What is Dysport?

Approved by the FDA, Dysport is an injectable treatment primarily designed to diminish the visibility of wrinkles resulting from recurrent facial expressions. It belongs to a class of substances known as neurotoxins, which work by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles responsible for forming lines and creases. Dysport is derived from the same botulinum toxin type A as Botox, yet it has unique characteristics that may make it a preferred choice for some individuals.

What are the benefits of Dysport?

Dysport offers several benefits that have contributed to its growing popularity. One of its key advantages is its ability to provide a refreshed and rejuvenated look by addressing dynamic wrinkles, such as crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows. The results are subtle, allowing for natural facial expressions while smoothing out unwanted lines. Additionally, Dysport has been observed to have a faster onset of action compared to some other neurotoxins, with visible effects appearing within a few days of treatment.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport functions by targeting the communication between nerve cells and muscles. Upon injection into targeted facial muscles, it transiently interrupts the nerve signals responsible for triggering muscle contractions. As a result, the treated muscles relax, and the overlying skin becomes smoother, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The precision of the procedure enables patients to preserve their authentic facial expressions while reaping the advantages of a smoother and more youthful complexion.

What to expect from the procedure

The Dysport procedure is conveniently swift, usually lasting between 10 to 20 minutes. An adept medical practitioner will commence by cleansing the treatment area and might administer a topical numbing cream to heighten comfort during the injection process. Using a very fine needle, Dysport is injected into the targeted muscles with precision. Many individuals find the procedure tolerable, with only mild discomfort experienced during the injections.

Following the procedure, downtime is minimal, and patients can generally resume their regular activities promptly. Slight redness or swelling near the injection sites might arise temporarily but typically diminish within one to two days. Results gradually become apparent over the course of several days, with optimal results manifesting within a couple of weeks. The rejuvenating effects of Dysport can last around three to four months, after which maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the desired appearance.
