What is Dysport?

Dysport, akin to BOTOX, harnesses the power of botulinum toxin in a safe form. Originally used for various medical applications, this versatile treatment has gained popularity in cosmetic medicine. Approved by the FDA, Dysport is renowned for its ability to temporarily reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, making it a preferred choice for those seeking non-invasive facial rejuvenation. Having gained FDA approval in 2009, Dysport swiftly became recognized for its efficiency in addressing frown lines. Known for its safety and proven track record, Dysport is a reliable solution for those seeking a refreshed and youthful appearance. Its popularity extends to its convenience, with many patients scheduling treatments during lunch breaks, seamlessly integrating into their busy lives.

What Can You Expect?

Dynamic wrinkles form over time due to repetitive facial movements, creating lines and furrows. Dysport, a safe and non-invasive treatment, expertly smooths out these facial wrinkles, providing a rejuvenated look that can last for several months. While Dysport's effects are temporary, consistent treatments can extend the duration of results. At the Buckingham Center, we offer Dysport treatments, ensuring our patients have personalized options to achieve their aesthetic goals.

How Does a Dysport Treatment Work?

Dysport, like BOTOX, acts as a neuromodulator, effectively relaxing dynamic lines and wrinkles resulting from facial muscle activity. A skilled Dysport injector can achieve a natural look, allowing patients to express themselves while reducing unwanted wrinkles. Unlike costly wrinkle creams, Dysport has the ability to block muscular signals, preventing the face from contracting.

While Dysport treatments, on average, last about 3-4 months when administered by a qualified professional, individual results may vary.

To maintain optimal results, patients must adhere to a consistent schedule of regular treatments.

Dysport Vs. Botox

Dysport stands out as a popular alternative to BOTOX, sharing similar ingredients and FDA approval for addressing frown lines and wrinkles. Both treatments temporarily immobilize facial muscles, effectively smoothing fine lines, restoring a youthful appearance, and improving resting facial expressions. Dysport often offers an affordable alternative with lasting results that differ between individuals. During your consultation with our specialist, you can discuss the unique benefits of Dysport tailored to your needs.

Dermal Fillers

While Dysport and BOTOX target dynamic wrinkles, static wrinkles caused by volume loss require a different approach. Dermal fillers, composed of biocompatible materials like hyaluronic acid, prove effective in addressing these wrinkles that remain even when the face is at rest. Injectables offer a non-invasive solution to rejuvenate sunken areas, providing an excellent option for those averse to surgery. Our Austin practice provides various injectables, and our specialists can guide you in choosing the right one during a consultation.

What to Expect During and After Dysport

Patients often wonder about post-treatment experiences. For the forehead area, a typical Dysport session involves four or five small injections, while crow's feet treatment consists of two to four injections per side. Topical ice or, if preferred, a topical cream is used to minimize discomfort during treatment.

Administered with a 32-gauge needle, patients typically experience minimal discomfort, with any pain subsiding once the injections are complete.

While minor bruising, redness, or swelling may occur, these side effects are transient.

Dysport typically begins to take effect within a few days, with increasing effectiveness during the first week. Full effects may take up to 2 weeks to emerge. Results last for 3 to 4 months on average, depending on the treatment area, muscle strength, and past treatments.
