Over time, the small adjustments of your facial muscles can lead to long-term changes in your appearance, including frown lines, crow's feet, wrinkles, and worry lines. These lines in the face get etched into the forehead, near the eyes, and in the space between your eyebrows. Fortunately, these unattractive developments can be reduced or erased with Dysport®, an FDA-approved non-surgical dermal filler.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a revolutionary new treatment that works similarly to Botox® by relaxing facial muscles to smooth out the skin, greatly reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face.
Used on its own, Dysport® can minimize or erase the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the upper part of the face. Even greater results in contouring and volume can be achieved when Dysport® is used in combination with a dermal filler. During your treatment, Dysport® will be injected into the underlying facial muscles to relax them and immobilize them, preventing the muscles from contracting to achieve a smoother and rejuvenated appearance.
Dysport® vs. Botox®
Although similar, there are some key differences between Botox® and Dysport®. Botox® is a more powerful numbing agent, and most patients receive just a single dose of Botox® to achieve the same appearance-enhancing effects that would require three doses of Dysport®. The principle advantage of choosing Dysport® is that it produces results more quickly than Botox®. Dysport® treatments usually can be seen within 24 hours while Botox® generally requires between five to seven days to begin taking effect. Another benefit of Dysport® is that each injection affects a wider area, an important aspect that we take into consideration during the administration of treatments.
Overall, Dysport® and Botox® are approximately equal in terms of value and price.
Why Choose Dysport®?
Although there are a number of benefits to choosing Dysport®, the main factor motivating the popularity of Dysport® is its ability to achieve stunning transformations in a person's appearance. Dysport® treatments result in a youthful, refreshed appearance without the risks and expense of surgery. Dysport® can be used to treat every manner of line and wrinkle in the face, including issues with worry lines on the forehead, crow's feet, frown lines, and lip and neck wrinkles. Most patients begin to see excellent results within a day of receiving a Dysport® treatment, and side effects and discomfort are very rare.
Dysport® was first authorized by the FDA in 1991 for use in treating muscle spasms and has since become one of the most popular treatment methods available. Hundreds of thousands of doctors in 75 countries around the world rely on Dysport® to relax muscles and improve a person's appearance.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we will evaluate your overall health and cosmetic conditions. If you qualify as an individual who would benefit from a Dysport® treatment, we can begin work immediately. First, one of our board-certified doctors will analyze your face's exact requirements and then a carefully titrated dose of Dysport® will be injected via a syringe into the targeted area. Most Dysport® treatments take less than 15 minutes to administer, and the majority of our patients report little or no discomfort during the procedure. Furthermore, Dysport® is well-renowned for causing very few side effects or complications. Although the occasional case of temporary bruising does sometimes occur, it usually resolves itself within three days or less. Other patients have, in rare cases, experienced headaches or localized inflammation following a Dysport® treatment.
Are You a Candidate for Dysport®?
If you see fine lines or wrinkles on the upper part of your nose or around your eyes and forehead, you may be eligible to benefit from Dysport®. Dysport® works best on individuals in generally good health who have realistic expectations about what Dysport® can accomplish. Individuals allergic to abobotulinumtoxin are recommended to avoid Dysport®.
What Can I Expect After the Dysport® Procedure?
Dysport® treatments usually take 15 minutes or less. Following the procedure, results will become visible over the course of the next 24 hours. Any discomfort experienced following the procedure should subside very quickly.
How Soon Can I Return to Work After Dysport®?
There is no recovery time required for Dysport® treatments, but we do recommend waiting for 24 hours before exercising or participating in vigorous physical activities.
