Dysport is a type of botulinum injection that has many applications, both medical and cosmetic, but the most popular treatment is used to minimize crow’s feet and frown lines. The treatment relaxes the muscles around the injection site which results in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Dysport is a quick procedure completed within a few minutes.
How Dysport differs from Botox
While both Dysport and Botox can treat many of the same cosmetic issues, the difference lies in the time it takes for the results to take place, how long the results last, and the area the treatment effects.
The full effects of a Dysport treatment can be visible in just a few days, with results lasting three to four months. In addition to smoothing the appearance of lines, Dysport does not cause a “frozen look,” or the restriction of facial expressions, so patients can fix their trouble areas without sacrificing the movement of the rest of their face.
