How to Treat Wrinkles: Dysport® vs BOTOX® Cosmetic

Jun 20, 2019 @ 10:00 AM — by Richard Moore, M.D.

As we get older, wrinkles become almost impossible to avoid. There is, however, something you can do to get rid of them. At The Lifestyle Center, we recommend treating them with Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic. These are two FDA-approved treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by diminishing the movement of the underlying muscles. Want to find out how years of age will vanish in a matter of days? Read on to learn more about treating wrinkles with Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Similar Treatments

When we smile, frown, or even squint, muscle contractions take place under our skin. Wrinkles will then form after enough of these occur. Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are both commonly used to treat:

  • Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow's feet
  • Forehead lines

Different Makeup

Wrinkles can also form from overexposure to the sun or long periods of time spent in water. Their sizes will vary, which is why it’s important to choose the right treatment. The main difference between Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic is protein. Dysport® is created from a smaller protein, allowing it to spread out from the injection site an average of 3 centimeters. BOTOX® Cosmetic has a larger protein and spreads an average of 1 centimeter from the site.

Results That Matter

The extremity and type of wrinkles will determine the number of injections you receive. The results from your treatment will be visible within 10 to 14 days of treatment, lasting around 3 to 4 months. Due to the larger spread of Dysport®, the end result is a softer, less frozen appearance than BOTOX® Cosmetic. Since both are safe and affordable, you can feel confident in returning to work or celebrating with a night out following your treatment.

What to Expect

Your treatment generally takes only a few minutes to perform and generally does not require any numbing due to the extremely small gauge needles that are used to perform the injections. In addition to offering treatments with BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, The Lifestyle Center offers a complimentary skin analysis that helps us to develop a treatment plan to correct your appearance as well as a long-term maintenance plan for maintaining beautiful glowing skin.
