Dysport is another type of botulinum toxin injection that is FDA-approved to improve the appearance of wrinkles and unwanted facial lines. It works similarly with Botox in that it blocks the communication between nerve endings and their surrounding muscles, therefore weakening the muscles in that area.
How long does Dysport last?
Results are usually seen within a couple of days and can last between 3 to 4 months.
Where can Dysport be injected?
Similar with Botox, Dysport can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It can also be used to treat conditions such as chronic migraines, lazy eye, TMJ pain, and hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating).
What are the possible side effects?
The majority of side effects include localized swelling, pain, or bruising at the site of injection, which are all temporary. These side effects can be minimized with proper injecting technique by a well-trained, certified physician.
