Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator used to smooth lines and wrinkles. It was developed to produce an exceptionally natural-looking result. Dysport is often the injectable of choice for those who want to ensure they are able to maintain their natural facial expressions, but would like to see lines, wrinkles and creases fade.
What is Dysport?
Dysport belongs to the family of cosmetic injectables known as neurotoxins or neuromodulators. Created from a form of botulinum toxin A, these formulas act to disrupt the communication between your nervous system and targeted muscles strands, preventing constant contractions. By relaxing the facial muscles, Dysport injections smooth facial lines and wrinkles and prevents the formation of new lines.
How is Dysport used?
Each day, your face is busy making expressions. Over time, the constant facial expressions create lines and creases, leaving you looking appear aged or tired. Dysport is administered through a careful, precision series of small injections. Wrinkle-relaxing injections are one of the top non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed today, and are considered a safe, effective method of maintaining a youthful appearance. The artistry comes in the delicate manner employed by Dr. Kim in administering neuromodulators. Understanding that sometimes less is more, Dr. Kim ensures your injections with Dysport are performed with a precision technique.
Anti-aging treatments with Dysport
It is natural for the skin to begin to lose its youthful elasticity as the years pass, leading to the developing etched-in lines. With modern aesthetics, it is possible to outsmart nature, and maintain a smoother, younger look for far longer than ever before – without surgery. Dysport was developed to produce natural-looking results, with only the lines and creases minimized, without affecting your natural expressions.
When compared to BOTOX, Dysport delivers a slightly softer appearance and may be better tolerated for some individuals, especially those who have routinely received BOTOX injections with diminishing results. Dysport can be used to treat lines and wrinkles in many areas of the face and neck including:
Glabellar lines (between the eyebrows)
Forehead lines and creases
What can I expect with Dysport?
Dysport injections are performed in the comfort of our luxurious, private Portland clinic in as little as 30 minutes. While injections with Dysport is a relatively painless procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied to keep you more comfortable. The Dysport is injected meticulously, in measured doses, targeting the areas you want to smooth. If it is your first anti-aging treatment with Dysport, a conservative approach should be taken, as every individual has a slightly different response. The goal is to achieve a smoother, more rested, open facial appearance – that appears fully natural, and allows you to maintain your natural facial expressions.
What can I expect following treatment with Dysport?
As Dysport injections are non-invasive, there is no downtime at all. You could experience some mild swelling, tenderness, and redness at the treatment area. This is normal and should resolve within one to two days. You should avoid vigorous exercise for at least four hours following Dysport injections and should avoid touching the area for several hours while the product settles into place. Visible results appear after a few days, with full results noticeable approximately ten days following treatment. You will be able to enjoy your results for three to four months before you will need maintenance injections.
