Question: How does Dysport compare to Botox? Do they perform the same and last the same amount of time?
Answer: Overall Dysport and Botox are extremely similar in their performance and longevity. At this point in time, I have personally not seen any good study to show a significant difference between in the two products in their longevity or in their onset of action. At this point in time, I intend to use either product, mainly based on the patient’s preference if there is one. Frequently, the companies that make Botox and Dysport will provide rebates for the patients that can give them a monetary advantage of one over the other; otherwise, I find that they are very similar products.
