Dysport® is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that is used for cosmetic purposes. It is an injectable treatment that helps relax the muscles responsible for causing fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance.
Dysport® works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the targeted muscles, which temporarily inhibits their movement. By reducing muscle activity, Dysport® helps to smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face, particularly in areas such as frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Dysport® is suitable for both men and women who are looking for a non-surgical solution to address the signs of aging. Good candidates are generally in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and want to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines without undergoing surgery.
Results from Dysport® injections can usually be seen within a few days after the treatment. However, it may take up to one to two weeks to see the full effects as the neurotoxin gradually takes effect and relaxes the targeted muscles.
While individual results may vary, the results of Dysport® typically last for three to four months. Follow-up treatments are recommended to maintain the desired results.
Dysport® treatments are minimally invasive and generally don’t require any downtime. One may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising near the injection site, but this usually resolves within a few days. Rarely, there may be temporary side effects such as headache or flu-like symptoms, but these usually subside quickly.
