DYSPORT® injections are one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed. The popularity of DYSPORT® is due to their ease of use and supreme effectiveness in treating common types of wrinkles. These injections can reduce wrinkles of the brow (frown lines), eyes (crow’s feet), lips and neck. With a series of quick injections, you can see dramatic reductions in these types of wrinkles can be achieved.
Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
One treatment of Dysport can last for up to 4 months,† so the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport may be comparable to the first use.
Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, the dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
