Dysport® is a cosmetic injectable that has shown to effectively reduce signs of facial aging. The minimally invasive solution works similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic by relaxing overactive facial muscles to provide a more youthful appearance.
Dysport® was approved by the FDA in June of 2009 as another botulinum-A treatment proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Results from Dysport® can last from 4 – 6 months and it is setting out to differentiate from their competition, BOTOX® by boasting faster results, meaning even less downtime than the already minimal downtime demanded of BOTOX®.
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS DYSPORT® AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dysport® works similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic by causing the underlying facial muscles to relax. When Dysport® is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area; as a result, the muscle relaxes. When the muscle relaxes, the skin overlying the muscle smooths and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. This is because the relaxation of the muscles allows the skin to heal, minimizing the effects of wrinkles.
With Dysport’s key ingredient, Clostridium botulinum, it is able to smooth out the unwanted lines and wrinkles caused by these overactive muscles. In addition to treating the forehead, Dysport® has been shown to significantly reduce the appearance of vertical creases between the eyebrows.
Using a very fine needle, our injector will inject the Dysport® solution into the target area. Most patients will notice an instant improvement in their appearance, though your results may take a few days to become fully realized. Each Dysport® procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes, depending upon the number of treatment areas.
WHAT CAN DYSPORT® TREAT?
Dysport® is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead or frown lines. Dysport® can also be used to correct different types of fine lines and wrinkles such as lines on the nose (bunny lines), sagging angles of the mouth (Marionette lines) or a droopy brow (brow lift). Dysport® can also be used to treat gummy smiles or create a slight lifting of the tip of the nose.
These are the main areas treated with Dysport®, but there are also a variety of other uses, including subtly raising the brows for a mini brow lift effect that, while not as dramatic as a surgical brow lift, can help to open up and brighten the eye area. Dysport® can also be injected into the masseter muscles in the jaw for a slimming effect to soften and feminize a square jaw.
