Dysport is a very popular injectable treatment that contains botulinum toxin type A, often being used for both cosmetic and functional purposes. It should only be administered by qualified healthcare professionals but can provide very effective and beautiful results when used to reduce the appearance of certain fine lines and wrinkles.

What does Dysport help with?


Dysport is a temporary but effective injectable cosmetic treatment that is frequently used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. More specifically, Dysport is used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, which are the vertical lines that develop in between the eyebrows, also known as frown lines. These wrinkles in particular can be very difficult to treat due to them being dynamic wrinkles that develop due to the repetitive movement of the surrounding muscles leading to the gradual development of creasing in the skin. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet (the lines that develop around the eyes), as well as forehead wrinkles. Some physicians will administer Dysport injections for functional medical purposes as well, including managing neck muscle contractions and spasticity in the upper limbs. 

How long do Dysport results last?


The results provided by Dysport injections can vary a bit from person to person, with the effects typically lasting for around 3 to 4 months on average. Several factors can influence the longevity of the results, including the dosage, the treatment area, and how quickly your body naturally metabolizes the injected medication. To ensure that your results last as long as possible, it is very important to closely follow all recommendations and aftercare instructions provided by your injection specialist, with common instructions including:

• Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and a balanced diet;
• Drinking plenty of water; and
• Always protect any exposed skin from sun damage through a high SPF.

It is common for clients to receive touch-up or maintenance injections of Dysport to further prolong the achieved results within a schedule that is provided by your injection specialist. Any other instructions or a more accurate timeline for the longevity of your Dysport results will be provided to you during your consultation.

Why is Dysport better than Botox?


Both Dysport and Botox are frequently recommended cosmetic treatments that are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and come with many similarities. However, there are also quite a few differences between the two treatments that lead to preferences among both healthcare providers as well as their clients. Some people may have a preference for Dysport over Botox because Dysport has a faster onset of action, meaning that the results will develop and are seen more quickly than with Botox. Additionally, Dysport injections tend to have a slightly broader spread, which means that once injected, the medication spreads out a little bit more to provide smoother results, also making it beneficial for treating larger areas. Botox also comes with many benefits of its own, so the decision between Dysport or Botox for each client is ultimately determined by the injection specialist depending on which option they believe will provide their clients with the most natural, beautiful, and long-lasting results. 

Who should not use Dysport?


Although Dysport is a very safe and effective treatment option for many individuals, it is not going to be a suitable option for everyone. Individuals who may not be a suitable candidate to receive injections of Dysport include:

• Those with allergies to any of the ingredients included in Dysport
• Those with an active skin infection within the area that is going to be treated
• Those who have a known allergy to Botulinum toxin
• Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding
• Those with certain neuromuscular disorders

A consultation with a licensed healthcare provider in which your medical history, current health status, and potential risk factors are disclosed and discussed will be required to ensure that Dysport is a safe and effective option for you.
