Dysport reduces the appearance of lines in the glabella or between the brows. These are the lines that appear as you age between the brows and across the forehead. Glabella lines become more evident when you scowl or squint. Over time, glabella lines may become more visible during moments of relaxation.
Dysport is intended to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines. At Polin Dental, our doctors are experienced in administering Dysport and can help you determine if this solution is suitable for your type of wrinkles and your cosmetic goals.
Target Areas for Dysport
Dysport focuses on treating glabellar lines. These vertical wrinkles most commonly appear in early adulthood between the brows. They may become more visible as you age because of decreased suppleness. They become more evident when you squint, giving you a frowning or annoyed appearance.
Dysport is sometimes used in adults and children who have significant muscle stiffness in their limbs. Dysport is FDA-approved for treating lower limb spasticity in children, spasticity in adults, and cervical dystonia, which affects the mobility of the neck and head.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport is a type of injection known as a neuromodulator. Botox and Xeomin are two other injections included in this category. They all use a botulinum toxin, although they target various parts of your face.
Dysport and other neuromodulators minimize the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing and restricting muscle action surrounding the injection site.
To administer Dysport, our doctor injects a small amount of the chemical into your muscle. The skin above them smooths out as your muscles relax, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
It should be noted that these effects are just transient. Reduced movement is intended to reduce the formation or deepening of wrinkles caused by repetitive movement over time, as well as genetics and age.
The Benefits of Dysport
- Injections are quick (a session takes 10 to 20 minutes) and require little downtime, making them easy to incorporate into your schedule.
- Dysport may be more effective than other injectable neurotoxins for some people.
- Dysport may produce a more natural appearance than other neuromodulators.
- It's a temporary remedy, so if you don't like the results, you're not stuck with them; they'll fade over time.
Is Dysport Safe?
Dysport is FDA-approved and deemed safe when administered by a skilled professional. Bruising is possible with any injection. You can reduce your risk by avoiding non-medically necessary blood thinners for a week before surgery. Alcohol, fish oil and vitamin E supplements, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines such as aspirin and Advil are examples. You can take ibuprofen or acetaminophen if you get a headache after the shot.
