What You Need to Know About Dysport

Aside from Botox®, Dysport is one of the most widely used anti-aging products used. Like Botox®, this product can be used to effectively address wrinkles on the forehead, eyes, and around the mouth. Additionally, due to its non-invasive nature, patients do not have to endure any downtime after being treated with Dysport. If you are considering Dysport, schedule a consultation with the team at Advanced Dermatology Center for a consultation at (818) 284-4003.

In the meantime, learn more about Dysport and what it can do for you:

  • How safe is Dysport? One of the biggest concerns patients often have when it comes to receiving injectables is their safety. Dysport was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and deemed safe for many years now. Its most common side effects are mild pain, headaches, and numbness. Its benefits well outweigh the minimal risks that are associated with it.
  • Is Dysport permanent? Like many other anti-aging products, Dysport is not permanent. It generally lasts between 3 and 6 months.
  • How does it compare to Botox®? Despite their notable similarities, the results of Dysport typically outlast Botox®. Dysport is also more pain-free upon injection. At most, you might feel a slight prick from the needle.
  • When will I see the effects of it? This will vary from patient to patient, but most will be able to see the results of Dysport within a week or less.
  • Are there any side effects? Injections like Dysport are quite safe and yield very few possible side effects, such as slight bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site. These effects are usually mild and do not last long.
  • How long does it take? Not only is this type of treatment non-invasive, but it is also quick. In most cases, patients are able to have the whole process done within 30 minutes to an hour, at most. Additionally, you will not experience any downtime afterward, which means you can continue to go about your day. However, you should avoid exercising for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Which areas can be treated with Dysport? The most common areas of the face that are treated with Dysport include the forehead and the areas between a patient’s eyes. However, it can be used to treat several other areas along the face and neck.
