What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injection that has abobotulinumtoxinA, which is Botulinum toxin type A. It’s created from the bacteria that is responsible for causing botulism. The botulinum toxin acts by obstructing the muscles’ nerve activity, which leads to an impermanent slowdown of muscle activity. Its original purpose was to treat cervical dystonia in adults. However, it’s also an efficient method to resolve muscle spasms and cure stiffness in the arms, hands, legs, and feet. It’s also a popular solution in the beauty industry, where it can help improve the condition of the face by reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Dysport injections are considered a noninvasive procedure that offers a temporary solution. The results and effects in the body could last up to five months. However, there are potential risks of this treatment method as the botulinum toxin found in Dysport can travel to other parts of the body and could lead to serious concerns.
What’s the difference between Dysport and Botox?
Dysport vs Botox
There is a common misconception that Dysport and Botox are the same thing. However, they are different and carry unique properties and characteristics. Botox is mainly used to resolve and remove forehead lines and crow’s feet. It’s also effective in eliminating glabellar lines. On the other hand, Dysport is only officially approved for the elimination of glabellar lines. Both Dysport and Botox only take a few minutes to inject and the procedure is relatively simple and quick.
Does Botox or Dysport last longer?
Dysport results usually last for about three to four months but could also be vivid for up to five months depending on the amount used and the treatment method. If you want to continue seeing results, another procedure will be necessary. On the other hand, Botox results may last for half a year. However, the results will be evident about a month after the procedure, whereas Dysport results are vivid a few days after.
