What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly those associated with facial expressions. It contains the active ingredient abobotulinumtoxinA, which is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin. Dysport® works by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the muscles, leading to muscle relaxation and a smoother skin surface. This results in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
What is AbobotulinumtoxinA?
AbobotulinumtoxinA is the active ingredient in Dysport®. It is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When used in small, controlled amounts, abobotulinumtoxinA is highly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It achieves this by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, allowing the treated muscles to relax and the skin to appear smoother.
Is Dysport Safe?
Dysport® is considered safe when administered by a qualified medical professional like Dr. Joseph Russell. It has a long-standing safety record and has been used for cosmetic purposes for many years. During your consultation, Dr. Russell will discuss any potential risks or side effects to ensure that Dysport® is a suitable choice for your aesthetic goals.
How Long Does Dysport Usually Last?
The duration of Dysport® results varies from person to person, but they typically last for several months. You may notice the initial effects within a few days, with full results becoming more evident over the course of a week or two. Maintenance appointments can be scheduled to prolong the effects and maintain your desired look.
Which Lasts Longer, Botox or Dysport?
Both Botox and Dysport® are effective injectable treatments with similar mechanisms of action. The primary difference lies in their formulations and how individuals respond to them. Some patients may find that one product lasts longer for them than the other, but this can vary. Dr. Joseph Russell can provide personalized guidance based on your unique needs and preferences.
Botox is the injectable filler that everyone knows and loves. With an established reputation as a facial filler that works wonders on most users, Botox is a common choice among people looking to smooth their wrinkles. Both Dysport and Botox are similar to each other, both in chemical makeup and in potential results since both contain AbobotulinumtoxinA. If you wish to learn more about Botox, click here.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport
How long does it take Dysport to work?
Dysport injections are lightning fast, usually being completed in just 10 minutes. Most patients feel ready enough to return to work, the same day. The effects of Dysport are typically noticeable within two to three days.
How long does Dysport last?
Just one Dysport injection can have effects that last up to 4 months. Since Dysport is intended to be used as a temporary solution to lines and wrinkles, they will reoccur. It is recommended to get touch ups every now and again when they come back.
Does Dysport treat lines caused by the sun?
Dysport does not treat lines or wrinkles, that are brought about by exposure to the Sun. This is because the treatment only affects the facial muscles underneath the surface, not problems on the surface of the skin itself.
