Dysport Injections: Get Wrinkle-Free FASTER with Dysport®
Do you have a special event coming up that you need to look your best for FAST? While BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are both excellent options to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, you may get your results faster with Dysport injections. Here’s why choosing Dysport injections may be your best option when you need to lose the lines in less time!
Both Dysport and BOTOX are in a cosmetic injections category called “toxins.” Each are highly refined neurotoxins that can deliver safe and effective results when it comes to softening the contractions that cause wrinkles on our skin. Both are composed of the botulinum toxin A which, when injected into a muscle, inhibits the communication between that muscle and the nerves that receive a signal from your brain to contract. This mechanism of action prevents lines from forming on the surface of your skin for up to four months with both products.
While BOTOX may take up to two weeks for you to see the full onset of its results, Dysport injections may take as little as two days for some people. This faster onset makes it the perfect option if you have an upcoming business meeting or social event. Also, some patients find that their results with Dysport injections may last longer than Botox, but this depends on the individual. Many clinics will recommend that you try BOTH products throughout the year to see which works best for you and your expectations.
Another meaningful way that Dysport injections varies slightly from BOTOX is the diffusion of the product once injected. Dysport injections tends to spread somewhat at the injection site. This ability may make your results appear more natural because there is no marked “cut off” point of treatment, but instead, a gradual fade. It can also make Dysport superior around areas where you may need the product to spread further, as in the treatment of Crow’s Feet and the forehead area.
Some patients who receive BOTOX injections in their forehead notice an obvious transition between the treated muscle and untreated areas. This limitation can create a distinct “boxy” look to the forehead where the center is smooth, and the outlying areas have lines and movement. Skilled injectors will feather their Botox injections to prevent this, but in some cases, Dysport may be a better option because of its gradual fading and blending properties.
It’s important to note that a skilled injector will work with you to discover whether BOTOX or Dysport is the better option for you. As previously stated, you may want to try BOTH products at least once to see how fast your results set in, how long they last and whether you prefer the “look” of one product over the other.
As with many cosmetic treatments, individual results may vary and are dependent upon factors such as your gender, the strength of your muscles and the area you have treated. But, there seems to be no denying that you’ll be able to fall in love with your wrinkle-smoothing results faster with Dysport!
