What is Dysport?
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a neuromodulator and cosmetic injectable made of botulinum toxin A, the same substance from which Botox is made. While Dysport has many medical uses, it can also be used cosmetically to help freeze muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that appear due to repeated facial movements. By freezing the underlying muscles in areas where dynamic wrinkles appear, the muscle is no longer to contract, thus diminishing the appearance of lines and folds, and preventing existing wrinkles from developing further. Dysport for crow’s feet is just one possible use for this cosmetic injectable—it can also be used safely and effectively to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, the lines between the eyebrows that appear when we frown.
Why Dysport for crow’s feet?
Crow’s feet, also sometimes referred to as smile lines or periorbital wrinkles, can become a real source of insecurity for patients. The lines that appear when people smile or squint are often some of the first signs of ageing to appear on the face. As the eyes are such a focal point in the face, many patients feel that crow’s feet age them prematurely. Patients will benefit from treatment with Dysport for crow’s feet because it helps smooth the appearance of the lines and wrinkles around the eyes and can even help prevent them from developing in the first place if treatment starts early enough. Patients also enjoy Dysport for crow’s feet because results can last up to 6 months, though 3 to 4 months is the average.
Dosage of Dysport for crow’s feet
The exact number of units that should be used when injected Dysport for crow’s feet will vary by patient, with factors such as the patient’s skin condition, anatomy, and desired results all playing a role in the dose. Typically, 20 to 30 units per side will be sufficient to get the required results.
