What to Do When Dysport Doesn't Work

If you still have the full ability to frown, then it's likely that the Dysport didn't work. It could be due to improper placement on the muscle, not using enough of it, or even immunity. Some people may need more than others, but true immunity is very rare. The best thing to do is to contact your provider.A reliable injector should want to know if you're not satisfied with the treatment and should work with you to make sure you're happy with the results.

If you're hesitant about going back to the same provider, get a second opinion or switch to an MD injector before investing in more BOTOX. Make sure to keep a record of your previous treatments for your new provider, including when you last received BOTOX, where the shots were given, and how much was used. This information will help them create a safe and effective treatment plan.A provider with experience in both can help you decide if Dysport is a better alternative to BOTOX for you. Dysport is manufactured by Galderma, which also produces Restylane products (Restylane, Lyft, Silk, Refyne, Defyne, Kysse and Sculptra), and Xeomin is manufactured by Merz, which manufactures Belotero and Radiesse.

Dysport is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles on the forehead for fast-acting, natural-looking results and a firmer, brighter face.Sometimes people worry that it's because they used “the other one” (Dysport or Xeomin) or because it was “diluted” or “maybe it was old”. We hope this article has provided you with more education related to Botox and Dysport neuromodulators so that you can make an informed decision. Just like some people prefer Advil for headaches and others rely on Motrin, some patients may respond better to Dysport than BOTOX (and vice versa), even though the two products are very similar.The correct dosage of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin is part science and part artistry and varies depending on each individual's needs and situation. The risk of this happening is much higher in salons and other non-medical or quasi-medical centers since only licensed physicians can get authentic BOTOX or Dysport.

As for the concern that Dysport or Xeomin are “generic Botox” or don't work as well - that's simply not true.
