Is Dysport or Botox a better option for patients in and near New Orleans, LA?By Dr. Mary Lupo
DifferencesWe are committed to excellence in every aspect of our practice. If one of these products were clearly superior, we would use it exclusively. We offer both Botox and Dysport because they are both excellent products.
The most significant difference between the formulas is dilution. Botox is much more concentrated, so it takes fewer units per treatment area. However, the price per unit of Dysport is lower, making the products comparable. Generally, Dysport and Botox are likely to have identical benefits. However, each person’s body is unique. Some patients have expressed a personal preference for one or the other, based on their own observations of results.
SimilaritiesThere are far more similarities than differences between Botox and Dysport. They are neuromodulators, which reduce nerve signals controlling muscles. These formulas only affect the exact area of the injection, and the degree of muscle relaxation is proportionate with the amount of medication delivered. A skilled and experienced dermatologist, such as the team at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, can achieve precision results, relaxing rigid muscles without causing a frozen or inflexible appearance. Sometimes our goal is simply to lift the brows and not reduce expression.
Neuromodulators can achieve wonderful results, but they are only effective for a specific type of wrinkles. Often, neuromodulators are used in conjunction with treatments such as dermal fillers for comprehensive anti-aging. The most important variables are the scientific knowledge and artistic skill of the injecting dermatologist.
The best way to learn about the benefits of Botox or Dysport treatment is to experience it for yourself. Call (504) 777-3047 today and schedule an appointment at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology.
