A BOTOX® Alternative
While BOTOX is the most well-known of all neuromodulators, it is not your only option. Dysport® is a slightly different formula and may be appropriate for certain facial areas, as it is thinner and spreads differently, and can create a very natural look in smoothing forehead lines. It was developed as an anti-aging treatment that allowed for greater facial expressiveness to be retained.
Although the formula is thinner and spreads more easily, the critical point in a successful treatment is in the skills of your injector. Dysport must be injected into the correct muscle strands, and in the right quantity to produce the result you envision. Never risk a facial treatment from anyone other than a highly skilled medical professional with years of experience in neuromodulator injections.
Is Dysport Right for Me?
If you struggle with the signs of aging skin, you may be a candidate for Dysport injections. The formula is unique, with smaller molecules that work faster and spread more easily. This may not be appropriate for some facial areas—but for forehead creases, Dysport may be the optimal choice.
What Are The Benefits of Dysport?
Dysport offers several important benefits, including:
- Fast, easy treatment
- Spreads evenly
- Results appear more quickly due to thinner formula
- No anesthetic required
- A soft, natural look
What Determines If I Am A Candidate?
During your consultation, Dr. Flugstad and Dr. Rivet will discuss your complete medical history. This will include any medical conditions you have or have had, as well as medications you have recently received or are currently taking, such as:
- Muscle relaxants
- Allergy medication
- Blood thinners
- Sleep medications
- Cold medications
They will also want to know about any over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements you use, since the interaction of Dysport with other health products or prescription medicines may cause side effects.
Why Select Us For Dysport Treatments?
The two critical issues in determining the success of any treatment are the selection of the correct product and injection technique. While Dysport and BOTOX are very similar, our plastic surgeons have extensive knowledge and experience with neuromodulators, and they understand the differences between the products. Their conservative approach and precision injection technique are the reason so many patients rely on our doctors to keep them looking young and vital.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often will I need injections?
How long your Dysport results last vary greatly with each patient and are difficult to predict, but you can certainly detect if they are beginning to wear off. It has been found that getting a maintenance treatment before the results have completely worn off may be effective in extending the positive effects, as time goes on.
Am I a good candidate for Dysport?
Dysport is generally considered a highly safe treatment for most adults, but it is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, are sensitive to the active ingredient, have milk allergies, or are over 65.
How soon will I see results and how long will they last?
Results from Dysport are typically seen within two to five days and can last from three to six months. One of the advantages of Dysport is that the results appear faster than with BOTOX, so if you have limited time before an important event, Dysport is faster acting.
