What are Dysport Injection?

Benefits of Dysport Injection

Dysport is a popular cosmetic injection working towards temporary enhancement of the facial appearance. It works on moderate to severe frown lines of the face, especially targeting wrinkle lines, which appear between the eyebrows. Glabellar lines form with the constant movement of the forehead muscles. These are dynamic lines controlled by the repeated muscular movement of the face. It has been an effective treatment similar to Botox Injections for forehead wrinkles since its debut in the world of cosmetic injectables. It was formally known as Reloxin and was developed with the intention to find a cure for neuromuscular disorders. That’s why Dysport is also considered as a cure for cervical dystonia
The injections can cause pain and discomfort and making it easy to return to normal activities. Cervical dystonia has no cure, but the condition can be effectively treated with proper medication. Dysport is among best-known drugs in the treatment of cervical dystonia.


How Dysport injection works?

It is a neurotoxin that has shown positive effects to paralyze muscles to which it is injected. The medicine is available in the form of injection, and for treating cervical dystonia; the drug is directly injected into the neck muscles that have caused the spasm. Dysport paralyzes that particular muscle with its neurotoxic capacity which enables the muscle to relax.

The Dysport treatment

Dysport act as an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocker, thus reducing the pain and the spasm of the muscle. The effect of the drug remains active for some time, and the dosage is modified according to the subsequent effects of the drug. Normally, 500 units of the drug are prescribed as the first dose in adult patients suffering from CD. The total dose is divided amongst the affected muscles of the neck, and the injection is given intramuscularly. The effect of the medication reduces over time and needs to be repeated after every 12 to 16 weeks or longer depending on the response of the patient.

The Work Mechanism of Dysport

Dysport is injected in between and over the eyebrows to reduce forehead wrinkles. The entire process takes place within half an hour. The injected solution temporarily weakens the muscle by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. There is a drastic reduction in the activity of the muscle, which prevents any muscular contraction. Lesser movements in the muscles check the formation of dynamic lines. The working mechanism of Dysport imitates that of Botox – they both freeze facial muscles on a temporary basis. Hence, it can be seen as a good alternative to Botox.

Is Dysport and Botox Interchangeable?

The answer is no. Even though Dysport and Botox are made from the same neurotoxin, their dosages are different. The target area of Dysport is between the eyebrow, whereas Botox works for reducing wrinkles in the forehead, mouth and eye area. There is also a new proceedure that botox injection for nose lift used for nose lift. There’s another difference. You need fewer injections of Dysport compared to Botox because the former diffuses farther deep in the skin than the latter. The former can diffuse up to 3 centimeters compared to 1 centimeter in case of latter. There are other services we offer like kybella which is to tighten extra fat under the chin.

Since the diffusion is deeper, patients should get it done by a skilled doctor. A wrong shot can spread the drug to other proximal muscles and cause drooping of the eyelid and numerous other unwanted side-effects. In between the first and second shot of Dysport, you should wait for at least 90 days. They both differ concerning strength and pricing. There are differences in strength and cost. To get a similar result, a patient needs Dysport dosage three times more than the other one. Considering all the above differences, it is very clear that these two injectables cannot be interchanged.
