Dysport®

A lot of people have heard of Botox®. The name has become synonymous with the anti-aging injection that stops the formation of wrinkles and removes years from your appearance. But while more than 4.4 million of these types of injections were performed throughout 2020, not all of them were Botox®.

Dysport® is a very popular neuromodulator that can produce results that are equal to or, in some cases, even greater than what is produced by Botox®.

Dysport® FAQ’s

Dysport® is a type of minimally invasive injection known as a neuromodulator. This means it blocks the communication in the nervous system, namely between the brain and the muscles in your face. When those muscles don’t move, the skin folding necessary for the appearance of wrinkles doesn’t either.

Dysport® is primarily used to remove glabellar lines, the wrinkles that develop between your eyebrows.

The chemical compound is nearly identical to that of Botox®. It is made from a compound known as botulinum toxin Type A, the same bacterium that causes the notorious disease known as botulism. However, the solution used in your injection has been refined so that it poses no risk of developing that disease.

There are some differences between Dysport® and Botox®, though, such as the amount of dilution. Dysport® is less concentrated, which means it spreads into larger areas. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it can be used to treat problems like glabellar lines very effectively.

Since the chemical makeups between the botulinum toxin injections are so similar, many patients ask why we need so many different options. The confusion is understandable, but there are two main factors at play.

The first is that Dysport®, while similar, is not identical. Certain conditions may be better suited for a more diluted solution, and in those cases, having an option is essential. The second reason is that everyone’s body reacts differently to treatments like this. If someone isn’t having luck with Botox® or XEOMIN®, they may find that their bodies are much more receptive to the Dysport® formula.

Dysport® is used primarily for the lines between your eyebrows, known as glabellar lines. There are several other uses that your medical professional can use it for if they deem it safe and the best option. Talk with one of our staff members to see if Dysport® is the best way to address your cosmetic concerns.

Dysport® is suitable for any skin tone or type, so most people will be able to have it performed preventatively or as a regular treatment without any problems. Some very rare skin conditions may prevent you from being a candidate, but those are few and far between.

The best candidates are those who have realistic expectations about what can be achieved. Make sure you look at plenty of before and after photos and do plenty of research before setting your aesthetic goals. This process will spare you a ton of potential disappointment in results that would otherwise be considered successful.

Since Dysport® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment, you do not need to worry about making any extensive preparations for your procedure. You should be in good shape as long as you avoid harsh sunlight and intense facial masks a few days before.

Prior to having your injection performed, the local area will be thoroughly cleaned. Then, a medical professional will insert the needle into your skin and expel the substance within. Then, the area will be cleaned once more to avoid infection as much as possible, and bandaging will be applied if necessary to stop minor bleeding. (Although it rarely is needed at all.)

As a minimally invasive injection, your recovery from Dysport® will be very rapid. You may experience some mild pain or discomfort at the injection site, but they will typically subside within a few days. You will not need to take any time off from work or miss any important appointments. In fact, you can go straight back to your routine as soon as the procedure is complete.

You can expect to see drastic improvements in your glabellar lines immediately after your procedure since your muscles in that area will not be able to contract. This means a much more youthful appearance as you walk out of the door. There is also the added benefit of having increased progress over time as the skin has a chance to smooth over as time goes on. Most people can expect three to four months of improvement per session.

As an injectable, Dysport® can be used in conjunction with an array of other treatments, including other injectables. Body sculpting, cellulite treatment, Emsculpt, laser hair removal, skin tightening, tattoo removal, chemical peels, HydraFacials®, IPL photo facial, laser skin resurfacing and tightening, and even nonsurgical facelifts are all strong combination options.

A single session of Dysport® will likely run you anywhere between $325 and $425, according to Healthline. This number is highly dependent on your unique conditions and treatment plans, so you should be prepared if this number differs from this ballpark estimate. Keep in mind that the skill and experience of your professional are also calculated into the cost, so going for the best “deal” isn’t always the best choice.
