Dysport®

Dysport®

Facial Injectable Treatment To Improve Moderate To Severe Frown Lines Between The Eyebrows.

Dysport® is an excellent option for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. These particular wrinkles are not always an indicator of age, but can simply be the result of an expressive face. Repeated movements and muscle contractions from facial expressions leave lines, even in younger adults.

Dysport® targets specific muscles and allows the untreated muscles in your face to move freely so that you can still express yourself. No frozen faces with this treatment. ​At Faces, PLLC, we can provide Dysport® as a standalone treatment or as part of a personalized aesthetic plan. The procedure is performed quickly with no downtime.

What is Dysport®?

Like ​BOTOX®​, ​Xeomin® and Jeaveau,​ Dysport® is a neuromodulator. It gently smooths out dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the small muscle groups that cause them. When Dysport® is injected into muscle tissue, it blocks the nerve signals that normally tell those muscles to move. This process doesn’t damage skin or muscle tissue in any way, but it does effectively get rid of crow’s feet, frown lines, and other creases that appear when you make facial expressions.

How Long Does Dysport® Last?

Nerve cells have a powerful ability to regenerate. Nerves that are treated with neuromodulators eventually renew themselves and resume functioning normally—that’s why treatments like Dysport® can’t permanently “freeze” any part of the face. If you don’t like the way Dysport® looks on you, you can rest assured that your face will return to its prior state within about four months.

If you do enjoy the many benefits of Dysport®, you can maintain your results with another round of injections​ once​ ​after​ three months have passed. After several Dysport® injection sessions, you’ll notice that your muscles remain more relaxed. This effect arises because Dysport® gradually “trains” treated muscles to behave a certain way. At this point, you’ll only need to have Dysport® injections once every six months to stay wrinkle-free.

Research suggests that long-term neuromodulator use may have another important advantage: controlling dynamic wrinkles reduces stress on the skin by limiting stretching and creasing. Over time, this inhibits the formation of static wrinkles (etched-in lines that remain visible when your face is at rest). Committing to a regular injection schedule can potentially delay the need for more invasive procedures, like ​facelift surgery​.

How Does Dysport® Differ from BOTOX®?

Many of our patients ask us whether Dysport® is better than BOTOX®, but there isn’t a clear-cut answer to this question. Both Dysport® and BOTOX® have unique advantages, so which compound you choose will depend on your individual goals.

One of the primary differences between these two compounds is their time of onset: Dysport® acts more quickly than BOTOX®; our patients report seeing results in as little as two to three days (as compared to five to seven days with BOTOX®). If you’re hoping to look your best for a last-minute event, Dysport® is probably your best option. Some evidence suggests that Dysport® also lasts a bit longer than BOTOX®, particularly after repeated treatments​, although this is controversial and at any rate, is only a week or two at most.

In terms of aesthetics, Dysport® produces slightly more subtle results than BOTOX®. These gradually nuanced changes make Dysport® a great choice for younger patients and for patients who are nervous about trying neuromodulators for the first time. Dysport® has a 97% patient satisfaction rate, and it’s currently used in 69 countries, so we feel confident that you’ll love your results.

What to Expect During Dysport® Treatment

Dysport® treatment is quick, easy, and painless for most patients. The injections are carried out using special syringes with very tiny needles to avoid pain and brusing. The entire treatment process usually only takes a few minutes, and patients are free to return to all of their normal activities afterward

Does Dysport® Have Any Side Effects?

Most people don’t experience any side effects after having Dysport® injections. Like BOTOX®, Dysport® has been used for over 25 years, so we know this compound is very safe. You may notice some slight redness or swelling around your injection sites, but this results from the injection process, not Dysport® itself. You can use a cool compress to treat these symptoms, and they should go away within a few hours. ​If you bruise easily, you may bruise with any injection. Avoiding Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or Advil, prior to you appointment can help decrease the tendency to bruise.

In rare cases, patients have experienced a mild headache after Dysport® treatment. If this happens to you, feel free to use an over-the-counter pain reliever to restore your comfort. Avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours after having Dysport® injections is the best way to prevent headaches, bruising, and swelling.

Combining Dysport® with Complementary Procedures

Though Dysport® creates excellent results on its own, we sometimes recommend combining this treatment with other injectables, like dermal fillers. Dermal fillers amplify facial volume and fill in static wrinkles, effectively lifting and smoothing patients’ facial features. Combining both types o​f injectable​s produces comprehensive anti-aging benefits similar to those of a mini facelift. This approach to treatment is, therefore, often called a “liquid facelift.” Liquid facelifts are the perfect choice for patients with busy schedules and for those who don’t feel ready for surgery.

Dysport® and other injectables can rejuvenate your appearance without the expense or inconvenience associated with surgery. Injectables can also enhance the results of surgical procedures, taking a decade or more off your face. For many people, these versatile treatments are key to looking and feeling better.
