Dysport is a prescription injection derived from the same ingredients as Xeomin and Botox — abobotulinumtoxinA. Interestingly, its main indications are the temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines. However, Dysport can address medical needs. Which medical conditions and how?
Dysport For Hyperhidrosis
What is hyperhidrosis? Says The Johns Hopkins University, “hyperhidrosis [is] excessive sweating. It is caused by an overactive sympathetic nerve, and it is a medical condition.” How does Dysport help this condition?
Galderma says that a “dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dose of any other product you may have used.” Still, both Dysport and Botox relax the muscles at the injection site. Ultimately, the product erases the cause of wrinkles at its source! Still, how much Dysport will you need?
Some have taken Galderma’s statement as a direct clarification against Dysport’s competitor Botox. It’s important to note that one unit of Botox is significantly more concentrated than one unit of Dysport. A study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, says that for every 25 units of the toxin, your physician will mix in ‘1 mL of saline . . . However, some physicians also add lidocaine to the solution to reduce the pain of the injection.’ It is noteworthy that the United States’ Food and Drug Administration recommends that you not exceed 360 units in a three-month period of Dysport.
A Prescription for Headaches
Similar to Botox, Dysport too can alleviate tension in the nervous system. Because muscles become sore, they put pressure on blood vessels and nerves. Did you know that this pressure is usually what triggers migraines? The main ingredient in the injection, botulinum, relaxes these tense muscles. As a result, the product is able to reduce the frequency of migraines. Will you need follow-up treatments? Perhaps. But that depends on multiple factors. Namely, your body’s metabolism, your goals, and your physician’s recommendations.
Beauty, Aging, and Wrinkles
Often the result of dynamic muscle movement and, regardless of gender, the signs of aging are all too noticeable. Certainly, making the same facial expressions daily causes wrinkles! For instance, your laugh lines and frown lines. Herein Dysport injections stop movements by the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles.
