What is Dysport?
Dysport is a form of botulinumtoxin Type A, a bacterium that can effectively block chemical signals from the brain that cause muscles to move. This process is called neuromodulation, and it can be an excellent way to release tense muscles that cause furrows or frown lines, as well as block muscle movements that cause wrinkles to form over time (called dynamic wrinkles). Combined together, these two benefits can result in a rejuvenated, younger-looking profile.
Patients who can benefit most from Dysport are those who have signs of aging in areas like the frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases and neck bands. During a consultation, Dr. Diktaban will go over your medical history to ensure you’ll have a safe and effective procedure. He can also assess whether Dysport is the best option for you. Certain patients may benefit more from alternatives like Botox or Jeuveau®, although you may need to consider more invasive treatments if your signs of aging are more severe. Dysport is often most effective when combined with dermal fillers.
What Happens During Dysport Treatment?
Dysport injections can be administered right in our state-of-the-art Manhattan office. We can supply a topical anesthetic if you think you’ll be uncomfortable during the injection process. Once you’re ready, the product is prepared and injected into the individual muscles that cause dynamic wrinkle formation. This can require a careful and methodical approach, so it may require more than one injection per area. Once your areas are fully treated, you can return home.
Results and Recovery
You can expect some minor redness and swelling in the days after your treatment, but it usually subsides quickly. You should avoid massaging or rubbing the area, which can be sensitive and cause the product to spread to unwanted areas. Any bruising usually subsides within a week or so. It can take up to one week for Dysport to produce your full results, and it usually lasts for between three and six months. After this, you can return for re-treatment with our expert injectors.
