What Is Dysport?
Dysport is natural and a type of botulinum toxin injection used for the treatment and prevention of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles. Dysport is a noninvasive injection used for anti-aging to target wrinkles between the eyebrows and frown lines. These injections restrict the movement of muscles in the face, reducing additional wrinkles from occurring and reducing the appearance of existing wrinkles. In addition to restricting, the injection also relaxes the muscles so the skin is smoother. It is also sometimes used for certain medical conditions where muscle spasms occur and there are difficulties swallowing.
Ogden Dysport Injections
Dysport primarily targets glabella lines (often referred to as 11 lines) which consist of the skin on your forehead between your eyebrows and above your nose. These muscles contract and the skin moves and pulls when you make certain facial expressions like frowning, concentrating, or scowling which causes deep lines and wrinkles over a long period of time.
Candidates who would benefit the most from Dysport would be those suffering from mild to moderate glabella lines, who are looking to treat and prevent these deep lines and wrinkles. The injections are safest among patients under the age of 65, do not have allergy to the injection, and those who are not pregnant.
What to Expect
Dysport Injections are a quick procedure, normally taking about 30 minutes or less. Patients may experience minimal discomfort and pressure as we use microneedles to insert the product into the skin. These injections are faster than Botox, and patients will see results within 48-72 hours.
After the procedure there will be an observation period to make sure there are no complications or reactions, and then you will be good to go home. Temporary side effects are not common but are possible and can include headaches, minor pain, rash and inflammation at the injection site, and swelling.
