What is Dysport?

Dysport, like Botox, is a neuromodulator that prevents a muscle from contracting. Wrinkles are created as a result of muscle contraction. However, now that the muscle is flaccid and so, wrinkle formation is prevented.

Although they are the same type of drug, however, Dysport is chemically different.

First, Dysport is best due to this small molecule causing enjoyable results. Specifically, results are seen sooner.

Second, Dysport spreads more evenly than Botox, thus, creating a natural look that lasts longer.

Therefore, Dysport is best due to better spread and most importantly, longer lifespan.

Is it true Dysport is a toxin?

Although both are called neurotoxins this term is not accurate. Botox and Dysport are nontoxic to nerves, therefore safe and effective.

Moreover, these medications work by blocking a nerve from firing thus, prevent a muscle attached to that nerve from contracting. A muscle contraction created the skin folds that Dysport and Botox correct.

How painful are the injections ?

The use of ultra-fine needles makes the injections painless.  In fact, numbing creams are not necessary.

What can i expect during my treatment?

First, Dr. Messina will address all areas that bother you. Then, alcohol will sterilize the region. Then, mark the areas of concern with an eyeliner pen.  Furthermore, the marking of these areas allows for a more accurate injection, thus, creating a consistent, beautiful result.

Therefore, injecting the marked areas ensures a consistent, beautiful result.

Second, ultra-fine needles will make injections pain-free.

Finally, after the injections, a small raised area can be seen. However, they resolve quickly.

Dysport vs Botox

There are several key differences between Dysport and other neuromodulators. Mainly, ABO-Botulinum Toxin, the heart of Dysport. This molecule is smaller than that found in Botox.

This smaller molecule allows for:

  • A rapid onset
  • More even spread
  • Natural looking results
  • Longer duration 

hyperhidrosis (excessive armpit sweating)

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive armpit sweating. Although benign, hyperhidrosis causes emotional stress and embarrassment—patients with hyperhidrosis sweat through their clothing, including jackets. There are several treatment options for this condition, one being Dysport injections.

 The axilla is cleaned and mapped before injection of Dysport.  Patients notice a marked reduction of perspiration within two weeks, and Dysport reduces sweat production by 80-100%  and lasts almost a year.

Will I Be Frozen?

First, if you want to be frozen it’s a matter of dosage.  A high dose results in less motion.

Second, increased motion is obtained by lowering the dose.

Specifically, how much motion or lack of motion you obtain is entirely your choice.

 Dysport injections only the muscles targeted will not move, and muscles distant to the injection site will function in their normal fashion. therefore, injections above the eye will not affect your lower face.

That means your face is not frozen, you can smile, speak and show full expression of your mid to lower face.

Specifically,  Dysport injected into the forehead and sides of the eyes will not have any effect on your smile.

Therefore, Dysport Injections are tailor-made for Long Island. Dr. Messina carefully marks the regions before administering your Dysport.

Thus, marking the areas of concern gives beautiful results just where you need them.

Therefore, if your want motion in an area Dr. Messina will adjust the number of units accordingly. If you want to be frozen that can be accomplished as well.
