If you’re seeking another way to treat frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles, Dysport® may be for you. Made with the same purified protein as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is an exciting injectable alternative cleared by the FDA. If you’ve been considering BOTOX or another treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, consider a consultation at our Naples office to discuss Dysport.
A BOTOX® Alternative
Dysport differs from BOTOX Cosmetic treatments in a few key ways. Dysport tends to spread further from the injection site than BOTOX, making it better suited for treating larger areas.
Results of Dysport treatments are usually visible sooner than results from BOTOX. Dysport results should begin to be visible after one or two days, while initial BOTOX results usually take three to five days.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport treats specific facial lines called “dynamic wrinkles.” Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles over time. Dysport and BOTOX work by relaxing facial muscles, allowing the skin to lie smooth and wrinkle-free.
Treatment with Dysport is a very quick, in-office procedure that causes only minimal discomfort (typically compared to an insect bite). There’s no downtime, so you can get back to your usual activities immediately. Results should be visible in one to two days and will last for up to six months. The procedure is easily repeatable to keep your youthful-looking results fresh.
Should Dysport be combined with other cosmetic procedures?
Many people choose to combine their Dysport treatments with dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Dermal fillers can add volume to smooth folds and restore youthful facial fullness. If you’re interested in more permanent facial rejuvenation, you may want to consider a surgical procedure such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery.
