Botox, Dysport, or Restylane: Which Is Right for You?

Most people have heard of Botox and other facial injections but only have some vague idea of what they do. Botox, dermal fillers, and other injections can deliver natural-looking results when used correctly. But what’s the difference between the main players in the game—Botox, Dysport, and Restylane—and which one is the right option?

The Neurotoxins: Botox and Dysport

The word "neurotoxin" may sound scary at first, but neurotoxins are simply a class of injectables designed to smooth wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing muscles in the face. These products are helpful to men and women seeking younger-looking skin, and Botox and Dysport are two of the most popular brands. Both products are made of a toxin called botulinum, and both prevent facial muscles from contracting. This weakens the facial muscles that cause those lines, preventing new wrinkles from forming and existing ones from deepening. Botox and Dysport target crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal wrinkles above the eyebrows. Results typically last around three to four months.

The Dermal Filler: Restylane

Dermal fillers seek to smooth wrinkles and fine lines by adding volume to the skin, and Restylane is one of the most popular options. Restylane is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is found naturally in human collagen. Once injected, the HA “fills in” wrinkles and lines below the skin, adding volume and replacing collagen and fatty tissue lost during the aging process. These types of fillers are great for adding definition to the cheeks, chin, and jaw, and they can help smooth wrinkles and lines under the eyes and around the mouth. Restylane also has other lines of fillers that help select areas of the face. Restylane Silk can be used to enhance lips and areas of under the eyes that can develop that sunken look. Restylane Lyft is a great option for increasing volume to cheeks, and Restylane Define and Refine can help with deeper wrinkles and can enhance the jawline. Results usually last six months, depending on the patient.

The Bottom Line

There’s no “one size fits all” option when it comes to choosing an injectable, as the right option will depend on each patient’s desired outcomes. In general, Botox and Dysport relax facial muscles to smooth wrinkles, while Restylane achieves a youthful appearance by enhancing volume and definition. Each product can be used on different areas of the face for different—but natural-looking!—outcomes, so it’s up to each patient and his or her doctor to decide which option to use.
