How does Dysport Work?

One of the most effective ways for you to reduce these wrinkles without getting surgery is with Dysport in San Diego. This treatment is relatively new on the scene compared to other injectable products, but it works just as well as its competition and may even produce quicker results. Dysport works by relaxing the muscles, making it so that they do not receive the signals from the nerves to contract. If the muscles do not move, the wrinkles above them will go away. The good news is that only the injected muscles are affected, so you will still be able to move the rest of your face freely, allowing you to show any and all emotions that you desire. Once injected, the results will last about three to four months and, if necessary, you can receive a new treatment every 90 days.

Dysport vs. BOTOX

Dysport and BOTOX are both popular neurotoxin injectables used for reducing facial wrinkles. While these products share many similarities, there are some key differences to consider. 

Dysport typically acts more quickly, with effects noticeable within a few days, compared to BOTOX's one-week timeline. This makes Dysport the ideal treatment for patients who are looking to achieve results fast. 

Dysport has a broader diffusion area, making it suitable for treating larger areas. Patients should determine exactly what areas they are looking to treat to determine which option is best for them. 

Both have a strong safety record when administered by a skilled practitioner. Dr. Ataii has helped numerous patients address facial wrinkles with both BOTOX and Dysport. 

The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference, pricing, and how each individual responds. During the consultation with Dr. Ataii, he will ask you about your goals with the treatment and take note of your condition to determine which product is best for you.
