Dysport™ Treatment New York City

Are you looking for Dysport near Times Square, NY? This simple, effective, non-surgical treatment works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead. This reduces and smooths away frown-lines and other facial wrinkles.

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.

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 Treatment

The doctor will identify your trouble areas. After, 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, anesthetics 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.

Right after the procedure, you will immediately notice that you are unable to move the treated muscles. Over the next few days, you will feel your muscles begin to relax gradually. You will be mildly aware that you are now unable to contract your frown muscles. Blinking will remain normal and you will still be able to raise your eyebrows, so you will not look unnaturally frozen. On the brighter side, the inability to frown will give you a more youthful and cheerful appearance, free from wrinkles and frown lines.

How Often Can I Get Injections of Dysport?

You should wait at least 90 days between Dysport™ treatments. The safety of Dysport™ has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments. Clinical studies demonstrated continued efficacy with up to four repeated treatments.

What Are Possible Side Effects When I Have Dysport?

Side effects associated with Dysport™ injections are mild to moderate, and include discomfort or pain at the injection site, blurred vision, or drooping eyelids. These reactions are temporary, and pain can be diminished by applying ice to the area. You should not use Dysport™ if you are allergic to botulinum toxin products such as Dysport™, Myobloc® or Botox® Cosmetic, or if you have had side effects in the past.
