The appearance of facial lines and creases are often amplified by overactive muscles. Dysport® is an injectable treatment designed to reduce these facial wrinkles. This popular injectable is made with a neurotoxin, similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, that can temporarily weaken overactive facial muscles, giving patients a more relaxed, well-rested, and youthful look. Men and women may choose to combine Dysport® with a dermal filler to maximize the impact of their facial rejuvenation.
Benefits of Dysport®
The active ingredient in Dysport® is made for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. Unlike static wrinkles (which typically result from factors such as sun exposure, tobacco products, or the natural aging process), dynamic wrinkles are typically the result of repetitive, chronic muscle contraction. Dynamic wrinkles often appear at areas of the face that move with facial expressions, such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. By targeting the muscle groups in these areas that are prone to overactive contraction, our staff at Dermlounge can help relax the face and smooth the skin.
Although Dysport® may be available from any certified provider, an experienced skin care specialist can achieve results that look both youthful and natural. Researching the credentials of your provider may help ensure you are satisfied with your Dysport® results. Our staff has an advanced knowledge of facial aesthetics, and they will carefully discuss your cosmetic goals during the initial consultation. During this time, patients may review before and after photos to find examples of the types of results they would like to achieve. Afterward, a customized treatment plan will be designed to help meet their expectations.
Candidates for Dysport®
Most candidates for Dysport® seek to minimize the effects of facial aging from dynamic wrinkles. Dysport® is typically used to treat areas of the face prone to overactive muscle contraction, including the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. The appearance of forehead creases, vertical lines between the brows, and crow’s feet can all be diminished with Dysport®. The injectable is a popular solution for facial aging among women and men at any age when lines and wrinkles begin to develop.
The Dysport® Procedure
You can schedule a treatment with Dysport® either in person at our office or over the phone. At the beginning of your appointment, a member of our staff will review your cosmetic goals, perform an exam of the face, and confirm that Dysport® is the best facial rejuvenation option for you. Each treatment is customized depending upon the patient’s unique needs and expectations. The amount of product will vary based upon the number, location, and depth of the winkles. The needle used to inject Dysport® is very thin, and most patients experience little to no discomfort. In most cases, the entire procedure can be completed within 30 minutes.
Dysport® Recovery and Results
Some patients experience redness or tenderness at the injection site, though these side effects usually begin to dissipate within a few hours. Less frequently, patients may notice mild bruising at the injection site that may take 3-7 days to resolve. Most patients return to work or their normal daily activities immediately after their Dysport® appointment.
The active ingredient in Dysport® will gradually cause the targeted facial muscles to relax over the first few days. The final results of the procedure may not be evident for a week. For most patients, the results of Dysport® last 3-4 months. This improvement can be easily maintained with touch-up treatments.
