Similarities and Differences Between Dysport and Botox

You may be familiar with Botox, however, its emerging cousin treatment is not as well known. But it should be! Dysport has many similarities to Botox, as well as some distinguishing differences from it. Many men and women in Beverly Hills that are considering Botox need to get to know its cousin Dysport before finalizing their decision.

Similarly to Botox, Dysport is a neuromuscular blocking toxin. Muscles that are injected with Dysport are consequently paralyzed, giving them a more relaxed look.

Upon injection, Dysport will spread more than Botox. This will require fewer injections and makes Dysport more ideal when treating larger parts of the body like the under arms or the forehead.  Fewer injections directly result in less swelling and discomfort to the patient. In the wrong hands this spreading can be a bad thing, and can lead to Dysport spreading to unwanted areas. This is why choosing a skilled and qualified injector like Dr. Hovsepian in Beverly Hills is imperative.

Fewer antibodies will form against your Dysport injection because it is a less protein-dense substance than Botox.  Antibodies attack and destroy foreign proteins, so, inevitably, Dysport should last much longer than its cousin treatment. More units of Dysport are typically used for any given treatment, but Dysport is still cheaper than Botox.

The most important factors when considering any cosmetic procedure is the surgeon and practice you choose to perform it. Electing to have your Dysport treatment done at a Beverly Hills med-spa is a terrible idea, and could result in a horrific result.
