Botox and Dysport Compared

Botox Cosmetic has been safely used for more than 20 years and creates a smooth, relaxed appearance to forehead lines, frown lines and crows feet.  At CVL, we have found Botox Cosmetic to be an excellent treatment that lives up to its claims. Dysport is the same form of botulinum toxin - Type A - and has been used in Europe for more than 15 years.

One of the exciting features of Dysport is that it takes effect more quickly than Botox, with visible results in as few as one to two days, versus three to five with Botox. This may be a deciding factor if you want to look good for an upcoming event and time is a consideration. The cost of the two treatments is equivalent but may vary depending on current rebates.

Many of our patients are giving Dysport a try to see if it has any advantages for them. The bottom line is that both of these products provide excellent improvement in diminishing lines with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Our CVL patients have the opportunity to find out for themselves, since we proudly offer both of these products.
