Dysport® treatment provides temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) by reducing specific muscle activity. This non-surgical minimally invasive injectable treatment is able to treat a number of wrinkles, including crow’s feet and horizontal forehead lines.
For optimal results, many patients may choose to use Dysport® in conjunction with a filler, laser skin resurfacing and/or radio frequency skin tightening. For furrows and wrinkles that are caused by loss of volume rather than muscle activity alone, Dr. Sato provides the following dermal fillers:
- The Juvéderm® Collection
- Juvéderm®Volbella XC
- Juvéderm® Ultra XC
- Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
- Juvéderm®Vollure XC
- Juvéderm®Voluma XC
- Belotero Balance®
- The Restylane® Collection
- Restylane® Silk
- Restylane® Refyne
- Restylane® Defyne
- Restylane® Lyft
Dysport® and Wrinkles
Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which mean they can even develop in young adults. After enough of these contractions, it becomes difficult for the muscles to return to their at-rest positions. Contracted and stiff muscles cause the overlying skin to bunch and form wrinkles.
Dysport blocks the nerve impulses to the contracted muscles, allowing them to relax. This in turn allows the skin to relax, smoothing away wrinkles.
Amazing Experience 🙂
I’m so happy with Dr’s Sato patience and dedication. She goes above and beyond expectations, she is very professional and dedicated, and she masters the procedures that she performs. I would definitively love to come back and have new exciting experiences!
Thank you very much for the great service, Doctor Sato!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dysport® Injections?
If you are under 65 years of age and seeking improvement in the look of wrinkles between your eyebrows, then you may be a good candidate for Dysport®.
During your consultation, Dr. Sato will evaluate your medical history and examine your skin to determine if Dysport® is right for you. She will also ask you about your cosmetic goals and walk you through the details of the procedure.
What Happens During Dysport® Treatment?
At the start of the Dysport® skin-rejuvenation procedure, the treatment areas are carefully marked. These marks serve as a guide for injection and allow for greater accuracy.
Using a very fine needle, Dr. Sato will place a series of tiny Dysport® injections into the designated muscles of your face that are causing the unwanted lines and wrinkles. There may be mild discomfort or a stinging sensation during the injections, but rest assured that Dysport® is very safe.
The treatment takes only a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Recovery is immediate and there is no downtime, allowing you to return to work with no restrictions that same day. Because of this, it is considered a lunchtime procedure.
What Can I Expect While Recovering from Dysport® Treatment??
Immediately following Dysport® treatment, some patients may experience minor bruising at one or more of the injection sites. Refrain from strenuous activities such as cardio workouts for 24 hours after the injection.
Results are apparent as soon as 24 hours after the treatment and continue to improve for up to 10 days. The effects of Dysport® typically last up to 4 months. After this, patients are able to come in for follow-up treatments to maintain the injectable’s results.
