What are Dysport Injections?

Dysport is a brand name of botulinum toxin type A, a medication that relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is injected directly into the muscle and works by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the area, preventing them from contracting. This results in smoother skin with fewer visible wrinkles and less defined lines. The most common areas treated with Dysport are between the eyebrows, around the eyes, on the forehead, and along the jawline.  The results of treatments typically last for three to four months before you will need another round of injections. 

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport injections work by reducing muscle activity in areas where wrinkles have formed due to overactivity of underlying muscles. It does this by blocking signals from nerves to the muscles, which relaxes them and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The effects of Dysport can last for up to 4 months, so it’s important to get regular injections in order to maintain results.

Who Is a Candidate for Treatment?

Anyone who has visible wrinkles and fine lines on their face may be a good candidate for Dysport injections. This includes people who have deep frown lines between their brows or crow’s feet around their eyes. Generally speaking, Dysport is best for those who are in their 40s or 50s as it is not recommended for individuals under 18 years old.

Who Should Avoid Dysport?

Although Dysport can be used safely by most adults over 18 years old, there are some exceptions. Those with certain medical conditions such as myasthenia gravis should not use this treatment due to potential side effects or interactions with medications they may be taking. Those with an allergy to botulinum toxins should also avoid using this product as it can cause serious reactions including difficulty breathing and swallowing. Additionally, individuals with skin infection at the injection site should wait until it has cleared up before considering this treatment option. Lastly, it’s important to speak with your doctor before getting any injectable treatments if you have a history of facial paralysis or Bell’s palsy as these conditions can increase your risk of side effects from Dysport injections.

Thinking About Trying Dysort Injections?

Dysport injections offer a safe, effective way for women (and men) over 18 years old looking to reduce fine lines between their eyebrows without undergoing surgery or other more invasive treatments such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing. It is important that those considering getting this type of treatment be aware that there are some safety precautions that must be taken prior to receiving them; people with skin infections near where they plan on receiving injections, those with neuromuscular diseases such as myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, pregnant women and nursing mothers should all avoid using this type of injection altogether due its lack of safety when used in these cases. Those allergic to cow’s milk proteins should also stay away from this kind of injection since it does contain trace amounts of it too!
