Neuromodulators are messengers that are released by neurons to transmit information to other neurons. In the context of dermatology, these substances are used to decrease the contraction of muscles, relaxing them to lessen the visibility of lines and wrinkles on the face.
Both Botox and Dysport are forms of the Botulinum A toxin. These substances are injected to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by blocking acetylcholine, a substance that activates muscles. By blocking acetylcholine using botulinum toxins, the muscles cease to contract, thus making a face smoother and younger-looking.
Although these two substances are used for the same indication, they have a few different characteristics. As per the latest research, Dysport appears to work faster than Botox and produce longer-lasting results than Botox
Dysport kicks in within two days, whereas Botox takes 3-5 days to take effect. Clinical studies showed that Dysport would last 2 or more weeks longer.
Botox effect usually lasts for the 3-4 month, whereas the Dysport effect can last up to 4-6 months in individual patients.
There is such a term called ‘Botox’ which is Botox for men who want to look and feel younger.
After a session, you may experience side effects, but most people can generally go about their usual tasks after. Possible side effects may be the mild pain at the injection site, rash, headache, bruising or temporary drooping of eyelid or eyebrow.
