Looking great with Dysport treatment in Westlake, OH

Everyone knows Botox as the secret to some of Hollywood’s smoothest faces. Yet Botox is not the only neuromodulator available for the correction n of dynamic wrinkles. In 2009, the FDA approved Dysport for treatment of forehead wrinkles and frown lines. Since that time, the providers at Associates in Dermatology (Westlake, Middleburg Heights,  and Lorain, OH) have used the product hundreds of times, helping male and female patients look their best.

What is Dysport?

Each time you make a facial expression, muscles beneath the skin contract due to the release of a chemical from nerve cells. When that animation is repeated many times, skin loses its ability to recover and stays creased. Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin that interrupts this chemical process. As muscles stay in a relaxed posture, lines and wrinkles in the skin have the chance to smooth out.

Dysport differs from Botox in the potency of trace proteins and diffusion into skin tissues. Basically, an improvement from Dysport may be evident sooner, but Botox may last a bit longer. Fortunately, at Associates in Dermatology, you don’t have to choose. Our injectors are experienced in combination protocols, using the most appropriate product in the right dosage, for the area of injection.

How Dysport reduces wrinkles in Westlake, OH

Dysport injections are performed with a fine needle into exact points on the face where dynamic wrinkles are triggered:

  • Glabellar lines – vertical furrows between eyebrows
  • Frown lines across the forehead
  • Dysport for crow’s feet is placed at outer corners of the eyes
  • Bunny lines at the bridge of the nose
  • Dysport lips treatment reduces periorbital lines (“smoker’s lip lines”) around the mouth
  • Marionette lines
  • Dimpling on the chin
  • Neck banding

Benefits of Dysport

Neuromodulator treatment requires no anesthetic. It typically takes a half-hour or less, and there is essentially no downtime. Dysport side effects are generally temporary and mild but may include tenderness at injection sites, numbness, or headache. A smoother, younger-looking complexion can be maintained with periodic re-treatment. As muscles soften, less product and fewer injections are needed. Dysport can be part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenation plan that includes soft tissue fillers, microneedling, chemical peels, or laser therapies.
