Because of its long history of success and ease of treatment, Botox is chosen by millions of women and men around the world.
As a cosmetic injectable, Dysport® reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles and restores a youthful appearance by treating specific wrinkle-causing muscles in the face. Although it is derived from the same substance as BOTOX® Cosmetic, it is formulated differently.

Benefits Of Dysport
Dysport offers you the following benefits compared with BOTOX® Cosmetic:
Increasing the area of effect, allowing for wider spaces between injection sites
In most cases, neuromodulators are a quick, easy procedure that takes just a few minutes and produces lasting results.
Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport involve only a slight pinching sensation from the needle. If that is a concern for you, we can provide additional comfort measures during your neuromodulator procedure. Ice packs can numb your skin before and after the procedure.
It is possible to use neurotoxins, also known as neuromuscular toxins, to prevent wrinkles from forming due to repetitive muscle movements, and to smooth wrinkles that may appear as a result of natural aging. Neurotoxins relax muscles that cause wrinkles and lines on the face. By ensuring consistent neurotoxin touch-ups and follow-ups every 3-6 months, less neurotoxin may be required each time.
Like any cosmetic injection treatment, there can be some localized effects at the injection site. These effects can include redness, swelling, bleeding or bruising. These effects are usually mild, short-lived and self-limiting, usually disappearing after a few days.
Some patients have reported having flu-like symptoms after their Botox injections, including headaches, fatigue and muscle pain. There are also some reports of dry mouth, dry eyes and droopy eyelids. Although these adverse effects are rare.
