Botox/Dysport Cosmetic® has been approved in Canada for cosmetic use for many years now and has become the most common non-surgical cosmetic treatment in North America.Botox/Dysport Cosmetic® is a purified protein, which has been extensively researched and tested just like any other medication. It works by relaxing the muscles underneath our skin that cause dynamic wrinkles including frown lines between the eyes, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet (smile lines).

Botox/Dysport Cosmetic® is an excellent method of wrinkle prevention. As years go by of active facial movements, the dynamic lines gradually become permanently etched in our skin, creating static lines that appear even at rest. These lines are generally more difficult to treat once formed. With regular Botox/Dysport Cosmetic® treatments, you can prevent these lines, maintaining smoother and youthful appearing skin.

Botox/Dysport Cosmetic® is a prescription drug that is regulated by Health Canada and patients must be seen by a physician prior to receiving Botox treatments. It is essential that the physician thoroughly understands the anatomy and interaction of various muscles on the face in order to ensure optimal results. It is also important to fully assess each client’s own individual facial features and listen to each client’s desires and expectation. Each client is unique and treatments should be customized, which requires an experienced injector.

What is the Difference between Botox and Dysport?

Discussing Dysport and Botox is similar to comparing Coke and Pepsi. They are essentially the same product with only slight differences. Both are the same product Botulinum Toxin A, a derived protein that works by relaxing targeted muscles. Dysport’s protein is slightly smaller, which allows for it to take effect faster. Studies also show that Dysport lasts longer, and that patients believe it offers a smoother and softer result. In our clinic, the vast majority of clients have experienced firsthand the advantages of Dysport. We now offer it almost exclusively as our clients love the quicker, longer lasting results.
