As we age and our smooth skin becomes wrinkled and lined, many people wish they could regain their youthful appearance. While the injectable BOTOX is a household name, Dysport is a similar type of treatment that is also a popular alternative to BOTOX. This injectable smoothes wrinkles and frown lines away, taking years off of the appearance.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable treatment approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe frown lines. These wrinkles between the eyebrows and on the forehead are effectively smoothed, restoring a fresh, youthful appearance.
Patients who are looking for an alternative to BOTOX find Dysport is similarly effective and has its own positive qualities. Like BOTOX, Dysport temporarily relaxes the muscles that contract and cause frown lines. While specific muscles are relaxed, the others are intact, allowing you to make a full, natural range of facial expressions. Dysport is based on the same substance as BOTOX, but spreads more widely than BOTOX.
How long will Dysport results last?
One treatment of Dysport can last three to four months, giving you a long-lasting period of time to enjoy the smooth, youthful appearance you want to see when you look in the mirror.
There is no recovery time after treatment, and makeup can be applied immediately. The results look natural, giving you smoother skin around the eyes and on the forehead and softening wrinkles.
