If you’ve been searching for a way to turn back the hands of time and smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles, it’s time to discover Dysport! By reducing specific muscle activity in the face, Dysport injections help treat frown lines between the eyebrows for a brighter, more youthful appearance.
Signs of aging like fine lines are caused by repeated muscle contractions. As Dysport temporarily relaxes these wrinkle-rousing muscles, it allows the skin above to smooth out and soften. Minimally invasive and requiring little to no downtime, Dysport offers near immediate results.
Frequently Asked Questions: Dysport in Chesapeake, VA
Dysport and Botox both contain botulinum toxin, which blocks nerve activity within the muscles and temporarily prevents contractions to relieve fine lines and wrinkles. However, Dysport contains smaller particles which can diffuse more quickly than those in Botox, which may allow results to appear sooner. In addition, Dysport results last slightly longer than Botox, possibly due to the likelihood of larger proteins to cause an immune response and prompt antibody production.
Dysport is injected into five precise points between and above the eyebrows to reduce the muscle contractions responsible for frown lines.
There is no required downtime following treatment, but be sure to avoid heat, strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours to minimize irritation.
You’ll notice improvements two to three days following treatment.
Results from Dysport can last up to five months.
Many patients find treatment comfortable — you may feel a slight pinching sensation while Dysport is being injected, but this dissipates immediately after injection.
As with any injection, you may experience minor side effects such as mild redness, swelling or bruising, but these will resolve on their own within 24 to 48 hours. Visit the official Dysport website to learn more.
