"Your Alternative to Botox"
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport are both Botulinum Toxin A's but are made by different companies. Botox has been available for over 15 years in the USA, but Dysport was FDA approved in 2009 and has been found to be as effective and safe as Botox. Ageless MediSpa now offers this additional alternative, Dysport®. It has been used in Europe since 1991. It is a bit different to use from an injectors standpoint, but for the patients it is pretty much the same as Botox. The results and the cost are extremely comparable.
As we age the first place we notice it is in the face. The first area of concern is usually the wrinkles in the forehead. There are non-surgical options for the reduction of wrinkles in the forehead and that area between the eyebrows, and the crows around the eyes. We have heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic, now there is an additional alternative known as Dysport®.
How does Dysport work?
The botulin injections cause the injected muscles to "relax" so that they no longer contract and cause these fine lines and deep wrinkles to form. Dysport also blocks nerve impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are directly related to expression lines. After treatment, the skin overlying the treated area becomes smooth and wrinkle free. The muscles that went untreated will contract as usual and leave normal facial expressions unaffected.
When will I notice changes?
Typically, we have seen here at Ageless MediSpa a faster onset of the Dysport effectiveness. The effect of Dysport is usually visible within 1-3 days. Maximum benefits are reached between 8-10 days. Once the muscle becomes dormant and the skin softens, you will have a more relaxed and youthful, appearance erasing those fine lines, deep wrinkles and expression lines.
How long does Dysport last?
The effects of Dysport usually last 3 months, and fade away gradually. Following several treatments of Dysport you may see the results lasting up to 4-6 months or longer on some people.
Is Dysport safe?
Dysport has been used as a safe, successful treatment by thousands and thousands of patients worldwide to treat ophthalmological and neurological disorders since 1991. It has been FDA approved in the USA for temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (lines between the eye brows and forehead) in adults since 2009. Anyone who has any autoimmune diseases, immune therapy, or allergies to milk or milk products should not have Dysport.
Before Dysport Treatment:
Before Dysport the patient should stop all medications that thins the blood. Stopping these medications will help to eliminate any bruising which may occur at the injection sites.
Post Care for Dysport:
After your Dysport treatment, the patient should stay upright and refrain from massaging the treated area for four hours. No exercise for 24 hours, allowing product to become stable in the muscles it has been injected into. For the first 24 hours, the patient should be careful not to apply pressure to the area and be particularly careful while sleeping.
