Dysport™ Treatment New York City
Are you looking for a non-surgical solution to fine lines and other facial wrinkles? Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York offers Dysport in NYC, right in the heart of Times Square. This simple, effective treatment works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, smoothing away facial wrinkles, and reducing the signs of aging.
What is Dysport?
Prescription Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is an injection to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport is one of the newest wrinkle treatments that offers a simple and effective nonsurgical approach on how to eliminate wrinkles. It is synthesized from the protein extracted from clostridium botulinum and was initially used to treat a variety of neuromuscular and motor disorders that involve involuntary muscular spasms. Nowadays, Dysport has made a name for itself in cosmetic surgery and wrinkle treatment.
It was developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990s, to successfully treat a number of neurological and ophthalmic conditions. In 2009, it was approved by the FDA for improving the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines. Dysport is supported by more than a decade of clinical experience, and thousands of Dysport treatments have been safely and effectively performed for a variety of conditions.
Am I a Good Candidate?
As we age our skin begins to lose its tightness and elasticity. Due to this, we begin to notice the common signs of aging: wrinkles, lines, and folds. Dysport can be used to temporarily treat the appearance of these markers of age. Good candidates for Dysport in NYC experience folds, creases, and wrinkles around their forehead, eyes, and mouth. Most men and women over the age of 40 make ideal candidates for this treatment. It is important to be realistic about your expectations when choosing Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport injections.
How Does Dysport Work?
Normal muscle activities of the face such as laughing, frowning, or even squinting at the sun require the facial muscles to contract. These contractions cause creases in the skin to form. As you get older, these lines become deeper until they become indelibly etched on your face.
Dysport works by relaxing the underlying muscles on the forehead so that it becomes temporarily immobilized. This ultimately reduces and smooths away fine lines, frown lines, and deeper wrinkles in that area. With just one injection into each of the 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles. Ultimately this reduces muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.

Dysport Injection Procedure
When you visit our office to be treated with Dysport in NYC, the doctor will identify your trouble areas. Afterward, the doctor will inject tiny amounts of Dysport directly into the underlying facial muscles of the frown lines. Depending on the extent of the treatment area, the number of injections will vary from patient to patient. The use of anesthetics is generally not necessary. If the patient does not wish to feel any discomfort during the procedure, an anesthetic is an option. Treatment using Dysport may take around 10 to 20 minutes to complete. After, the patient can go right back to their normal daily activities.

Dysport vs Botox: What’s The Difference?
Both Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are neuromodulators, and are both botulinum toxin injections. While primarily used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, both injectables can be used to treat muscle spasms and health conditions.
While Botox results can take between a week and month to start taking effect, Dysport results become noticeable after just a few days. However, Botox lasts longer than Dysport on average. Botox results last upwards of six months versus Dysports three to four months.
Botox and Dysport are similar products with similar results, and the choice between the two is purely personal.
