Dysport is a particularly effective and potent weapon in the anti-aging arsenal, known for beautifully smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines to reveal a more youthful, radiant complexion. At Total Glow, we tailor your injectables to your unique anatomy, so you receive results that reflect your individuality and vitality.
Like BOTOX, Dysport is a medical form of botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that works to paralyze the tiny facial muscles responsible for creating wrinkles. Once the muscles are temporarily blocked, the skin relaxes and a youthful countenance is restored. Dysport has helped millions of clients to recapture their zest for life and like what they see in the mirror once more.
Dysport is slightly more diluted than BOTOX, using smaller molecules that are less likely to be broken down by the body. Dysport can be more effective in treating larger areas than BOTOX, as it spreads quickly and easily.
Dysport makes an excellent alternative to BOTOX, and works wonders for those suffering from facial lines, wrinkles, creases and folds.
If you are pregnant or nursing, however, our aestheticians may suggest a different approach. All clients should be in good health, both physically and emotionally, and they should have realistic expectations for what Dysport can accomplish, based on a private consultation at our Palo Alto offices.
There is really no downtime to speak of with Dysport. Your skin may appear red or raised at the injection site, but this will last a matter of minutes, not even hours. Don’t lie down or exercise for at least 4 hours after your session, but you can return to your normal routine such as work or school with no problems.
Your results from Dysport injections will appear within 48 hours of treatment. Over the next two weeks, your results will continue to improve. This means that Dysport is faster-acting than BOTOX, which takes three days to produce a noticeable improvement, and three weeks to achieve optimal results. Your results will last approximately four to six months, notably more enduring than BOTOX’s three-to-four-month longevity.
One of the lesser-known strategies for optimizing your neuromodulator results involves exercising the target muscles soon after treatment.
This simple measure helps direct the solution where it’s needed most, helping your results develop faster and look better. If you are seeking to lift your brow with Dysport, you will want to raise your eyebrows 40 times, rest for 10 minutes, and then repeat for a total of three sets. If you are undergoing Dysport injections to treat deep forehead wrinkles, you will scowl as hard as you can 40 times, rest 10 minutes, and repeat for a total of three sets.
Dysport costs around $10 per unit, and you will need about 40-50 units per treatment area. We will create a customized quote for you when you undergo your Palo Alto consultation, so you can leave with full knowledge of your financial obligations, as well as options for financing, should you require them

Other side effects may include headache, muscle stiffness, flu symptoms, and other mild side effects. Rare but serious side effects include muscle weakness throughout the body, changes in vision, trouble speaking, loss of bladder control, and trouble speaking or breathing.
