What Is Dysport?

Made from botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for causing fine lines and wrinkles, Dysport is commonly used to target lines between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead, but can also be used to treat other areas of the face.

How Does Dysport Work?

Wrinkles form due to repeated muscle contractions, which cause the skin to fold over time. By temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for the contraction of facial expressions, the injections prevent them from creasing the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Dysport blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for controlling muscle movement, allowing the muscles to relax and the skin to smooth out. This results in a more refreshed, youthful appearance without surgery or invasive procedures. Say goodbye to facial creases and hello to a more natural-looking you with Dysport injections at VIVIFY medspa in Tampa.

What are the Benefits of Dysport? 

Dysport offers various benefits beyond its well-known wrinkle-smoothing effects. Here are some of the key advantages:

  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: these injections effectively diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on the forehead and around the eyes, by relaxing the underlying muscles.
  • Quick Results: Dysport typically provides a faster onset of action than other neurotoxin treatments, with visible improvements appearing within a few days.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Dysport can offer natural-looking results, allowing for facial expression while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Longer Lasting Effects: Some individuals may experience longer-lasting results with Dysport compared to other neurotoxin treatments, with effects lasting for several months.
  • Treatment for Excessive Sweating: Dysport injections can effectively manage hyperhidrosis, reducing excessive sweating in targeted areas such as the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet.

What to Expect from Dyport Treatment

The treatment areas and amount of product to be used will be outlined during your consultation based on your aesthetic concerns and goals. Before your treatment, the skin is cleaned, and muscle movement is assessed by our practitioner. Dysport is then injected into the targeted muscles using a fine needle. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. 

After your Dysport treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling at the injection site, but this generally subsides within a few hours. You can return to your regular daily activities immediately, although avoiding heavy exercise for the first 24 hours is recommended. Results from Dysport typically last for several months and can be maintained with follow-up treatments.

Dysport FAQ

What is the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?

Which is better, Dysport or BOTOX?

What is the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?

Dysport and BOTOX are both injectable neurotoxins used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. They are both made from botulinum toxin type A, but they have some differences in their formulation and application. Dysport has smaller molecules than BOTOX, which means it can spread more easily and may be more effective for treating larger areas like the forehead. BOTOX, on the other hand, is more concentrated and may be better for treating smaller, more precise areas like the crow's feet around the eyes.

Which is better, Dysport or BOTOX?

There is no clear answer to this question, as it depends on individual preferences and needs. Some people may find that Dysport works better for them, while others may prefer BOTOX. It's important to consult with a qualified medical provider to determine which treatment is best for you.
