Considering Dysport ® treatments in Vancouver? Dysport injections reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and other facial wrinkles and lines caused by years of repeated muscle contractions. Dysport is a quick, non-invasive treatment that offers noticeable improvement in just a few days.

Although Dysport and Botox ® are both neuromodulators  used to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, they are different preparations that should not be used interchangeably. A consultation with an experienced medical doctor will determine if Dysport is an appropriate treatment for you.

What is Dysport ®?

Dysport is a neuromodulator containing Botulinum Toxin Type A (like Botox) that blocks the signal sent from the nerves to muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle contractions that cause dynamic wrinkles. As we age, the cumulative effect of repeated muscle contractions results in frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and bunny nose (or bunny scrunch) lines. Dysport injections can improve these wrinkles quickly without the downtime associated with surgery. Dysport does not affect the sensory nerves so patients have normal feeling in the area that is treated.

In addition to its aesthetic uses, Dysport injections – like Botox – may be prescribed for the treatment of excessive sweating, migraines and TMJ.

Am I a good candidate?

If you have visible frown lines, forehead wrinkles, or nose wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for Dysport treatments.
