Dysport injections are becoming ever more popular due to the many people who want a quick and easy minimally-invasive way of reducing the signs of aging. Dysport and Botox® both contain botulinum toxin type A, but there are some key differences between the two treatments.
Dysport Spreads More Quickly Than Botox
One of the major differences between Dysport and Botox is that Dysport spreads more quickly through the injection site. This can be an advantage when treating a large area, as it helps ensure that the product evenly covers the desired area.
Dysport May Last Longer Than Botox
Another difference between these two products is that Dysport may last longer than Botox. Studies have shown that Dysport can last up to four months, while Botox typically lasts three to four months. This means that you may not need to receive as many injections of Dysport® over time to maintain your results.
The Onset Of Action
The effects of Dysport tend to appear more quickly than those of Botox, with most people seeing results within 24 to 48 hours after injection. However, the effects of both products typically last for the same amount of time, around three to four months.
What to Anticipate During a Dysport Treatment
Dysport has become increasingly popular for its effectiveness in temporarily treating facial wrinkles to help create a smoother and younger-looking face. During the Dysport injection process, we will administer the necessary amount of Dysport product into five specific points above and around the eyebrow region that target the muscles responsible for your frown lines.
We pre-treat these injection sites with a topical numbing solution, so patients typically experience little to no discomfort. The entire Dysport treatment process is brief, taking only 10 minutes from start to finish. You can walk out our door with beautiful results without worrying about inhibited facial expressions.
After injecting Dysport into the muscles responsible for frown lines, you will be given aftercare instructions. You can instantly resume your normal daily activities free of pain or stress.
How Long Does Dysport Last
Dysport injections are a great way to achieve a refreshed, natural-looking appearance, but many people have questions about how long Dysport lasts. The answer depends on individual physiology, lifestyle choices, and sun exposure.
Most clients see visible results within 1-3 days after treatment that last anywhere from 3-6 months. Generally speaking, subsequent Dysport® treatments will require fewer units since the results last longer.
How to Qualify for a Dysport® Treatment
Dysport injections can effectively reduce wrinkles and lines on the face, but you must ensure you qualify for this treatment. Dysport is a prescription product, so it is intended for use only on patients 18 years and older under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional. During your initial consultation with us, our team of experts will assess your age, underlying muscle activity, skin condition, and other factors that help determine whether Dysport is right for you. Dysport can work wonders and bring new life to your look, but ensuring you qualify first is vital.
