Smoothen Wrinkles And Deep Lines Away

Do you feel self-conscious about lines and wrinkles in your face that persist even when you feel neutral? Over time laugh lines, frown lines, and crow's feet become etched in the skin and remain regardless of how you feel. For a long time, BOTOX was the singular non-surgical way to correct these deep lines and wrinkles, but today there exists a range of other effective muscle relaxers. One popular alternative to BOTOX is Dysport.

What is Dysport?

Dysport, like BOTOX, is a neuromodulator whose active ingredient is botulinum toxin type A. Neuromodulators block signals from nerve cells that tell muscles to contract. As a result, the muscles remain in a temporary state of relaxation. Dysport has a slightly different composition from BOTOX, and its unique formula allows it to spread more easily once injected. Dysport takes effect faster than BOTOX and can impact a broader area.  This makes Dysport ideal for treating wrinkles in the forehead and other large areas of the face.

What Happens During A Dysport Session?

Before any action is taken, an in-depth consultation with Zenn Plastic Surgery Master Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, is necessary. During this one-on-one time, Tara will listen carefully as you describe your aesthetic goals and insecurities. She will examine your face and medical history, and then craft a tailored treatment plan suited to your lifestyle and aesthetic concerns. 

During the actual Dypsort appointment, Tara will apply a topical anesthetic and then, with a very thin syringe, will inject a precise amount of Dysport into the target muscle. Tara will then gently massage the Dysport into the area to ensure its even distribution. Some patients require multiple injections, while others only need one.

Dysport For Facial Contouring

Like BOTOX, Dysport can also be strategically used to contour certain areas of the chin, neck, and jawline. For example, Tara can apply Dysport to certain muscles beneath the chin to create a more defined jawline and minimize the appearance of a double chin. She can also slim the shape of the jawline by selectively relaxing the masseter muscles in the jaw, resulting in a more feminine, elegant, and tapered look.

Is Downtime Required For Dysport Treatments?

A huge benefit of Dysport and other non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments is that there is no lengthy recovery time needed. Patients can have Dysport injections over their lunch breaks and return to work right after. Some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site is common and should go away within a day or two. There are some considerations patients should be aware of in the 1-2 days following their treatment to guarantee optimal results. Environments with excessive heat should be avoided, such as saunas, jacuzzis, tanning beds, and steam rooms. Patients should also avoid putting pressure on their faces near the treatment area.
