Dysport® is a product of Galderma, and is also known as abobotulinumtoxin A, which is a neurotoxin similar to Botox® that blocks activity in the muscles causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. Used in aesthetic medicine, Dysport is used to smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines that are often common between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and smoothing lines around the eyes (crows feet).
As stated before, Dysport® relaxes the muscles thus resulting in the smoothing of the skin, and a reduced appearance of the wrinkles.
For jawline slimming and treatment of TMJ, Dysport is injected into the masseter muscles thus resulting in the appearance of a slimmer more contoured jawline as well as the reduction of pain in the region.
For Hyperhidrosis, Dysport is injected in the area of excess sweating thus shutting down the sweat glands resulting in a significant decrease in wetness.
Regular Injections of Dysport can be used to prevent wrinkles as well as treat them. Therefore many experts recommend that patients start treatment in their early twenties even before wrinkles appear.
After Dysport® injections, patients can expect to see its effectiveness in as little as 48 hours. Full results should be seen in 10-14 days post procedure.
Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities or lay down for approximately four hours post procedure.
Patients may experience some light bruising.
Patients are advised to avoid hats or head bands post injection for at least four hours.
The average longevity of Dysport is approximately 4 months. Please remember that dose equals duration of your neurotoxin.
