Dysport is a new wrinkle relaxer that was recently approved by the FDA. Similar to Botox, Dysport is purified botulinum toxin. It works like Botox by preventing the contraction of muscles that create wrinkles in the overlying skin. Like Botox, Disport can be used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet.
However, Dysport is not exactly the same as Botox. The subtle differences between Botox and Dysport, such as how long the treatments last, remain to be discovered.
Dysport’s advantages may include:
- Faster onset of action
- Smoother results
Dysport has been used for many years in other countries for cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes and rigorously studied before approval to be sure it’s safe.
