Dysport

Dysport (Reloxin) is a new wrinkle relaxer that was recently approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles. Similar to Botox, Dysport is purified abobotulinum toxin type-A. It works like Botox by preventing the contraction of muscles that create wrinkles in the overlying skin. Like Botox, Dysport can be used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet.

However, Dysport is not exactly the same as Botox. The subtle differences between the two (such as how long each treatment lasts for, or differences in side effects are different, as seen in the clinical trials. The units between Dysport and Botox are also not comparable since they are different concentrations.

Dysport's possible advantages include:

  • Faster onset of action.
  • Less expensive.
  • Possibly longer duration of effect.

While new to the United States, Dysport has been used in Europe for several years for cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes. Physicians and patients alike are excited by Dysport's approval.

Dysport is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport may be comparable to your first use. With just 1 injection into each of the 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as laughing, in untreated areas.

Note that Dysport is not the same or interchangeable with the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product (ie. Botox Cosmetic). The dose of Dypsport cannot be compared to the dose of any other botulinum toxin product you may have used.
