Dysport® Cosmetic, like Botox Cosmetic, is a simple and effective procedure with little downtime and recovery. Most patients return directly to work and see improvement in as little as a few days.
What is Dysport?
Dysport Cosmetic is in a class of drugs called “neuromodulators”. It is a purified protein that temporarily relaxes the muscle contraction that causes wrinkles in the face. Over time, this wears off and the muscle returns to it’s previous state. With repeated injections over time, wrinkles will disappear or soften, often helping prevent permanent lines.
Where can I use Dysport?
- Frown lines between eyebrows
- Crow’s feet(wrinkles around eyes)
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines(lines on nose)
- Wrinkles around lips
- Downturning mouth
- Dimpling chin or prominent chin crease
- Muscular neck bands
How long does Dysport last?
On average 3-4 months, depending on the dose, area treated, and the individual’s metabolism.
Does Dysport treatment hurt?
Your comfort is very important to us. We use a small ice pack to “freeze” the area to be treated before the injection, along with the tiniest needle, discomfort is minimal.
When will I see results from Dysport?
You will begin to see improvement in 2- 3 days, maximum effect of Dysport is achieved 10-14 days after your treatment. A follow-up will be scheduled 10-14 days after your first treatment with us to be ensure we are both happy with your results.
Will I look different after Dysport treatment?
Our goal is to decrease the severity of your lines and wrinkles. We want a natural result not an “overdone” look. Most people look refreshed and relaxed after the treatment has taken effect. If you have very deep “permanent” lines these will decrease but not completely disappear. We can discuss other treatments to improve permanent lines at your consultation.
How long will the Dysport treatment take?
Typically the treatment lasts 10-20 minutes, we want to insure you are very comfortable.
Are there any side effects?
Typically there are no side effects. Occasionally a small amount of redness or tiny bruise which will resolve quickly. There is a small amount of swelling where Dysport was administered and this disappears within 15-30 minutes after treatment. Rarely clients have a minor headache or achy feeling for 24 hours or less.
