Wrinkles can be a reminder of the passing of time and can sometimes make our faces look older than they are. Fine lines, deep creases, crow’s feet, and more can make some people feel like their appearance doesn’t match their youthful personality. If signs of aging are becoming a concern for you, you can come to us to learn more about your treatment options.
One of these options is Dysport. This neuromodulator can smooth out wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance by targeting the underlying cause of dynamic wrinkles. At Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute in Rosemont, IL, we offer comprehensive Dysport treatments, providing a highly personalized approach to help individuals address their unique skin concerns and achieve their aesthetic goals.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection known for treating moderate to severe wrinkles and lines. It is a neuromodulator that treats expression lines by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle and fold. Dysport is similar to other neuromodulators but has a unique formulation that makes it our choice for certain specific situations.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport works by temporarily inhibiting the signal from the nerves to the muscles that tell certain muscles to contract. By doing this, Dysport effectively reduces the muscle activity that leads to the formation of wrinkles and frown lines. This unique mechanism of action results in the softening and smoothing of existing wrinkles, and may also help prevent the formation of new ones.
What Is Dysport Used For?
Dysport has a range of cosmetic uses, primarily focusing on improving the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. It is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines, the vertical lines that develop between the eyebrows due to frowning. However, its use extends beyond this, and it can be used for smoothing out crow’s feet, forehead lines, and more.
What Are the Advantages of Using Dysport?
Fast-Acting Wrinkle Treatment
Dysport gets to work more quickly than other similar products. Often, patients can begin to see a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles as soon as two to three days after treatment. It’s a fast-acting solution for those seeking immediate improvement in their skin’s appearance.
The results from a single Dysport session can last for many months, providing long-lasting relief from wrinkles and fine lines. This means less frequent visits and a longer duration of enjoying smoother, fresher-looking skin.
One of the key advantages of Dysport is that it’s a non-surgical treatment. This means no invasive procedures and no lengthy recovery periods. It’s a simple, in-office treatment with little to no downtime, perfect for those who aren’t ready for surgical intervention.
Using precise Dysport injections, we can target specific areas of concern, such as crow’s feet or forehead lines. This level of customization allows for individualized treatment plans that focus on each patient’s unique needs, providing the most effective results.
Dysport is able to offer natural-looking results. It helps smooth out wrinkles while still allowing for normal facial expressions. Patients can expect to look refreshed and rejuvenated, but not drastically different or “frozen.”
Fast and Easy Treatment
Most Dysport sessions can be completed in as little as 10-20 minutes. This means you can schedule it easily during your lunch break or at any other time that’s convenient for you.
How Long Does Dysport Last?
The results from Dysport injections can last up to five months. This duration may vary based on the individual’s metabolism, the area treated, and the number of units administered. Regular maintenance treatments can help to prolong these results and ensure continuous wrinkle smoothing.
What Makes Dysport Unique?
What sets Dysport apart is its fast-acting nature and ability to deliver natural-looking results. Dysport diffuses more than some other neuromodulators, which can allow for a broader area of effect. This characteristic makes it particularly effective for treating areas like the forehead, where a more extensive spread is beneficial.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dysport?
Those who are experiencing moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines on their face are typically excellent candidates for Dysport treatments. It’s particularly effective for those looking to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. However, it’s always recommended to have a consultation to determine your individual suitability for this treatment.
Can I Go Back to Normal Activities After Dysport Injections?
Absolutely. Dysport injections require little to no downtime. After your treatment session, you can generally return to your normal activities immediately. However, you may be advised to avoid strenuous activities or heavy lifting for the first 24 hours after treatment to ensure optimal results. You may also want to stay away from alcohol, NSAIDs, and sun exposure while your skin heals.
Is There Any Discomfort Associated With Dysport Injections?
Any discomfort associated with Dysport injections is typically minimal and brief. The injections are delivered using a very fine needle, and some patients describe the sensation as a slight pinch or sting. If you are concerned about discomfort, a topical anesthetic can be applied prior to the treatment to numb the area.
