Dysport® is an injectable treatment designed to target overactive facial muscles that can cause wrinkles. If your facial muscles are prone to involuntary contraction, you may begin to notice horizontal creases across the brow, frown lines between the eyebrows (also called glabellar lines), and other fine lines and wrinkles. With Dysport®, Dr. Richard Sherman can help you maintain smoother, younger looking skin.
How does Dysport® work?
The key to the success of this non-surgical injectable treatment is a botulinum toxin-based solution similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic. This solution can temporarily prevent overactive facial muscles from contracting, ultimately resulting fewer fine lines, wrinkles, and deep creases. During your consultation, Dr. Sherman will examine the location and severity of your facial lines, discuss your personal cosmetic goals, and create a customized treatment plan that can give you smoother skin and natural-looking results.
What can I expect during the Dysport® procedure?
Before your treatment begins, Dr. Sherman will apply a topical anesthetic to the target sites to help ensure your comfort during the procedure. The Dysport® solution can then be gently injected at each target site using a very fine needle. The entire procedure can usually be completed within fifteen minutes. Since there is typically no downtime associated with Dysport® injections, many of our patients schedule their appointments during their lunch hour or between daily errands.
How long will my Dysport® results last?
Though most patients return to their normal activities immediately, some patients may experience redness, swelling, or bruising immediately following their Dysport® procedure. If you do experience these mild side effects, they should quickly dissipate within a few days. Most Dysport® patients will notice a significant reduction in visible facial aging within 2-3 days, and the results of Dysport® often continue to improve over the following few weeks. Your final results can last up to four months, and you can easily maintain your smoother, more youthful looking skin with follow-up treatments. For a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation, Dysport® may be combined with other cosmetic injectable treatments, such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, or Sculptra® Aesthetic.
