How Dysport® Works
Dysport® is a simple, effective, minimally invasive treatment that relaxes facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. Dysport® is supported by over a decade of results and is approved by the FDA as a safe treatment option.
Many facial wrinkles are caused by the habitual constriction of facial muscles through years of use. Similar to Botox®, Dysport® blocks signals to constrict from the facial nerves, allowing muscles to relax, smoothing the appearance of current wrinkles and preventing the formation of future wrinkles.
Additionally, Dysport® treatments have been safely and effectively performed for a variety of conditions, ranging from frown lines to axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits).
Dysport® vs. Botox®
Dysport® is similar to Botox® in many ways. First, it is an alternate dermal injectable used in fighting the signs of aging. Second, it is formulated using botulinum toxin which weakens facial muscles. Lastly, it is administered in precisely the same way, via skilled injection of a qualified medical professional. One of the main differences is that Dysport® is proven effective in some patients that are nonresponsive to Botox® treatment.
Benefits of Dysport®
If you have deep-set wrinkles, including brow furrowing, crow’s feet or vertical lines around the lips, Dysport® may be the right choice in fighting these common signs of aging. With a series of quick injections provided by renowned board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kotis, Dysport® can provide immediate results that exceed your expectations
Candidates for Dysport® Treatment
If you are in good health between the ages of 35 and 65, you may be an excellent candidates for Dysport® treatment. Clients who have built up a resistance to Botox® are also candidates for Dysport®. When consulting with Dr. Kotis, be sure to mention any allergies, as some may be allergic to the ingredients.
Preparing for Dysport® Treatment
Dysport® treatment receives the best results when the injections are made in precise locations. To best prepare for your treatment, schedule your free consultation with Dr. Kotis to discuss with him personally your goals for treatment.
During your treatment, Dr. Kotis places the injections at just the right place to ensure continued expressiveness of facial muscles, while reducing stubborn wrinkles, creases and folds on your face.
The Effects of Dysport®
Dysport® gives temporary wrinkle reduction without affecting the remaining muscles in the face, allowing patients to create their normal, unique facial expressions. Results of a Dysport® treatment are noticeable faster than Botox®, within a day of treatment. Further, clients that choose Dysport® as a part of their skin rejuvenation plan continue to enjoy the results for up to six months before needing additional treatments.
Many people find that after several Dysport® treatments, they don’t need another for a longer period of time because they have “unlearned” the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines.
