What is Dysport?
Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is a neuromodulator and cosmetic injectable made of botulinum toxin A, the same substance contained in Botox.
While Dysport has many medical uses, it can also be used cosmetically to freeze the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear due to repeated facial movements. The frozen muscles are unable to contract, diminishing the appearance of lines and folds and preventing them 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, which are the lines between the eyebrows that appear when we frown.
Why Dysport for crow’s feet?
Crow’s feet, also sometimes referred to as periorbital wrinkles, are often a source of insecurity for patients. The lines that appear when people smile or squint are often the first visible sign of facial aging, and many patients feel that crow’s feet age them prematurely.
Treating crow’s feet with Dysport smooths their appearance and can even help prevent them from developing if treatment starts early enough. The results typically last for up to 6 months, though 3 to 4 months is the average.
The exact number of units that should be used when injecting Dysport for crow’s feet varies by patient, with factors such as skin condition, anatomy, and desired results all playing a role. Typically, 20 to 30 units per side will suffice.
