Dysport® – the Botox® Alternative

#fancy-title-5904084ea42a0 a{ color: #ffffff; }

Dysport is the new alternative to traditional Botox treatments that many patients have decided is the right choice for them.

Both Botox® and Dysport® are neuromodulators that have similar mechanisms of action, relying on injections of the product to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. When this substance is injected into the facial muscles, it blocks the signal transfers from the nerves to the muscles, serving to relax the muscles. By preventing the muscles from contracting, the wrinkles and creases of the face will relax as well, giving the face a smoother and more youthful appearance.

What are the differences between Dysport and Botox?

Some research has shown that Dysport may be quicker acting than Botox.

Whereas the effects of Botox® may take action somewhere between three to five days, Dysport normally only takes one or two. Also, because of the difference in preparation of the solutions, Dysport® may last longer than Botox®, as the body takes longer to break down the formulation.

It is proven that both Dysport and Botox® are effective in smoothing wrinkles and reducing signs of aging. Dr. Torgerson will be able to help you decide which option suits your specific needs the best.

Who can benefit from Dysport®?

#fancy-title-5904084ea5c9a a{ color: #ffffff; }

Anyone who would like to reduce facial wrinkles for a more youthful look is a candidate for this treatment.

As we age, the natural pull of gravity causes skin to sag and form creases. We also are constantly making facial expressions. These repetitive movements cause fine lines to forms, creating small wrinkles and creases. These will deepen with movement, just as any muscles enlarges with working out and exercise. Some common areas patients of Dr. Torgerson choose to have treated are:

  • Forehead creases above the eyebrows
  • Lines and wrinkles stemming from the edges of the eyes (commonly known as crow’s-feet)
  • Frown lines forming a “1” or an “11” in between your eyebrows
  • Any wrinkles in the facial area you are unhappy with

Other more unique areas where Dysport® and Botox® can be used are in the bands around the neck, around the mouth, or in a procedure called Masseter reduction.

Some patients of Dr. Torgerson report their wrinkles starting to disappear just 24 hours after the Dysport® injections. Within two to three days the effects will be fully apparent. Because there is a risk of small bruising, some patients may have to cover up with makeup, but usually the bruise is tiny or imperceptible and this also is unnecessary. Within a few days, the treatment will leave you looking great and radiant in your new smooth skin.
