Are you dealing with unwanted wrinkles? These days, injectables are a very safe and effective non-surgical option for getting rid of shallow facial wrinkles, age lines, and folds. There is a wide variety of injectables on the market, and one of the most popular options is Dysport.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable product similar to Botox and contains the same substance, abobotulinumtoxinA, or Botulinum toxin type A. AbobotulinumtoxinA is produced by the botulinum bacteria. The toxin of this bacterium is able to block nerve activity in muscles. This causes normal muscle activity to be reduced wherever it is injected, which relaxes the muscles to limit or stop the formation of lines and wrinkles on the skin.

Differences Between Botox and Dysport

Dysport and Botox work more or less in the same way and provide the same kind of benefits to the face in terms of reducing wrinkles, folds, and lines by reducing muscle activity. Dysport costs slightly less than Botox while requiring the same amount of botulinum A to be injected into the face.

Dysport has been known to provide slightly quicker results than Botox. They appear two to five days after taking the injections, whereas Botox takes at least four to seven days to start showing results. Dysport also works on a wider area of the face once injected, unlike Botox, which focuses more specifically on the area it is injected into.

Dysport Injection Sessions

Dysport has been approved by the FDA and is very safe and effective to use. During an injection session, Dysport is carefully and precisely injected directly into the muscles of the face. A topical anesthetic may be used to numb the region beforehand, if needed.

The body might naturally develop antibodies against the botulinum toxin. Because of this, it is advised to repeat Dysport injections every three months and not take too long of a break between two sessions of injections. You should ideally wait for three months between getting sets of injections done.

Be advised that just like any other injectable, Dysport has to be administered by an experienced medical professional. Also, it is advisable to go to the same person for the next sitting of Dysport injections and not change surgeons.

After Dysport Treatment

Because Dysport is an injectable procedure, it is only minimally invasive. As a result of this, there is no long period of downtime required for healing. Instead, after getting Dysport injections, patients are immediately able to go back to their normal schedule. Because the procedure is so short – only around 15 minutes – and no recuperation is required, Dysport is an ideal option for your lunch break.
