Dysport is one of our injectable treatments for early signs of aging that develop in the eye and forehead area.
Dysport injections are designed to work on dynamic wrinkles that form when you use facial expressions. The repeat pressure from facial expressions causes a pinching that the skin cannot resist due to changes that occur as you get older. Dysport® contains botulinum toxin that works temporarily on the muscles to give the skin time to relax and reduce wrinkles.
Facial line fillers are designed to target specific areas of the face to help you look younger. Dysport® helps with:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines between the eyes
If you have a history of adverse reactions to facial line fillers, such as Dysport®, let Dr. Baker know. He will determine if Dysport® or another of our dermal fillers and injectables is the right solution.
Dysport® fillers work by introducing a substance into the facial muscles to soften lines and wrinkles. Several injections are needed for each type of wrinkle. Forehead wrinkles and frown lines may require up to five injection points per area. Crow’s feet may require up to three injection sites. The distribution of Dysport® ensures a consistent wrinkle-reducing result.
As with any type of injection, Dysport® injections may trigger an inflammatory response in your skin. Symptoms may include swelling, tenderness and bruising, and the symptoms are localized around each injection site. The symptoms typically last only one to two days and are very subtle.
The results of Dysport® injections vary between patients. On average, Dysport® last four to six months. Dr. Baker schedules follow-up appointments for your initial treatment to monitor the response to the injections. He will then recommend a schedule of maintenance treatments.
