What is Dysport®?

Dysport® is an injectable and nonsurgical anti-aging treatment which can smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and in the forehead, rejuvenating the upper facial area of patients and preventing the further development of these aging symptoms. Patients receive Dysport® through a few quick injections which they can have at New Skin & Body Aesthetics.

This injectable treatment is often referred to as a “neuromodulator” because it temporarily relaxes the contractions of the facial muscles into which it is injected. When these muscles relax, wrinkles will appear minimized, and it may even eliminate finer wrinkles in some patients. Because Dysport® minimizes muscle contractions, it is an effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles of the face, wrinkles caused by facial expressions.

In addition, Dysport® complements other cosmetic treatments very well. For example, you can have Dysport® to treat your dynamic wrinkles while you have fillers to treat loss of volume caused by depleted collagen. Together, these treatments can provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation when patients desire more substantial results. You can also easily and safely have a Dysport® treatment over your lunch hour.

How Does Dysport® Work?

Dysport® is a botulinum-toxin based cosmetic treatment, also known as a neuromodulator, because of its relaxing effects on muscle tissues. These effects make it an ideal rejuvenation treatment for dynamic wrinkles — wrinkles caused when we make natural facial expressions — and it can help in preventing these aging signs from developing further. The neuromodulator treatment also gives patients long-lasting results with a high level of convenience and safety. Dysport® is highly-effective in smoothing fine lines and wrinkles in the upper portion of the face, specifically the lines between the eyebrows, around the eyes and in the forehead.

What Results Can I Expect After Dysport®?

Dysport® produces fast results. Patients often see improvements to their aging concerns within two to three days of having their Dysport® treatment. Most patients, however, see their results develop during the first seven days after having Dysport®. However, the rejuvenating effects of the treatment will continue to develop for up to four months after their last injections.

To maintain these results, patients will require periodic touch-ups, and your medical provider at New Skin & Body Aesthetics can recommend the optimal number of Dysport® sessions to have annually based on your responsiveness to the treatment and the severity of your symptoms. The convenience of the procedure along with the very low level of risk makes Dysport® a compelling alternative to more invasive rejuvenation treatments and one which can prevent the need for those procedures for some time.

Q: What can I expect during my Dysport® treatment?

A: Dysport® treatment is a very effective rejuvenation treatment as well as a very fast and easy procedure to have. You will not need to prepare beforehand to have your Dysport® treatment. When your appointment day arrives, your medical provider will seat you in the procedure room and cleanse the areas which will receive the Dysport® injections.

You will generally not need to have any topical anesthetic administered to you to make your Dysport® treatment more comfortable. The injectable is delivered by needle so you will feel small pin-prick sensations where you have Dysport®. Nonetheless, some people may still wish to have a pain reliever if they have extremely sensitive skin or are generally concerned about pain. Let your New Skin & Body Aesthetics medical provider know if this is the case.

Your Dysport® injections take very little time to perform. Your medical provider will carefully inject the correct amount of the injectable into the muscles surrounding your concern areas. The amount of the injectable and the number of injections you will need to have to achieve your desired level of rejuvenation is largely dependent on the existing condition of your skin.

Q: Does Dysport® have any downtime or recovery?

A: You will not have any downtime or recovery after your Dysport® injectable treatment. After your office visit, you may immediately return to your usual schedule and activities. You also will have no special aftercare instructions to follow after having Dysport®. You may experience some mild and temporary swelling or bruising near the injection sites, but these symptoms usually subside within a matter of hours, leaving you to enjoy the start of your results.

Q: Does Dysport® have any risks?

A: Dysport® side effects are relatively rare. The most common side effects are mild and temporary bruising, tenderness, redness and swelling near the treatment area which rapidly subside. Other side effects, when they do occur, can include:

  • Muscle weakness near the injections
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain or stiffness
  • Neck or back pain
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Appetite loss
  • Dry eyes and mouth
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Increased light sensitivity
  • Eyelid swelling or bruising

Contact your medical provider immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.

Also, because Dysport® is a more dilute solution compared to other injectable treatment options, the solution may migrate from the initial injection sites. This occurrence is an extremely uncommon one, but if you are concerned about this issue post-treatment, follow-up with your medical provider immediately.
