Whether you’re still relying on video chat for work meetings or have returned to the office, you are likely searching for ways to improve your appearance. Your cosmetic goals might include smoothing away the appearance of wrinkles you’ve gained over the years. People are increasingly relying on minimally invasive methods to tighten their skin and restore a more youthful appearance, but it can be overwhelming to choose a brand. What are the advantages of Dysport, and how does it work?
Dr. Malena Amato, in Austin, Texas, runs a practice where patients can receive timely, comfortable, and discreet professional care. Dr. Amato offers everything from neurotoxins to dermal fillers and can also recommend which one is best for you and your aesthetic goals.
All About Dysport
Dysport is a neurotoxin injection used to help minimize facial wrinkling such as brow furrows, crow’s feet, and glabellar lines. Like Botox, it uses a purified form of botulinum toxin. However, Dysport uses a different potency. Both brands work by paralyzing specific facial muscles, thus relaxing existing wrinkles and preventing new ones from appearing. Botox and Dysport are called neuromodulators because they block the nerves from sending the signals that cause muscle contractions.
All About Botox
Botox fillers work in much the same way as Dysport. Both have the same active ingredient — botulinum toxin A. This toxin works by blocking nerve signals to target muscles, causing a naturally refreshed, relaxed appearance. Purified botulinum toxin temporarily lessens eye wrinkles and forehead lines, with results usually lasting three to four months.
What Are the Benefits of Dysport?
As you now know, Botox and Dysport work very similarly, but Dysport comes with a few extra advantages.
- Faster results: Dysport’s effects can be visible within a few days after your treatment, and can last for up to three to four months.
- More successful at treating wrinkles: Dysport is one of the best solutions for deep frown wrinkles on the forehead, and some patients have even noticed a significant improvement to their crow’s feet.
- Safe and effective: Unlike surgical treatments and some other injectables, Dysport has clinically proven to be a safe and effective way of reducing facial wrinkles, creases, and worry lines.
Is Dysport the Wrinkle Fighter for You?
During your consultation, Dr. Amato will discuss the minor differences between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin with you, along with explaining how each of these neuromodulators might affect your treatment. From there, you can decide on a product that will best help you meet your aesthetic goals.
As with any cosmetic procedure, the changes you make are ultimately your choice. If you have forehead lines or troublesome crow’s feet, Dysport might be the perfect wrinkle-fighting solution for you.
