What is Dysport?
Dysport is a brand of botulinum toxin type A. It has been in use for over 25 years for cosmetic use by Health Canada and the FDA.
Cosmetically, Nonsurgical Dysport injections are popular because it is a quick but effective way to improve the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. It is similar to Botox as both are botulinum toxins, but Dysport has smaller protein molecules. Studies show it starts to works faster than Botox as early as 3 days
Dysport is more specialized and known for treating frown lines, the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows. They form from facial expressions such as frowning and squinting. Deep frown lines can make your facial expression appear to be unhappy. Lines can appear at a younger age but can also worsen with aging as our skin loses its elasticity.
Dysport is great to use as a preventative treatment. For younger people, using it now can prevent muscles from creating frown lines and they will not form as deeply. If you are older with noticeable wrinkles, Dysport will help soften moderate and even severe frown lines.
Our Secret Faces practitioner has over 12 years of extensive medical and aesthetic experience to provide results that are so natural you can keep it a secret.
How Does It Work?
Dysport is a brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It belongs to a class of drugs known as neurotoxins. When injected, neurotoxins limit muscle activity by decreasing the nerve’s signals that are sent to the muscles in the area injected. This makes it highly effective at treating dynamic wrinkles (movement-related wrinkles).
Dynamic wrinkles, unlike wrinkles caused by a loss of facial volume, develop from repeated muscle contractions. Dysport targets muscle contractions at the source to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles. While Dysport limits localized muscle movement, it does not completely stop all movement in the areas where it is injected. It will soften lines and reduce deep wrinkles, while still allowing natural expressions to occur. As the pull of the muscle relaxes, the overlying skin ultimately flattens and smooths, which in turn will lead to the minimization of lines.
Receiving Dysport injections at our clinic in Oakville, is a simple and comfortable procedure. The entire process typically takes no more than 30 minutes.
At our complementary consultations, we first assess your area of concern, we make sure that the BOTOX® Injection treatment is suitable and safe for you based on your medical history and goals. We then strategically point out the treatable areas and begin the injections.
Studies show Dysport last up to 2.5 weeks longer than Botox and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising. Avoid wine, omega vitamins, garlic, and green tea.
As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.
Dysport is non-invasive can restore your youth or transform your appearance in no time!
Frequently Asked Questions
Are you considering a Botox/Dysport treatment for the first time?
Here are a few questions and answers that may help you decide.
What is BOTOX®/DYSPORT?
BOTOX®/DYSPPORT are treatments for dynamic wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas are:
the lines & folding of skin between the eyebrows caused by frowning known as “frown lines”
the lines around the eyes known as crows feet caused by squinting or smiling
the horizontal lines across the forehead caused by raising the eyebrows
Is it safe?
Yes! BOTOX®/DYSPORT has been available for 25 years and has been used to treat many diseases. In fact, it is used in children as young as 2 years old to treat cerebral palsy. It has been proven to be very safe through extensive testing and research. BOTOX is an approved drug used to treat patients for cosmetic wrinkles
How is it done?
It is injected with a very tiny needle (it only feels like a little pinch).
Does it hurt?
Most patients say the injections feel similar to a little pinch, although everyone is different.
We usually hear that patients say, “Is that all?”
How quickly does it work?
It can take up to 2 weeks for it to take full effect. Usually we ask patients to wait for the 14 days to fully see the results. DYSPORT has been shown in studies to start working within 3 days and last 2 to 5 weeks longer- this may vary from individual.
