Have you been looking for treatment options to help smooth out wrinkles and lines on your face? Dysport is a wrinkle-reduction treatment that may be right for you. At Vibrant Rejuvenation in Commack, NY, we offer many different treatments to help with concerns about facial wrinkles. We believe in treatments that keep your natural beauty intact and still keep you looking like you. Dysport injections can provide subtle and natural-looking treatments for dynamic wrinkles and lines.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator that is used to temporarily improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines such as frown lines. It is made from a protein called botulinum toxin type A, which is derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It temporarily blocks signals that cause the muscles to contract. When these muscles remain motionless, the skin in the area can also stay smooth and unwrinkled.
What Is Dysport Used For?
Frown Lines Between the Eyebrows
Dysport is FDA-approved specifically to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes. These lines, sometimes called glabellar lines, can form as a result of frequent muscle contractions, typically during squinting, frowning, or concentrating. This is one of the primary uses for Dysport at our practice, and it can help to achieve subtle smoothing of frown lines for several months.
Another use for Dysport is to reduce the appearance of horizontal forehead lines. These lines can form due to repeated muscle contractions caused by raising the eyebrows or expressing surprise. Dysport injections can relax these muscles, causing the skin on your forehead to remain smooth.
Dysport for Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet are the tiny sunburst lines that can appear at the corners of your eyes because of repeated muscle contractions while smiling or squinting. Dysport for crow’s feet can target these muscles leading to a reduction in wrinkles that can last for several months.
Other Lines and Wrinkles
Dysport is a versatile treatment. While FDA-approved for glabellar lines, it can also be used to treat other lines on the face as long as they are caused by muscle movement. You can talk to your doctor about whether Dysport is the right treatment for your lines and wrinkles.
What Are the Benefits of Dysport?
Quick Treatment Time
Dysport appointments can be easily scheduled in the middle of a busy day. The injections themselves take only a few minutes, but we will also set aside time for a consultation to determine the right injection points and the number of units. The exact length of your treatment will depend on how many areas are being treated and whether you elect to have numbing cream applied before the treatment.
Dysport has a specific formulation that allows it to begin working even faster than other neuromodulators. Treatments can begin to take effect in as little as two to three days. Faster results mean that you don’t have to plan as far ahead if you decide you want to reduce the appearance of your wrinkles for a big event.
Dysport doesn’t come with a lot of downtimes. You can go straight from your treatment to the rest of your day. Your doctor will let you know if there are specific activities that you will need to avoid in the hours after your Dysport injections.
Neuromodulator Before and After Pictures
The Difference Between Dysport vs. Botox
Dysport and Botox are both neuromodulators that are effective at treating dynamic wrinkles in the face. Both of them are used in different capacities at our practice. While they share the same active ingredient, they have different formulations and different dosages which give us more treatment options to provide more versatile services.
Dysport has a more diluted formulation which can make it better suited for certain areas and applications. Dysport also contains smaller molecules, which allows it to spread more easily throughout the treatment area and also causes it to take effect more quickly.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dysport
How Long Does Dysport Last?
When injected into frown lines or other wrinkles, Dysport can last up to five months. Dysport treatment results can vary depending on your individual metabolism, which areas your doctor treats, and the number of units you have received.
What Do Dysport Treatments Feel Like?
Dysport injections are given using a syringe and a very fine needle. These needles do not typically cause significant discomfort. During your Dysport treatment, we will mark several different points in the area where we will give your injections. Then, a small amount of the Dysport solution will be injected into each point. If you want to minimize discomfort, we can plan time before your injections to apply a topical anesthetic that can numb the skin in the treatment area.
Who Can Receive Dysport Treatments?
Dysport can be used for most people who are looking to reduce the appearance of expression lines. However, the best candidates are those who have discussed Dysport treatments with their doctor and understand the treatment and possible results. It is also important to talk to us about your medical history to make sure there are no contraindications. A consultation with us is always the best place to start if you are wondering if you are a good candidate for Dysport injections.
