Dysport can reduce the manifestation of wrinkles or prevent their onset.
Also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, Dysport is an injectable neurotoxin that blocks muscle contractions. It is used primarily to reduce the manifestation of lines that appear around the area between your eyebrows (the glabellar region). This procedure is recommended for those who have mild to severe glabellar lines rather than moderate ones.
Dysport is a member of the botulinum toxin family, so it shares many similarities with Botox, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. Other than smoothing out wrinkles, the injection can also be applied to stave off muscle and prevent future wrinkles and forehead lines.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport is classified under a group of injections known as neuromodulators. This treatment works by reducing muscle activity around the injected area. An injector introduces it directly into your muscles along five key points above and between the eyebrows. As the muscles relax, the skin they are responsible for moving becomes smoother, and wrinkles fade away.
The Dysport injections take about five minutes, although you may spend more time in the doctor’s office during preparation. You can expect to start seeing results in just a few days.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Dysport?
Any adult below the age of 65 may go for Dysport to reduce the appearance of glabellar wrinkles. However, you should avoid getting the treatment if you are allergic to cow’s milk or don’t pair well with any other botulinum toxin products, including Botox, Jeuveau, and Xeomin.
Dysport is also not recommended for persons with a skin infection in the injection site, inflammation, deep facial scars, or droopy eyelids. What’s more, as a general rule of thumb, you want to have a consultation with your doctor before going on to get a Dysport injection.
