What is Dysport?
Dysport is an excellent non-surgical injectable used to reduce the effects of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. This anti-aging treatment is made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as Botox, which temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe wrinkles without changing the natural look of the face.
Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin all contain the same active ingredient: botulinum toxin type A. However, the main difference between the three is the additional ingredients and formula make up. The Dysport formula includes a set of special proteins, which are heavier chemicals than those found in Botox or Xeomin.
One of the top benefits of Dysport is that it takes effect as soon as within a single day! And it also tends to be more cost-effective than Botox or Xeomin.
Dysport is an injectable treatment that works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles. This means you experience smoother skin and a more natural, youthful appearance.
In our experience and our patient’s experience, Dysport injections are slightly painful but easily tolerable. However, if worried about the pain, a topical anesthetic may be applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort.
Compared to other injectables, Dysport is known for delivering exceptional fast results — often within the same day! Full results from a Dysport treatment are visible within a week.
The results of Dysport generally last four to six months. This is typically shorter than Botox or other injectables, which is why it’s often more affordable.
Possible side effects include:
- Swelling and redness at the injection site
- Temporary drooping of eyelids or eyebrows
However, these side effects are rare, especially when administered by an experienced dermatologist or physician, such as our professional team at Cumberland Skin.
