Dysport is the new Botox alternative.
It came on to the market two years ago and is gaining attention. Known as the BOTOX alternative. Depending the dosage relative to Botox, Dysport should last just as long as Botox (3-4 months).
Some of my patients have noticed the onset of action for Dysport is shorter (1-2 days) compared to Botox (3-4 days). I feel both work extremely well, and when injected one receives great results.
Dysport (Reloxin) is the first and only neuromuscular blocking toxin injectable to be developed since BOTOX® Cosmetic. A safe, proven way to treat premature skin wrinkling and facial creases, Dysport injections work by relaxing tense facial muscles and evening out skin's appearance.
Like Botox, Dysport's key ingredient is the botulinum toxin type A. Dysport's injectable formula can be used on most facial areas where prominent folds, lines and wrinkles are evident.
What Is Dysport?
This injectable treatment for wrinkles is made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as Botox. Dysport (formally Reloxin) received the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a wrinkle treatment in the spring of 2009, but it has been smoothing out facial folds and lines in Europe, South America, and elsewhere for several years. Like Botox, this injectable was originally developed in the 1990s to treat neuromuscular disorders.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport is injected directly into the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, temporarily immobilizing them. It specifically targets the glabullar muscles — the ones that form creases on your forehead when you frown.
Dysport diffuses a bit farther from the injection point than Botox: one to three centimeters compared to Botox’s one centimeter. This means that fewer injections are needed, but it also means that doing the injections must be done by a very skilled Injectionist to ensure that the drug does not spread to nearby muscles and cause eyelid and/or eyebrow drooping or other unwanted side effects.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results begin to appear within one to seven days after treatment, with day three being the average (In other words, half the patients treated see wrinkle-smoothing results before day three, and half see results afterward.) Dysport contains less protein than Botox, so the body tends to break it down more slowly. The studies are mixed, however, about whether the results last longer than Botox.
