dysport treatment in hartford county ct


Hartford | Avon CT

Dysport is an FDA approved injection for treating facial lines. Like Botox, Dysport is derived from botulinum toxin, and is used to treat so-called “dynamic” wrinkles, which occur as a result of facial movement, such as frowning or squinting. These wrinkles can be much more difficult to treat than “static” wrinkles, which occur when skin begins to sag with age. Common examples of dynamic wrinkles are crow’s feet and frown lines, also called “glabellar” lines. Dysport acts to block the nerve impulses that direct the muscles to contract, and therefore prevent the facial lines from forming.

Leading Injectable for Wrinkle Reduction, Providing You with a Youthful and Ageless Look.

Treatment with Dysport takes only about 10 to 20 minutes, and involves injections of tiny amounts of the special solution beneath your skin, directly into the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles to form. In most individuals, 3 to 5 injections of the product are required in each area to achieve satisfactory results. Like any injection, there may be some slight discomfort with Dysport treatment, and our Practioners may decide to use a topical anesthetic lotion or cream to numb the area prior to treatment.

Dysport offers a convenient means to enhance your beauty without undergoing a complete makeover. With a satisfaction rate of 95% among users after just two treatments per year, and 97% of users finding the results to be natural-looking, Dysport provides noticeable enhancements within as soon as 24 hours post-treatment, with full results usually visible within 2-3 days.

Dysport® functions by smoothing wrinkles that result from repetitive facial movements and muscle contractions. By administering one injection into each of the five points between and above the eyebrows, it temporarily inhibits muscle contractions responsible for frown lines. In simpler terms, Dysport® provides natural-looking results that closely resemble your own appearance.

Dysport Cosmetic Side Effects

Dysport is very well tolerated and side effects are minimal. In some patients, there may be slight bruising or swelling in the injection site, as well as some minor, temporary discomfort. In addition, a small number of patients may experience a headache following treatment, which can be treated with over-the-counter medications.

Additionally, a very small number of individuals may experience what is known as “ptosis,” or eyelid drooping. This condition will resolve within a few days to as many as four weeks following treatment. A very small percentage of patients may also experience flu-like symptoms or rash. These side effects should be reported to your doctor.

Dysport Cosmetic Results

The initial results of Dysport are visible very soon after treatment, with optimal results visible several days after the injections, once the product has fully affected the underlying muscles. In physicians who have used both Dysport and Botox regularly, Dysport has been noted in many instances to have better “spread”” – that is, to disperse more evenly in the treated area – and to give faster results. Some studies also report Dysport lasts 1 to 2 months longer than Botox, usually lasting from 5 to 8 months in most patients. Like any cosmetic product, your results will vary. Repeated courses of treatment prolong the results of Dysport treatment. You can ensure the best results possible by discussing your goals and expectations with ou pracationers prior to treatment with Dysport.


Frequently Asked Questions

Dysport works much like Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) in the treatment of wrinkles and static lines between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Like Botox, Dysport is recommended no more frequently than every 3 months, is contraindicated during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, for patients less than 65yrs old, or for anyone with, or at risk of, peripheral motor neuropathic diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or neuromuscular junction disorders (e.g., myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome).

Dysport is also contraindicated in patients with infection at the proposed site, an allergy to cow’s-milk protein, or a known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin product (Botox) or its components.

Unlike Botox, Dysport’s onset can begin 24hrs after injection, with a 90% response by day 7. The results typically last for 4 to 6 months, and peak in 1 month. The effects of Botox are typically seen between 2 and 10 days, with the full effect in 14 days, and the results typically lasting for 3 to 4 months, peaking at 2 months.

There is also a difference in the potency units, dosage and dilution of Dysport. They are not interchangeable with other preparations of botulinum toxin products and, therefore, their units cannot be compared to or converted into units of Botox.

Typically, Dysport is priced 10-15% cheaper than BOTOX cosmetics. Some clients report that their Dysport results look more natural.
