Dr. Brandith Irwin:
Welcome to SkinTour. My name is Dr. Brandith Irwin. Our goal is provide expert information unbiased information about skincare. This segment is on the difference between Botox and Dysport. Many of my patients are confused about this. So what I tell them is the difference between the two is really like comparing apples to apples. It’s like the difference between a fuji apple and a gala apple for example. So they’re very similar but they have some very slightly different properties, which an expert injector can use to your advantage.
I should tell you first though that many expert injectors disagree about this. Some expert injectors use only Dysport, some use only botox and some like myself use a combination of the two depending on the situation. So I use mostly Botox but in certain situations I use Dysport because it does diffuse meaning it spreads out a little bit more. And in other situations I prefer Botox because it stays where I put it a little bit better.
There have been a lot of arguments about which one has a faster onset. I think that dysport does by maybe a day or two but when you’re talking about something that you want to last three to six months, a day or two difference in the onset generally doesn’t matter. So in my opinion that’s kind of an argument that we don’t need to go into.
The other thing that people argue a lot about Dysport and Botox is does one last longer in the patient, you, or the other? I think they last pretty much the exact same amount of time. They are injected a similar way so I think that is not a reason to use one or the other as well. They’re very close. Great injectors use both and I think that’s the main thing to remember. So I hope you enjoy your time on SkinTour.
