Botox VS. Dysport…what’s the difference, and what’s better?

Would you like a Coca-Cola or a Pepsi?  Because when it comes down to it, the difference between these two products are slight.

I’m going to make this a quick one, I’m not an expert…I mean, I am at getting botulism injected into various parts of my face.


Dysport is slightly cheaper-it sets WAY faster.  If you’re going to a swank party and need to look youthful ASAP.  Have your doctor slap some Arnica on your skin (this prevents bruising).  The first time I had it done, my forehead was almost completely immobile within 24 hours.  Magical!

BUT, it seemed to have worn off faster.  I went back for Botox about six weeks later and got a nice little touch up, I didn’t need a lot since there was some Dysport still floating around.


Botox costs more, but not by much, and although it takes up to three days to settle, I believe it lasts longer.

BOTH are botulism type A proteins.  Just like Coke and Pepsi are both sodas, you may just prefer the taste and the after effects of one over the other.  It works differently on each individual based on how your body reacts to it…SO!

This is just my opinion that I’ve based on experience.  I am NOT a medical professional.

This is my informative piece of vanity news this week.  Enjoy and more to come soon.

As always I go to Fountain Medical Spa for all of my beauty treatments that involve needles, facials, etc…
