Dysport is a cosmetic injection that is introduced into your skin by a plastic surgeon. You will receive small amounts of medicine in order to paralyze and relax the muscles in your face. Dr. Banks will inject the medicine into the specific area where there is a noticeable wrinkle, causing the muscles in that area to relax and produce a difference in your wrinkles. After you receive your injection, you will notice a difference in your fine lines and wrinkles within one to two days. The injection will have an effect on the appearance of the wrinkles for up to one year if you take care of your face. Dysport is often compared to Botox, as they share common active ingredients. Patients who want to receive cosmetic injections should talk to Dr. Banks about the difference between the two medicines. Botox lasts for 3 months compared to Dysport that lasts for 12 months. Botox takes 3 to 5 days to see results, compared to 1 to 2 days for Dysport.
Along with other medications, Dysport has a few side effects. Some of the milder side effects include swelling, bruising and numbness at the injection site. A severe side effect that occurs in some patients is the possible formation of antibodies in the patient’s body. Antibodies should only form when your body recognizes a foreign body such as a pathogen. If your body produces them after getting injected with Dysport, then these antibodies could neutralize the effects of the drug and prevent it from working.
