Dysport is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to treat the abnormal head position and neck pain that happens with cervical dystonia (CD) in adults. It is also used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
CD is caused by muscle spasms in the neck. These spasms cause the abnormal position of the head and often neck pain.
There is a large success rate with Dysport. Over 130,000 patients “tried it”, and only 2.7% chose to “leave it”.
Dysport Vs. Botox Treatment
Dysport was later developed to rival Botulinum toxin in the cosmetic industry. Dysport gained traction because it appears to be even more effective at treating facial wrinkles than Botox. It appears to be more effective, when the client is performing a facial expression, versus when the face is in a state of rest. It appears that the claim comes, because Dysport works quicker than Botox, due to it being a smaller protein than Botox.It is also cheaper than Botox. Dysport was already common in the European market when it becomes available in the United States. Dysport’s effects last a little bit longer than the effects of Botulinum toxin. Dysport can be used effectively on people who have become insistent to Botox. Dysport can spread over a wider localized area of the face than Botox. We proudly serve Botox in Ventura County.

How does Dysport work?
Dysport is injected into wrinkles and static lines between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes. It blocks nerve impulses from reaching facial muscles that result in expression lines. Dysport, therefore, relaxes the muscles to create a smooth, youthful appearance.
How long does Dysport last?
Results last for four to six months after the procedure.
Can I use Dysport if I’ve had Botox injections?
Absolutely! Unless you’ve had an adverse reaction to botulinum toxin A, you may undergo Dysport treatment.
Who shouldn’t receive Dysport injections?
In addition to the aforementioned allergy, those with allergies to any Dysport ingredient (botulinum toxin A, human albumin, and cow’s milk protein) are not candidates for the procedure. It’s also essential to let your doctor know about any medications you’re taking if you’ve had past trouble swallowing, or have diabetes. Heart rhythm problems should be noted as well.
