At ACQUA Medspa, our specialists are proud to offer Dysport in Webster, TX. Dysport® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can erase fine lines and wrinkles that appear on the forehead, between the eyes (frown lines), and on the side of the eyes when you smile (crows feet). It is a simple, non-surgical anti-aging treatment that helps our Acqua patients look younger, refreshed, natural, and more beautiful.
HOW DOES DYSPORT WORK?
Like Botox, Dysport is a “neuromodulator” made of Botulinum toxin. With normal facial expressions such as frowning and smiling, wrinkles eventually develop making you appear older or more tired than you actually are. A few simple injections is all it takes for Dysport® to block the nerve signals to the muscles that cause the wrinkles to appear. This results in a temporary reduction in muscle activity, preventing lines and wrinkles from forming when you make certain facial expressions.
WHAT ARE THE INJECTION SITES FOR DYSPORT?
Dysport is most commonly injected at a few points between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and on the side of the eyes.
The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to maintain normal facial expressions.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DYSPORT?
Dysport is a simple, highly effective way to smooth wrinkles and erase fine lines. The is no downtime, the results look natural, the risks are minimal…and patients LOVE it!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DYSPORT AND BOTOX?
Dysport® and Botox are very similar products and are in the same category of medications called neuromodulators. Both contain Botulinum toxin A and work in a similar manner to relax the muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles. Dysport was approved for use in the U.S. in 2009, while Botox has been around much longer and is more widely-known. Many patients and injectors find that results can be seen 1 to 2 days EARLIER with Dysport than with Botox. Another difference is that the dosage or number of units used will be different. Also, Dysport tends to spread more allowing it treat more area with fewer injections. Unless you have a specific preference, we will help you determine which product is best suited to your aesthetic goals.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS OF DYSPORT?
Side effects of Dysport® are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects are headaches, temporary redness, or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. In rare cases, slight drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of expression may occur temporarily. The risks of complication can be reduced by choosing a qualified and experienced injector like ours at ACQUA.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU HAVE DYSPORT TREATMENTS?
It is recommended to have treatments every 3 to 4 months to maintain optimal results. Over time, you may require fewer units to achieve the same results.
