Your FAQ Guide to Dysport Injections in Boca Raton

At 5th and Wellness Medical Spa in Boca Raton, we understand that choosing a cosmetic treatment, such as Dysport® injections, involves careful consideration. To help you make an informed decision, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions about Dysport, detailing what you can expect from this popular anti-aging treatment.

What Is Dysport? 

Dysport is a neuromodulator formulated with a purified form of botulinum toxin A and works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Dysport is known for its natural-looking results and ability to smooth out skin texture.

How Does Dysport Differ from Botox?

Although Dysport and Botox are both derived from botulinum toxin and have similar applications, there are key differences. Dysport tends to spread to a wider area after injection, which can provide a more diffused effect, making it ideal for larger areas that need treatment. The onset of results can also be faster with Dysport, often within 2-3 days as opposed to Botox’s 4-7 days. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dysport Injections? 

Good candidates for Dysport injections are adults who are looking to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without undergoing surgery. It is ideal for individuals who want a non-invasive solution with minimal downtime. During your initial consultation at 5th and Wellness, our specialists will review your medical history to ensure Dysport is a safe option for you.

What Can I Expect During the Dysport Treatment Process? 

The Dysport injection process is quick and minimally invasive. It typically takes about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. During the treatment, a fine needle is used to inject small amounts of Dysport into specific muscles with minimal discomfort. The number of injections you will receive depends on the area being treated and your aesthetic goals. 

Are There Any Side Effects Associated with Dysport? 

Common side effects include slight pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. Although a less common occurrence, some patients experience a mild headache. Rare side effects can include issues such as eyelid drooping or muscle weakness near the treated area. The providers at 5th and Wellness are highly experienced injectors who ensure the highest safety standards are followed to minimize any risks. 

How Long Do the Results of Dysport Last? 

The effects of Dysport are temporary, typically lasting between 3 to 5 months, depending on the individual’s metabolism, the area treated, and the amount used. Periodic maintenance treatments will sustain the results. 

Can Dysport Be Combined with Other Cosmetic Treatments?

Yes, Dysport injections can be safely combined with other cosmetic treatments to enhance overall facial rejuvenation. Commonly, Dysport is paired with dermal fillers to address both dynamic wrinkles (those caused by muscle movement) and static wrinkles (those present without muscle movement), providing a comprehensive anti-aging solution.
