What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is the newest injectable treatment used to lessen the appearance of wrinkles on the face. Made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as Botox®, Dysport® was originally approved in the 1990s to treat neuromuscular disorders. Used for years to smooth wrinkles on patients in Europe and South America, it was recently approved by the FDA as a treatment to reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows.
How does Dysport® work to treat wrinkles?
Dysport® works in much the same way as Botox® to relax the muscles that cause facial wrinkles and frowns. Dysport® disperses a bit further from the injection site than BOTOX® Cosmetic, which means fewer injections are needed. Cosmetic physicians and dermatologists who are experienced in performing these injections administer Dysport® injections to make sure that the drug does not spread to nearby muscles, which can cause side effects such as drooping eyelids or eyebrows.
What are the benefits of Dysport®?
Dysport® is quickly becoming a popular choice of injection to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines. It offers several benefits over other similar injections including:
- Effective treatment of many types of wrinkles–with special emphasis between the eyebrows
- Provides a softer, more natural look
- Quick procedure with no recovery
- Quick results with marked improvements starting in as little as a few days
- Ideal complement to laser skin resurfacing or dermal fillers
How long do the results from Dysport® last?
Unlike other injections, Dysport®starts to work in as little as two to three days.Because there is less protein in the medicine, Dysport® lasts a little longer than other injections.
