Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable used for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in the face.
Dysport is very similar in composition to Botox as they are both injectable treatments of botulinum toxin Type A. Some studies have shown that Dysport acts faster than Botox as some patients have seen results in as little as one to two days (vs. three to four days for Botox). Some studies have also suggested that Dysport lasts longer than Botox (Dysport lasts about six months vs. three to four months for Botox).
Dysport has been successfully used in Europe since the early nineties. It has been FDA-approved in the US since April 2009.
The potential side effects of Dysport are similar to those of Botox. They mostly include swelling, bruising or a burning sensation during injection and can be mitigated by placing ice on the injection site before and after the procedure.
