Dysport, along with similar products Botox and Xeomin, can take up to one week before they start to work optimally. This is because it takes time for the medicine to act on the muscles and for the skin to soften. A Dysport treatment can provide results that last up to 5 months. The dose of Dysport for treating glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows) is a total of 50 units injected equally into specific muscles.
Generally, you can expect to start seeing results from Dysport two to four days after the injections are given. The cost of Dysport varies depending on the amount of product used and the frequency of the injections. It is a high-quality injectable formulated with botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that can temporarily inhibit the movement of facial muscles. Your treatment session may take longer if you need to combine other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers, with Dysport injections.
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 before. Administered by a licensed healthcare professional, Dysport is supplied in a sterile vial of 300 single-use units. If you're in relatively good health, your skin is healthy, and you're concerned about dynamic wrinkles and creases, you may be considered a good candidate for Dysport. Botox typically lasts 3 to 4 months, while Dysport lasts an average of 3 to 5 months for most patients.
Dysport should only be administered by a general practitioner, dermatologist, cosmetic beautician, plastic surgeon, or other health professional authorized to administer it.
