While your facial expressions help you communicate emotions, they can also cause lines and wrinkles. Botox® and Dysport® relax these lines so that you look younger and more refreshed. While these products work the same way, they have some differences that make one better than the other depending on the use.
What are Botox® and Dysport®?
Both products are muscle relaxers that use botulinum toxin A to quiet muscle activity. While they have a very similar formula, each has a different protein attached. This makes Dysport® a slightly smaller molecule than Botox®. Both treat lines and wrinkles caused by facial muscles. Botox® was the first FDA-approved botulinum product. It is the only one approved for medical uses such as muscle spasms and hyperhidrosis.
