Dysport Results

Dysport usually starts to work in one to two days, and it usually reaches its full effect in about 10 days.  The median number of patients treated see results by day three. In other words, half of the patients treated with Dysport see wrinkle- soothing results before day three and half see results afterwards.  We usually follow up with all of our Dysport patients in 2 weeks.  So, I would recommend to contact your doctor in the next few days for a follow up.

Dysport - How long before seeing results.

Every patient will react differently to Dysport injections. Firstly, the dosage needs to be correct and needs to be injected properly by a certified plastic surgeon. The results will typically be seen after 2 - 3 days. Some pf my patients dont see any difference until the 2 week mark! This is normal. I would wait two full weeks post treatment and if you still do not see any results you may require more units. Consult with your certified plastic surgeon and inquire on how many units you received - touch ups may be necessary. Regards,

Results of Dysport

Dysport is an injection containing Botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.  You can see improvement within several days after injection. However, it can take 10-14 days to see full results. Dysport typically lasts 3-4 months. I would give it more time for the Dysport to work.

How long to see Dysport effects

You may start to see the effects of disport even after the first day. However, it takes upwards of 10 days to two weeks to see the full effect.

Dysport results should be visible in 2 to 3 days

During the clinical trials we performed for the FDA, one advantage Dysport showed compared to Botox was its earlier onset of action.  Whereas Botox takes 5-7 days before the effects are seen, Dysport is more like 2-3 days.

If you are not seeing the effects at 7 days, the following reasons could apply:

1. The product was expired, or sat too long on the shelf, and lost it's effectiveness

2. The product wasn't really Dysport at all, but some other chemical, ranging from saline to "black market" neurotoxins

3. You're injector didn't put it in the right places for you to see any effects.

The right product in the right place should produce results in 2-3 days.

Some may see results later...

Most patients will see results two to three days after treatment, though some may see results later. I would recommend waiting a full two weeks before scheduling a follow up appointment with your doctor to ensure this injectable if working for you.

Dysport Results

Most patients see improvement within several days of injection with Dysport. However it can take anywhere up to 10-14 days to notice full results. The result will usually last about three to four months at which point the muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear.

Dysport time of onset

Dysport, like it's relative Botox, can take up to 14 days for full onset though most people begin to notice some effect around 3-5 days.  I would give the dysport more time to work and then visit your surgeon and ask them for a touch up if needed.

It may take up to two weeks to see the full results of Dysport or Botox.  If you have not seen any change in 2 weeks, I recommend that you see your provider for follow-up.
