Dysport ™, a botulinum toxin wrinkle-reducer very similar to Botox Cosmetic, was FDA-approved for use in the U.S. in May of 2009 and is available at SKINTASTIC for residents of DFW. Dysport is a common wrinkle treatment throughout Europe and other parts of the world.
While the two are relatively comparable, physicians sometimes prefer one over the other in certain facial areas, due to differences in the onset of results, and spread of effect. Dysport is decidedly slightly faster-acting and has a greater “spread” (giving a more “natural” look); while Botox tends to remain more localized, allowing for greater precision and predictability in the treatment area, but possibly requiring more injections in the course of a treatment.
Jeffrey Adelglass, M.D., F.A.C.S., a cosmetic physician and Medical Director of SKINTASTIC Medical and Surgical Rejuvenation Center of Plano, currently one of the largest injectors of Botox in North Texas and the U.S., says, “the major benefits of Dysport to the cosmetic patient is that there are fewer injections needed in a session.” Dr. Adelglass stresses that “knowing your cosmetic injector has the right credentials and training is especially important with newer treatments such as Dysport”. Botox and Dysport do not have the same per unit dosage, for instance.
