How does Dysport® work?

Dysport® is a type of neuromodulator, which means that it temporarily relaxes the muscle contractions that cause facial lines and wrinkles. Each treatment sessions generally takes less than 20 minutes to complete, making Dysport® injections quick and easy. Additionally, there is no downtime associated with this procedure, so you can get right back to work or your other normal daily activities immediately after your appointment.


Dysport® Results

Most people see their final results within two to three days after their Dysport® injections. You may notice mild side effects, including swelling, bruising, redness, and minor discomfort, but these generally resolve on their own over the next few days. Once any swelling as diminished, you will see your smooth, younger-looking results.

Most women and men enjoy their Dysport® results for three to four months before requiring an additional injection in order to maintain the same smooth look.


Am I a candidate for Dysport®?

Anyone in good general health who is looking to improve the look and feel of facial lines and wrinkles may be a candidate for Dysport® injections. Dysport can be used in any area that Botox can be used in.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of Dysport over Botox?

Dysport can last longer than Botox for some patients. It also kicks in about one week faster. Otherwise, when administered by a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, they are virtually the same.

What's the cost difference between Botox and Dysport?

The cost of Dysport treatment can vary based on location, provider, and your unique treatment needs. Both options are priced according to units, but these are not directly comparable since they are measured differently.

How long after Dysport treatment can I get pregnant?

Since further study is needed on the safety profile of Dysport in pregnant women, it's best to err on the side of caution. Make sure to speak with your OBGYN if you're considering pregnancy after Dysport injections.

Does Dysport cause less swelling than Botox?

Both options cause very little swelling that is dependent on the amount of fluid used to mix the injection. Any swelling typically resolves within a day or two.

Does Dysport cause bruising?

There's a very small chance of bruising after cosmetic injections, and your board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist can recommend ways to prevent it before and after your treatment.

Can heat make Dysport wear off faster?

No. The molecules in Dysport permanently attach to the target muscles, meaning the nerve must generate new signals over time. There's no way to speed up this process, so always make sure you receive Dysport injections from a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist.

What's the most common side effect of Dysport?

The most common side effect after Dysport injections is localized bruising. This typically lasts for a few days and resolves on its own.

Is Dysport less effective than Botox?

Dysport and Botox are different brands of the same medication. They are slightly different, so some patients respond better to one than the other, meaning one may be more effective for you.

What is Dysport recovery like?

Dont choose Dysport over Botox for any difference in recovery time. They work similarly. They are different from the fillers which can cause some temporary and localized swelling, but there is always a risk of very small bruises at injection sites, which a careful physician injector will try very hard to avoid.

How many units of Dysport should I be given?

It is very difficult to compare one single treatment with one physician to a single treatment with another. Be careful and do your research before you ask for more, especially if your treatment hasnt taken full effect yet. You may end up with too much if you arent cautious.

Can Dysports effect be reversed or reduced?

Dysport cant be reversed, but it will wear off.

Do I need double Dysport to get the same effect of Botox?

Dysport is a cousin of Botox and the units are counted differently, but similar effects are achieved. Someone who doesnt get long-lasting effects from Botox after a while may do better with Dysport, but that isnt true for everyone. The different type of unit counting is confusing since everyone is more used to thinking about Botox, but both products work well and come out to basically similar costs.
