What is Dysport®?

Dysport® is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that utilizes Botulinum Toxin Type A to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Similar to Botox, Dysport® works by relaxing the underlying muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. By doing so, it smooths out the skin and offers a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The treatment involves a series of small injections strategically placed to target specific areas, leaving you with a refreshed and youthful look.

What’s the difference between Dysport® and Botox®?


Both brands have very similar modes of action. To keep things very simple, at the site of injection, the drug blocks the signal between the nerves and the muscle, so the muscle can’t cause wrinkles for a period of time.

Dysport® and Botox® units are not equal, the ratio of Dysport® to Botox® units is generally 2.5:1 (2.5 times more Dysport® units per 1 unit of Botox®).

The active ingredient (Botulinum toxin A) is the exact same in both medications, however the protein structure surrounding each molecule is slightly different.

Regardless of which product you use, full effect still takes two weeks. The effects of Botox® are usually noticed within 3-5 days. There are some clinical studies suggesting Dysport® can show results as early as two days. I will stress at this point that, from my experience, what is true for one client will be different for another.

The effects of Botox® and Dysport® both last about the same amount of time, up to 4 months. Clinical studies have shown that the quantity of the active Botulinum Toxin A injected determines the duration of action, rather than whether it was Botox® or Dysport® injected.

You may have heard that Dysport® spreads slightly further from the site of injection than Botox® does. This is a myth, particularly when applying the products recommended dilutions. However we do know that both products can spread from the site of injection. We also know this risk is higher as the dose increases.

While Dysport® can offer fantastic benefits, there are certain contraindications and precautions to keep in mind. It’s important to consult with our trained professionals before undergoing the treatment, especially if:

– You are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
– You are breastfeeding, as the effects of Dysport® on nursing infants are not known.
– You have a history of severe allergies or allergic reactions.
– You have a skin infection or any condition at the planned injection site.
– You are taking certain medications that could interfere with the treatment.

Our team at Tulip Dental is dedicated to ensuring your safety and satisfaction throughout every step of the process. During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly discuss your medical history and any potential contraindications to determine if Dysport® is the right choice for you.

At Tulip Dental, your health and safety are paramount. Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we conduct a thorough consultation to assess your suitability for the treatment and to address any concerns you may have.

Just yourself, we will remove any make-up on the treatment area and disinfect the area before treatment.

Immediately following Dysport, the sites of injection may be red, raised up, or sensitive. This tends to go away within a few hours and can be relieved with a cold pack. The sites may also bleed slightly, which can be relieved with gauze or tissue held with light pressure over the site.

  • Avoid cosmetic treatments such as laser, peels, facials, micro-needling or micro-dermabrasion for 2 weeks after treatment with Botox.
  • Peak results will be seen 14 days post-treatment.
Most patients see the peak results disappear at the 4 month mark but as the muscle has weakened over that time the muscle will not contract with the same strength, resulting in lessened wrinkles.

As with any skin care treatment, we always recommend patients wear daily sunscreen. Nothing works better than combating future wrinkles or skin discoloration!
