Dysport

Dysport is an FDA-approved, prescription injection for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults under 65. Results typically last for four to six months, though they can sometimes last for a year.

Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Medicis), and Xeomin (Merz) are all injectable neuromodulators, meaning they can temporarily alter the nerve impulses of targeted muscles, therefore reducing or eliminating contraction-induced wrinkles.

Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the same substance, bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, or Botulinum Toxin A, but they all work the same way: they block the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily paralyze muscle movements that cause wrinkles. The most common targets are horizontal lines across the forehead and perpendicular frown lines between the brows (also called “The Elevens”), but many also rely on Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin for crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, lines around the neck, eyebrow lifting, and even profuse underarm sweating and migraines.

How does the treatment feels like?

During the treatment, a very fine needle is injected into each specific muscle for a few seconds with only the minor discomfort of a tiny pinch. For ultra-sensitive types, topical anesthetic cream or ice can be applied beforehand if necessary.

How long does it take?

15 to 20 minutes.

What are anticipated results?

You should notice smoother, more wrinkle-free skin within 2 to 3 days’ post injection, but the full effects won’t appear for about 2 weeks. It may take as long as a month for results to peak on areas with stronger muscles, particularly in men.

At full throttle, your skin will feel smoothed and lifted, with a more youthful and awakened appearance. These results tend to last 8 to 12 months, at which point the muscle movement gradually returns and the wrinkles and lines start to reappear, but often less severe than before because the muscle is being trained to relax more. https://www.dysportusa.com/
