There are so many wrinkle reduction procedures on the market; it’s hard for patients to narrow down which one could be right for them. From injections to facelifts, the options are almost endless. Dysport® is one of the newer wrinkle reduction injections on the market, and it’s very similar to the tried-and-true BOTOX® injections.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable that relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. When the muscles are relaxed, it smooths the skin and reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles. Dysport® has been approved by the FDA to reduce frown lines, lift the brow, and smooth the wrinkles on the neck, around the eyes, and surrounding the mouth.
How Long Do Dysport® Results Last?
Results can last for several months. If large muscles are being treated, or a patient is very facially expressive, the treatments might need to occur more often. The good news is over time, the muscles become trained to stay relaxed, so treatments are needed less and less.
What Should Patients Avoid Prior to Treatment?
Medical experts recommend patients avoid products containing aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications before treatment. Aspirin can thin the blood and increase the chances of bruising at the injection sites.
What is the Treatment Like?
Patients can have their Dysport® injections done during their lunch break because it’s a short treatment. When patients get to their appointment, the provider will map out the areas that are supposed to be treated and decide how much of the Dysport® is needed. How many injections are needed depends entirely on the patient and their treatment goals.
What is Recovery Like?
Patients may need to remain upright for a few hours. Also, individuals should speak to the provider regarding whether strenuous activity should be avoided.
Can Patients Switch from BOTOX® to Dysport®?
Patients who have used BOTOX® in the past can switch to Dysport® without any complications. They should speak with the provider about their history with BOTOX®. If it was a good fit for them, then Dysport® may be, too.
