction was not an anaphylactic one. One may also consider premedication with prednisone and antihistamine. Since this is a cosmetic procedure, the hassle may not be worth it. Talk to a plastic surgeon for alternate options. ...Read more
