Dysport Wrinkle Treatment
Pittsburgh, PA | Columbus, OH
Dysport®, an FDA-approved wrinkle treatment, offers a non-surgical option for the correction of expression-related wrinkles, or dynamic wrinkles, on the forehead and around the eyes. With every laugh, squint or frown, the muscles of the face contract causing the overlying skin to crease. Over time and as the elasticity in skin gradually diminishes with age, these expression creases deepen and become permanent facial lines and wrinkles.
Learn More About Dysport:
Facial wrinkle treatments with Dysport injections involves temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract, and effectively smooth and reduce the appearance of:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow's feet
Facial wrinkle treatments with Dysport involves the injection of a minuscule amount of clostridium botulinum toxin A and works by temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract. After Dysport injections, all untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to remain unaffected.
Following a Dysport wrinkle treatment, normal activities can resume immediately as long as you remain in an upright position and avoid any pressure on the area for at least 4 or 5 hours.
The results of the Dysport injections are not instant. Improvement is gradual and usually begins within 2 to 3 days with the final result achieved in about a week or so. In most cases, the treated wrinkles will relax and soften, producing a younger, well-rested appearance.
Although the improvement varies with each person, the result may last 4 to 5 months or longer.
Are there any side effects from Dysport Wrinkle Treatments?
Some individuals may experience mild bruising or swelling at the Dysport injection site, or a mild headache. These conditions are temporary and will gradually subside within a day or two.
What is the difference between Dysport and BOTOX ® Cosmetic?
Based on review of past clinical studies, the most notable differences between Dysport and BOTOX seem to be the following:
- A faster onset of wrinkle releasing effect is noted with Dysport in some patients. Whereas BOTOX may take 3-7 days to take effect, some clients who receive Dysport see improvement within two or three days.
- Dysport is slightly less expensive. The cost per bottle to the physician is about 5-10% less.
- Clinical trial reviews show Dysport has a tendency to migrate further from the injection site than BOTOX. This means that there may be increased chance for relaxation of muscles in the face that were not intended. That being said, choosing an experience medical provider becomes even more important.
Are there any alternatives to Dysport Wrinkle Treatment?
Yes. In addition to the Dysport Wrinkle Treatment, BOTOX Cosmetic is also FDA-approved for the treatment of expression related wrinkles and fine lines.
