I recently heard of an alternative to Botox. I think it was called Dysport. What is this? Is it as effective as Botox and are there any advantages to using it over Botox?
Dysport is the brand name to another neurotoxin that is used to treat the wrinkles in the upper part of the face, such as glabellar lines, the horizontal forehead creases and the crow’s feet. It is somewhat different from Botox, in that it spreads more. We use this property to our advantage by using it in areas where we would like more diffusion, such as in the crow’s feet.
