Dysport and Laser Combination

Dysport injections are not a problem at all in between your laser treatments. You would be sure and follow the same post injection instructions as usual.

Combining Dysport treatment with laser treatment

Dysport can be injected in between laser treatments as long as your skin is not irritated at the time of Dysport injection. It is generally wise not to inject anything through skin that is healing from an ablative procedure. Once the skin is healed and intact, Dysport treatment should be perfectly safe.

Dysport/Botox and Lasers

No problem.  You can safely have the Dysport or Botox in between sessions of laser treatments.  Follow the usual post injection protocol. the laser itself should not effect theBotox/Dysport.

Dysport or Botox can be injected between laser treatment

There is no reason why Dysport or Botox cannot be injected between nonablative or even ablative laser resurfacing as long as the botulinum toxin is injected 2 days prior to laser treatment. The key is to avoid massage the areas of botulinum toxin injection to minimize migration of the medication away from the area of injection. For example, most common reason for droopy eyelids after Botox or Dysport injection on glabella (area between eyebrows) is due to excessive massage by injector of the patient within 6-8 hours of injection leading to migration of botulinum toxin to upper eyelids.
