If you’re tired of trying to hide those pesky lines and wrinkles, you may have considered injectable fillers like Botox to get rid of them. While Botox is still one of the leading facial fillers on the market, its latest competitor Dysport could actually offer some more benefits. Both Botox and Dysport are similar in composition and purpose – they are an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A which helps to relax the muscles and smooth out wrinkles.

Those frown lines on your forehead and wrinkles around your eyes could be giving away your age, but a quick injectable fix could be all you need to restore your youthful looks. Both Dysport and Botox Cosmetic can make those deep grooves and lines on your face disappear for a few months, but each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Both can be administered over your lunch hour, and may be an affordable alternative to other wrinkle-reduction procedures.

If you’ve been thinking about Botox injections to get rid of crow’s feet or deep wrinkles on your forehead, your plastic surgeon or medical aesthetician may have recommended Dysport as an alternative Botox treatment. Dysport gained FDA approval for cosmetic use in July 2009, and has since made its way to hundreds of plastic surgery centers and medical spas around the United States. Some doctors offer Dysport injections at a lower price than Botox, and many simply prefer to use Dysport for treating lines and wrinkles.
