You don’t want wrinkles but you don’t want to look frozen. With precisely performed Botox and Dysport treatments, Dr. Peter Vitulli helps Jupiter, FL patients achieve the natural look they desire. These treatments address unwanted lines and wrinkles to decrease the signs of aging without changing the look or movement of the face.

When it comes to Botox and Dysport, many people wonder which is the best for wrinkle reduction. The bottom line is that it can be a matter of personal preference for the patient or the physician injecting the product. Although there are a few differences, the two products are quite similar.

Botox and Dysport similarities

Both products are FDA-approved neuromodulators. They are forms of botulinum toxin type A which is safely and effectively used to relax muscles and decrease movement. Botox and Dysport use the same mechanism of action in the muscle. The muscle tissue relaxes and is prevented from responding to nerve impulses that control muscle contraction.

Smiling, frowning, and being expressive are part of everyday communication. However, the repeated contraction of facial muscles can lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Botox and Dysport work to reduce the appearance of these lines in adult men and women. The following areas may be treated:
  • Crow’s feet at your eyes
  • Lines between your eyebrows
  • Horizontal lines along your forehead
  • Small lines around the lips

Botox and Dysport are injected using tiny, sterile needles. The small amount is injected into the muscles of the face temporarily blocking the contractions, relaxing the muscle, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Both products work the same way. Over a few months, the treatment begins to fade and the lines reappear. Regular injections with Dr. Peter Vitulli keep you looking youthful, rejuvenated, and natural.

Botox and Dysport differences

The formula and structural differences lead to different diffusion in the body. Dysport diffuses more and spreads over a broader area after being injected. This may help when treating a large area such as the forehead. It may also mean fewer injections are needed to achieve the desired results. Botox has a thicker formulation and does not diffuse as widely. This is ideal for treating small areas or areas with thicker skin or muscles such as the lines between your eyebrows. More injections may be needed.

Wrinkle reduction treatment expectations

During your appointment, your medical history, experience with Botox, and expectations for the treatment will be discussed. You may be asked to squint, smile, or frown to show the exact location and depth of your wrinkles. If you have ever had a Dysport or Botox treatment, let your physician know so he can adjust your treatment accordingly. Since the dosages of Botox and Dysport differ, try not to compare your current treatment to past treatments with neuromodulators.

Treatments are performed in the office in as little as 10-20 minutes. The injections are easily tolerated. Side effects are generally mild and may include redness or possible bruising at the injection site. Downtime is typically not needed but you may be advised to avoid massaging your face or doing yoga or strenuous exercise the day of your treatment. This ensures the product does not migrate to an unwanted area.

You will begin to notice changes in your lines and wrinkles after a couple days. Full effects are visible within a week and generally last for 3 to 6 months. Your skin will be smoother and more youthful, but not frozen.

Dr. Vitulli is an experienced injector who understands the lines and muscles of the face. He is able to control the injections and select the most appropriate product for a patient’s individual needs.
