DYSPORT® works by treating specific, wrinkle-causing facial muscles in order to eliminate dynamic wrinkles. Dysport can provide a very natural appearing and dramatic improvement in your appearance. There is no down time with this procedure, and you can return to your regular daily activities almost immediately. Dynamic wrinkles include those lines across the forehead (horizontal rhytids), around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (glabella).
What’s the Difference Between Botox and Dysport?
Exactly how the two wrinkle-relaxers differ is not fully understood. Initial reports suggest that Dysport may act quicker. Botox takes three to five days to work, while Dysport seems to work within one to two days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving treatment. This rapid response could be the deciding factor for a woman or man looking to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting. What’s more, the Botox alternative may last longer than its predecessor.
Dysport is the newer name in wrinkle reduction but just because it’s new here doesn’t mean it’s not a proven treatment. Dysport has been around for close to two decades and is one of the most popular beauty medical treatments in Europe. Wrinkles develop as muscles under the skin contract when we laugh, frown, smile, squint or express emotions in any way. Over time, as the muscles contract and relax again and again, the skin will show patterns of these contractions.
Wrinkles are the visible signs of these patterns. Dysport works by weakening the muscles under skin, and preventing the ability to contract. In this manner it stops the skin from creasing, and leaves you with even, smooth skin. Dysport also delivers super fast results. Our clients typically see results within the first 24 to 48 hours.
