Dysport Columbus Ohio
When we think of aging, the first thing that comes to mind is often those unwelcome lines and wrinkles. Forehead lines and frown lines are first seen as early as your 20’s, progressing into severe wrinkles when left untreated! If the mirror has been reminding you of your age, look no further.
Dysport injections at Lotus Elite Aesthetics are an effective treatment for preventing future wrinkles and softening existing ones. In a single treatment, you can achieve and preserve your treasured youth.
What is Dysport
Dysport is an injectable botulinum toxin product and muscle relaxer, like Botox. By providing temporary paralysis to overactive muscles, the overlying skin is no longer able to fold and create creases and wrinkles. This gives you the freedom of facial expressions, without the risk of paying the price of premature aging.
During treatment, Dysport is injected directly into the areas of facial wrinkles, relaxing the muscle contractions while still allowing you to maintain natural expression and movement in the face. Much like Botox, Dysport can be used virtually anywhere on the face where dynamic wrinkles are present; however, the formulation is especially effective at treating larger surfaces of area, such as in the forehead and glabellar lines.

Dysport vs Botox
The most common injectable treatments used today are Dysport and Botox, both serving the same purpose of softening facial wrinkles. These are both products made of botulinum toxin type A; however, the difference lies in the formulation.
Dysport is best suited for larger areas of the face such as the glabellar lines and forehead lines, due to the ability to spread over a larger surface area. Botox is suited for targeting smaller areas such as crow’s feet and performing eyebrow lifts. Although these two treatments have their forte in different facial areas, they can be used interchangeably.
Many patients have reported a quicker onset of effect with Dysport; however, both Dysport and Botox injections last 3-4 months and provide similar results.
When will I see results?
Results will typically be seen 3-4 days after injection, with the maximum effect taking place at two weeks. The muscle weakness and relaxing effect will typically remain for 4 months, slowly wearing off as time passes.
We recommend receiving regular injections every few months to maintain the smoothing effect, and to prevent future wrinkles from forming.
Am I a good candidate?
Dysport injections are safe for all skin types and skin tones. If you are seeing facial lines as you raise your brows, smile, or make other expressions, you are a great candidate! This treatment can be used on those with existing dynamic lines, as well as those who don’t see lines yet, but wish to prevent them from forming.
You may not be a good candidate for Dysport if you:
- Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have had an allergic reaction to Botox, Dysport, or other neurotoxins in the past
- Have deep, stagnant lines
- Have excess skin laxity (sagging)
- Don’t have realistic expectations
Some common side effects such as tenderness and swelling may occur after Dysport treatments. Adverse reactions are rare, and any redness, swelling, bruising, itching, tenderness, and headache should subside within 24 hours, and it is advised to refrain from exercise directly after. You may resume normal activities after this period.
Notify your injector of your medical history or use of prescription medicines such as blood thinners prior to treatment to minimize any chance of adverse effects. Those who have had a previous allergic reaction to another form of botulinum toxin or botulinum treatments are not suited for this treatment.
