What Areas Can be Treated with Botox/Dysport?

If lines on your face are stressing you out, we have the solution. Botox® and Dysport® are both proven to banish wrinkles, fine lines, and expression lines with minimally-invasive injections that require very little downtime.

Botox vs. Dysport

Botox and Dysport are both botulinum toxin products and are marketed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. While Botox and Dysport are very similar in their effects, they have some notable differences. Dysport is known to set quicker than Botox and provide noticeable results in just 2-3 days, versus up to a week with Botox. The composition of each injection is also different, with Botox being significantly more potent than Dysport per unit. However, this potency is reflected in the price, so results with either substance cost about the same.

Conditions Treated

While wrinkles and facial lines are the most common conditions treated with Botox and Dysport, other medical conditions can be treated with them as well. Excessive sweating of the underarms, hands and feet are often treated with botulinum toxin. Lazy eyes, overactive bladder, and chronic migraines are all also successfully treated with these injections.

Treatment Areas

Because Botox and Dysport are intended to treat wrinkles and fine lines, it should come as no surprise that they can both be used almost anywhere on the face. However, since these injections have been proven to treat other conditions, there’s almost no limit to where they can be injected. Injections can be done in the neck to treat neck bands and lines. For excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, injections may be in the underarms, hands, feet, or anywhere where profuse sweating occurs. For overactive bladder, injections are made into the bladder and urethra. For a lazy eye, the injection is pinpointed into a specific muscle near the eye being treated. As you can see, the potential treatment areas that can benefit from Botox or Dysport are completely dependent on the condition being treated.
