How Long Does it Take for Dysport® to Work?

Our facial expressions help us share a wide range of emotions. They also cause our facial muscles to pull on the skin, creating lines and wrinkles. Dysport® targets lines caused by muscle movement. You can look younger and more relaxed with just a few injections, and you can see results within a few days. 

Dysport Oneonta

What is Dysport®?

All injectable wrinkle relaxers, including Dysport® and Botox®, use derivatives of botulinum toxin. Used in tiny doses, Dysport® only affects the target muscle, leaving the surrounding areas unaffected, so you keep all your natural facial expressions. By stopping the communication between the muscle and the nerve that controls it, Dysport® lets lines and wrinkles become smooth and enables the skin to relax.

How Does Dysport® Work?

Wrinkle relaxers like Dysport® work by blocking the action of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter communicates with muscles and tells them to contract. By stopping this communication, Dysport® lets the muscle stop working and releases the tension on the skin. The most common areas for treatment include the forehead, between the brows, and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.

How Long Does it Take for Dysport® to Work?

You will receive injections of Dysport® directly into the muscles causing your lines and wrinkles. This lets Dysport® start working on the nerve signals right away. Most people see results within two to three days. It may take another day or two to see the complete improvement of your lines and wrinkles. 

What Results Will I See With Dysport®?

You will see the treated areas become smoother, letting you look more relaxed and energized. You can expect Dysport® to last three to four months before needing maintenance treatment. If you do not want any more treatments, your muscle and nerve will return to normal when the Dysport® wears off. 

You can benefit from Dysport® even if you do not have wrinkles. Many younger people have begun choosing wrinkle relaxers to prevent expression lines and wrinkles from forming. By preventing muscle activity in the area, Dysport® can keep it looking smooth as long as you want to maintain it. 

How Much is Dysport®?

Some providers charge by the unit for products like Dysport®. This can lead to unfair pricing or substandard results caused by using too little product. At New York Skin and Vein: now part of Schweiger Dermatology Groups, we use the more transparent method of charging by the area. This frees your injection specialist to focus on achieving outstanding results and not on how many units have been used.
