Dysport is a new wrinkle relaxer that was recently approved by the FDA. Similar to Botox, Dysport is purified botulinum toxin. It works like Botox by preventing the contraction of muscles that create wrinkles in the overlying skin. Like Botox, Disport can be used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet.
With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
You should not be treated with Dysport more frequently than every 90 days.
However, Dysport is not exactly the same as Botox. The subtle differences between Botox and Dysport, such as how long the treatments last, remain to be discovered.
Dysport's possible advantages include:
- Faster onset of action - usually within 36 hours
- Less expensive - $3 per unit
- Smoother results - Natural results
Dysport has been used for many years in other countries for cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes and rigorously studied before approval to be sure it's safe.
