Dysport® Long Island
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are nonsurgical, physician-administered treatments that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles between the brows, across the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet), and on the bridge of the nose. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injections are most effective in men and women from 18 to 65 years of age.
Dysport® has recently emerged on the American market, but has been used in Canada and Europe for years.
Dysport®, which is very similar to BOTOX®, has recently emerged on the American market and has been growing in following. Europe and Canada have been using Dysport® for years. Both BOTOX® and Dysport® are Botulinum toxin type A, and are purified substances derived from Clostridium botulinum bacterium.
How Does Dysport® Work?
This injectable product is classified as a neuromodulator, a substance that affects neurotransmitters’ effects on nerves. Dysport® blocks nerve signals to the facial muscles, which are the cause of many types of facial wrinkles.
Over the years, people form the same facial expressions and make the same facial movements repeatedly. This makes it more difficult for muscles to return to a restful state; instead, they stay contracted and stiff. This causes the overlying skin to bunch and form wrinkles.
With injections of Dysport®, the contracted facial muscles can relax, allowing the skin to relax and look smooth again.
Is Dysport® Right for Me?
This product is an excellent option for patients looking for effective facial rejuvenation that does not require any scalpels or incisions. You are an ideal candidate for a treatment session if you have fine lines and wrinkles and you have realistic expectations in terms of results.
Dysport® injections are most effective in men and women from 18 to 65 years of age. If you have any active skin infections in the treatment areas, these must be addressed before you can come in for an injection session.
This treatment is specifically effective on wrinkles caused by contracted muscles. For moderate and deep wrinkles stemming from volume loss, dermal fillers are a more effective choice. We offer a number of fillers at our office.
What to Expect During Your Treatment Session
At the beginning of your Dysport® treatment session, the targeted areas will be marked as a guide for the injector. Next, a topical or local anesthetic may be administered in order to ensure that you feel no pain or discomfort during treatment. Finally, the injections will be delivered.
After the Session Is Complete
Immediately after a Dysport® session, patients can return to their workday. There is no need to take time off to recover, because Dysport® is a minimally invasive treatment. There may be some slight redness, bruising, and swelling in the injection areas, but these will fade shortly.
After two to three days, patients begin to see the results of their treatment in the form of disappearing fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients who are interested in a Dysport® treatment often wonder about the cost of treatment. The price of a Dysport® treatment is determined by the medical practice offering the treatment and is partially based on the number of units required to achieve the patient’s goals.
