Those of you who have read my previous blogs know I prefer Dysport over Botox. I cited many advantages including rapid onset, more natural look, more spreading of product over crow’s feet area and lower cost as reasons.
A new study released this month by Dr Rubin of Beverly Hills ,California published in Cosmetic Dermatology actually reported a head to head comparison of Dysport to Botox. Here is what was found:
Most patients reported they didn’t perceive a difference between Botox and Dysport. Among participants who expressed a preference for one product over the other, preferred Dysport. Their reasons were: “Onset of visible effects, overall improvement of skin quality in the treatment areas and a soft, smoother more natural look and smoother texture.”
While I always tell my patients my findings are anecdotal (ie my own experience) it will be nice to now quote the above article from a peer to peer journal.
