What Is Dysport?

Every time we laugh, smile or frown, we’re telling others how we feel almost instantly. In fact, facial expressions like these are one of our most important forms of nonverbal communication. Imagine if we only listened to what people say and ignored what their faces tell us — a lot of meaning and nuance would get lost in translation.

However, facial expressions can also cause lines and wrinkles to appear. When the underlying muscles contract to convey an emotion, they create folds and creases in the skin around the forehead, eyes, and mouth that become more noticeable with age. Eventually, these turn into the crow’s feet, frown lines and laugh lines that we’re all familiar with.

Dysport is an anti-aging injectable that temporarily smooths away unwanted facial wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. It uses a purified form of botulinum toxin to interrupt nerve signals so the treated muscles can no longer contract as strongly, leaving your skin smooth and youthful after just one treatment. Dysport injections take just a few minutes to perform and require no downtime, allowing treatment to fit easily into your busy schedule.

Dysport Treatment Areas

Dysport is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable to treat moderate-to-severe glabellar lines (frown lines) between the eyebrows. However, many providers also use it off-label to soften the appearance of other expression lines and wrinkles, including:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Masseters

No matter what your concerns are, Dysport injections are customized to each individual patient. During an initial consultation, our medically licensed injectors will evaluate your skin and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your aesthetic needs and goals.

Dysport vs. Botox

Dysport is similar to Botox, in that it uses the same active ingredient — botulinum toxin — to diminish the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, but there are some differences between these two popular anti-aging injectables. For example, Dysport is made with smaller molecules that allow it to diffuse easily into treated muscles. This leads to a quicker onset of action and may create a softer, feathering effect that some patients prefer over Botox.

Thanks to its ability to spread more quickly and easily, Dysport is better for treating larger areas like the forehead with fewer injections. However, this also means it may be less effective at targeting more precise spots, but this largely depends on the skill of your provider. At VITAHL, our experienced injectors have the knowledge and expertise to produce your desired results with Botox or Dysport, ensuring a natural-looking outcome each time.

What to Expect During Treatment

Your Dysport treatment will typically begin with a consultation with one of our expert clinicians. During this time, we will thoroughly evaluate your needs, concerns, and goals to determine if Dysport is right for you. We will also explain the injection process and what you can expect before, during, and after your appointment to ensure the best results.

Dysport injections are performed in-office and can be completed in 15-30 minutes. Your provider will prep the treatment area and use a fine needle to administer the product directly into your facial muscles, relaxing them to soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Each injection takes just a few seconds and the procedure is considered relatively painless.

Afterward, you’ll be free to return home and immediately resume all of your normal activities. Unlike more invasive procedures, Dysport injections require no downtime or recovery. However, it is important to follow all aftercare instructions to ensure the best results.

Dysport Recovery & Results

Dysport treatments involve no downtime and few side effects. At most, you may notice some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. This should subside quickly within a few hours or days and can be covered with makeup in the meantime. Ice packs and over-the-counter medication can also help minimize any swelling or discomfort you may experience.

You’ll be able to see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles a few days after your appointment. As the neurotoxin begins to take effect, your face may feel tighter or heavier than usual, which indicates that it is working to relax the muscles in treated areas. Once your full results have developed at 2 weeks, you can enjoy smoother skin for three to five months. When you notice wrinkles returning, a touch-up can be performed to help you maintain your youthful appearance.

Dysport + Fillers: The Perfect Combo

If you’re looking for a comprehensive solution for unwanted facial wrinkles, Dysport and dermal fillers are the perfect pair for achieving a more youthful, refreshed appearance. While Dysport works to temporarily relax the muscles that cause expression lines with every wink or smile, dermal fillers restore lost volume and add contour and definition to certain areas. Together, these two treatments can address a variety of concerns and provide the best possible results without looking overdone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dysport is an FDA-approved treatment that’s been proven safe and effective for temporarily reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. It is also approved to treat certain medical conditions, such as muscle spasms. Over the years, Dysport has been used by millions of people worldwide and studied in numerous clinical trials.

Typically, Dysport costs less per unit than other neurotoxins like Botox, but more product is needed to achieve the same results due to its unique formula. The overall cost ends up being comparable and many patients find the difference to be negligible. We recommend focusing more on your treatment goals rather than cost when trying to decide which is right for you.

Dysport and other neurotoxins treat the dynamic wrinkles that appear with every facial expression you make. These wrinkles are caused by repetitive muscle movements and are typically seen on the forehead (frown lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Dynamic wrinkles differ from static wrinkles, which are caused by volume loss and present even when the face is at rest. Static wrinkles are best treated with fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane.

You’ll be able to resume your normal routine after your Dysport treatment, but patients are recommended to avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot tubs for at least 24 hours and avoid laying down for 4 hours after treatment. Additionally, you should not rub or massage the treated area, as this may affect your results by causing the neurotoxin to spread to nearby muscles.
