The Rise of Dysport
In the modern world, the fight to keep a youthful appearance is ongoing. The popularity of Botox and similar “liquid facelift” products has created a large market with several options to make one look younger. But Dysport, the miracle wrinkle treatment from Ireland, has come onto the market with a vengeance.
With claims that Dysport works faster and lasts longer than other products, it has become widely available since the FDA deemed it safe and effective. Dysport treatments are very similar to the popular Botox alternative, and it has similarly mild and fleeting side effects.
Mild Side Effects That May Occur With Dysport Treatment
Normally, especially when used for cosmetic purposes, any side effects that occur are no more than a mild irritation that lasts only a few hours to a few days. These include:
- Bruising – Light bruising associated with Dysport Injections usually fade in a couple of days.
- Redness – Mild skin irritation, including redness may occur, and should dissipate in a few days.
- Swelling – Muscle swelling not associated with bruising may also occur and fade quickly.
- Pain – Any pain associated with Dysport injections quickly fades in a few hours.
- Infection – A slight risk of a skin infection is present with Dysport, which is easily treatable.
- Respiratory Infections – Dysport users have a slightly increased risk of contracting cold and flu.
- Dizziness – Very few Dysport users complain of mild dizziness that lasts a few hours to a day.
- Muscle Weakness –As Dysport wears off the treated muscles may temporarily weaken slightly.
- Headaches – Dysport carries a slight risk of headaches when used for migraine pain.
- Neck or Back Pain – Minor neck and back discomfort is also associated with migraine treatment.
- Difficulty Swallowing – A mild difficulty swallowing may occur temporarily in very few patients.
- Nausea – Minor nausea and vomiting are possible with Dysport, though very uncommon.
- Fever – Mild fevers may occur intermittently for the first week or so of Dysport treatment.
- Drooping – It is sometimes possible, as Dysport wears off, for drooping to occur around the treated muscles. This is very uncommon and temporary. Most commonly, the side effect of Dysport is a relaxed musculature that softens the recurrence of wrinkles.
Though usually very minor and quick to dissipate, some of the above symptoms may vary in frequency or intensity with certain, high risk patients. But even at the peak of severity, Dysport users normally admit that the benefits of Dysport are worth the discomfort that may occur.
The Slight Possibility of More Serious Side Effects
More serious side effects, such as unintentional spreading and anaphylaxis, are very rare in a professional environment. To avoid the risk, it is very important to get Dysport treatments from a certified specialist with experience that works in a clinical environment.
It is also possible for people to be abnormally sensitive or allergic to the medication in Dysport. For this reason, it is very important to undergo testing and medical history screening with a professional at a good clinic with the proper certification to administer Dysport treatment.
