Dysport® is becoming popular in Naples and Fort Myers for the temporary treatment of lines and wrinkles. Dysport works by relaxing certain facial muscles, such as those in the area in between and above the eyebrows, that contribute to dynamic wrinkles.
If you are considering a wrinkle treatment in Naples-Ft. Myers, Dysport might just be what you’re looking for to treat a tired or sad appearance. Call us at (239) 262-5662 today to schedule a personal consultation at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Med Spa of Naples. Dysport – no surgery, no downtime, no wrinkles.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for dynamic wrinkles, meaning those that are caused over time by facial movement. It is made of a purified form of botulinum toxin, and results can be seen shortly after treatment.
How does Dysport work?
Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport temporarily relaxes facial muscles to improve and rejuvenate the face. The treatment blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles. With this signal blocked, the muscles relax and the facial wrinkles they cause are softened.
Is Dysport safe?
Dysport is safe when performed by a skilled injector such as Dr. Hasen or his physian assistant, Brandie, and is indicated for individuals 18 years and older.
What areas can be treated?
The area of FDA indication is the frown lines between the eyebrows. It can be used in an “off-label” manner to treat around the eyes like the crow’s feet (wrinkles on either side of the eyes). Lines on the forehead and around the mouth also may be treated. Certain chin creases and neck bands may be improved with a Dysport injection as well. Dysport will not remove excess skin around the neck and jawline, however, and patients looking to tighten lax skin may want to ask about a facelift in Naples.
What is a Dysport treatment like?
During your treatment, your Dr. Hasen or Brandie will treat the target area with Dysport. The treatment only takes about 10 to 20 minutes, making it an easy and comfortable experience.
How long does it last?
Dysport results typically last about 3 to 4 months before retreatment is necessary.
Will it radically change my appearance?
Dysport is a temporary, non-surgical treatment, and it will not drastically or permanently change your appearance.
Will it make me lose my expressions?
Dysport will not limit your ability to make a full range of facial expressions. Although it temporarily reduces the muscle activity that contributes to lines and wrinkles, it only will relax the area in which it is treating. Therefore, you will still be able to smile and make various expressions.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are extremely rare. A spread of toxins may occur, which may lead to problems with the elevation of the eyelids (eyelid ptosis) and blurred or double vision.
