Dysport is a wrinkle reduction treatment that can be injected into certain parts of the face to give the skin a smoother appearance and reduce wrinkles. Dysport is commonly used to treat forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
The treatment is FDA-approved and is capable of returning the youthful glow to your face. The injections can also be used to treat cervical dystonia and treat muscle spasms in the upper and lower limbs.
How Does Dysport Work?
The active ingredient in Dysport is botulinum toxin Type A, which is a neuromuscular agent that blocks nerve muscle activity. It prevents the nerves from sending signals to the muscles whenever you smile, laugh, or exercise your facial muscles.
The injections relax the chosen muscles so they are unable to create wrinkles whenever they move. The treatment will only affect the targeted muscles, allowing the rest of the face to function normally. It is perfect for adults who seek to eliminate wrinkles but are fearful of the dreaded “frozen face” syndrome people come to expect from similar procedures.
Are you a Good Candidate?
The treatment is ideal for those who have mild to moderate wrinkles, but it is not suitable for people with deep wrinkles. If you are under the age or 18 or over 65, you are not a good candidate. If you have a skin infection in the treatment area, you will be advised to wait until your infection dies down.
If you are allergic to any of Dysport’s ingredients or cow’s milk protein, you cannot use Dysport. For those who seek a minimally invasive approach to skin revitalization, Dysport will prove to be a great treatment.
What are the Procedure Details?
To begin, the treatment area will be cleaned with an alcohol wipe to reduce the risk of infection. A local anesthetic may be used to numb the treatment site, but Dysport can be injected without numbing cream as it does not cause significant discomfort. The treatment will not take any more than ten to twenty minutes, and the number of injections you receive is dependent on the nature of your wrinkles.
What Results Can You Expect and What is the Recovery Like?
Post treatment, you can expect to see your frown lines and wrinkles relax within three to four days. It may take up to a week for results to be visible. You can expect the results to last four to five months, and you will need continuous treatments to ensure that you maintain your desired results.
Dysport has no downtime and you can immediately resume all of your normal activities. You are likely to experience some mild numbing and bruising at the treatment site. The treatment area will be a little red and swollen, and you may experience a mild headache, which will dissipate within two hours.
Your doctor may provide you with some painkillers, but most of the time, this will not be necessary as the pain is very mild. You can expect all the bruising and redness to disappear within a couple of days.
