For more than 20 years, Botox has been touted as a wonder-drug for reducing pain, inflammation, and wrinkles. This neuromodulator impedes unconscious muscle movement that leads to pain in damaged or strained muscles, inflammation leading to health concerns like overactive bladder, and contraction-induced wrinkles. In 2009, the US approved Dysport, a competitor for Botox that has similar applications and results. Dysport had been used in the UK and Europe for many years before coming to the US. Since that time, researchers have delved into the difference between the two, and while most qualified Botox and Dysport administrators rely on patient preference when determining which injectable to use, there are some notable differences to take into account before choosing an anti-wrinkle treatment option.
