Dysport Vs. Botox

The expanse of medical beauty treatments has welcomed numerous products to the market in the past decade. In the past, there used to be limited treatment options available to lessen unwanted facial contours, like fine lines and wrinkles, but injectables are now available to target more specific issues. Some, like Botox and Dysport, contain similar active ingredients and might lead you to believe there is no difference between these products. However, a consultation with a physician can help you understand each injectable in-depth to help you make an informed decision on which option might be best for you. 

Active Ingredients

Both Botox and Dysport use proteins and other components from the substance botulinum toxin. It is created by the same microbe that causes botulism, which has been linked to paralysis. As a result, the toxin can be used to block certain signals in human nerves, causing them to relax instead of contract. The chemical signals of these nerves are not permanently altered, and the presence of these injectables will lessen over a few months time. If you are wondering how long Dysport lasts vs. how long Botox lasts, both treatments tend to show results for between three to four months.

The Difference Between Dysport and Botox

Since both injectables contain botulinum toxin, you might wonder, are Botox and Dysport the same? In some ways, yes, but these products are not made of the same ingredients. Their trace proteins and manufacturing processes differ, thus producing two similar yet different injectables. Additionally, both these treatments are approved by Health Canada for different uses. For example, Botox is currently approved for the treatments of upper facial rhytides, including forehead, lateral canthus, and glabellar lines.

If you are interested in learning more about these injectable treatments, we recommend reaching out to our clinic to set up a free consultation appointment. We can assess which option might be best for your needs during that time and further discuss possible results.

What to Expect During Your Concept Medical Botox Appointment

At Concept Medical, our Botox injection treatments are administered by physicians who are deeply experienced in these products and have a vast knowledge of facial shapes and contours. We primarily provide this treatment option to serve our patients best. In addition, our team will only book an appointment for a potential client after our consultations confirm they are a good candidate for this procedure.

Once you arrive, you’ll be welcomed by our staff. We’ll take the time to discuss any details and further answer any questions you may have. Perhaps the longest part of your appointment will be the application and drying of our topical numbing cream. From there, each unit of Botox takes only a few minutes to administer. 

Once complete, we will ask you to stay back for a short period of time to ensure that we can monitor the immediate effects on your skin. We will offer you take-home advice and tips after your procedure and can book your follow-up appointment should you be interested.

At Concept Medical, we form long-standing and caring relationships with our patients. Our team is actively knowledgeable about each procedure we do, and they are happy to help with any questions or concerns you may have. We employ the latest techniques to ensure our clients are content while visiting our clinic, and all of our injectables are strictly performed by our licensed and experienced physicians.
