Frown lines happen to the best of us, but you don’t have to live life feeling self-conscious about how you look.
Dysport, a noninvasive prescription injection, can be used to temporarily smooth wrinkles without a lengthy recovery period.
Dysport is typically used to correct the appearance of moderate to severe lines that form between the eyebrows, called glabella wrinkles. Dysport can also be used to improve the appearance of lines on the forehead and neck.
Like Botox, Dysport works by preventing muscle contractions that cause wrinkles to form. Many patients enjoy Dysport because it offers natural-looking results by gently smoothing lines, and results can last for several months.
Planning For Your First Dysport Injection
When you come to a consultation at New Life Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will examine you and determine if you are a good candidate for Dysport. We will discuss how the procedure works and you will be able to talk about a specific plan for your specific wants and desires.
Dysport treatments are done in our office. Most patients feel fine going home or back to work immediately after the procedure, but you should avoid exercising and undergoing facial treatments for about 24 hours to give the treatment time to settle. The entire process is relatively painless and takes just a few minutes to complete!
Temporary side effects are very unlikely, they include pain, swelling, rash, and headaches. These side effects usually clear up within 1-2 days.
Dysport Results: What to Expect
Patients typically notice visible results 2-3 days after their Dysport treatment, which is faster than Botox. It can take up to 10 days to see the full effect of your Dysport treatment.
Within just a few days, you can expect facial wrinkles and lines to diminish or even disappear, leaving you with a more rested and youthful appearance.
Regarding upkeep, the results of one Dysport treatment can last up to five months. Dysport studies show that 95% of patients were happy with two Dysport treatments per year.
As with any skin treatment, you should continue using daily SPF and any products recommended by your doctor to maintain your skin’s health and elasticity.
Is Dysport Right For You?
Dysport like Botox can be used used for prevention and treatment of wrinkle in the face, platysma bands in the neck and for TMJ in the jaw. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, neck bands, or TMJ pain. The treatment effect usually lasts for 3-4 months.
People with certain skin conditions, a history of botulinum toxin sensitivity, a milk allergy or who are pregnant are usually not candidates for Dysport.
