As time marches on, many of us look to improve our appearances and lifestyles. These changes include smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles we’ve earned over the years. More women and men are using minimally invasive treatments to tighten their skin for a youthful presence.
Though multiple options are available, and it may be challenging to choose what’s best, here are three advantages of Dysport and how the injectable works.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport (pronounced “Diss-port”) is a neurotoxin injectable designed to treat dynamic facial wrinkles. Like Botox, it employs a purified form of botulinum toxin. But the two products use different formulations, with Dysport having a distinct potency.
Both treatments work by limiting specific facial muscles from moving during expressions like smiling or laughing. We call the injectables neurotoxins because each blocks facial nerve endings from receiving signals from the brain. This influence diminishes over time, requiring additional treatment to continue the benefits of smooth, even-textured skin.
As mentioned above, there are differences and similarities between Dysport and Botox. Dysport has a few unique advantages. These include the following.
- Quicker result: The benefits of Dysport are visible within a few days, lasting for three to four months.
- Less discomfort: You may find Dysport injections are less painful than Botox, though results may vary from patient to patient.
- Better outcome on specific wrinkles: Dysport works well on the forehead to treat frown lines.
What Types of Wrinkles Does Dysport Treat?
Dysport works its best on the upper third of the face: horizontal lines across the forehead, crow’s feet about the eyes, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Dr. Cambeiro can use it to smooth and soften lines around the mouth, minimize horizontal and vertical neck bands, and raise one or both eyebrows.
