While they’re both neurotoxins, yes Dysport is different from Botox! The different products use different formulations of the neurotoxin ingredient. Whether we use Dysport, Botox, or other neuromodulators depends on your needs and preferences.

Discover Dysport, a Different Neurotoxin Option
Dysport in Apple Valley, MN
You’ve probably already heard of Botox, considering it’s basically the most popular and well-known aesthetic treatment on the market. But at The Laser Room Med Spa, we’re all about offering our clients the options they need to get exactly the results they want—meaning we’re proud to provide Dysport in Apple Valley, MN as an alternative or supplement to Botox.
How it Works
Dysport is an injectable medication that temporarily “freezes” the muscles responsible for subtle expressions that cause dynamic wrinkles and fine lines.
Dysport is one of several neurotoxin formulas, like Botox. While the brand name might not have the same recognition as Botox, Dysport is one of the most widely used injectable wrinkle treatments!

Preparing for Dysport
Make sure we know of any facial cold sore or herpes break-outs so we can help minimize chances of a possible breakout after treatment.
Try to eat a snack before your appointment to keep from feeling light-headed or faintish during your injection.
Don’t consume aspirin, St. John’s wort, fish oil, vitamin E, or alcohol for 5 days prior to treatment.
Avoid scheduling your treatment within 3 weeks of a big event.
Use the muscle injected frequently (at least once every 10 minutes or 6 times in 1 hour) for one hour following the treatment to help move the neurotoxin into the muscle.
Do not lay flat for 3-4 hours following the treatment.
Avoid positions that require you to keep your head down such as scrubbing floors, etc.
Avoid laying in the sun for long periods of time until the neurotoxin effect is evident.
No straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise 24-48 hours following treatment. Avoid manipulation of the area following the treatment including: rubbing the forehead or other treated area; having a facial done; or getting a massage where you are lying in a prone position (face down).
It is recommended not to fly in an airplane within 5 days of receiving a neurotoxin. Especially very long flights such as overseas.
Neurotoxin changes are a slow process and not immediate. It usually takes 2 weeks to see the final result. For this reason; any touch-up WILL NOT be done prior to the 2-week period following treatment.
Avoid wearing a tight-fitting hat or headband across your forehead (if that area has been treated) for a full 2 weeks.
While the minor differences in the formula can alter the longevity of these neurotoxins, whether Dysport lasts longer than Botox will depend more on the amount used, the treatment area, and your metabolism.
Both Dysport and Botox are extremely safe medications with extensive histories of use. Each has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of certain wrinkles in adults.
