Dysport®

Dysport® is most often used to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the areas of the face.

Unbeknownst to most people, the signs of aging have actually been accumulating on your face since you were just a baby. From the time you started making facial expressions, such as smiling, frowning, and squinting, grooves have been forming under the surface of the skin. This inevitably leads to fine lines, creases, and wrinkles. Dysport® can be used to transform all areas of the face, and Skin MD master injectors are here to help slow down the aging process. If you’re in your late 20s or early 30s and just beginning to see the very first signs of visible wrinkles and lines when your face is at rest, then there is no better time to start your age-prevention program with Skin MD.

How do neuromodulators work?

The special compound found in Dysport® works by disrupting the nerve signaling processes that cause muscle movement. Unlike dermal fillers that enhance facial volume, neurotoxins work by paralyzing your muscles and preventing them from causing added strain to your skin. The paralysis process is safe but may result in some mild side effects.

What areas can Dysport® treat?

Wrinkles: Dysport® is most often used to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the areas of the face.

Forehead Lines (Glabellar Lines): These horizontal creases are some of the first and most common wrinkles that people tend to get. Dysport® can reduce the appearance of these dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles.

Crow’s Feet or Laugh Lines: As you enter your late 20s or early 30s, these unsightly lines begin to appear in the outer corners of your eyes.

Bunny Lines: When you scrunch your nose, bunny lines are the fine lines that appear. If you find bunny lines bothersome, Dysport® can assist in reducing and smooth out these tiny creases.

Eyebrows: Dysport® is an excellent solution for those with “hooded” eyelids or “deep-set” eyes. Properly placed injections just above the brow will relax wrinkles, lift your lids and give you a well-rested look.  

Perioral Lines: As we age, the upper lip loses volume.  Adding a small amount of Dysport® just above your upper lip can go a long way in giving lips a fuller look. This injection can offer a more youthful, happier and more relaxed shape to the mouth. Commonly known as the Flip Lip treatment, ask your Skin MD provider if it is right for you.

Downturned Mouth: As we age, the corners of your mouth get pulled down by gravity. We can help turn that frown upside down and gently raise the corners of your mouth by relaxing the underlying muscles.

Jawline: Over time your jawline can become less and less defined. Dysport can help by shrinking the masseter muscle along your jawline and narrowing the appearance of your jawline, giving a more defined and sculpted look.

Clenching or Grinding Teeth: If you suffer facial pain from jaw tension, Dysport® can deliver a targeted treatment to relax the masseter and other muscles that control your jaw.

“Orange Peel” or Pebbly Chin: If you are looking to correct a dimply chin, Dysport® can help by reducing laxity and smoothing out the orange peel appearance.

Nefertiti Lift (Neck Bands): Named after the Egyptian queen with a famously lovely jawline, a Nefertiti Lift is a non-invasive procedure wherein tiny amounts of Dysport® (or BOTOX® Cosmetic) is injected into the muscles in your neck – specifically the ones that create a downward pull on your jawline. When your neck bands are no longer pulling your features down, the muscles on the upper face get a sort of mini-lift.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweat): Neurotoxin treatments of either Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic can reduce overactive sweat glands in your underarms, hands and feet by blocking the nerves responsible. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat in the specific area where it’s been injected. Kind of magical, really!

FAQS

What does an injectable treatment involve?

Your treatment will be performed by either Dr. Flashner or one of our highly qualified Registered Nurse injectors. Regardless of which master injector of our medical staff performs your treatment, you can be confident that Dr. Flashner oversees every patient’s chart.

Pre-injection, your skin will be cleansed, and an ice pack applied to numb the area where the injections will be given.

You will be injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. The neurotoxins in the injectable go to work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles so that the injected muscle cannot contract, which makes the wrinkles relax and soften.

The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the specific area being treated and whether you are being treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®. The injections usually take about 10 to 15 minutes. Most patients find the treatment to be virtually pain-free and report that it feels like a pinch.

Post-injection, there is little to no downtime. Some people do experience bruising or other minor local side effects, but you should be able to resume your normal daily activities right after your procedure.

What results can I expect from my neurotoxin?

For most patients, the results of your treatment will gradually take effect over the next few days following the injections, with the final result achieved within two weeks post-treatment. However, you may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines.

For most patients, the results of your treatment will gradually take effect over the next few days following the injections, with the final result achieved within two weeks post-treatment. However, you may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines.

Our patients get excellent results and visible smoothing for lines around the eyes, mouth, forehead, and between the brows. At your Skin MD consultation, we will give you honest feedback on what we believe BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® can do for your wrinkles and to ensure proper expectations are set.

The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® should last anywhere from three to six months. Over time, the muscle action gradually returns, and the lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear; however, if you continue on a consistent treatment schedule, the lines and wrinkles often appear less and less severe because the muscles are being trained to relax.

Most importantly, you will still look like yourself! Only now, you will not have those very noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet. Your Skin MD medical staff receives advanced training and is dedicated to providing natural appearing results.

What is the key ingredient and is it safe?

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, called botulinum toxin. It is used medically in several ways:

  • to treat certain muscular disorders
  • to treat excessive sweating
  • to treat migraines
  • to treat some bladder and bowel disorders
  • to cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles

Clostridium Botulinum is an organism found in the natural environment where it is mostly inactive and non-toxic. The Botulinum toxin can be safely injected in extremely small concentrations and works by preventing signals from the nerve cells from reaching muscles. This effectively leaves the muscles without instructions to contract and therefore temporarily paralyzes them.

For your BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injection, the Botulinum toxin powder has been diluted in saline (sodium chloride). It will be injected directly into neuromuscular tissue where it disrupts the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine that causes muscle cells to contract or shorten. By preventing the release of acetylcholine, botulinum toxin prevents abnormal muscle contraction allowing the muscles to become less stiff and thus relaxing your facial wrinkles and lines.

What should I be prepared to discuss in my consultation?

Please be prepared to tell us about any medical conditions, including any prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are taking. It’s important to let us know if you have been treated with a botulinum toxin product in the last four months and whether you experienced any allergies or side effects. We will also ask you if you have had surgery on your face or plan to do so if you have weakness in your forehead muscles, have trouble raising your eyebrows, or have drooping eyelids. We must know if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, or if you are nursing or plan to nurse.

In the consultation, we welcome you to ask any questions you have about the treatment process! We are happy to share more information with you about our medical expertise, our experience in the field of aesthetic medicine, and, most definitely, the incredible before-and-after pictures of other patients just like you that have received BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®.
