Safely and Effectively Eliminate Frown Lines
Facial rejuvenation can be quick, safe, and easy; fillers and injectables are excellent products used to achieve smoother, fresher, more youthful-looking skin. Dysport® is an FDA-approved product to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, which can age the face or cause someone to look tired or angry. Dr. Emilio M. Justo, Medical Director at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center , offers Dysport® injections to patients who are unhappy with visible frown lines. If you'd like to discuss Dysport® in more detail, please contact one of our Phoenix locations to speak with a friendly staff member.
Dysport® is a prescription botulinum toxin, similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, which safely and effectively smoothes moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. It is typically injected into the horizontal forehead lines, crow's feet, and vertical furrows between the eyebrows. Dysport® is injected into specific points between and over the eyebrows. It blocks nerve signals so that muscle activity ceases, preventing the contractions that cause wrinkles.
Dysport® is extremely effective at paralyzing the muscles, but it only targets specific ones so that you can maintain your unique expressions.
Dr. Justo will select the targeted facial muscles, and gently inject the Dysport® through a thin needle. The entire treatment takes about 10 to 20 minutes, and is virtually pain-free.
The results of Dysport® can last up to three or four months, and it's recommended that you return for repeat injections to maintain your results. Side effects are uncommon, but include irritation of the nose or throat, headache, and pain or infection at the injection site. If you experience problems swallowing, breathing, or speaking after treatment with Dysport®, contact our office immediately.
Dysport® is not recommended for all patients. We encourage you to check with Dr. Justo to determine whether you are a candidate for treatment with Dysport®.
Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® differ in how long the results last. Dysport® has less protein and fewer antigens in its formula, meaning that it will be broken down by the body slower than BOTOX® Cosmetic. Also, Dysport® diffuses more rapidly in the skin tissue than BOTOX® Cosmetic. Because of these two distinctions, Dysport® may last slightly longer than BOTOX® Cosmetic. But both products have their advantages and disadvantages, and our professional team will help you determine which is right for you and your needs.
