Dysport is a paralytic that is designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face caused by repetitive muscle movements and facial expressions. Like Botox, it is a neurotoxin that is made from a substance found in nature called Botulinum Toxin. When injected under the skin, Dysport blocks the nerve signals to the muscles that cause the wrinkles on your face and temporarily relaxes them. This allows the existing wrinkles to smooth away and slows the appearance of new ones.
Like Botox, Dysport is most effective at treating lines and wrinkles on the top half of the face, such as the “eleven lines” between your brows, and lines and creases on your forehead and around your eyes. Dysport’s different formula and structure, however, a
llows it to diffuse more than Botox. This makes it slightly better at treating larger areas or areas with thinner muscles, such as the worry lines on the forehead or the crow’s feet around the eyes.
Most patients begin to see improvements within a week, although it may take up to 2 weeks for the full effects to be visible. Dysport results generally last about 4 to 6 months, and follow up treatments will be necessary to maintain your results.
