What is Botox?
Botox injection is a popular cosmetic treatment used to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fines in the face, especially in the areas around the forehead and eyes. This treatment was approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002.
How Does Botox Treatment Work?
Derived from C. botulinum bacteria, botox or Botulinum toxin is a form of neurotoxic protein, which is extremely dangerous. But in treatment, an appropriate amount of it is used. When botox is injected, it temporarily paralyzes muscles in that specific area, blocking nerve signals and muscle contractions, thus reducing wrinkles and lines.
Each sitting takes around 30 minutes, and the results can be seen within one to three days. Usually, Botox treatments should be repeated every four to six months to maintain youthfulness. There may be some minor side effects depending on the patient.
What is Dysport?
Like Botox, Dysport is also an effective non-invasive treatment for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, especially for glabellar lines or frown lines, which occur in between the eyebrows. It is also an FDA-approved procedure. This treatment is best suited for patients under the age of 65.
How does Dysport Works?
Dysport or abobotulinum toxin A is also a type of botulinum toxin that relaxes the facial muscles when injected, similar to botox. The effects can be seen within 72 hours or a couple of days, and they will wear off in four to six months.
Botox vs. Dysport: Which One to Go For?
Dysport is considered a European counterpart of botox. The main difference is in the concentration. Dysport is much diluted than botox. So, when it comes to the results, Dysport shows results quicker and also spreads to a large area.
In the case of botox, it is comparatively concentrated and is good for small areas.
You cannot undergo these procedures if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any kind of allergies to Botulinum Type A.
