Over the past decade, Dysport has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Still, there are many myths that exist about Dysport and its effectiveness that may be preventing you from experiencing the many benefits of the treatment. Below are some of the most common Dysport myths set straight so you can understand how the treatment really works.
- Dysport is a poison: Because the drug Dysport is derived from the botulism toxin, it is often questioned for its safety. The effect that Dysport has in cosmetic use is the relaxation of non-essential facial muscles. When administered by a qualified physician, there is little chance of severe side effects. Additionally, Dysport is approved by the FDA for several uses, including the treatment of wrinkles.
- Patients look emotionless after Dysport: The location of Dysport injections is highly critical to the effectiveness of the treatment. Placed correctly, the injections only relax those muscles that cause you to frown. Therefore, your face will actually appear more vibrant and approachable after you get Dysport.
- Stopping Dysport use is dangerous: Dysport is a temporary treatment that lasts anywhere from three months to four months depending on the patient. You will need to have repeated treatments to maintain your results, but there is no damage that can occur if you stop using Dysport; your skin will simply return to normal.
- There is a certain age when Dysport treatment should begin: The aging process is different for all people, and some will develop wrinkles earlier than others. You can start using Dysport whenever you need it in life, whether you are in your thirties or in your sixties.
