Dysport is an advanced injectable wrinkle treatment. It’s a kind of botulinum toxin – the same toxin which is used in Botox – and is injected into the muscles of the face. Dysport in Albuquerque relaxes the targeted muscles in order to smooth away wrinkles and prevent future wrinkles from forming. The procedure is mainly used to treat frown lines, otherwise known as glabellar lines.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport relaxing contracted muscles under the skin where it’s been injected, leaving behind a smoother, tauter face. The injection works by restricting facial movements, leading to the prevention of existing wrinkles from deepening as well as the formation of new ones.
This injectable treatment is only minimally invasive, meaning there are no scalpels or incisions required. The final outcome can be observed within as little as a week of treatment.
Like Botox, these injections can also be used in treating certain muscle spasms that occur as a result of preexisting neurological conditions.
Which Wrinkles Can It Treat?
Dysport can treat a number of facial lines and wrinkles. It is often used for glabellar lines between the brows, and it can also be used for horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, chin wrinkles, and lipstick lines.
How Does It Work?
Dysport is a neuromodulator. Xeomin and Botox are other minimally invasive cosmetic injectables that fall under this class. The common thread among all of these neuromodulators is that they all use some form of the botulinum toxin.
Dysport reduces wrinkles and lines by injecting a minimal amount of the neuromodulator directly into the tissue. The neuromodulator blocks nerve impulses to the muscles. This allows the overused facial muscles to relax back into their at-rest position. This in turn allows the overlying skin to lie flat and smooth.
What Is the Procedure Like?
The Dysport procedure can have you looking and feeling younger with a few injections. At the start of the procedure, the treatment areas are marked. The treatment typically requires more or less five injections around your forehead and eyebrow area. The process only lasts for a few minutes, and you can walk out of the office immediately after you’re done receiving your injections.
There is virtually no recovery time or downtime needed after a treatment session, so you can go about your life as usual and even return to work. Patients often get Dysport injections during their lunch break.
Take special care to avoid rubbing the injection sites. A minor degree of bruising and swelling is normal and will fade shortly. You should wait for a minimum of two hours before engaging in any strenuous activities like exercise.
The cost of a Dysport treatment varies from med spa to med spa. The number of units required to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals also determines the final price.

“Diane was such a doll. She was very thorough, and explained everything so I had no questions to ask before or felt left in the dark. Her place is too cute and the atmosphere is so create and happy. The staff is happy and chat with you like everyone’s friends. They even called to check on me to make sure I was feeling alright the next day. They really care about your well-being and not just get them in and out type of place. I was referred her by another nurse and I’m happy I found Diversions. Sweet & quaint.

Diane was so honest with me and she has gained my upmost respect.”
