Made with the same purified protein as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is an exciting injectable alternative that’s been cleared by the FDA. If you’ve been considering BOTOX or another treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, maybe it’s time to try Dysport.

A BOTOX® Alternative
Dysport differs from BOTOX Cosmetic treatments in several key ways:
- Dysport tends to spread further from the injection site than BOTOX, making it better suited for treating larger areas.
- Results of Dysport treatments are usually visible sooner than results from BOTOX. Dysport results should begin to be visible after 1 or 2 days, while initial BOTOX results usually take 3 to 5 days.
Test drive your new look
Visualize the results that can be achieved from your procedure with computer simulations from the VECTRA 3D imaging system. This advanced technology can help you and your surgeon to determine the best approach for creating the results you want.
But how do these innovative wrinkle treatments work? First, it’s important to understand that they treat specific facial lines called “dynamic wrinkles.” Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles over time. Dysport and BOTOX work by relaxing facial muscles, allowing the skin to lie smooth and wrinkle-free.
Treatment with Dysport is a very quick, in-office procedure that causes only minimal discomfort (typically compared to an insect bite). No downtime is required, so you can get back to your usual activities immediately. Results should be visible in 1 to 2 days and will last for up to 6 months. The procedure is easily repeatable, so you can keep your youthful-looking results fresh.
Many people choose to combine their Dysport treatments with dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Dermal fillers can add volume to smooth folds and restore youthful facial fullness. Others choose skin resurfacing techniques such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels. If you’re interested in more permanent facial rejuvenation, you may want to consider a surgical procedure such as a face lift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery.
