Creases and wrinkles are often caused by hyperactive facial muscles. Dysport is actually a very tiny amount of botulism that is placed into the wrinkled areas of the face to relax the muscles causing the skin to flatten and smooth out. It temporarily improves the look of severe to moderate frown lines without changing the look of the whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions. Dysport has very similar results as Botox. We offer both Dysport and Botox.
How is Dysport administered?
The areas to be treated are anesthetized with a topical anesthesia or ice. Dysport is then injected using a small needle. The effects will be seen in about 5 days and usually lasts between three and four months. The injections can be repeated when needed but there does need to be three months between treatments. There may be a little redness in the injection site but this disappears within a day or two.
Where is Dysport used?
Dysport is most commonly used for the frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases. Neck bands also can be flattened dramatically. The vast majority of our Dysport patients love this “quick fix” and return for another Dysport treatment as soon as the wrinkles begin to reappear.
