Dysport® Treatments (Botulinum Toxin)

Dysport treatment at Laser Aesthetics Vascular Therapists
Dysport injections block signals from the nerves to the muscles, which means the muscles can’t contract and keep their shape. This relaxes and softens the fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

For sweating treatment, Dysport injections block the signals to the sweat glands so less sweat is produced.

We treat:

  • excessive sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis).
  • ageing or lined facial skin: forehead lines, crows’ feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines.
  • areas on the face to help prevent wrinkles.
Important information about Dysport® treatment

Dysport® is a Prescription Medicine containing 500 units of Clostridium botulinumtoxin type A toxin haemagglutinin complex for injection.

It is used for the treatment of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet and for the treatment of severe primary hyperhidrosis of the axillae.

Dysport should be administered only by trained medical professionals. Dysport has risks and benefits.

Q&As

Will it hurt?

Most people feel a light prickle.

If you are sensitive to needles we can numb the area using ice packs or anaesthetic cream before treatment.

How does it work?

Dysport injections block signals from the nerves to the muscles, which means the muscles can’t contract and keep their shape. This relaxes and softens the fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

For sweating treatment, the injections block the signals to the sweat glands so less sweat is produced.

How long does it take?

Your first session will typically be for 30 minutes, which includes a consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

Each treatment lasts approximately 16 weeks.

We advise on having three-to-four monthly treatments for the first year, then as required after that.

Results vary between patients.

Are there any side effects?

There may be a little pain, swelling or bruising where the injection was.

Is it safe?

This treatment has been around for over 20 years. The dose used for cosmetic treatments is very small.

We only treat the face or armpits, where the ingredients stay, eventually being broken down by the body.
