When it comes to achieving a more youthful appearance, many individuals turn to non-surgical cosmetic treatments. One option that can provide anti-aging benefits without the downtime is Dysport. If you are in the Las Vegas area and are looking for a way to reduce wrinkles and enhance your appearance, we would love to help at Simply Radiant.
Because Dysport is less well-known than other similar treatments such as Botox, you may be unfamiliar with the unique benefits that this product has to offer. Dysport has a special formulation that makes it the most suitable option for many of our patients who are looking for comprehensive but natural-looking results.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is an FDA-approved neuromodulator that utilizes the protein Botulinum toxin type A to help relax specific muscles in the face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. While being similar to other neuromodulators in terms of its composition and mechanism of action, it has characteristics and advantages that set it apart.
What Sets Dysport Apart From Other Neuromodulators?
The main difference between Dysport and Botox or other similar products is its diluted formulation. Not only is there a smaller amount of the active ingredient per unit of the medication, but it also contains smaller molecules, which can cause it to behave differently than other neuromodulators once injected.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport works by targeting the underlying muscles that can cause wrinkles when they contract. The active ingredient, Botulinum toxin type A, blocks signals between the nerves and the muscles that typically tell the muscles to move. When the muscles are no longer moving in this area, the skin is able to stay smooth and unwrinkled, leading to a more youthful appearance.
The Primary Use of Dysport: Treatment of Glabellar Lines
Dysport is FDA-approved for treating glabellar lines. These are the little lines that form between your eyebrows when you frown or squint. Glabellar lines, sometimes called 11’s or frown lines, can lead to a more aged appearance when they become more deep-set. Dysport is particularly effective at treating deep lines in this area because of its formulation.
Other Cosmetic Uses of Dysport
Dysport can also be used off-label to treat other cosmetic concerns. We use Dysport for crow’s feet and horizontal lines on the forehead. We can also use it to achieve a subtle lift to the eyebrows by injecting the muscles that draw the brows down and causing them to relax.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
It Is Fast Acting
Because of the smaller molecules in Dysport, this neuromodulator is known for acting more quickly on dynamic wrinkles and lines. After injections, it takes between two and four days for the treatment to begin working, which is several days faster than other products.
It Diffuses More Effectively
Because of its formulation, Dysport is able to diffuse more easily throughout the treatment area. There are several advantages to this. The product can treat a larger area with fewer injection points, making the patient more comfortable. Additionally, it can create smoother and more even results that can look more natural.
There Is No Downtime
Once you have received your Dysport injections, you can go back to your normal day. There is no downtime after treatments, so you can go back to work, pick up your kids from school, go grocery shopping, or enjoy a walk. We do recommend that you stay away from strenuous exercise or excessive sun exposure for a day or two after your treatment to optimize your results.
It Is a Personalized Treatment
Dysport injections are versatile and can be used in a variety of ways to address cosmetic concerns. We can use more or less of the medication to produce either subtle or significant results, and we can treat many different areas. We seek to match our treatments to your aesthetic goals.
How Long Does Dysport Last?
Dysport can last up to five months on the average patient. These results may be different for you based on how much was injected, which area was treated, how active you are, and how fast your body metabolizes substances.
What Is Involved in a Dysport Treatment?
We always like to meet with our patients before Dysport treatments to discuss goals, treatment options, medical history, and more. Usually, this can take place the same day as your treatment. Once you are ready for your injections, we will mark the areas that we will inject and use a syringe with a small needle to administer the treatment. This process is fast and usually comes with minimal discomfort. We can give you a topical anesthetic if the pinch of the needle is uncomfortable.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment?
Once your treatment is over, you won’t notice a difference in your muscle movement. The only indication that you have had a treatment might be a little redness at the injection sites, which resolves quickly. After a few days, you’ll notice less movement in the muscles that were injected. Once the full results take effect, you will still be able to smile, frown, and raise your eyebrows. But certain muscles will stay motionless, keeping your skin flat and smooth.
