Dysport is a type of injectable medication that is used to treat various medical and cosmetic conditions. It is made from a type of botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxin that works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, thereby causing temporary paralysis. Dysport is like other botulinum toxin products, such as Botox and Xeomin, but it has some unique properties that make it a popular choice for many patients.
Dysport was first approved by the FDA in 2009 for the treatment of cervical dystonia, a condition that causes involuntary muscle contractions in the neck and shoulders. Since then, it has been approved for the treatment of other movement disorders, such as spasticity and blepharospasm, as well as for cosmetic purposes, such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The uses of Dysport have a wide range of medical and cosmetic applications. In terms of medical uses, Dysport is commonly used to treat movement disorders such as cervical dystonia, spasticity, and blepharospasm. It is also used to treat chronic migraines, a condition that causes severe headaches and other symptoms. Dysport works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, thereby reducing the severity and frequency of these conditions. In terms of cosmetic uses, Dysport is commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is particularly effective in treating dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscle contractions, such as those that occur when we smile or frown. Dysport works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for these contractions, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The composition of Dysport is a neurotoxin that is composed of botulinum toxin type A as the active ingredient, human serum albumin as a stabilizing agent, and lactose as a bulking agent. It works by blocking the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, which prevents the muscle from contracting. Human serum albumin is a protein that helps to stabilize the botulinum toxin type A and protect it from degradation. Lactose is a sugar that is used as a bulking agent to help the solution maintain its volume.
The mechanism of Dysport works by blocking the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for transmitting nerve impulses to the muscle. By blocking the release of acetylcholine, Dysport prevents the muscle from contracting, which results in temporary paralysis of the targeted muscle. The effect is reversible as the nerve endings regenerate over time, which allows the muscle to regain its function.
The clinical applications of Dysport is primarily used for cosmetic purposes, such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport is commonly used to help treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Dysport is also used for therapeutic purposes, such as treating muscle spasms and excessive sweating. It has been found to be effective in treating various medical conditions, including cerebral palsy, chronic migraine, and cervical dystonia. Dysport works by relaxing the muscles, which can help to reduce muscle spasms and improve range of motion.
Most people receive Dysport injections every 90 to 120 days, or every 3 or 4 months. Experts recommend waiting at least 90 days between Dysport treatments to allow the neurotoxin to be eliminated from the body before resuming treatment.
One of the biggest benefits of Dysport injection treatments is that you will see fast and effective results. Depending on your specific treatment area, the results of your Dysport injections can be expected to last approximately three to four months.
We often recommend to our patients that they will likely only need about three to four sessions per year to maintain your results. This contrasts with other cosmetic injectables on the market, which may require four to six treatments per year for optimal results.
