3 Advantages of Choosing Dysport® to Reduce Wrinkles

 3 Advantages of Choosing Dysport® to Reduce Wrinkles

After Botox® was introduced as a cosmetic treatment for upper facial wrinkles more than 20 years ago, anti-aging has never been the same. You no longer had to go through jars of useless cold creams and lotions, searching for a way to erase wrinkles from your forehead and eyes. A simple series of injections did it for you … for months at time.

Since 2002, many more effective anti-aging technologies and treatments have emerged, which allows women and men to put off — or avoid altogether — risky plastic surgeries. Success, of course, begets success, which is why other neuromodulators such as FDA-approved Dysport® have emerged to take their place beside Botox. 

At Specialists in Dermatology, with offices in The Woodlands, Texas, and Houston, Texas, our expert dermatologists offer anti-wrinkle treatments with the neuromodulators Botox and Dysport. Though both are effective, each has differences that may make it your favored choice. Following are a few advantages of Dysport.

1. Dysport is faster.

If you use Botox to treat your forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, you already know that it can take up to two weeks before you see results. In contrast, Dysport works a lot faster. In fact, most women and men get wrinkle relief within 48 hours of their Dysport injections. 

In other words, once any side effects from your treatment subside, your results are ready. There will be no more waiting around for your dynamic facial muscles to relax and wondering if your treatment worked. Within a day or two, you’ll see a noticeable difference in the smoothness of your skin and the attractiveness of your expressions.

2. Dysport lasts longer.

Botox usually lasts for about three months, while Dysport’s effects tend to linger for about four months. That’s an extra four weeks during which time you don’t have to worry about your worry lines reappearing!

We schedule your touch-ups when you get your first treatment. That way, you know ahead of time when you’re due to calm down your dynamic muscles again, before they have time to wreak damage on your skin.

3. Dysport is more cost-effective.

Dysport has a wider “spread” than Botox does. Each injection site covers an area of about 3 cm. 

Even though you need to use more units with Dysport than you do with Botox, Dysport costs less than its better-known counterpart. Both neuromodulators are reconstituted with sterile saline. But Botox is freeze dried and must be stored either frozen at -5°C or refrigerated between 2 to 8°C until it’s reconstituted.

Dysport, in contrast, requires no refrigeration until after it’s reconstituted. That means it costs less to ship and store Dysport; the savings are passed on to you.

Either achieves your goals

No matter whether you choose Dysport or Botox, each effectively and safely relaxes the dynamic muscles in your upper face and smooths out wrinkles caused by intense expressions. Both neuromodulators erase or minimize:
