Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are both popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation injectables that are used to temporarily address forehead furrows, creases, wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes. Dysport® is safe and effective treatment to temporarily reduce the visible signs of aging in adults with no downtime and no need for anesthesia.
Dr. Manuel Peña offers many injectables to treat wrinkles and facial lines. During your consultation, you can discuss your concerns and he will suggest the best treatment plan for you.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is made from onabotulinumtoxinA, a safe and FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Dysport®, like BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a neurotoxin in injected into the area between the eyebrows or in the smile lines (Crow’s feet). Dysport® then relaxes the muscles and prevents those muscles from contracting. This muscle contraction is what contributes to the creation of wrinkles and creases.
Are You a Candidate for Dysport®?
If you are self-conscious about the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead creases, or frown lines, Dysport® may be the answer for you. The injections normally take just a few minutes and you can return to normal activities (except some forms of exercise may require a 24-hour break). Dr. Peña can discuss your options in greater detail during your initial consultation.
What Areas of the Face is Dysport® Commonly Used to Treat?
Dysport® is proven effective and safe for treating lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Common areas for Dysport® treatment include the forehead, in between the eye brows, around the eyes, and marionette lines or downturned corners of the mouth. Where you will most benefit from Dysport® treatment is best determined by expert injector, Dr. Manuel Peña.
How is Dysport® Injected?
The precise injection of Dysport® is as follows:
- A topical anesthetic cream is applied to “freeze” the areas to be treated. Usually an ice compress will also be used.
- Dr. Peña will inject a precise amount of Dysport® into your targeted problem areas. The treatment time will vary for each patient.
- Normal daily activities can be immediately resumed but rigorous activities may be restricted for about 24 hours.
Injection patients are discouraged from resting in a horizontal position for several hours following injection. You will be asked to avoid rubbing the injection site as well.
How Long Does Dysport® Last?
Neuromodulators take two days to two weeks to have a full effect. Dysport® injection results last for up to five months.* Your results will depend on factors such as your lifestyle choices and age at the time of injections, but it is uncommon for results to last for a substantially longer amount of time. However, maintaining your results is easy, requiring no more than additional visits to our office for touchup treatments.
