Last year, Botox and Dysport injections were the number one minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure performed in the country. In 2002 Botox was approved by the FDA to treat frown lines. Seven years later, Dysport was approved for the same use. A new study in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery set out to determine which product works best to improve the appearance of crow’s feet (which neither drug is specifically approved for).
Ninety people were injected with Botox on one side of the face and Dysport on the other. According to the results, Dysport improved the appearance of crow’s feet significantly better than Botox. However, it is important to note that the difference was only visible when users contracted their facial muscles. No difference was apparent while faces were at rest. According to the researchers, more tests are necessary to determine if one drug is more effective than the other on other facial muscles.
