Dysport and Botox in Forehead
Yes, it is okay to use Botox after you have had Dysport. They are both chemically very similar. Both are botulinum type A toxins. Dysport simply has fewer surrounding protein molecules.
So there will likely not be any adverse reaction between the two injections. Your regular dermatologist knows your facial anatomy and the best technique for your individual characteristics. This individual can use Botox to make necessary corrections that will even out your current results.
It is ok to combine Dysport and Botox
It is ok to combine Dysport and Botox. However, I will say this: both can take up to 10 days for full effects that take place. So I'd wait that long before you have your practitioner inject more. Even though most people find Dysport does have an earlier onset than Botox, you could be one of those people that it takes a good 10 days to kick in, so adding more prematurely could cause overinjection actually. Wait the 10 days before you fully assess and consider more.
