Over the past several years, many individuals have chosen to invest in cosmetic injectables to improve his or her appearance rather than undergoing invasive surgery. Common cosmetic injectables used include Botox injections, Dysport, and dermal fillers like Restylane and Perlane. This article will take a closer look at Dysport injections.

  • Uses and Indications

Dysport is a prescription injectable used to reduce or eliminate the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines without significantly changing the entire look of one’s face. Unlike other treatments, Dysport injections allow untreated facial muscles to work as normal, ultimately allowing patients to maintain normal facial expressions and avoid an “overly-tight” appearance. Dysport injections are typically appropriate for individuals in good health with realistic expectations regarding the results. However, it is important that you notify your cosmetic surgeon of any medical conditions that may affect your facial muscles and nerves, as well as any bleeding problems, heart conditions, or uncontrolled diabetes. It is also crucial to tell your surgeon if you have previously had surgery on your forehead muscles as this may interfere with the final results.

  • How It Works

Your surgeon will inject Dysport into small muscles in order to temporarily block the nerve signals. By reducing the muscle activity, the wrinkles will improve. Dysport can effectively prevent the contraction and formation of frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet.

  • Recovery and Results

As with other cosmetic injectables, Dysport is not associated with significant downtime and often allows you to return to your normal activities immediately following the injection. Most patients are advised not to undergo repeated Dysport injections more frequently than every 90 days.

The best way to determine if Dysport injections are right for you is to consult with your Danville plastic surgeon.
