Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that diminishes dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face, like frown lines on the forehead. Dysport, like BOTOX, uses a purified form of botulinum toxin type A to temporarily relax or paralyze certain muscles in the face. Once these muscles are relaxed, the frequent contractions that create dynamic wrinkles will be limited and the skin above the muscle will be smoother. This allows you to smile, frown, and leave your face like that as long as you want without causing dynamic wrinkles. After Dysport injections by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Aisha Baron at her Atlanta area office, you can have skin that looks refreshed and youthful for about 4-6 months.
Dysport is a great wrinkle treatment for patients who have:
- Wrinkles around the corners of the eyes (“crow’s feet”)
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
- Other dynamic wrinkles
What To Expect
The doctor can administer Dysport injections in our office, often on the same day as your consultation in about 30-60 minutes. Using an ultra-fine syringe, Dysport is injected in areas marked by the doctor. Most patients do not feel any discomfort after the initial prick of the needle, but a numbing cream may be used to improve your comfort. Patients experience some minor redness and swelling for a couple of hours, but a cold compress can reduce theses side effects.
Dysport commonly lasts longer and spreads further from the injection site than other wrinkle relaxers on the market, which makes it ideal for the areas around the eyes (commonly known as “crow’s feet”). You may see some results right away, but your final results will be revealed a few days after your treatment. Dysport may be used with injectable wrinkle fillers to further improve the appearance of wrinkles and add volume to needed areas.
Popular with many plastic surgeons all over the country, including Dr. Baron, Dysport is considered a safe and highly effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles. Sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift,” Dysport can give you rejuvenated skin with fewer facial lines and wrinkles.
