Dysport is primarily used to relax fine lines in the forehead and in between the eyebrows, but can be injected anywhere in the face in order to eliminate wrinkles.$ 3.5 / Per Injection Book Now
Dysport is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that is very similar to Botox. It is primarily used to relax fine lines in the forehead and in between the eyebrows, but can be injected anywhere in the face in order to eliminate wrinkles. By injecting Dysport to relax facial muscles and reduce excess movements in the face, it prevents new lines from forming to leave your skin looking smoother and younger. As a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, Dysport lasts about as long as Botox, which is up to around 3 or 4 months. Dysport injections block contractions of muscles beneath the skin to prevent the formation of skin folds or wrinkles. Similarly to Botox, Dysport can be used in jaw muscles to alleviate headaches as well as migraines. Dysport will allow you to look years younger by eliminating signs of aging.
Individuals who experience contractions of facial muscles, especially those found in the forehead and around the eyebrows, can greatly benefit from a Dysport procedure. Dysport can also correct bruxism and clenching of the jaw in order to prevent migraines from occuring. The corrections administered by Dysport often last around 3-4 months, but can last significantly longer depending on the amount of units used. Dysport is said to spread out slightly further from the injection site than Botox, giving it a more long-term advantage over Botox.
When you come in for a Dysport procedure, we will determine how many units of Dysport you will need. When we determine the amount of treatment, we will then mark, clean, and ice the area of the injection site. Afterwards, we will begin administering the treatment to the targeted areas. Depending on what muscles are receiving injections as well as how many are required, the treatment should take less than 15 minutes in total to complete. This is very similar to Botox, though it may take slightly shorter due to the spread of Dysport within the site.
After receiving injections, slight swelling and redness may occur at the site of injection. The bump at the site may look like a mosquito bite, but should disappear within 10 minutes post procedure. The effects of Dysport should take effect within 3 to 5 days, which is significantly less than that of Botox, but may take up to an extra week to display full treatment results when compared to Botox. The wrinkles in and around the injection site will resolve, as well as any muscle contractions you experienced prior to the treatment.

Benefits And Risks
Dysport is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that will produce many results that are similar to Botox, but may be more effective due to its spread. The procedure itself is relatively quick and painless, and it is proven to improve the appearance of your skin. Elimination of wrinkles and fine lines will minimize signs of aging and produce a healthy skin glow, making it look much younger.
Though Dysport is relatively harmless in small doses, it is still made up of the same active ingredient of Botox, which is a toxin. It is not advised to receive frequent or heavy amounts of Dysport as it can pose unhealthy side effects. However, these side effects are less likely to occur when the Dysport is issued by a trained professional. Everyone’s skin and health history vary, as will the benefits and risks of Dysport. Speak to one of our licensed physicians to determine your unique benefits and risks of receiving treatment.
