Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxinA proteins that help muscles relax for about 3 months. It is particularly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the upper third of the face.* When injected properly by a qualified injector, Dysport provides youthful, smoothing effects without affecting the face’s normal expressions.*
Dysport is effective in treating the following parts of the face as well as aging issues*:
All three fillers are identical to each other and are often considered as interchangeable. Dysport may be a bit different in terms of the dosage required yet they all have the same mechanism of action — they all relax the muscles. Although Dysport may be used in larger areas that require treatment because it tends to diffuse a bit more, similar results can be accomplished with Botox and Xeomin in the hands of an experienced professional.
By and large, it depends on the area being treated. It is important to note that Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox have the same set of time frames in terms of effectivity. In a nutshell, an injection can last about 3 months when injected in the face and neck.* It can extend up to 6 months when used for jaw muscle reduction and excessive sweating.* When using Dysport for facial wrinkles, you may need less dosage per treatment or fewer injections with succeeding treatments.
The short answer is you always should go to a very qualified and experienced injector who is a physician leader in the field of aesthetic medicine. One of my techniques is to make very careful records of each treatment, mapping out every single injection and dosage so that the results are highly reproducible.* Most would agree that a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who performs exclusively aesthetic medicine would be the best treatment provider to get highly consistent results.
Dysport is a very safe treatment if provided by a highly qualified injector. Since it’s mainly composed of protein, the body will have no problems metabolizing it completely because enzymes will eventually break it down into amino acids. It has been shown that there are no traces of Dysport left once its effects have worn off. Reported cases of Botox and Dysport problems are often associated with megadoses of illegal or counterfeit Botox products.
