Is Dysport Right For Me?

Author: Dr. Bobby Buka

Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin are all FDA approved botulinum toxins that help reduce wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. Dysport was created by a competitor of the creators of Botox. Dysport may start working a little faster, which makes it a preferred treatment for many patients.

How it Works
Dysport supports the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles by blocking brain signals to the muscles that are injected with the solution. Over few days the muscles slowly relax, leaving you with a natural look and softer frown lines.

While Dysport probably has a slightly faster onset than Botox, it lasts just as long. Dysport typically remains effective for 3-4 months after the treatment.

No matter what your age is, you will be able to see the benefits from Dysport injections. Patients with permanent frown lines may see them soften, and younger patients may be able to prevent them from occurring. Men and women alike can see an improvement in the appearance of their skin.

The cost of Dysport treatment is based on the muscle area being treated. Patients often seek treatment for lines caused by muscles surrounding the eyes or in the forehead.

Dysport treatment should be avoided by those who suffer from neuromuscular disorders and by those who are pregnant or nursing.

Dysport vs. Dermal Fillers
Fillers are used to plump the skin and treat each wrinkle directly, while Dysport addresses the root cause of lines and wrinkles. Either treatment alone will give some results, but with a combination of both, you can achieve better and longer-lasting results.
