What is Dysport?
Dysport is a cosmetic injectable made from botulinum toxin type A, almost identical to Botox. This type of injectable treatment is known as a neuromodulator, which means that it temporarily reduces nerve signals to the muscles responsible for facial expression. With the nerve signals blocked, the muscles no longer contract, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles in the targeted area.2
Dysport is approved by the FDA to treat glabellar lines, which are the vertical lines that may appear between the eyebrows. Most of our patients refer to these as frown lines or eleven (11) lines.
Benefits of Dysport
Dysport injections offer many benefits to our patients, including:
- Reduce the appearance of frown lines or eleven lines
- A quick, comfortable procedure
- No downtime
- A high rate of patient satisfaction
- Fast results that last up to 4 months
Dysport vs BOTOX
Dysport and BOTOX are similar in that they are both botulinum toxin injectables used for wrinkle reduction. One key difference between Dysport and BOTOX is the speed of the results. BOTOX injection results may not be visible for 7-10 days, while our patients typically see Dysport results within 2-3 days.3
The Dysport Procedure
Treatment with Dysport takes only a few minutes, and no anesthesia or patient preparation is necessary. After a brief consultation, with a surgeon injector, the patient simply reclines in a comfortable treatment chair while Dysport is injected using a fine needle.
Dysport Recovery and Results
No recovery is necessary after Dysport injections, though some patients may experience redness, swelling, bruising, or sensitivity at the injection sites. Patients usually begin to notice the results of their Dysport treatments within 2-3 days, and results last for up to 4 months.
