What’s the difference between Botox and fillers? Botox and its newer competitor, Dysport, are made from the botulinum neurotoxin, which blocks the action of nerves on muscles. Both Botox and Dysport are used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles caused by muscle activity.
Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles you see when you animate your facial muscles, such as the “11” between your eyebrows when you frown or the lines across your forehead when you look up or raise your eyebrows. The smile lines in the corner of your eyes, also known as crow’s feet, are another good example of dynamic wrinkles.
