Dysport is another botulinum injection that reduces the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles.
After years of facial muscle contraction expressing different emotions, defined lines and wrinkles can appear permanently. These folds persist even when the muscles are relaxed, causing you to look older.
Like BOTOX, Dysport works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
After treatment with Dysport, you can return to your everyday life with no downtime. Most patients tolerate the injection procedure with little pain. The effects of Dysport, like those of Botox, generally last approximately four months.
The differences between BOTOX and Dysport are subtle but include varied injection techniques and dosages. Some studies have suggested that Dysport takes effect more quickly than does BOTOX. Please contact our office for more information or to schedule a consultation.
