WHAT IS DYSPORT?
Like Botox, Dysport is an injection that softens frown lines and dynamic wrinkles. As a neurotoxin, it limits muscle movement in the treated area, so it decreases the appearance of wrinkles that occur when muscles contract. Wrinkles appearing from muscle movements are those in the frown, crows feet, and forehead. Dysport can also be used to raise the eyebrows, lift the corners of the mouth, decrease dimpling in the chin, reduce necklines, and slim the face by decreasing the bulk of the jaw muscles.
HOW LONG DOES DYSPORT LAST?
Clinical studies show that Dysport lasts up to 4 months. Like Botox, results will vary.
HOW FAST DOES DYSPORT START WORKING?
Both Dysport and Botox are absorbed by nerve endings near the treated areas soon after injection. They work by blocking the release of transmitters from the nerves that signal muscles to contract.
The majority of people begin to see the effects of Dysport 2-3 days after injection. This is a slightly faster onset of action than Botox which is typically about 3 days after injection. For both Dysport and Botox, effects reach full result in 2-3 weeks.
