The Difference Between Botox and Dysport

While both Botox and Dysport use the same medication, the size of the molecules in the solution is significantly different; Dysport contains comparatively smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A. There are far more similarities between the products than there are unique traits. However, there are a handful of key differences worth noting, including:

  • Dysport spreads easier and affects a large area. This can be an advantage or disadvantage, depending on the issue being treated.
  • Both injections must typically be administered two to four times per year.
  • Dysport begins working slightly faster, and onset takes about two to five days, while Botox takes four to seven days to set in.
