It’s likely that you’ve heard of Botox, but few are familiar with Dysport, a Botox alternative that may be a better choice for some patients. While both use botulinum toxins to treat wrinkles by shutting down muscle movement, Dysport is a more potent formula. It is ideal for removing lines between eyebrows, particularly in severe cases, though it can be used in multiple areas of the face where deep wrinkles are present.
Top Benefits Of Dysport Injections
Dysport injections are quick and safe, so most people interested will likely qualify as patients. They also provide a number of benefits for those who choose to make it part of their beauty routine.
Some patients are concerned about the look of their fillers and wrinkle treatments, which can sometimes have a reputation for creating a frozen or unnatural appearance. Dysport provides an invisible fill that has been refined over the course of many years. Injections provided by an experienced professional will give subtle results that enhance your natural features rather than change them entirely. If you are concerned about the appearance of your fillers, ask your provider for photos of their work to see how their previous patients have enjoyed their Dysport treatments.
Dysport Injection Spread
Thanks to the lower concentration of protein present in Dysport injections, the solution spreads across the face more evenly than Botox. This provides a more natural appearance than other types of injections. It can also help decrease the number of injections needed for optimal results, helping you save money. Wrinkle injections are typically priced by unit, and a smoother spread helps save on the number of units of Dysport needed to achieve your intended appearance.
Dysport injections last for three to six months, after which point the process will need to be repeated to maintain fresh results. However, lines and wrinkles often appear less severe over time as the muscles surrounding them shrink. As a result, the treatment lasts longer than Botox, with full results appearing in about one week after treatment. This makes Dysport an attractive option to those who are on a budget or low on time but still want to take care of their appearance.
In addition to treating existing wrinkles, Dysport can help prevent new ones from forming. This is because the muscles controlling wrinkles diminish with lack of use, making it more difficult for wrinkles to reappear as the treatment wears off. Many providers therefore recommend beginning Dysport treatments earlier than people typically anticipate, as the muscles will relax and help prevent wrinkles before they have a chance to more fully develop on the face as the skin around the area ages.
No Downtime Needed
Most injections do not require patients to take any time off after their appointment, and Dysport is no exception. The procedure is minimally invasive, with no incisions or stitches involved, and there’s no need to interrupt your normal routine afterwards. Visible side effects, which typically include redness, swelling, and light bruising, are small and temporary, generally fading after just a few hours. If you experience any severe side effects, speak with your injector immediately to get treatment.
Certain types of wrinkle injections become less effective over time. This is because your body creates an immune response to the materials used, eventually breaking down the injection before it can have a strong effect. While this is a good thing when it comes to fighting infection, it can limit the benefits of your injections. Dysport has fewer proteins in it than other popular injections, meaning that your body will not react as strongly to its contents. If other treatments have not been effective for you, Dysport may be a good solution.
More Refined Treatments
Similar treatments to Dysport have been in use for many years, giving doctors and estheticians plenty of time to practice with proper injection procedures. As a result, patients are receiving more refined treatment than ever before, limiting the chances of an ineffective treatment that does not achieve your desired results.
