What is Dysport and How Does It Work?

Wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of specific facial muscles over many years. With age, your facial skin loses natural collagen, and over time, becomes far less supple and firm. The natural wrinkles that occur when you make facial expressions will eventually become etched into the skin. Dysport injections temporarily relax the underlying muscles by using botulinum toxin A, a substance that blocks nerve activity in muscles.

When these muscles are relaxed, frown lines soften and disappear, giving your face a far more youthful look. Dysport is injected into five points in your forehead, targeting the precise muscle strands that create the creases and visible frown lines.

BOTOX vs DYSPORT The main difference between Botox and Dysport is that Dysport is a more diluted concentration than Botox, making the botulinum toxin A molecules to break down slower. The smaller molecules tend to be more favorable for treating larger areas and it spreads quite quickly to treat wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines.

Am I a candidate for Dysport in The Woodlands?

Dysport in The Woodlands is an excellent treatment to smooth moderate to severe frown lines. If you have fine lines or less severe wrinkles, we may recommend another approach. At Beauty IQ Medi Spa, we offer a wide range of advanced anti-aging therapies and will be happy to guide you to the best treatment for your specific goals and needs. You should avoid Dysport if you are allergic to cow’s milk protein or if you have a skin infection in your forehead area. During your consultation, we will ask you about your medical history and any allergies to ensure Dysport is right for you.

What to expect with Dysport

Before your treatment, we will apply a mild topical anesthetic to avoid you experiencing any pain or discomfort. The injections are completed within 10 to 20 minutes, after which you can return to your daily activities. Dysport aftercare is very minimal, no downtime is required but you may experience some redness or swelling at the injection sites. These side effects resolve in a matter of hours.

Results take two to four days to appear and Dysport lasts from three to five months. While it varies from person to person, many patients choose to get our Spring TX Dysport treatments three times a year to maintain the smoothing effect on the skin.
