- Posted on: Sep 15 2017
Similar to Botox, Dysport has started to take over the cosmetic industry— having more and more people choosing Dysport as their method of getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Derived from the same ingredient as Botox (botulinum toxin A), Dysport is a bit different from Botox and stands out on its own. To help ensure that you are satisfied with your results, we have created a brief article listing three things to know about Dysport. Read on to learn more.
One of the first things to know about an injectable like Dysport is that because it is a non-invasive way to alleviate fine lines and wrinkles, it is also temporary. Depending on how deep your wrinkles are and how well your facial muscles react to Dysport, you can expect it to last an average of 3-6 months. After which, you will have to get more injections.
Unlike non-invasive procedures like laser treatments that are still painful and require a topical anesthetic, Dysport is considered to be pain-free. In fact, unless our patients request a topical anesthetic, we won’t administer it because it’s usually unnecessary.
Similar to Botox, Dysport injections can be done in our office on your lunch break in around 15 minutes. And because Dysport is considered to be non-invasive, you shouldn’t have to worry about any adverse side-effects that will have your coworkers questioning where you were on your lunch break.
Dysport is a new injectable that Dr. Barry Goldman likes to use on certain patients. During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Goldman will discuss whether Botox or Dysport is a better option for you.
