What is Dysport used for?

Dysport is another botulinum-based formula that was approved by the FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles in 2009. This formula has been shown in some studies to work more quickly and last longer than its forerunner Botox. Dysport is commonly used for forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and lipstick lines (vertical lines that appear above the lip line).

What to Expect with Dysport

Following a Dysport session, you may have mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this should subside within a few days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and may want to apply a cold compress as needed. Results are usually noticeable within 1 –3 days as the visibility of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a softer, smoother appearance. These results should last for about 3 – 4 months and follow-up treatments may be done at JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA to extend your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Main Difference Between Dysport and Botox?

Dysport lacks several binding proteins compared to Botox. As such, it may be of consideration if people have had a lessened response with Botox over time and maybe better for areas where more spread or surface area is desired such as periorbital crow’s feet or forehead.

Any Special Concerns With Dysport?

The product contains “albumin”, a cow’s milk protein, so those with an allergy (albeit very rare) should not consider Dysport. This does not mean lactose intolerance in which case the product is not contraindicated – meaning it is safe to use.
