What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable treatment that is used to diminish the appearance of frown lines, also known as glabellar lines. The main ingredient in Dysport® is botulinum toxin, similar to Botox®. Unlike Botox®, Dysport® is specifically designed for the treatment of frown lines. It also contains different secondary ingredients, which may make it an ideal treatment for patients who aren't able to achieve their desired results with Botox®. The Dysport® formula relaxes muscles in the forehead, preventing them from contracting and forming wrinkles. As a result, patients can enjoy a more relaxed, youthful appearance. As an added benefit, Dysport® can prevent frown lines from worsening while it is active.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every Dysport® procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables like your current condition and unique treatment goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit us in-office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer financing to help make our treatments more affordable.
What is the Dysport® Treatment Like?
The Dysport® treatment is quite tolerable, but we often apply a topical anesthetic to the skin before administering injections. During the injection process, we will make multiple injections into and around the area between the eyes. The exact number of injections will depend on your specific treatment plan. The injection process takes only a few minutes, which means that the full Dysport® treatment can be performed in under 30 minutes.
What is Recovery Like Following Dysport®?
There is no downtime after the Dysport® treatment, but you may notice some minor swelling or redness around the treatment areas. These effects typically fade within a day or two. Still, you should be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Dysport®?
The results from Dysport® will gradually become visible as botulinum toxin takes effect in the body. You can expect to notice the full results of treatment within a few days. Dysport® produces results that last for about three to four months, which can be easily prolonged with maintenance treatments.
