What is Dysport?
Much like BOTOX®, Dysport is a cosmetic injectable used to smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face. Injectable wrinkle relaxers typically work by binding to certain receptors in the muscle, causing them to become temporarily paralyzed. This smoothes out surface wrinkles and gives the patient a more youthful, vibrant appearance. Unlike dermal fillers, which can be used to address static lines and folds, wrinkle relaxers aim to smooth dynamic lines caused by repetitive muscle movements and facial expressions.
Where can Dysport be used on the face?
Dysport is FDA approved for the cosmetic treatment of moderate to severe lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Most often, patients use Dysport to address deep lines between the brows, also called glabellar lines or “11” lines. For patients with early or mild forehead lines, Dr. Christy may recommend an alternative treatment, such as BOTOX injection.
In some cases, a combination of Dysport plus BOTOX and/or injectable fillers may be used to address signs of aging across the entire face, including:
- Forehead lines
- Glabellar lines
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye circles
- Hollow cheeks
- Volume loss
- Nasolabial folds/bunny lines
- Lip lines
- Thin lips
- Marionette lines
During your initial consultation for cosmetic injections in Carmel or Terre Haute, IN, Dr. Christy will carefully examine your areas of concern and determine which product or combination of products can best help you achieve your goals.
When do you see results after Dysport?
One of the noteworthy differences between BOTOX and Dysport is that, for most patients, the effects of Dysport begin to appear more quickly. While BOTOX can take up to seven days to produce visible results, Dysport typically offers results in as little as 1 – 3 days.
How long does Dysport last?
The results of Dysport injections may vary somewhat from person to person, depending on the severity of their forehead lines, the amount of Dysport injected, and other factors. In the majority of cases, patients can expect their Dysport results to last for about 3 – 4 months before a repeat injection may be needed.
