If you’re concerned about facial wrinkles and folds such as glabella lines (the 11’s), crow’s feet, and forehead lines, Dr. Tansavatdi offers Dysport® treatments at Tansavatdi Facial Plastic Surgery. This is an excellent solution to address signs of aging on the face. 

What is Dysport?

Just like Botox®, Dysport uses botulinum toxin type A to temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles to form. It has been FDA approved since 2009 to minimize facial lines while still allowing patients to use their natural expressions. Dysport is ideal for treating:

  • Lines in the forehead
  • Crow’s feet
  • Wrinkles
  • Glabella lines between the eyes

What are Dysport treatments like?

As with Botox or dermal fillers, Dysport treatments are fairly quick and convenient, with minimal pain and very little downtime. Dysport is administered with injections, so when you arrive for your appointment, you may be given a numbing agent. 

Dr. Tansavatdi is extremely skilled and careful with her injections, and has a full understanding of the structure and anatomy of the human face to inject precisely the right areas. Most patients see results within 2 to 3 days of treatment, and results may last up to four months.

What’s the difference between Dysport and Botox?

Both Dysport and Botox are FDA approved, safe, and effective for all skin types, and they work the same way. The two formulas aren’t identical, but they’re so similar that comparing them is like comparing Coke to Pepsi. Here are the elements that make Dysport and Botox different.

Molecular weight

Dysport and Botox essentially have the same molecular weight—150 kilodaltons—but the protective proteins that surround them have varying weights, making them different. 

Formula and units

Dysport often requires more units than Botox because Dysport’s formula is more diluted than Botox’s formula. This means that Dysport can sometimes be a little more expensive for the same results.

Areas treated

Both Dysport and Botox are great for reducing facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, but one has the advantage over the other in certain areas. Botox is better for smaller areas of concern, such as a stray lone wrinkle, as well as areas with thicker muscles (around the mouth and the glabella lines). This is because Botox’s diffusion rate is lower than Dysport’s. Dysport’s higher diffusion rate makes it better for larger areas, like the forehead, and areas with thinner muscles, such as crow’s feet.

Results and longevity

With Dysport, patients generally see results within 2 to 5 days, whereas with Botox, they see results within 5 to 7 days. Dysport and Botox both require multiple appointments in order to maintain results, and the longevity of both treatments is generally between 3 to 6 months. While this varies from patient to patient, this is the general consensus. 

If you’re unsure which is better for you—Dysport or Botox—Dr Tansavatdi will be happy to assess your aesthetic needs and goals to determine this for you during your consultation. With her years of experience with wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers, she will provide you with expert advice and knowledge of the treatments.
