Dysport: Get Wedding-Season Ready

In addition to making sure that the venue, food, music, and flowers are picture-perfect, brides also want look and feel their best on their wedding day.

For many, this not only means carefully planning their hair and makeup, but also taking steps to beautify their skin with non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Of these, Dysport injections are one of the most popular ways brides can eliminate wrinkles and achieve smooth and radiant skin.

So, how can Dysport help you get wedding-season ready?

Continue reading to learn all about this neurotoxin treatment.

What is Dysport?

Like Botox, Dysport is an FDA-approved neurotoxin treatment designed to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

Composed of onabotulinumtoxinA, Dysport is injected into targeted facial muscles in order to temporarily deactivate them. As a result, wrinkles relax and skin becomes smoother and more youthful-looking.

How Can Dysport Help You Get Wedding-Season Ready?

Wedding planning can be both a stressful and exciting process. Dysport is an easy, quick, and non-surgical treatment that will help brides look refreshed and radiant when they say I do.

The procedure takes just 20 minutes and can be completed in the comfort of your dermatologist’s office, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

While Botox has become synonymous with neurotoxins, Dysport works exactly the same way and can offer brides several benefits that Botox cannot. To start, Dysport has greater diffusion, making it an ideal product for larger areas of concern.

Some injectors and patients also find that Dysport takes effect more quickly than Botox. In fact, patients can see visible relaxation of wrinkles 2-3 days after Dysport infections, compared to 3-5 days after Botox injections.

What’s more, Dysport tends to last longer than Botox and often costs less per treatment.

When to Get Dysport Before the Big Day?

It’s recommended that those new to neurotoxins, schedule their first Dysport session at least 4 to 6 months ahead of their wedding. Doing so, will allow time to test out treatment effects and figure out dosing.

Brides should then repeat Dysport injections 1 month before their wedding day, in case any touch-ups are needed.

It’s also important to note that Dysport injections should be performed by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with extensive experience. These specialists have in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy to provide natural-looking results and effectively manage any complications should they arise.
