BOTOX® Cosmetic has become a household cosmetic term and the go-to facial rejuvenation treatment. It has saturated our lives to the point where just the term BOTOX has become the generic term for a facial wrinkle treatment. And, it can be obtained just about anywhere. Unfortunately, BOTOX frequently is administered by poorly supervised nurse injectors at day spas, by dentists, or even at house parties. We have probably all laughed as the sitcom has poked fun at the person with a frozen “BOTOX smile.”
In the right hands, BOTOX is very effective and can produce wonderful results. But, as time passes and medical science advances, anti-aging treatments continue to improve. I have found something better than BOTOX for my Coeur d’Alene patients: Dysport®.
What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator similar to BOTOX in molecular structure and application. It is simply made by a different company. The difference is Dysport lasts longer, acts faster, and best of all costs less.
Which is better, Dysport or BOTOX?
My patients who have tried Dysport are not going back to BOTOX. Across the board, patients who have taken the Dysport challenge like it better than BOTOX. The correct placement of the right amount of Dysport creates wonderful results in raising brows, smoothing frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. And when combined with dermal fillers, it offers comprehensive rejuvenation as part of a liquid facelift.
Also, Dysport is designed to not change the look of your whole face. Our approach is to create a younger look without looking plastic, frozen, or artificial, making others wonder if you’ve lost weight, are happier, or are just well-rested. The untreated areas of your face remain unaffected, so your laugh and smile look like your normal laugh and smile.
Should BOTOX and Dysport be done by a doctor?
At Advanced Aesthetics, Dysport treatments are performed and supervised by myself, Dr. Kevin Johnson, a board-certified surgeon with a particular focus on cosmetic medicine and cosmetic surgery. Learn more about why using a skilled injector is important in our related blog post.
