Is Dysport Like Botox?

Is Dysport Like Botox?

If you are looking for an efficient wrinkle-remover, botox tops the list, because it can certainly give you smoother, younger-looking skin. Although botox is popular and widely used, dysport is another anti-wrinkle product that is now often recommended as an alternative to botox. But is dysport like botox.

Is dysport like botox?

Overall dysport and botox are very similar. They are both wrinkle removers that are made of botulinum toxin type A, which is an injectable neurotoxin.

Dysport and botox both temporarily soften dynamic wrinkles, which are formed as a result of repetitive muscle movement. Expressions such as squinting, laughing, and frowning cause certain facial muscles to contract, resulting in frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. These are the lines that dysport and botox target.

How dysport and botox work

Dysport and botox work by blocking the release of chemical messengers from the nerves that signal the muscles to contract, thereby reducing muscle movement. Due to the limited muscle movement in the treated area, the wrinkles that appear when the muscles contract become less visible over time.

How long do the effects last?

Dysport and botox last an average of 3-4 months.

Differences between dysport and botox

Although dysport is a lot like botox, there are some differences between the two. Dysport spreads further than botox, so in some instances it may take fewer injections to achieve the desired results. In addition, dysport contains smaller molecules than botox, so it is absorbed more quickly, and therefore has a faster onset time (learn more).

How long does it take to see results with microneedling?

How long does it take to see results with microneedling?

Is your skin looking lackluster? Do you have fine lines and wrinkles that you would like to minimize? If you answered yes to these questions, microneedling may be the right treatment for you. Microneedling is a safe, non-irritating treatment that can address a variety of skin concerns. But how long does it take to see results with microneedling.

What is microneedling and how does it work?

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure in which a small device is used to create micro injuries in the skin, which stimulate cellular renewal.

The micro-channels trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response causing the cells to regenerate, and new, fresh collagen to develop. The new skin cells restore the youthful glow of the skin, and the additional collagen makes it plumper and firmer.

Most patients need at least 3 treatments to get maximum results with microneedling.

How long does it take to see results with microneedling?

After a microneedling session the skin will be slightly red and swollen for approximately 2-3 days. It usually takes about 7 days to see real improvement in the tone and texture of the skin. However, the process of building new collagen takes time, so it will take several weeks to see the best results.
