In the U.S., Botox has been King-of-the-Hill for fighting facial lines and wrinkles for 20 years. A new contender, used successfully for years in Europe, looks like it’s about to give Botox a run for its money! Called Dysport (pronounced “diss-port”) this slightly different formulation of botulinum toxin type A was recently approved by the FDA, and reportedly works faster and lasts longer than Botox. It may be better for those who have become too tolerant to Botox, and personally, I think it allows for a finer degree of sculpting in the area. (In some instances may save you some money, since the dosage is not 0ne-for-one between the two.)
I recently had a question come into the website about Dysport, and since it’s becoming a very popular beauty and anti-aging topic, I’ve given a more detailed answer in an “Ask Dr. Berger” video.
