Botox® and Dysport® are two different brand names of the injectable drug Botulinum Toxin A. Both Botox® and Dysport® have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles and other health ailments in the U.S.
According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons,® Botulinum Toxin A is by far the most common minimally-invasive, cosmetic procedure their patients request—with 7.4 million procedures performed in 2018.*
Over time, contraction of the facial muscles, sun exposure, and the natural decline of skin elasticity and collagen can lead to facial wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX® and Dysport® are commonly used to minimize the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
