    Re: What are the differences between Botox and Dysport?

    Botox and Dysport are both injectable toxins. Both contain a form of botulinum, a toxinthat paralyzes the muscles. They both function by blocking signals from the brain that instruct muscles to contract.
    When carefully injected into specific muscles, Botox and Dysport can cause areas on the body (especially the face) to relax, thus smoothing out surface wrinkles caused by muscle movement.

    There are, however, differences between the two injectables.
    First is price. Dysport is not as powerful per unit as Botox. This means that to get the same wrinkle reducing effect, a practitioner must inject 2.5 units of Dysport for every unit of Botox. If, for example, a doctor would use 20 units of Botox to paralyze a wrinkle, she would opt for 50 units of Dysport. Because Dysport is still relatively new to the U.S. market, its manufacturer, Medicis, sometimes offers price promotions.

    Both Botox (onabotulinumtoxin A) and Dysport (abobotulinumtoxin A) are forms of botulinum toxin A. They both both FDA-approved therapeutic muscle-relaxing agents that target the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles. For the most part, they can be used interchangeably if equivalent dosages (usually one unit of Botox to three units of Dysport) are used.
