Have you ever thought about getting cosmetic injections to treat your wrinkles and fine lines? With over 3 million botulinum toxin injections occurring every year, wrinkle erasing injections are a popular, safe, and effective method to treat signs of aging on the face.
These injections are most commonly referred to as “botox”. However, Botox is only one brand of botulinum toxin injection that can be used. Dysport is another brand of botulinum toxin that is also used to treat the appearance of wrinkles.
At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, Dysport and Botox are some of the many different cosmetic injections we offer. Dysport injections will smooth out the signs of aging in your skin, resulting in a younger appearance in just a few days.
But what is Dysport, and how long does Dysport take to work? What are the differences between Dysport vs. Botox? Keep reading to find out all there is to know about Dysport.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a formulation and brand of botulinum toxin Type A, or more specifically of abobotulinumtoxinA. Dysport is injected into the skin and can be used for both medical and cosmetic purposes.
At Colair Beauty Loung & Med Spa, we use Dysport for cosmetic purposes only. This injection is used to treat the wrinkles that occur between your eyebrows, commonly referred to as “11 lines” or “frown lines”, forehead lines and “crows feet” or “smile lines” near the eyes.
The appearance of frown lines can become quite pronounced as you age, and these lines will typically grow deeper with time. Dysport can help erase the appearance of these stubborn wrinkles, and leave you with more youthful-looking skin.
How Does Dysport Treat Wrinkles?
Wrinkles form as a result of repetitive muscle movement in specific parts of the face. For example, raising and furrowing your eyebrows repeatedly over the course of many years can lead to forehead wrinkles and frown lines.
Dysport wrinkle injections target and reduce the muscle contractions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows.
It is only approved to treat frown lines. However, if you are concerned about the signs of aging on other parts of your face or body, there’s no need to worry!
At Colair, we offer a wide variety of anti-aging beauty solutions. From other anti-aging injectables to thorough facials and miraculous chemical peels, our team can help you decide which options work best for you and your skin!
The Results: How Long Does Dysport Take To Work?
One of the many benefits of Dysport is that it is fast-acting, with most people starting to see results within 2-3 days! The full and final results should only take a 7-14 days to appear, making Dysport one of the fastest wrinkle treatments.
As with all other anti-aging injectables, the results of Dysport are not permanent. Most people need Dysport touch-ups every 3-4 months, which provides an added benefit for first-time users that want to try wrinkle injections without a lengthier time commitment.
Dysport vs. Botox
Dysport and Botox are both anti-aging injectables that we proudly offer at Colair. These injections are both formulations and brands of botulinum toxin Type A. Though Dysport and Botox have similar qualities, there are also important differences between these two cosmetic injections.
The differences between Dysport and Botox come from the different proteins involved. As mentioned previously, Dysport is formulated with abobotulinumtoxinA. Botox, however, uses a slightly different botulinum toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA.
The different formulations of Botox and Dysport account for key differences between both treatments including:
- Treatment areas
- The time it takes for results
- How long do results last
- Cost of treatment
Treatment Areas: Botox vs. Dysport
Botox and Dysport are both used to treat wrinkles in the upper half of the face.
Dysport is approved to treat wrinkles between the eyebrows. These wrinkles, commonly called “frown lines”, can be effectively lessened with Dysport injections.
Botox can also treat wrinkles between the eyebrows. However, Botox can treat areas other than frown lines, including the crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) and forehead wrinkles.
Time It Takes For Results
One will start to see the results of Dysport after only 2-3 days, with final results appearing after one week.
Botox results may not appear until one week after injection, with results taking as long as one month to appear on the face.
How Long Do Results Last?
Dysport and Botox wrinkle injections can last anywhere from 3-4 months, with some people seeing results for even longer.
Cost of Treatment
Between Dysport and Botox, Dysport is the most cost-effective option.
At Colair, one unit of Botox costs $10.50, whereas Dysport costs $4.50 per unit. However, with Dysport you need double the Botox units. In the end you may save a little with Dysport. This may be something to consider when deciding on which wrinkle injection suits you best, however both options will be thoroughly discussed with Colair’s Registered Nurse prior to treatment.
Benefits of Dysport
Dysport is a great and effective option for treating stubborn frown line wrinkles. The benefits of botox are numerous, and include:
- Fast results (2-3 days)
- No downtime
- Lasts 3-4 months
- Very effective at targeting frown line wrinkles
- Can be tailored to your specific cosmetic needs
