Botox vs Dysport: options for wrinkle reduction in Los Angeles
Dysport recently became available in the United States for treatment of facial wrinkles. Dysport (abobotulinum A toxin) has been widely used in Europe. Its mechanism of action is the same as that of Botox. The onset of action appears to be a few days earlier than Botox. Although there are claims that Dysport lasts longer, this remains to be seen as it has only been used here since July 2009. Both products are effective at reducing frown lines, forehead lines, and wrinkles on the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet).
