What is Dysport?By Dr. Mary Lupo
What is Dysport?Dysport is a neuromodulator, similar to other popular brands such as Botox and Xeomin. This neuromodulator works by reducing the contraction of specific muscles. When Dysport is injected into a muscle, it reduces muscle contraction to smooth the skin above. Most patients will begin to see the results from Dysport approximately five days or so after their initial injection and enjoy the results for approximately six months.
Where is Dysport used?Dysport is best used on the facial areas where dynamic wrinkles and folds have formed. The most popular areas to use this injectable are:
- The “elevens” between the eyebrows
- Forehead folds
- Crow’s feet
The process of Dysport injectionsPatients first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo and her team to determine if they are appropriate candidates. Some wrinkles and folds are better addressed using dermal fillers such as Juvéderm or Restylane. Once patients have chosen Dysport, just a few minutes are needed as Dr. Mary Lupo pinpoints the locations for injections to achieve the best results. Patients leave the office and notice gradual improvements over a week.
