While you cannot make Dysport® last longer, it is entirely possible to retain its effect with regular maintenance. However, for optimal results, we recommend that the treatment is conducted by a qualified professional, as results from any aesthetic procedure are largely dependent on the skill and techniques of the provider.
Along with regular maintenance, the effects of Dysport® can be further enhanced by making positive lifestyle choices, a good diet and exercise, and an effective skincare regime. So, whether you’re considering taking the next step on your skincare journey or just curious about its wrinkle-reducing qualities, we’re here to highlight how to get the best from your Dysport® treatment.
Enhancing and Extending the Effects of Dysport®
Dysport® is a great treatment to slow down and help reverse the signs of aging, although its effect does wear off as the product is naturally degraded by the body. However, the following recommendations could help to make Dysport® last longer between appointments and improve the overall appearance of your complexion:
- Use a barrier cream to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Studies show that using sunscreen every day helps slow down the skin’s aging process. (Mayo Clinic)
- Staying hydrated is important to keep your skin glowing and maintain its elasticity.
- Enhance the effects of aesthetics with topical skincare treatments such as hyaluronic acid serums and creams, retinol, and products containing vitamin C. (Harvard Health Publishing) However, do keep in mind that it is a good idea to discuss potential skincare products with a dermatologist to ensure they are suitable for you beforehand.
- Studies show certain vitamins may play a part in extending the effects of treatments, particularly with a diet rich in zinc or via tablet supplements. (Journal of Drugs in Dermatology) Again, however, do check with your healthcare provider for advice.
- Stress causes changes to the proteins of your skin, reducing elasticity. Therefore, it is beneficial to engage in stress-busting activities such as meditation, exercise, and avoiding unhealthy habits to slow down the signs of aging.
- Lifestyle choices such as poor diet, a lack of exercise, smoking, or drinking too much alcohol impacts skin aging. To enhance the effects of Dysport® and improve your overall health in general, we recommend adopting healthy lifestyle activities.
- If you have Dysport®, following best practices for aftercare is essential to achieve optimal results and minimize the risk of bruising. Our team provides comprehensive aftercare to ensure you get the most from our treatments.
- Have regular maintenance sessions. Typically, the effects of Dysport® can last for up to three or four months. Over time, your facial muscles may begin to train themselves to contract less, extending the period between each treatment. However, other factors such as the brand and number of units used in a session can also affect the duration.

What Are the Benefits of Dysport®?
People can have Dysport® treatments for various reasons, from temporary smoothing of facial wrinkles to treatments for health concerns such as:
- Severe underarm sweating
- Chronic migraine
- Overactive bladder
- Strabismus (lazy eye)
- Severe muscles spasms
Dysport® works by relaxing the muscles being treated by blocking signals to the nerves in the muscles. The injections usually begin working one to three days after the treatment and, depending on the problem being treated, can last for up to three or four months between sessions. Benefits include:
- Enhancing natural beauty and minimizing signs of aging
- Improving many health conditions such as neck spasms
- A non-invasive and cost-effective procedure when compared to surgical procedures
- Natural-looking results
- Quick sessions with lasting results
- Minimal downtime or recovery required
Is Dysport® Suitable for Everyone?
With very few side effects, Dysport® is approved for patients who are over 18. While the treatment is considered safe overall, we recommend researching beforehand to find a professionally trained and licensed aesthetics practitioner to reduce risk and achieve the results you want safely.
