Neuromodulators such as Dysport are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines by relaxing the muscles around the injection site. A doctor will inject a small amount of the substance directly into the muscle, causing it to relax and the skin above it to become smoother. Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin that works similarly to Botox, by reducing muscle movement and making moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows less noticeable. Both Dysport and Botox are considered non-surgical forms of wrinkle treatment with fast recovery rates.
The dermatologist will inject Dysport at five points above and between the eyebrows to temporarily prevent muscle contractions that cause lines. Both Dysport and Botox injections are intended for healthy adults, 18 years and older, with moderate to severe facial lines. They are commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and forehead. An average dose of Botox is 20 units, while the average dose of Dysport is 60 units, and both achieve the same results.
Depending on your skin condition and aging problems, we can recommend Dysport or Botox for the best results. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau have a very similar function but differ in their chemical composition. After injection into a specific muscle, Dysport causes it to relax, restricting contractions and facial expressions that often cause lines and wrinkles to form. Botox and Dysport are fast, non-surgical anti-aging methods with minimal downtime, if any.
Xeomin does not contain any additives or accessory proteins, so it is often used in patients who have developed resistance to Dysport or Botox. Because Dysport doesn't lift saggy skin, some patients opt for a non-surgical facelift, also known as a PDO thread lift, to achieve a more dramatic transformation and lift.
