The Difference Between Dysport And Botox.
So, how does Dysport compare with Botox? Some medical professionals feel that Dysport works faster, and may provide longer correction. Others conclude there is little difference and that the two products are fairly comparable. Yet, most medical professionals agree that there are certain differences in the size of the toxin molecule and that Dysport is a bit trickier to use than Botox. That’s where it pays to work with an expert injector like Lisa Topham. Topham received extensive training in 2009 with Dysport expert and injector Dr. Michael Fiorello, and has been finessing her technique with it ever since.
After 14 years on the market, Botox is one of the safest and most widely used injectables to smooth out facial wrinkles. The key is to see a trained and experience injection specialist who knows the intricacies of the facial anatomy. LEARN MORE ABOUT BOTOX
In the same way that Botox treats hyperactive muscles that cause wrinkling, so does this latest injectable, with the use of an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent to relax facial muscles that cause frowns and lines. Dysport has been used successfully around the world, and was FDA-approved in April 2009. It is currently Botox’s only competitor on the market. LEARN MORE ABOUT DYSPORT
There is another way to use , it’s called minitox. Essentially, the injector dilutes the Dysport and injects it directly into the skin of the neck, cheeks, and around the mouth to smooth out the skin vs. muscle. There is a “shrink-wrap” effect. Minitox is also used frequently around the décolletage to smooth out wrinkles around the chest area. Interestingly, This treatment is also quite effective for Rosacea, enlarged pores, and acne.
