What is Dysport?
Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin injection. It is used to treat muscle spasms in certain health conditions, the Dysport injection is primarily known for the treatment and prevention of wrinkles. Dysport works to block muscle contractions for facial wrinkle treatments.
Dysport is a non-surgical form of wrinkle treatment that offers a quick recovery after treatment.
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
Dysport and Botox are both used to treat and prevent wrinkles in adults. They are both noninvasive injections which help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles beneath the skin. After the injection, it will relax and still the muscles, and the skin then turns smoother.
However, neither treatment can get rid of existing wrinkles for good, you will need maintenance injections to keep up the smooth afterlook, but the effects from these injections are meant to make wrinkles less noticeable. You might consider either Botox or Dysport when you are noticing the results from at home wrinkle serums and creams are not working for you.
While both treatments do contain a similar active ingredient as the main ingredient, the trace amount of protein can vary. Due to this, it can make one treatment more effective than the other for certain people.
How long does Dysport last?
Another reason many choose Dysport injections is because the treatment takes little time to complete. Normally around a few minutes, however it can take more time to apply anesthetic to numb the area and then allow it to dry compared to the injections themselves.
Once the procedure is completed, you will be able to go home immediately after the treatment.
Dysport injections have the ability of seeing the after effects from the injection treatment within as little as a couple days.
Dysport injections results last anywhere between three to four months. You will need to go back for more injections around the three-to-four-month time frame to maintain treatment results.
Does Dysport get rid of wrinkles?
Dysport injections are an injectable treatment created by Galderma aimed at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck. It can be particularly beneficial in treating moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the forehead.
How many treatments will I need?
Dysport is a neuromodulator, when injected it will affect the nerve signals to the muscles of the particular area that is being injected. As the muscles are no longer being told to move by the nerves, they become relaxed. Due to this relaxation, the wrinkles over the muscles tend to smooth over.
This popular treatment for wrinkles affects not only the face, but the neck and jawline as well.
The number of treatments you need during your appointment will depend on the contributing factors that are causing the wrinkles. These contributing factors are:
As we age, the required number of treatments may become more frequent
- How deep the treated lines are
Deeper facial lines are usually going to resurface faster than ones that are shallower. Facial lines tend to return gradually, once you start to see this, you are able to re-book for another treatment
- Individual face structure
Each individual is going to have a slightly different experience when it comes to the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Your facial composition and body’s sensitivity to the treatment can all help contribute to the outcome
