Neuromodulator injections are one of the most requested cosmetic treatments, including Dysport® injections. Like Botox®, Dysport uses a neurotoxin to impact muscle movements, creating beautiful aesthetic results. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer Dysport injections for frown lines treatment and other cosmetic benefits at our clinics in the greater Washington, D.C., metro area.
Dysport injections use a botulinum toxin A strain to impact facial muscle contractions and movement. This neurotoxin targets the nerves that communicate to the muscle, blocking nerve signals. Dysport injections are FDA approved for the treatment of glabellar lines (11s) between the eyebrows. The relaxing effect on the brow muscles smooth frown lines – Dysport is also used for other off-label cosmetic treatments that involve dynamic lines and wrinkles.
Frown Lines Treatment
Dysport injections are a quick solution for frown lines and other wrinkles. The treatment can be performed in about 15 minutes with little to no discomfort. The injections are carefully placed to target the exact muscles causing the dynamic lines. There is no need for downtime or recovery after the treatment – you can return to your normal activities after your treatment.
The effects of Dysport take a few days to appear. For frown lines treatment, the “11s” will become less pronounced as the neurotoxin begins to block the nerve signals. Most patients will see the final results within a week and enjoy the smoothing of wrinkles for 3-4 months before the effects wear off. There are very few side effects for most patients. Bruising or swelling at the injection sites are the most common side effects, which quickly disappear in the days after the injections. Repeated treatments throughout the year can be used to maintain the desired appearance.
Dysport offers similar cosmetic benefits as Botox, Jeuveau® and Xeomin® treatments. Like most cosmetic injectables, some patients have better results with different brands.
