What is DYSPORT?
DYSPORT (abobotulinumtoxinA) is an injection that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65. DYSPORT is made by the pharmaceutical company Galderma, the maker of Restylane dermal fillers such as Restylane Kysse and Restylane Lyft. Galderma, founded in 1981 and a completely owned subsidiary of Nestlé since 2014, provides a variety of medical and consumer skin health treatments through three business units: Aesthetics, Prescription, and Customer Service
What is unique about DYSPORT?
DYSPORT provides natural-appearing results that are not overdone. Many patients believe their results will appear natural after receiving DYSPORT, and more than half will see long-term improvement in 2-3 days. While individual results may vary, based on clinical trial studies, DYSPORT may last up to 5 months.
How does DYSPORT work?
DYSPORT functions as BOTOX does; however, it uses slightly different molecules to block transmission at the neuromuscular junction. DYSPORT temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles responsible for frown lines and crow’s feet by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle. Untreated muscles continue to function normally, allowing you to express yourself naturally and confidently.
What are the DYSPORT treatment areas?
DYSPORT treats major dynamic lines such as the brow, frown line, and Crow’s feet. DYSPORT also treats other facial areas such as the masseter and chin muscles. DYSPORT can also reduce excessive underarms, hands, and feet sweating.
How long do the results last from DYSPORT?
Some patients may believe that DYSPORT lasts longer; however, both BOTOX and DYSPORT only last up to four to five months. The longevity is determined by the number of DYSPORT units used to treat facial lines and wrinkles.
If you’re looking for quick and effective results, Dysport is one of the best options available. Depending on your specific treatment area, the effects from your injection can last for up to five months, making it a longer-lasting solution compared to other anti-aging cosmetic injectables that typically only last between two and three months.
What are the aftercare instructions for DYSPORT?
Aftercare for Dysport and BOTOX is similar.
Although office visits vary, DYSPORT is a quick procedure, 10-20 minutes. People can continue with their normal activities after treatment.
Some will have redness, pin prick marks, and possible swelling/bruising. Apply an ice pack to the affected area to decrease swelling, bruising, and pain, and avoid the prolonged sun, heat exposure, and strenuous exercise.
