About Dysport®

There’s another name in the “wrinkle-busting force”, and it’s every bit as good as industry stalwarts like BOTOX® Cosmetic.  Dysport® is a proven treatment and has been around for close to two decades.

Governors MedSpa offers a range of Dysport® treatments. Whether you want to stop the first signs of wrinkles or want to rejuvenate and tone skin, lines and features, we have the answers. Our line of premium Dysport® treatments will:

Eliminate signs of wrinkles and fine lines

Lift the brow and cheek

Smoothen and tighten skin.

 

Wrinkles develop as muscles under the skin contract when we laugh, smile, frown or express emotions in any way. Over time, as the muscles contract and relax repeatedly, the skin starts to show ‘patterns.’ Wrinkles, in essence, are the visible signs of these patterns. Dysport® works by countering the effects of the muscles under skin, and by weakening its ability to contract. It stops the skin from creasing, and leaves you with even, smooth skin you’ll love to show off.

As a treatment, Dysport® is similar to BOTOX® COSMETIC® and belongs to the same drug family. Dysport® is cheaper per unit, although you need more units to get the same results as BOTOX® COSMETIC®. That means, for some treatment types, Dysport® may be a more cost-effective alternative. For instance, for very small lines and wrinkles that require just a few injections, Dysport® may be the clear favorite. But it also shines when it comes to more deep-seated wrinkles, lifting the skin from underneath and giving a smooth, even texture. Dysport® delivers immediate results. Our clients say they typically see results within the first 24 to 48 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic have the same active molecule, which is the toxin that causes botulism (in dramatically higher doses.) It is a protein that is encased in other non-toxin proteins, so the difference is that Dysport® has fewer of these so it is a smaller molecule. What this means in practice is that it spreads a little bit more and may take effect about a day sooner. In some areas, there is a softer transition from the affected area to the unaffected area, for a “softer” look. They both last the same amount of time.

If you’re under 65 and seeking treatment to temporarily improve the look of wrinkles between the eyebrows, ask your specialist if Dysport is right for you. But before you begin, read below to help you make the safest, most informed decision.

Our clients typically start to see the results within one to two weeks of receiving the treatment. Results can last up to 4 months.

As with any injection into the skin a small “bump” and redness may occur at the site of injection. These will correct themselves within 30 minutes or less. Most people return to work or social activities immediately post procedure with Dysport. You need to avoid pushing or rubbing on the treatment area, as well as reclining or laying down flat for approximately 4 hours post Dysport. During this same time frame, you are encouraged to exercise the muscles within the treatment area as much as possible.

Pre & Post Treatment Care

Before Dysport® Injection

Ingestion of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase the chances of bruising and/or swelling. No anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc.), aspirin, Vitamin E, or Ginko Biloba one week prior to treatment. This will reduce the possible side effects of bruising and/or swelling in area(s) of treatment. You cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding to receive treatment.
