Dysport® is an alternative to BOTOX® that is used temporarily to improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face.
Dysport® is affordable and effective. Our NSPS providers use Dysport® to soften frown lines between the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport is an option for patients who are looking for a fast-acting, natural looking, long-lasting injection to help with the appearance of glabella lines, the area between the eyebrows. Dysport is a neurotoxin, derived from botulinum toxin, that stops muscle contractions by reducing specific muscle activity. Results may last up to four months after treatment.
Are you a candidate for Dysport?
Dysport is intended for adults with moderate to severe facial lines. The doctors here at Northwestern Specialists in Plastic Surgery and Med Spa will review your history and ask questions at your consultation to determine if you are a good candidate.
How Much Dysport Will I Need?
The amount of product needed and the number of injections will depend on the area being treated and the strength of the muscles being targeted. Each individual’s muscle strength is different which is why amounts may vary from person to person.
Is There Downtime After Dysport Injections?
The beauty behind Dysport injections is that it is a fast acting treatment. There is no downtime required after getting Dysport, but we recommend no strenuous activities immediately after treatment. Some patients only have to wait about 2-3 days before you begin seeing results of the treatment, and bruising or swelling should be very minimal. Most patients get right back to their normal routine immediately after treatment.
Robyn is wonderfully kind and incredibly skillful. She listens to what you want and counsels you to an option that fits your needs. As a student, budget is always top of mind and she helped me pick a treatment plan that would mask the effect of late nights without breaking my bank. I could not be more content with her work. I wanted to look like myself after the most epic night of sleep, nothing fake and she nailed it.
Dysport: An Alternative to BOTOX
Dysport® is an alternative to BOTOX® that is used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport® blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
How Long Does Dysport Last?
Dysport® provides long-lasting, natural-looking results for up to 4 months. Dysport® is a formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to your first use. You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport® treatments.
