What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is another form of Botulinum Toxin Type A that is offered by Shereen Timani, M.D., at Johns Creek Dermatology. It is similar to other injectable facial fillers and movement inhibitors as it is injected into specific areas of the face. The most common target areas are the forehead, frown lines and around the eyes. It is formulated to relax the facial muscles after injection, resulting in softened looking existing wrinkles. It also is intended to prevent the formation of new wrinkles in the treated areas.
How Does it Work?
When you contact your facial muscles to make expressions such as smiling or frowning, wrinkles and lines around your eyes, called crow’s feet; mouth, and forehead, are created. Dysport® combats wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses that cause facial muscle contractions, similar to other botulinum toxin treatments. As the muscles relax, the response is smoother looking skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It also has alternative applications and can be used to treat Hyperhidrosis, a disease characterized by excessive underarm sweating.
When Will I See Results From Dysport®?
You will begin to notice a relaxation in the facial muscles within a few days. Results for under arm treatment are also noticeable within a few days. It typically takes one week to experience the full effects.
How Long Does it Last?
The procedure takes about fifteen minutes. Depending on the strength of your muscles, the depth of the wrinkles, and other factors results typically last up to six months. In some cases, results may endure for up to one year.
What is the Recovery Time for a Dysport® Treatment?
There is little to no downtime with Dysport® treatments. The most common side effects are temporary in nature and may include a headache, nose and throat irritations and sinus inflammation, eyelid swelling, nausea, and upper respiratory tract infection. If you have any serious side effects, contact Dr. Timani at Johns Creek Dermatology immediately.
