Serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and surrounding areas
For many people, age brings wrinkles and fine lines. They are part of the aging process. A good skincare routine can keep your skin healthy, but it may not be enough to keep stubborn wrinkles at bay. However, you can effectively reduce the appearance of aging skin with Dysport, a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment.
Dysport injections are a worthy alternative if you are not ready for a surgical procedure. It works on your facial muscles to prevent and treat the signs of aging. Here at AM Facial Plastics in Beverly Hills, CA, we offer Dysport injections to provide you with smoother, more rejuvenated skin. Dr. Moradzadeh will ensure that you are taken care of and comfortable during your treatment.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator injection. Neuromodulators relax the muscles in your face that cause dynamic wrinkles. It is FDA-approved, making it a safe and effective treatment. Dysport contains botulinum toxin, a type of protein that inhibits facial muscle contractions. When Dysport is injected into the deeper layers of your skin, it temporarily paralyzes your muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
The Benefits of Dysport
When you decide to use Dysport, you are in for a treat. This cosmetic treatment has a range of benefits:
- Long-lasting results
- No downtime
- Safe and effective
- Variety of uses
- Prevents wrinkles before they form
- Quick sessions
- Treatments are not painful and do not require anesthesia
What Can Dysport Be Used For?
You can use Dysport for crow’s feet, eye wrinkles, glabella lines, bunny lines, and chin dimpling. You could also have a Dysport lip flip to reduce the appearance of facial lines around your lips. A lip flip will give your lips a slight upward roll for a fuller appearance.
How Long Does Dysport Last?
As mentioned, Dysport is a temporary muscle relaxer. It won’t prevent muscle contractions indefinitely. You should schedule a Dysport treatment every three to four months to maintain your smooth skin. Some patients can enjoy results for up to five months.
The duration of your results depends on your metabolism, so it is different for everyone. Since the treatment sessions are quick, it is easy to have a touch-up session every few months.
It takes some time for Dysport to get to work in your body. You can expect to see results about two to three days after your treatment, with the full results becoming visible after two weeks. Dysport is a fast-working treatment for patients who want to see results shortly after their injection.
Dysport vs. Botox: What’s the Difference Between These Two Neuromodulators?
Dysport and Botox are similar treatments, each with its own unique benefits. It may be challenging to decide which one you should use. Dysport and Botox are made from the botulinum toxin and work in the same way. They are both neuromodulators that relax your muscles to prevent and treat wrinkles. Despite being so alike, there are some ways they differ.
Dysport works faster than Botox. As mentioned, Dysport results can be seen in as little as two to three days, whereas Botox may take up to seven days to work. However, Dysport lasts three to four months, while Botox can last up to six months.
Dysport may be better suited for larger areas since it spreads further than Botox. That is why Dysport is preferred for the treatment of glabella lines and deep wrinkles. Dysport uses a different form of botulinum toxin, making it easier to diffuse throughout a large area.
Schedule a Consultation
Now that we have discussed Dysport vs. Botox, you can make an informed decision about the right treatment for your skin. If you are still unsure, you can visit us in Beverly Hills for a brief consultation. We will assess your skin and desired outcome to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Dysport.
We can also answer all your questions about the treatment to put your mind at ease. If you are happy with the answers you get, we can administer the Dysport injection in the same consultation session.
What Should I Expect From a Dysport Treatment?
One of the greatest aspects of Dysport is how quick the treatments are. You can be in and out of our clinic during your lunch break since a treatment takes about 20-30 minutes. If you don’t have much time for skincare, this cosmetic treatment is ideal, especially because you only need touch-up treatments every few months.
There is no downtime associated with Dysport, and we don’t need to use any form of sedation since the treatments are not painful. You may feel some pressure on the injection site, but it will be over before you know it. These aspects make Dysport a highly convenient treatment for patients who prefer simple treatments.
If you want to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines without surgery, Dysport injections are worth your time. Dysport is suitable for most skin types. It is not only a treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, but it can also be used to prevent the signs of aging. Patients in their 30s can start using Dysport to keep their skin youthful.
Dysport is not suitable for individuals who are breastfeeding or taking muscle-relaxing medication. If you have a muscle-related health condition, tell us about it during your consultation so that we determine whether Dysport is suitable for you.
