Does Dysport® Last Longer in the Face Than BOTOX®?
Whether in person, in pictures, or on video chat, your face is often the first thing people notice about you. It’s a defining feature of how you look, and things like wrinkles and fine lines can take away from its beauty. With Dysport wrinkle relaxer injections, Dr. Darrel Pierce helps patients craft a facial appearance they love at Elan Med Spa and Clinic in Waxahachie, TX. Dysport, which is similar to BOTOX, achieves the same results – with a few minor differences.
What is Dysport wrinkle relaxer?
Every time you smile, laugh, frown, or move your face, these repetitive facial movements and expressions take a toll on your skin. Making these movements is unavoidable, and it can lead to what’s called dynamic wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles make the facial muscles tighten, causing the skin to develop a line that is visible – even when you’re not making that facial movement anymore. What you’re left with are lines around your mouth, eyes, and face.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with these wrinkles and fine lines.
Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that softens wrinkles and fine lines caused by dynamic movements, like smiling. Made to specifically target dynamic wrinkles, Dysport temporarily blocks signals to the muscle. As a result, the lines can smooth out in a natural-looking way that doesn’t make your face look “frozen.”
How is Dysport different from BOTOX?
Dysport is similar to BOTOX in that it has the same goal – to smooth out dynamic wrinkles. However, there are two major differences.
One, Dysport usually leads to results more quickly than BOTOX. In just 1 – 3 days, Dysport will work to reduce the severity of your facial wrinkles for a smoother, softer appearance patients love.
Two, Dysport often lasts longer compared to BOTOX (and it can cover more areas of your face). Dysport wrinkle relaxer injections will last up to four months. With follow-up treatments at our office in Waxahachie, TX, you can extend your results even longer.
How is Dysport different from a filler?
Dysport and BOTOX are both wrinkle relaxers, which are different fillers. Fillers are made to smooth static wrinkles. Static wrinkles develop because of a lack of elasticity in your skin. The job of a filler is to plump up that area to smooth it out.
Wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, target dynamic wrinkles. Lines from smiling, frowning, and laughing are all considered dynamic wrinkles. Dysport relaxes that muscle underneath the skin to smooth out the area from dynamic wrinkles, leading to a refreshed and younger look.
How can I extend my results from Dysport?
While Dysport is longer lasting than other wrinkle relaxers for most people, the results can be different for every person. There are ways to extend your results, including caring for your skin using sunscreen, using a gentle cleanser, and using a quality face moisturizer. Also, athletes tend to see the maximum benefits of Dysport.
You can also schedule follow-up injections at Elan Med Spa and Clinic. Dr. Pierce will create a plan to help you achieve the smoother-looking appearance you deserve.
