What’s the Difference Between Botox and Dysport?
I’ve been hearing this question a lot lately. Botox and Dysport are almost the same. It’s like comparing a Gala apple to a Fuji apple. They have slightly different properties but the differences are minimal.
I generally prefer to work with Botox. I find it more precise because it diffuses less. The slight increase in diffusion with Dysport can be an advantage in some areas though – like in a man with a very large, active forehead. Sometimes I use Botox in one area and Dysport in another on same person. There are excellent doctors who prefer Dysport and get excellent results. Bottom line – go with what your doctor is most comfortable with on this one.
