What Is Dysport®?
The Food and Drug Administration approved Dysport® as a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles around the face, and it may help improve your self-esteem as well. It usually only takes a few injections before users experience all its benefits. Within a few days after receiving the first injection, many notice a drastic reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Dysport®
Dysport® is a good choice for people dealing with the signs of aging who do not want to go through surgical procedures. Doctors can specifically target the areas of the body where people notice things such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines, or wrinkles around the lips, brows, or neck.
How Is Dysport® Administered?
Doctors inject Dysport® into the muscles surrounding the lines or wrinkles. This forces the muscle to relax, causing the appearance of smoother skin that is free from wrinkles. The procedure is so safe that millions in the United States alone have used the drug as an alternative to surgery. Doctors who have more experience administering the drug can calm your worries and ensure you feel little to no discomfort.
Fine lines and wrinkles form because of simple actions that you do every day. Every time that you smile, frown, chew on the inside of your cheek, or stare intently at something, you force your face into a new position. This can eventually change the way your nerves respond, allowing wrinkles and lines to form. Dysport® changes the reactions of those nerves. It essentially keeps nerves and muscles from receiving certain responses and creates the look of smooth and even skin. This lets you look years younger in just a few short days.
Preparing for Dysport® Injections
Many people choose Dysport® injections because they can get in and out of the office quickly. When you opt for plastic surgery, you usually meet with your doctor multiple times, and you’ll also need to follow instructions before and after your surgery. The person responsible for administering Dysport® will alert you of anything special you need to do. The procedure is safe for most people, except for those taking any type of medication designed to thin the blood. Those who smoke will also need to stop or pause their smoking prior to coming in for an appointment. Dr. Carp will take time to speak with you and give you some advice before you come back for your first injection.
Most people notice little to no changes in the first few days after getting an injection. You may feel slightly tender at the injection spot or notice redness and inflammation there. If you have thin skin, you may also see some signs of bruising. Most symptoms disappear within 48 hours or less. Your skin will slowly begin to look smoother and younger, and most find that their skin looks even better the week after the procedure. Dr. Carp can help you arrange for a follow-up appointment and let you know how to care for your skin at home.
Are Dysport® Injections Right for Me?
Anyone dealing with fine lines and wrinkles who fears surgery is a good candidate for Dysport®. The wrinkles that you see may occur because of how you move your face and use the nerves and muscles in it. Dysport® specifically treats wrinkles and fine lines caused by the overuse of muscles. Regardless of your age or what treatments you have tried in the past, you may be a good candidate for the injection.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
Insurance will generally not cover a Dysport® injection, but here at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer different payment methods for our patients. You can pay by check, cash, debit card or credit card. We also offer financing for patients who qualify.
