A Comparison of Botox and Dysport at New Leaf Restorative Medicine

If you’re looking for a way to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet on your face, then you’ve probably heard of both Botox and Dysport. But what are the differences between these two popular injectables? At New Leaf, we specialize in helping our clients make the right choice for their skin. Let’s take a look at some of the key differences between Botox and Dysport.

The Science of Botox and Dysport

Both Botox and Dysport contain botulinum toxin type A, which is a protein that helps to relax the muscles in your face by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. This prevents wrinkles from forming when you move your facial muscles—what we refer to as dynamic wrinkles. So although both treatments use similar science, there are important distinctions between them.

Botox was approved by the FDA in 2002 and is made from botulinum toxin type A produced by Allergan Pharmaceuticals. It has been used for over 20 years for cosmetic purposes and is one of the most commonly used injectables on the market today. On average, Botox lasts about three months before it needs to be re-injected.

Dysport was approved by the FDA in 2009 and is also made from botulinum toxin type A and is produced by Galderma Laboratories. It works similarly to Botox but can often spread out further than just one area due to its finer particles which means it can cover more surface area with less product. This makes it a great choice for treating larger areas such as frown lines or forehead wrinkles without having to use more product than necessary. Plus, Dysport results usually last up to four months before needing to be re-injected again so it has a longer duration than some other injectables too!
