Dysport in Manhattan, New York

With the domination of Botox in the neuromodulator market, competing formulas like Dysport often go unnoticed by those looking to correct dynamic wrinkles throughout the face. However, Dysport’s unique formula can be used in certain circumstances to personalize a facial rejuvenation procedure, as it may be more useful than Botox for some people.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a neuromodulator similar to Botox Cosmetic, with botulinum toxin a as its active ingredient. It’s formulated slightly differently, as its molecular structure is a little less heavy than Botox, allowing it to spread more throughout the skin before producing its effects. This may make it a better choice for some people’s wrinkles compared to Botox, although the best way to know which formula is best for you is to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Wallach.

What Can Dysport Treat?

Dysport is FDA approved to treat glabellar lines in the forehead, also known as frown lines. These are wrinkles that form when making certain facial expressions, most obviously when frowning. It can be considered to be used in other areas of the face in procedures known as “off-label” uses.

Because Dysport’s formula is less heavy than Botox, it has a tendency to spread more evenly throughout the injected area, which make it not a good solution for wrinkles that require very precise injections, such as for crow’s feet or around the mouth. At the same time, this could be a benefit for people who want a larger area treated, like the forehead or brow area, where precision is still important, but the affected area can be larger.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dysport?

Dysport is safe for nearly any adult who wants to get rid of wrinkles that form when making certain facial expressions. To ensure you don’t have any contraindications for this treatment and Dysport’s formula specifically, Dr. Wallach always performs a routine medical examination and asks about your medical history before administering neuromodulators like Dysport.

The Dysport Procedure
