Dysport San Francisco
Dysport consists of the same basic ingredient as Botox which is Botlulinum Toxin A.
How does Dysport compare to Botox? Since the active ingredients are the same, the products are very similar but not identical. In a recent study, Dysport was shown to last for an equal duration but was shown to spread farther than Botox when injected.
This can be both an advantage and disadvantage to the patient depending on which muscle group is targeted. In large muscles such as the forehead, you want the toxin to spread whereas in small muscles you do not want it to spread because it could affect neighboring muscles unfavorably.
Some doctors report that Dysport starts working faster and lasts longer, of course Allergan (who makes Botox) says that Dysport does not work as well.
With another alternative to Botox, patients are hoping that this will lead to lower prices. Allergan may choose to drop the price of Botox to compete with lower costing Dysport.
Medicis Corporation also makes Restalyne and Perlane, which are very popular hyaluranic fillers.
