Dysport® helps smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines

Injectable treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic are growing in popularity as more people seek easy, yet effective methods of rejuvenation. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) estimates that about 7.4 million people received botulinum toxin-derived injectable treatments last year. Treating the deep wrinkles in the upper face is a top concern for many, and injectables are more and more likely to be their first choice to combat them.

Joining the ranks of popular injectable treatments is Dysport®, a new treatment that also uses the power of botulinum toxin to stop glabellar lines—the vertical creases that form between the eyebrows—right in their tracks. Dysport® is a cost-effective alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic that relaxes facial muscles for an immediate rejuvenating effect.

Procedure

Dysport® uses a slightly different form of botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA) that temporarily prevents specific muscle movements, effectively “freezing” the muscles to prevent wrinkles from forming. Dysport® is injected directly into the muscles above the eyebrows at five strategic points, immediately providing a firming effect. Treatments are incredibly convenient and take minutes to complete, with little to no downtime or preparation needed.

Candidates

Dysport® is primarily designed to target moderate to severe glabellar lines. Candidates include patients who:

  • Are in good general health
  • Have deep creases they want to reduce
  • Are free of milk allergies

Dysport®’s convenience and ease of use make it an ideal treatment for patients who do not have the time for more invasive measures. Dysport® is also effective for younger patients who are just starting to get deep wrinkles and want to stop them before they get worse.

Recovery

Dysport® recovery is simple—there is a tiny bit of swelling and redness in the injection sites right after the treatments are completed. No hospitalization or a prolonged doctor’s visit is required. Generally, patients can get right back to their day after treatment is completed.

Dysport® is considered to be as safe as BOTOX® Cosmetic or other comparable treatments. Some side effects include:

  • Slight pain or discomfort
  • Numbness at injection sites
  • Headaches

Most of these side effects subside within hours (or up to a day or two) after a Dysport® treatment.


Results

The rejuvenating effects of a Dysport® treatment are typically apparent within days. Most patients see improvement in their wrinkles within 2 to 3 days, with results that last up to 4 months.

Dysport® treatments are designed to be performed with a single injection per treatment. Patients can develop a resistance to Dysport® if injections are too frequent, so it is recommended to undergo treatment every 90 days for optimal results.


Costs

Dysport® tends to be less costly than BOTOX® Cosmetic. The average cost is around $450 per treatment. Some doctors may charge per unit.
