Like Botox, Dysport is proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dysport is a prescription for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age.
Dysport and Botox are both types of botulinum toxin injections. These two injections are primarily known for the treatment and prevention of wrinkles. The differences lie in the potency of trace proteins.
While Dysport and Botox come in different unit sizes and are distilled differently, their desired result is the same.
Dysport is a botulinum neurotoxin (abobotulinumtoxinA), an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent. It temporarily prevents specific muscle movements that cause fine lines.
Typically we tell patients Dysport will kick in after 2-3 days and your full effect should be in by 5-7 days. This can vary per patient and the dosage administered.
After treatment, Dr. Subbio recommends avoiding exercise or strenuous activity for 24 hours. Avoid touching the area as well as applying hats or compression for 24 hours. You may experience little bumps where the Dysport was placed, you can apply ice on the area.
Medications that could increase bruising such as anti-inflammatory drugs, vitamin E, fish oil, herbal medications, supplements, and aspirin should be discontinued 7-8 days before any injection to diminish the risk of bruising.
