What Should I Avoid After Dysport Injections?

By | Dysport, Injectables
Neuromodulator injections, such as Dysport, are non-surgical injections that do not require recovery. However, for a couple of days after your injections, you may need to slightly modify your routine to promote the best results and treat or prevent side effects. Let’s look at the question, “What should I avoid after Dysport injections?” First off, for the first 24 hours after your Dysport injections, your master injector will recommend avoiding exercising or anything that will get the skin too hot or that may cause sweating. It is also best that if you can avoid blood thinning medications and supplements, including over-the-counter ones such as Ibuprofen, this can help reduce and prevent swelling and bruising. Secondly, while you can return to work and daily activities, try to avoid bending your head forward. This can cause the Dysport to spread as well as increased blood flow which can lead to bruising and swelling. This is generally only for about four to six hours following injections. Finally, avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours as–similar to blood thinners–can increase bruising and swelling. Additionally, it is just generally not good for the healing process.

Patients often want to know the difference between Dysport and BOTOX. It can be confusing considering they are used to provide the same effects. In short, Dysport and BOTOX are both neurotoxins that use Botulinum toxin A to temporarily paralyze and weaken muscles. The main differences between the two are in minute formula differences and how patients respond to each. One of the most frequently asked questions is, “Does Dysport last longer than BOTOX?” The answer is not straightforward. Some patients may see longer lasting results with Dysport while others may experience longer lasting results with BOTOX. Many believe and preliminary studies have shown that the effects of Dysport may appear sooner, but BOTOX may last longer. However, this will not hold true for every individual patient.  Additionally, it is possible to build a tolerance to one or the other if you undergo regular injections. Therefore, the product that gives you the longest result may actually change in the future. It is best to discuss this with your injector during your consultation and treatment to determine whether Dysport or BOTOX is best for you.
