Dysport® treatment provides temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which mean they can even develop in young adults.
For optimum results, many patients may choose to use Dysport® in conjunction with a filler, laser skin resurfacing and/or radiofrequency 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: Juvéderm Volbella® XC, Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Vollure™ XC, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, Belotero Balance®, Radiesse®, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne, and/or Restylane® Lyft.
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.
What happens during Dysport® treatment?
Using a very fine needle, Dr. Sato will place a series of tiny injections into designated muscles of your face that are causing the unwanted lines and wrinkles. There may be mild discomfort or a stinging sensation during the injection but rest assured that Dysport® is very safe. The treatment takes only a few minutes, requires no anesthetic, and recovery is immediate, allowing you to return to work with no restrictions that same day.
What can I expect while recovering from Dysport® treatment?
Refrain from strenuous activity such as a cardio workout for 24 hours after the injection.
Immediately following Dysport® treatment, some patients may experience minor bruising at one or more of the injection sites. Results are apparent as soon as 24 hours after the treatment and continue to improve up to ten days. The effects of Dysport® typically last up to 4 months.
