Dysport or Botox

You can moisturize twice a day and chew all the collagen gummies you want. But there’s only one surefire, non-surgical way to make to stops the signs of aging in their tracks: injectables.


Both Botox and Dysport are safe, clinically effective treatments for wrinkles. They’re both a type of botulinum toxin injection, and they offer very similar benefits. If you’re wondering whether to choose Botox or Dysport, you might think: is there even a difference? Here’s what you need to know before your consultation.

Why Choose Dysport?

The big difference between Botox and Dysport is that Dysport uses smaller-sized molecules. The smaller molecules mean your Dysport dosage may:


  • Start to work quicker
  • Spread to a wider area
  • Dissipate faster


As a result, you may need more sessions in quick succession when you choose Dysport than you may need with Botox.


At the same time, these qualities can also make Dysport better suited to certain problem areas. For example, if you’re considering whether to choose Dysport vs. Botox for crow’s feet, then you might opt for Dysport. Dysport diffuses across larger areas, which makes it better suited to issues like crow’s feet.


The same effect can also make Dysport better suited for horizontal forehead lines.

Why Choose Botox?

Botox is the original wrinkle buster, and for a long time, it didn’t have much competition. Even now, people refer to almost all injections targeting wrinkles as ‘Botox’ because they’re so familiar with the brand name.


If you have the option between Botox or Dysport, you might stick to Botox for hyper-target areas, such as the 11 lines (the furrow between your eyebrows).


However, as with Dysport, the impact of Botox always depends on the technique used by your provider.

Why Your Provider Matters More than Your Product

Ultimately, the differences between Botox or Dysport are very nuanced. What’s more, there are still clinical trials trying to nail down exactly how they differ. The most crucial aspect of your decision is unlikely to fall on what product you choose. Instead, the person who injects it is far more critical. Getting the results you want isn’t up to the product – both are up to the job. It all comes down to technique, and that’s up to your provider.


You should always choose a clinic staffed by licensed medical professionals with years of experience in cosmetic medicine.

Should I Choose Botox or Dysport?

Botox or Dysport: that’s the question. The answer is: it depends. The two anti-aging treatments work so similarly and that makes both effective for most uses.


The only way to make a firm decision is to sit down for a skin analysis and discuss your desired results with an expert. After all, the product you choose matters less than the professional you want to help you achieve your skincare goals.
