Dysport®, like Botox®, can relax wrinkles. When compared with Botox®, Dysport® can take effect faster and provide longer lasting results. Newly developed and approved by the FDA, Dysport® is an effective wrinkle relaxer.
It can be used effectively to correct crow’s feet and several similar types of wrinkles. Like Botox®, Dysport® is administered via small injections. Although Dysport® shares many similarities with Botox®, it also shares many differences.
What Is It Used to Treat?
Dysport® is primarily used to smooth the wrinkles and frown lines located between the forehead and eyebrows. Also called glabellar lines, these types of wrinkles can be quite unsightly. Dysport® is also capable of smoothing the crow’s feet that occurs around the eyes.
Should You Consider Dysport® Treatment?
Dysport® is a botulinum toxin, and it is made to treat cosmetic problems caused by aging. It greatly reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and it can be a great solution for almost anyone over the age of 18.
If you have large furrows or wrinkles in your forehead, then you should consider this treatment. If you have crow’s feet or small wrinkles around your eyes, then you should consider this treatment. Anyone who has vertical frown lines between the eyebrows should consider being treated with Dysport®.
How the Procedure Works
Before you can undergo the procedure, you will need to schedule a consultation with us at Knox Wellness. The first step of the procedure involves cleansing the target areas with alcohol wipes, which prevents infection. Depending on the situation, a local anesthetic might be applied to the target areas. However, most procedures do not require the use of a numbing agent.
The whole procedure involves a single injection into five different areas of the face. The target areas run between and above the eyebrows. The injections are very quick and rarely cause pain.
Are You A Candidate For Dysport®?
The company that created Dysport® states that it should only be used on the frown lines that develop between the eyebrows on the forehead. If you have mild or moderate wrinkling on your forehead, then you are a great candidate for Dysport® injections. A brow lift might be a better option for individuals who have deep wrinkles on their forehead. You are not a good candidate for Dysport® if you:
- Are allergic to proteins found in cow’s milk
- Are allergic to any of the ingredients used in Dysport®
- Have experienced an allergic reaction to products similar to Dysport®
- Have a skin infection at any of the target injection sites
What Results Can You Expect?
You can expect to see a major reduction in the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead. In most cases, patients see results from Dysport® injections within one to two days.
On average, the results can last for up to five months. Dysport® relaxes the wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. Since Dysport® has been approved by the FDA, it is safe to use.
