Dysport differs from BOTOX Cosmetic treatments in several key ways:
Dysport tends to spread further from the injection site than BOTOX, making it better suited for treating larger areas.
Results of Dysport treatments are usually visible sooner than results from BOTOX. Dysport results should begin to be visible after 1 or 2 days, while initial BOTOX results usually take 3 to 5 days.
But how do these innovative wrinkle treatments work? First, it’s important to understand that they treat specific facial lines called “dynamic wrinkles.” Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles over time. Dysport and other neurotoxins work by relaxing facial muscles, allowing the skin to lie smooth and wrinkle-free.
Treatment with Dysport is a very quick, in-office procedure that causes only minimal discomfort (typically compared to an insect bite). Little to no downtime is required, so you can get back to your usual activities immediately. Results should be visible in 1 to 2 days and will last for up to 6 months. The procedure is easily repeatable, so you can keep your youthful-looking results fresh.
Many people choose to combine their Dysport treatments with dermal fillers such Restylane Injectable Gel. Dermal fillers can add volume to smooth folds and restore youthful facial fullness. Others choose skin resurfacing techniques such as Dermal Infusion or Fraxel.
