Patients ask, “How long does it take for Dysport to kick in?”By Dr. Mary Lupo
Dysport is safe and effective. It does not provide immediate results in the same way alternative injectables such as dermal fillers do. It is important for patients to understand the process that occurs with Dysport. Formulated with abobotulinum toxin A, this prescription medication helps in reducing the contractions of muscles in the facial area. It is found that when this occurs, the skin in these zones becomes smoother. Treatment improves the appearance of folds, lines, and wrinkles that may make a patient look older, tired, or angry. Dysport is just one of many injectables used at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology for turning back the hands of time.
Patients considering neuromodulator treatment often ask, “how long does it take for Dysport to kick in?” Dysport does not immediately eliminate wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can, because they are a gel like substance that adds volume wherever it is injected. They provide results while the patient in the dermatologist’s chair, and some provide on-going improvement. Dysport, however, along with similar products Botox and Xeomin, require up to a week before they function at their best. This is because it takes time for the medication to take effect within the muscles and time for the skin to smooth out.
