What is Dysport?
Another form of Botulinum Toxin Type A available to residents in Tampa is Dysport. Like other injectable wrinkle inhibitors, Botox and Xeomin, Dysport is carefully injected into specific areas of the face such as crow’s feet, forehead, and frown lines. Upon injection, the facial muscles relax, softening existing wrinkles and mitigating new wrinkle formation in the treated areas.
How Does Dysport Work?
Wrinkles and lines around your eyes, crow’s feet, mouth, and forehead are created when you contract the facial muscles to make expressions, e.g., smiling, frowning, etc. Over time, these contractions create creases and lines which become etched into the face, making you look older. Dysport and other Botulinum toxins like Botox and Xeomin, combat wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses that cause facial muscle contractions. In response to relaxed muscles, the skin will flatten, diminishing those unwanted signs of aging.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular injectable option used to improve the appearance of these wrinkles, it isn’t your only option. Solomon Cosmetic Center in Palm Harbor, FL offers alternatives such as Dysport® which can achieve equally dramatic results and help you look as young as you feel. In addition, Dysport is usually cheaper than Botox!
When will I see results from Dysport?
Full results for Dysport, Botox or Xeomin wrinkle inhibitors will generally be achieved in about 4 to 5 days.
How long does Dysport last?
While the procedure will only take fifteen minutes, results can last up to six months. In order to maintain longer lasting results, you will need to return to Solomon Cosmetic Center in Palm Harbor for additional Dysport treatments with Dr. Solomon.
Keep in mind that Dysport is only intended to improve the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by facial muscle contractions. If you would like to improve the appearance of wrinkles caused by aging or collagen depletion, Dr. Solomon may recommend a dermal filler like Radiesse, Bellafill, Restylane or Juvederm to restore volume to parts of the face such as the cheeks and nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth.
