Is BOTOX® or Dysport® Right for You?

If you say “YES!” to any of the following questions, BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections may be the perfect match for your skin rehab needs:

  • Do frown lines and wrinkles make you look tired and in need of a pick-me-up?
  • Do you notice new lines developing or existing wrinkles deepening?
  • Would you prefer a noninvasive approach to anti-aging?
  • Do vertical frown lines between your eyebrows prematurely add years to your appearance?
  • Do heavy brows make you appear angry?
  • Do you suffer from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the underarms, hands or feet?


Of course you know it as a powerful wrinkle fighter, but did you know that BOTOX® can do a lot more? Watch our own Dr. Gary Motykie on the Marie Show discussing some of the many additional treatment uses for BOTOX®, including excessive sweating, migraines, jaw pain and more.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Fast Facts

  • BOTOX® is an FDA-approved prescription medicine effective for temporarily treating facial lines and wrinkles as well as excessive sweating in the underarms, hands and feet.
  • Treatments are performed in-office and usually take less than 30 minutes. Many women and men schedule their BOTOX® touch-ups over their lunch breaks.
  • Most BOTOX® Cosmetic patients see visible improvements within 3 to 7 days, with results lasting up to 4 months.
  • BOTOX® used for sweating can control excess sweating for over 6 months.
  • Maintenance treatments can help you maintain your results.
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic can be combined with injectable facial fillers for a complete “Liquid Facelift.”

Dysport® Fast Facts

  • Dysport® is also composed of Botulinum Toxin Type A, but is composed of smaller molecules than BOTOX®, so it diffuses more easily across the target areas
  • Although not as well known as BOTOX®, Dysport® also has a long track record of safety and efficacy in reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, and even in preventing the formation of dynamic wrinkles!
  • You should begin to see visible results of your Dysport® injections in 2 to 5 days, compared to 5 to 7 days for BOTOX®.
  • Studies have also shown that Dysport® has greater staying power than other neuromodulators, meaning that you need less treatments over a certain time period.
  • Like BOTOX®, Dysport® offers even more powerful results when combined with other rejuvenation treatments, especially as part of a “Liquid Facelift” with a customized blend of dermal fillers.

Does It Hurt?

Because neuromodulator injections require the use of a needle, we get some patients who are concerned about discomfort. Most of our patients report only minimal discomfort during their BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections. We can provide a topical numbing cream to help those with more sensitive skin feel more comfortable during treatment if needed. Side effects are typically mild, including the possibility of slight pain or irritation and bruising at the injection site. We offer tips for bruising control after treatment (see below). Always follow all of your post-treatment instructions in order to maximize your comfort and decrease the likelihood of complications.

How Does It Work?

Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are made from botulinum toxin, a naturally-occurring organic substance. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals that cause the facial muscles to contract, relaxing facial muscles to help smooth away dynamic facial wrinkles. Neuromodulator injections are a noninvasive approach to reducing the signs of facial aging.

When used as a treatment for excessive underarm sweating, BOTOX® limits nerve responses in the sweat glands, temporarily reducing or eliminating sweat production in the treated area.


Results are visible very soon after treatment, though neither BOTOX® Cosmetic nor Dysport® should radically change your facial appearance or cause the telltale signs of looking frozen or “done.” This beauty enhancing treatment can lift your brows, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, correct frown lines, and achieve many other cosmetic improvements. BOTOX® and Dysport® can provide long-term anti-aging benefits with repeated treatments over time – think of it as non-invasive preventative aging. In order to maintain your results, it’s best to schedule ongoing treatments spaced a few months apart.

For excessive underarm sweating, BOTOX® can achieve a gradual reduction in sweat production, with most of our patients seeing at least a 50% reduction in sweating. We will evaluate your specific condition and recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results.
