Overview

Along with BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport is a popular injectable designed to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines on your face. This treatment, by our board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute, is made from the same neurotoxin as BOTOX Cosmetic, but usually doesn’t require as many injections because it diffuses farther from the injection site. Dysport is injected directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles, which temporarily immobilizes them.

This procedure at out Austin, TX office mainly targets the muscles on your forehead that tend to form creases when you frown. Results from the Dysport injection will start showing up within a week. The results have been shown to last longer than BOTOX Cosmetic (up to 13 months in some cases) because Dysport takes longer for the body to break down due to it having less protein. As a general safety rule, you should not receive Dysport injections within 90 days of each other. 

Administering Dysport

Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked, and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 30 minutes.

What to Expect

There is no downtime after a Dysport injection. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but the skin will return to a normal appearance a few hours after treatment. Ice packs are often compressed to the site immediately after treatment to help calm the skin and reduce these after effects. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within a couple of short days.

Dysport FAQs

Dysport or BOTOX?

Both Dysport and Botox are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically become visible faster than BOTOX, last a bit longer and spreads to a larger coverage area. 

Dysport or Filler?

Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers, as well as products such as Dysport to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles, but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products such as Dysport and BOTOX, with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a “liquid facelift” and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.

How Often for Treatment?

Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3-4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
