Dysport at MaVie
What is Dysport?
Dysport or AbobotulinumtoxinA is a dermal injectable known as a neurotoxin/neuromodulator that’s derived from Clostridium botulinum. Like Botox, the purpose of Dysport is to help smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When injected into the skin, Dysport temporarily paralyzes the nerves that cause muscle contraction as this is the primary cause of wrinkle formation. The injectable stops the transmission of the neural signals that trigger muscle contractions. By doing so, it prevents the skin from weakening and ensures that the skin remains smooth and taught.
Dysport vs Botox
Both Dysport and Botox are derived from Clostridium botulinum. They are both neurotoxin injectables that are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport is primarily used to treat severe glabellar lines but is not limited to this area Overall, Botox and Dysport provide similar results. However, the differences between the two of them lie in their potency & patient preference.
While most are familiar with the term Botox and speak in terms of getting their “Botox done”, often patients prefer Dysport as their neurotoxin/neuromodulator of choice. Many feel it provides a more natural looking result and is great for those trying to prevent worsening of static wrinkles. Dysport has been proven to deliver a faster onset of action and in some, longer lasting results.

MaVie Med Spa
The procedure starts with a consultation. Your satisfaction, comfort, and safety is the number one priority to our medical providers at MaVie Med Spa. It is for this reason that we take extra time with you to discuss your goals and what options you have when it comes to receiving neurotoxin/neuromodulator injections like Dysport.
After cleansing the sites to be treated, our medical staff will carefully map out the sites to be injected based on the results you are trying to achieve. Dysport is then injected into the identified sections of the face in minute quantities.
What to Expect After
Your Dysport Injections
After the procedure, you are asked to avoid lying flat for a few hours and avoiding any compression to the treated area (headbands, hats, massages, etc). Ensure appropriate infection precautions by temporarily avoiding excessive sweating and touching your face. It is recommended to avoid alcohol for 24 hours and any blood thinning agents such as Aspirin or Ibuprofen prior to and immediately after your injections.
Typical onset of neurotoxins like Dysport is 4-7 days, with the full onset being at about two weeks. You will be seen again at the two week mark to receive any touch up needed and to evaluate the effects of the prescribed dosing. At MaVie, we understand every face is different. Because of this, it is important to come to your two week follow-up so we can document outcomes of injections performed. Once we identify dosing of optimal results, we can maintain these results every 3-4 months.
