LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2015) - BOTOX® Cosmetic, which is manufactured by Allergan, was FDA-approved in 2002 for the treatment of frown lines, and Dysport®, which is manufactured by Medicis, was FDA-approved in 2009 for the same purpose. These two popular cosmetic injectables can reduce the appearance of common signs of aging along the upper face, and many patients are eager to better understand the benefits of each product, explains Mary Sullivan-Bryan, RN, CANS, a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist in Las Vegas. As a result, she says she strives to educate individuals on the similarities and differences between these methods to help them make well-informed decisions about their facial rejuvenation options.

The most common question patients ask, Mary Sullivan-Bryan reveals, is what is the difference between BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®? In response, she explains that the two products share many features, beginning with the composition, which is comprised primarily of botulinum toxin Type A. This ingredient is designed to diminish muscle activity in the treated area, she informs, reducing the intensity of contractions that typically lead to wrinkles. She also indicates that the two injectables can be used to address similar concerns, including forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. However, she admits that there are notable distinctions too. They each feature a singular protein structure, she begins, and results may be visible faster following Dysport® injections than with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Additionally, she says that some studies have shown that the effects of Dysport® may last longer than BOTOX® Cosmetic, though not to a significant degree. For these reasons, she recommends that individuals speak with an extensively trained nurse injector before considering treatment, as the two methods are not interchangeable.

Ultimately, Mary Sullivan-Bryan explains that both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® can offer excellent, natural-looking rejuvenating effects on the upper face, and that finding the product that best suits the unique anatomic needs and expressed goals of the patient is the primary concern when administering any cosmetic injectable.
