What is Dysport?
Subtle and effective facial rejuvenation of wrinkles and fine lines along the face can be achieved with Dysport®, the newest alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dysport® is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and offers many of the same benefits as BOTOX® injections, such as smoothing out signs of age in the face and giving you a more youthful, refreshed appearance. The procedure can be performed in less than 30 minutes and the effects of Dysport® are seen within a few days.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport® procedures have been performed in Europe for many years and are now gaining popularity in the United States as an effective alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Derived from Clostridium botulinum, Dysport® works to temporarily prevent facial muscles from contracting. This ultimately smoothes out wrinkles in the face and can give you a more youthful aesthetic. Although Dysport® can be used in a variety of facial areas, it has proven particularly effective in the forehead region and between the eyes.
The Dysport® procedure involves injections of the solution, with an ultra-fine needle, into the facial areas targeted for rejuvenation. Depending on the number of treatment areas, the procedure should last about 30 minutes or less.
There is usually no downtime associated with Dysport®. Patients may experience some temporary bruising, swelling, and/or redness in the first few days after treatment; but this should fade quickly. Patients can typically get back to normal daily routines immediately after the procedure.
Results of cosmetic treatment with Dysport® can last up to six months. Patients should notice results several days after the procedure is performed. The effects of Dysport® can be maintained with occasional follow-up treatments.
As with any medical or surgical procedure, there are risks involved with a Dysport injection. Please review the Dysport website for additional information. Dysport Website
