Dysport is a popular injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It is primarily used to correct glabellar lines, the lines between the eyebrows. Dysport is an excellent choice for those with moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows, while Botox can be used to treat many different types of wrinkles, including crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and expression lines. Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe brow lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Dysport works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing wrinkles on the surface.
This relaxes the underlying muscles beneath the skin, softening and refreshing your complexion. Michele Green, a board-certified dermatologist, states that Dysport goes beyond offering an immediate improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used as a prescription treatment for non-wrinkle-related benefits. Both Dysport and Botox injections are intended for healthy adults, 18 years and older, with moderate to severe facial lines. According to the Dysport website, 95 percent of users were satisfied with just two treatments a year and 97 percent of users thought their results looked natural.
Joshua Zeichner, director of Cosmetic & Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, adds that Dysport works by reducing the activity of the treated muscles, preventing overlying skin from creasing on itself and creating wrinkles. Many board-certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons administer Botox and Dysport in their offices, and are approved at some medical spas. At the end of the day, Dysport is a fantastic option for people looking to enjoy immediate results, for example before a big milestone or event. Orit Markowitz backs this up, stating that sagging eyelids and drooling (when injected through the mouth) would be considered the worst case scenario when injected with a real Dysport. Both Dysport and Botox are considered non-surgical forms of wrinkle treatment that have fast recovery rates. Like Botox, Dysport is an FDA-approved neuromodulatory injection designed to temporarily delay the formation of wrinkles.
The dosage of Dysport is not the same as the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other product you have used.
