Fine lines and wrinkles are part of the natural aging process, but that doesn’t make it any easier when they start popping up around your eyes, mouth, and forehead.
Your quest to rid your face of wrinkles may lead you down all different kinds of paths, but if you’ve tried all of the skin creams, face masks, and serums on the market, it may be time to consider injectables.
If you aren’t seeing the results you want, consider Dysport. This quick-acting and minimally invasive treatment can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in a matter of days, not weeks. Keep reading to learn how this FDA-approved treatment can give you a refreshed and smoother-looking face.
What Is Dysport?
AbobotulinumtoxinA, commercially known as Dysport, is a prescription medication that is injected just below the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, even major ones.
Despite what many people might think, Dysport is not a newcomer to the world of injectables. It has been approved by the FDA and has been used for over 25 years in clinical settings worldwide, having been greenlit in over 65 countries.
Dysport injections are an attractive procedure for anyone under the age of 65, male or female, who wants to refresh and rejuvenate their skin by smoothing out the areas they aren’t pleased with.
All Dysport injections are administered in our Naples, FL, office by a licensed physician.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport’s active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, is a neurotoxin that relaxes targeted facial muscles and prevents them from contracting to form wrinkles.
Once under your skin, Dysport blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which controls muscle movement and contraction. Dysport can be injected to target glabellar lines, crow’s feet, and other problematic areas on both men and women.
Is Dysport the Same Thing as Botox?
There is a common misconception that Dysport and Botox are the same. Although they are similar, it’s important to recognize that they are not identical. Both injectables use botulinum toxin type A, but Dysport is not as potent as Botox, which means that it can spread out farther and more quickly.
Dysport’s formula can give you quicker and more natural-looking results, with most people seeing the desired results in three to five days.
Dysport Injections for Crow’s Feet and Frown Lines
Although they are natural, crow’s feet and frown lines can leave you looking older than you feel inside. You may find yourself avoiding certain facial expressions to minimize their appearance, but Dysport can help you feel more like you again.
Even just one Dysport treatment from Orchidia Medical Group can give you the freedom to emote however you please without these wrinkles taking over your facial expressions.
Dysport is the ideal injectable if you’re looking to target frown lines on your forehead and you want natural-looking results.
Since Dysport is not as potent as Botox, the injection dosages are typically three times as large. For example, a forehead injection of Botox may be 15 units, but for Dysport, it will be 45 units. However, they will be divided into five portions of nine units and evenly administered across the forehead and brow bone, rather than injected all in one place.
Minimally Invasive Injections Administered by Professionals
One of the best parts of Dysport injections is that they are minimally invasive. The needles that we use slip under your skin with little more than a tiny prick, leaving behind very little evidence of their presence. You never have to worry about any kind of stitches, anesthesia, or strict aftercare like with more invasive cosmetic procedures.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
When you visit Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL, you can always expect to be treated with respect, compassion, and the highest level of professionalism, no matter what procedure you come in for.
When you schedule an appointment for Dysport injections, you can expect to be in and out in under an hour. Once we determine the ideal location for your injections, we can calculate the correct dosage and evenly administer them to give you a more youthful appearance.
The recovery time is extremely short, and the injection site shouldn’t need extensive aftercare. This means you can go about your normal life the very same day.
How Long Do Dysport Injections Last?
On average, Dysport injections last between four and five months. Once the effects start wearing off, we can do a little maintenance to smooth things out again. You will have to schedule touch-up injections to maintain your desired results, but 95% of patients say they are satisfied with just two treatments per year.
When you return to Orchidia Medical Group for any Dysport touch-up appointments, you can expect virtually the same easy and streamlined experience as your first visit.
Find Out Whether Dysport Is Right for You
Unfortunately, Dysport injections are not recommended for everybody. Certain conditions may preclude you from being a suitable candidate for injections.
Some conditions, such as acute inflammation around the planned injection site, can clear up and pose no issue. Whereas others, such as an allergy to cow’s milk protein, will make you unable to receive the injections at all.
