People consider Dysport® when the serums, creams and lotions they use to soften fine lines and wrinkles in their face no longer work. Dysport® resembles BOTOX® in that both are types of purified protein solutions. It differs from BOTOX® in that it has a lower protein load and is believed to spread more evenly when it is injected. Like BOTOX®, it softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and the forehead.
How Dysport® Works
Dysport® works by interrupting a neurotransmitter that controls muscle contractions. When it is injected into a muscle below a wrinkle, the muscle relaxes, and the wrinkle softens. It is especially effective for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
During a treatment, the professional injects the solution into the preselected area. Each session is designed to be quick and convenient. The actual injections usually take just minutes.
The patient can see the results of Dysport® in the days that follow the treatment, and the improvement lasts for multiple months. The good news is that the patient can return to our specialist for maintenance treatments as needed for ongoing results.
Who is a Good Candidate?
A person who’s a good candidate for Dysport® is an adult in good mental and physical health and is bothered by moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on their face. People who may not be good candidates are those who are known to be sensitive or unresponsive to the main ingredient in the solution. It’s also important to have the type of wrinkles that the product can treat in order to qualify for the treatment.
After the Treatment
Most people simply continue on with their regular tasks after a Dysport® treatment. It is important that the patient follow any instructions from the specialist. For example, they should not rub or massage the treated area. With that being said, no real downtime is required, making the treatment convenient for those with busy schedules and lifestyles.
