Dysport®

Dysport – Now Eliminate Those Fine Lines!

When facial muscles interact with sun damaged skin, it may result in vertical lines across your forehead or those ‘frown’ lines between the eyebrows. Dysport is an alternative to BOTOX for improving the look of these moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows in adults up to 65 years.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injection that contains abobotulinumtoxinA (or the Botulinum toxin type A). This Botulinum toxin blocks muscular nerve activity hence causing a temporary reduction in the muscular activity. Dysport works by blocking the signals from the nerves to your muscles resulting in a reduction of any muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles, which can cause frown lines. The facial muscles that are not treated continue to work normally, so you can show expressions like smiling.

Are you a good candidate for Dysport?

Dysport is designed to reduce facial wrinkles in the forehead and glabellar lines in women and men of all skin tones. If you are looking to reduce frown lines in Holland and Grand Rapids, MI and are younger than 65, Dysport is a great option for you.

Do advise your healthcare provider in case you have an allergy to cow’s milk protein or botulinum toxin products.

What can you expect from Dysport?

Injected with a very small needle, the discomfort is minimal with Dysport. Additionally, it spreads up to 3 cm, compared to Botox’s 1 cm, reducing the number of injections required. You may notice a softening of the frown lines and crow’s feet within a day or two; however, full results may take about a week. These results may last up to 4 months or longer for some.

What is the recovery period?

Since no anesthesia is administered and the treatment takes about 15 minutes and there is no downtime.
