What Is Dysport and How Does It Work?

Dysport is a brand of botulinum toxin type A neuromodulator that is used for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. The active ingredient in Dysport blocks the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine that causes muscles to contract leading to a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

When Dysport is used for cosmetic purposes, it is injected into the facial muscles responsible for causing wrinkles, such as those in the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet). By reducing excessive muscle contractions, Dysport can smooth out wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and youthful appearance.

Who Is a Candidate for Dysport?

Ideal candidates for Dysport are in good overall health and are seeking a non-surgical solution for facial wrinkles. Neuromodulator injections are often the perfect option for patients who are not ready for more invasive cosmetic treatments that have higher costs and require downtime. A consultation at our office will confirm that Dysport is a suitable option and ensure that the treatment’s potential aligns with the patient’s expectations.

Dysport Procedure and Recovery

Dysport injections are not considered to be painful, the treatments are completed in 30 minutes or less in most cases. During the recovery, patients may experience mild redness and or swelling after treatment. Except for a day or two of avoiding excessive physical activity or heat exposure, patients can resume most regular activities without downtime. Many patients will begin to see visible results in a day or two with maximized results that last four to six months, appearing in ten to fourteen days.

Consultation for Dysport

A consultation is the first step towards a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. During this process, we will discuss your specific cosmetic goals, review your medical history, and assess your facial anatomy to determine the ideal treatment areas and the appropriate Dysport dosage. This initial meeting is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the procedure, its effects, and what to expect.

What Is the Cost of Dysport?

Dysport injection procedures are customized to meet individual patient factors and aesthetic goals, so the cost varies.

How Does Dysport® Work?

The effectiveness of this treatment is based on its ability to deactivate the nerves that control facial expressions. It involves a very precise injection into the facial muscles so that only the muscles and nerves that are contributing to wrinkles are affected. Much like the more well-known Botox®, its active ingredient is botulinum type A, a molecule which is responsible for temporarily blocking facial nerve signals. When these nerves are deactivated, the facial wrinkles will begin to relax. This creates a smoother appearance on the surface of the skin without any surgery or downtime.

What Are The Benefits of Dysport®?

No More Frozen Face

What sets Dysport® apart from other wrinkle reducers is its ability to improve the appearance of wrinkles without reducing the facial muscles’ ability to create natural expressions. The frozen, robot-like face that’s become associated with other injectable wrinkle treatments is a thing of the past.

Natural-looking Results for Eye and Forehead Wrinkles

Since Dysport® doesn’t freeze surrounding facial muscles completely, the results tend to be more natural looking. Dysport® is specifically designed to help with wrinkles on the upper half of the face. This is because wrinkles in this area tend to spread out farther, and Dysport® is known to spread throughout the designated areas and work quickly. While it can be used on other parts of the face, the most natural-looking improvements will be on crow’s feet and frown lines.

Long-lasting Results

The results from Dysport® can last up to four months. How long the results from your treatment will last depend on a number of factors, such as the severity of your wrinkles and the specific techniques utilized by your doctor.

Quick and Easy

You live a busy life and don’t have the ability to take time off for a procedure that requires weeks of recovery. Thankfully, a Dysport® treatment only requires a 20-minute office visit. If you are getting other exciting anti-aging treatments, you may be able to have Dysport® injected during the same visit. This treatment option can be discussed during your consultation. While pain is always subjective, many patients have reported that Dysport® created minimal discomfort.
