Dysport

Do you think your face gives your age away? Do you wish there were a way to say goodbye to those moderate-to-severe frown lines around your eyes, forehead, and eyebrows? At Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, our dermatological team offers one simple solution for smoothing away those dynamic facial lines and wrinkles: Dysport.

Not everyone wants to go through cosmetic surgery to get more youthful results. Luckily, you don’t have to. This FDA-approved treatment uses a purified form of botulinum toxin (the same ingredient used in Botox). When this substance is injected into specific muscle groups of the face it temporarily causes the muscles to relax and to stop contracting, which results in a smoother and less wrinkled appearance.

If you are someone dealing with crow’s feet, lines around your mouth, or forehead wrinkles, Dysport could be the best approach to giving you smoother skin without having to undergo aggressive and permanent treatments. Getting Dysport is quick and virtually painless, and there is no downtime after your treatment, so you can return to your daily activities immediately after.

It only takes a couple of minutes to administer the injections. The needles used are ultra-thin, making it easy to tolerate the injections without needing topical anesthesia. However, if you are sensitive or a bit nervous about your treatment just let us know and we can apply a numbing cream over the area prior to administering Dysport. Depending on the area or areas you wish to treat, we may inject anywhere from five to 20 needles during the course of one treatment session.

After Dysport is administered, you may notice some redness, swelling, and tenderness at the injection sites. The side effects are usually minimal and symptoms should subside anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. Makeup can easily be applied to these areas to hide any swelling or redness, if you so choose.

One of the benefits of Dysport is that it allows you to rejuvenate your appearance and take years off your face without having to undergo surgery or commit to a treatment that creates permanent results. If you are just starting to consider cosmetic dermatology to reduce wrinkles and lines, Dysport might be the best approach. You can also choose to combine Dysport with other cosmetic skin care treatments.

Results will usually appear a couple days after the injections have been administered and last several months. You can choose to get maintenance treatments every few months to keep those results lasting longer.
