Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®, Dysport® is composed of the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, which is designed to relax the facial muscles and soften wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport® can be a great option for both preventative and corrective anti-aging treatments. It can begin to relax wrinkles in as little as two to four days and may last as long as four months. It is thought to have a wider “spread” when injected, which is useful in larger areas of the face, like the forehead or extended crow’s feet. It may not be the product of choice when a smaller “spread” or more pin-point relaxation is desired, like around the eyes. Dysport® is often an effective choice for patients who may have become “resistant” to BOTOX® Cosmetic (a rare occurrence and felt to develop after frequent repeated early injections).
Dysport® can help prevent and diminish moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines, and is commonly used to treat:
Minor side effects such as swelling and redness may occur after treatment. However, any side effects experienced are typically minimal and quickly subside. Many patients can return to work immediately after treatment, so there is usually little to no downtime following Dysport® treatment. While benefits are generally immediate, full results usually develop over the course of three to seven days following treatment. Our patients can usually enjoy the benefits of treatment for three to four months.
