Neuromodulator injections are the most-used cosmetic treatment performed by plastic surgeons. While Botox® was the first to be FDA-approved for cosmetic use, other variations of botulinum toxin type A have been created that provide similar results. Dysport® is also a neuromodulator that is FDA-approved to treat facial wrinkles. At pēkomd cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center, we offer Dysport injections for wrinkle treatment at our clinic in Toledo, OH
Neuromodulators are effective for facial wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions. Certain facial expressions cause creases in the skin as the muscles move, such as the 11s between your eyebrows (frown lines) and the smile lines around the eyes (crow’s feet). As your skin ages and loses its elasticity, dynamic lines and wrinkles can stay etched in the skin. Neuromodulators, like Dysport, can relax the muscles that cause these facial wrinkles, giving you a more youthful and pleasant appearance.
Facial Wrinkle Treatment
Whether you have frown, worry or smile lines, Dysport injections may be the solution to achieving a more youthful look. Dysport treatment is similar to Botox – the injections target the desired muscles to erase certain lines or wrinkles. The treatment only takes about 15-20 minutes, and you will not need any downtime after your procedure. Dysport effects take a few days to appear, and they can last 3-4 months before you will need to repeat the injections to maintain results.
Dysport has similar effects to all the other neuromodulators like Botox, Jeuveau® and Xeomin®. For some patients, Dysport works better than Botox or requires smaller dosages. Our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Peter Koltz, can discuss the differences between the neuromodulator products to determine the best treatment for your needs. Dysport may be an option if you have noticed that Botox injections are no longer achieving the same results due to tolerance changes.
If you want to eliminate frown lines or other dynamic facial wrinkles, Dysport injections can be non-invasive option.
