With the emergence of so many FDA-approved anti-aging injectables out there, it can be hard for the average person to determine what’s right for them. While there are some great options when it comes to dermal fillers, for our purposes today, we’re going to focus solely on neurotoxin injectables. Neurotoxins are designed to address lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we regularly perform both Botox and Dysport injections for men and women of all ages. Depending on your individual needs, you may be better suited for one over the other. After a careful skincare analysis, we’ll speak with you about all of your options in-depth.
Botox Vs. Dysport
Botox and Dysport are comprised of the same main active ingredient; botulinum toxin type A. Both of the injectables come with a slightly different formulation and have unique benefits. Take a look at our up-close comparison to help you on the right path towards deciding which injectable might be best for achieving your short and long-term goals.
Botox Vs. Dysport: Treatment Areas
When used for cosmetic applications, Botox and Dysport are typically done to address dynamic wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. Dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements can be minimized and even prevented with the right dosages.
- Dysport: This neurotoxin-based injectable is highly spreadable and is primarily used for glabella lines between the eyebrows. Dysport is FDA-approved for moderate to severe concerns.
- Botox: In addition to glabella lines, Botox is FDA-approved to treat forehead lines as well as crow’s feet.
Botox also has a variety of medical indications including chronic migraines, excessive sweating, and certain neurological conditions.
Botox Vs. Dysport: Initial Results
When it comes to initial results, Dysport takes the lead. The majority of patients can expect to see results in about 3-8 days following their Dysport appointment. Results from Botox can also take 3-8 days. An optimal outcome for both Botox and Dysport will become evident in 2-weeks.

Botox Vs. Dysport Which is Right for You?
There is no catch-all injectable that’s going to be a good fit for every person. Both Botox and Dysport have advantages. Botox is a well-known injectable that offers medical applications but Dysport may yield better results for certain individuals. The best thing you can do when choosing an anti-aging injectable is to opt for a skilled provider.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, our injector specialists know the ins and outs of each treatment and can help determine your candidacy during your initial consult. Whichever injectable you choose, our staff has the knowledge and experience necessary to provide optimal outcomes with precision placement.
The staff is great, and Trish is amazing!! I had never had Botox or fillers before, but after meeting and speaking with Trish, I was at ease. She did an amazing job on both my Botox and fillers! No bruising or swelling! I think and have been told I look 30 again! Will definitely be coming back and telling all my friends! Thanks so much for making me look younger and feel better about my appearance!!
