One of the famous kinds of Botox brands made in England is Botox Dysport. Botox Dysport is approved by the Ministry of Health in Iran, Dysport is used to eliminate facial wrinkles and fine lines. Botox Dysport works by immobilizing the muscles in the area of wrinkles.

The difference between Botox and Dysport/ (Botox vs Dysport)

Dysport is very similar to Botox and, like other Botox brands, it is made out of botulinum toxin. But there is a fundamental difference between Botox and Dysport. Dysport is essentially a neurotoxin that has been surrounded by protein molecules which works by blocking any contact or messages from the brain to that specific area, therefore the Injection of Dysport can reduce wrinkles and lines on that spot.

In other words, the difference between the two is related to the amount of non-toxic proteins that surround the active molecule. Because fewer proteins surround the active molecule in Dysport, the result of Dysport injections are faster. Also, because the molecules are smaller, the difference between the treated area and other areas will be very subtle. Thus, in comparison to Botox the result of Dysport injection is more natural.

Dysport injection is deeper than Botox injection which causes the Dysport to spread more under the skin. In general, it can be safely claimed that Dysport is the best brand of Botox in Iran for eliminating wrinkles on the forehead and face, in order to have a soft face with uniform skin.
