Dysport Q & A
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a cosmetic injection FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adults ages 65 and younger. It’s a type of botox injection that gives you a naturally younger look without making you appear frozen or expressionless.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport works by stopping the underlying cause of your frown lines.
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen. Collagen is the protein in your skin that provides strength, structure, and elasticity. With less collagen, your skin is thinner, which means the muscles under your skin work closer to the surface, and when your muscles move they cause folds in your skin, creating the wrinkles.
The active ingredient in the Dysport injection is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent that temporarily stops the movement of the muscle under your skin that creates the frown lines.
What can I expect during treatment with Dysport?
Your Dysport injections at Genesis Medical are quick and nearly painless. During your injection, your specialist inserts the tiny needle into specific points in between your eyebrows and injects the medication. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle goes into your skin.
Treatment time varies, but shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes. There’s no downtime following your Dysport injections, and you can go right back to your usual activities afterward. Your aesthetic specialist may recommend you hold off on any strenuous activity, such as your spin class, for at least two hours following your treatment.
You may notice some redness at the injection site, but these side effects disappear within a few hours. You should see an improvement in your frown lines two to three days after your injections.
How long does treatment with Dysport last?
Dysport is recommended as a temporary treatment for moderate-to-severe frown lines and can keep you looking young and fresh for up to four months. The specialists at Genesis Medical recommend you come back to the office for additional injections as soon as you notice the effects wearing off. Repeated Dysport injections thin out the muscle under your skin so your treatment lasts longer.
