The anti-wrinkle treatment Dysport works better than its older, more popular rival, Botox, at least on certain parts of the face.When contracting the muscles on their faces after a cosmetic … patients and doctors commented that Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) fared better .

Dysport is another type of injection (similar to Botox) used in our Philadelphia office that utilizes a modified strain of botulism to smooth away unwanted lines and wrinkles — without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial areas still work normally, so you will experience a lessening of lines and wrinkles, while still being able to easily show facial expressions.

How is Dysport different than Botox?

Dyport is the #1 competitor to Botox, and works quite similarly with only a few distinctions:

  • Dysport is reported to have a quicker onset than Botox (2-3 days versus up to 14-days)
  • Dysport is reported to a longer duration
  • Dysport provides a more expressive looking result. (While still erasing unwanted lines and wrinkles, Dysport results are more natural and relaxed looking, as opposed to the perfectly smooth, frozen result that Botox can achieve. (Either result is purely up to your preference ? a lot of patients want perfect [Botox], and a lot of patients want improved-but-natural [Dysport].)

How does Dysport work?

Dysport injections work by temporarily blocking the signals between muscle and nerve. When the muscles in your forehead are prevented from moving, the skin on top is able to lie smooth and wrinkle-free.
