What Is Dysport?

Dysport, an alternative to BOTOX®, is a cosmetic injectable used to soften the frown lines that frequently form between the eyebrows by reducing muscle activity. Dysport creates natural-looking and fast-acting results and has been used outside the US since 1991 before it was approved for aesthetic use in 2001. The FDA approved it for aesthetic use in the United States in 2009 as a temporary treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles between the brows, enabling us to create impressive results that will rejuvenate your look with minimal downtime and little to no recovery period. Dysport is the ideal “lunch break” procedure and is favored by our busy and active patients for its ability to quickly and effectively create ideal results. If you’d like to learn more about what Dysport can do for you, reach out to us at our Bethesda, Maryland location and speak with a member of our team to set up your initial consultation today.

Understanding Wrinkle Relaxers

While wrinkle reducers and dermal fillers are commonly used together, they work differently and are used to treat different lines. Wrinkle relaxers are made with proteins that are derived from botulinum toxin and work by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles through repeated movement (these are known as “dynamic wrinkles”). 

The most common dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid and are designed to add volume to the face where the aging process has caused the skin to sag or droop. Neurotoxins are used to treat the forehead and around the eyes, whereas fillers are injected in the cheeks and around the mouth.

How Long Will Dysport Results Last?

In more than 80 clinical study sites, it has been shown that Dysport will typically last up to three months. It is also said that the treatment “kicks in” after only a few days, whereas BOTOX can take up to five to seven days to take effect. Dysport may be your ideal treatment when results are needed sooner than later and is available at our Bethesda, Maryland office.

Dysport vs. BOTOX

Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery also offers patients Dysport and Daxxify, products that act in a similar manner to BOTOX.  In Dr. Porter’s experience, Dysport can provide a few advantages over BOTOX:

  • It tends to have a quicker onset of action.
  • Patients with extensive lines in the areas of the crow’s feet can expect excellent results.
  • Dysport doesn’t flatten the muscle as much as BOTOX and keeps the skin from taking on a shiny appearance.

Longer-Lasting Results

Pairing your Dysport injections with great skin care can help the results last longer! At our practice, Dr. Porter recommends the Sente Dermal Repair Cream to use at home in between treatments. It is clinically shown to diminish the appearance of wrinkles while improving skin tone and texture.
