What are Dysport injections?
Dysport injections are made from botulinum protein and are designed to freeze your muscles so your skin can rest and become more smooth and relaxed. This treatment is effective for moderate and severe wrinkles, mainly those between the eyebrows. Dysport injections can also help prevent future wrinkles from developing. Dysport injections may work if BOTOX does not. Furthermore, Dysport injections tend to last longer than BOTOX injections. Dysport injections can last up to six months, while BOTOX usually only lasts three months. If you think Dysport injections may be right for you, contact Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dover, OH to learn more about Dysport and how Dr. Hartman can help you today.
Who is a good candidate for Dysport injections?
Dysport is an option at almost any age, and our patients range from 20 – 90 years old. Since you can use Dysport injections as both a preventive measure and a treatment, the age range for this procedure varies widely. The active ingredient in Dysport, Botulinum neurotoxin, blocks the neurotransmitters that trigger your muscles contraction. This results in smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. You can also combine your Dysport injections with other treatments to maximize your aesthetic results, like fillers for extra volume in your lips and cheeks or laser skin treatments. These options can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Hartman before your procedure.
What is recovery like after Dysport injections?
You should see results within three days, but you may need a touch-up treatment to reach your optimal results. After this, you may also need maintenance treatments to keep your results. You may experience redness and swelling at your injection site for up to 30 minutes. Bruising is less common but may still occur. Dysport is a relatively safe procedure and rarely has adverse side effects. While each patient is different, most people experience results for up to six months. Dr. Hartman can help you determine the best course of treatment for your specific goals.
