Dysport is a wonderful alternative for those who may never have had facial injections and want to give it a try. Dysport is a neurotoxin that works by blocking the communication between nerve and muscle. Normally, the nerve “speaks” to the muscle and tells it to contract. This communication is present and critical for the movement of all muscles in the body. The upper face is unique in that movement is not vital for function. We can use this principle to weaken the muscles of the upper face in order to decrease wrinkles without affecting function.
The experienced physician injector can weaken these muscles of the upper face without changing the shape of the patient’s brow or completely eradicating their facial expression. After treatment, patients are still able to contract the untreated facial muscles and even the treated ones, allowing a full range of facial expressions like smiling, frowning, winking, and raising the brow. There is no need for anyone to look “frozen.” Dysport is injected into the muscle directly and relaxes them slightly to help smooth out the wrinkles in these areas. Dysport can also be injected in fewer areas than Botox.
How long does Dysport last?
Dysport can last up to four months and is recommended for those who have wrinkles between their brows.
We love this new option for facial injections and the treatment of deep to moderate lines and wrinkles. Dysport is effective but more natural-looking than some other treatments, and we recommend it to our clients all the time at Cole Aesthetic Center.
