Dysport Before & After
How Does Dysport® Work?
The effectiveness of this treatment is based on its ability to deactivate the nerves that control facial expressions. It involves a very precise injection into the facial muscles so that only the muscles and nerves that are contributing to wrinkles are affected. Much like the more well-known Botox®, its active ingredient is botulinum type A, a molecule which is responsible for temporarily blocking facial nerve signals. When these nerves are deactivated, the facial wrinkles will begin to relax. This creates a smoother appearance on the surface of the skin without any surgery or downtime.
What Are The Benefits of Dysport®?
No More Frozen Face
What sets Dysport® apart from other wrinkle reducers is its ability to improve the appearance of wrinkles without reducing the facial muscles’ ability to create natural expressions. The frozen, robot-like face that’s become associated with other injectable wrinkle treatments is a thing of the past.
Natural-looking Results for Eye and Forehead Wrinkles
Since Dysport® doesn’t freeze surrounding facial muscles completely, the results tend to be more natural looking. Dysport® is specifically designed to help with wrinkles on the upper half of the face. This is because wrinkles in this area tend to spread out farther, and Dysport® is known to spread throughout the designated areas and work quickly. While it can be used on other parts of the face, the most natural-looking improvements will be on crow’s feet and frown lines.
The results from Dysport® can last up to four months. How long the results from your treatment will last depend on a number of factors, such as the severity of your wrinkles and the specific techniques utilized by your doctor.
Quick and Easy
You live a busy life and don’t have the ability to take time off for a procedure that requires weeks of recovery. Thankfully, a Dysport® treatment only requires a 20-minute office visit. If you are getting other exciting anti-aging treatments, you may be able to have Dysport® injected during the same visit. This treatment option can be discussed during your consultation. While pain is always subjective, many patients have reported that Dysport® created minimal discomfort.
