Botox vs. Dysport for Elimination of Forehead Wrinkles – Which is Better?

Featured Image

Both Botox and Dysport are Neurotoxins. What is a Neurotoxin?

Neurotoxins are naturally occurring of synthetic substances which alter the structure or function of the central nervous system. While the word “toxin” generally is something we try to avoid, scientists and clinicians have found an amazing array of positive uses for neurotoxins.

There are many common neurotoxins outside of the Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin varieties you’ll often find at medical spas like Forever Slender MedSpa. Learn why forehead wrinkles appear here. 

Neurotoxins you haven’t thought about before:

• Ethanol (Your Friday night margarita)

• Lead (Lead poisoning from paint and old gas)

• Glutamate (Important for brain functions but bad when too much)

• Nitric Oxide (Essential for overall health but can cause migraines)

• Tetanus Toxin (Remember your tetanus shot? It prevents nervous system disease)

• Tetrodotoxin (Puffer fish) 

Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA)

The industry standard, Botox first received FDA approval in 1989. All neurotoxins work to stop muscular contraction. When used to stop forehead wrinkles, Botox will be injected into the frontalis muscle. Since 2002, over 100 million vials of Botox have been sold in the United States and it is approved for moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles. 

The amazing medical team at Forever Slender MedSpa has used Botox for years to eliminate wrinkles forehead lines, crow’s feet (around the eyes) and frown lines. Botox is more potent than other neurotoxins, making it great for crow’s feet and other small areas.

Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) 

A comparatively newer kid on the neurotoxin block, Dysport also has a ton of clinical usage after receiving FDA approval in 2009. Dysport had been approved in Europe for years before that and is now approved in 69 countries with 25 years of clinical experience around the world.

Dysport is different from Botox, with a slightly lower viscosity formulation, enabling it to spread more evenly over larger areas. This formulation makes it an ideal alternative for the larger forehead wrinkle areas, ensuring a smooth finish. Dysport results generally appear in 2-3 days, a bit faster than Botox results. While results always vary amongst individuals, Dysport results can remain up to five months, longer than the three months typical while using Botox.
