The Mainline Institute of Plastic Surgery also carries Dysport ™. It is another neuromodulator with similar results as Botox.
Get to know Dysport
Prescription Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

How long before Botox/Dysport results can be seen?
Answer: Botox and Dysport are both neuromuscular modulators. They cause blockage of the muscle receptors and weaken the strength of the muscles responsible for facial animation. The goal is to minimize muscle contractions and, therefore, decrease wrinkling during expression. Botox and Dysport can be used interchangeably. The main difference between the two is that Botox has a longer onset of action; it takes about 1 week to see results. Dysport usually takes about 3-4 days before results are able to be seen. Botox typically lasts about 3 months, but if used when animation begins to return, it can have a synergistic effect and last 3-6 months. Dysport usually lasts a little over 3 months and the same synergistic effect can be seen.
