DYSPORT | New York City
Dysport (Botulinum Toxin A) is FDA approved to treat facial muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines. Although approved in the US in 2009, it’s been used in Europe since the 1990s. Therefore, it’s safe and effective. Similar to Botox, it treats dynamic wrinkles – those wrinkles and lines that are caused by muscle movement. Dysport is injected directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles and relaxes these muscles so that they can’t contract. This, in turn, relaxes the frown lines and wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repeated movements of facial muscles over time. These cannot be prevented by diet, hydration, skincare, or exercise. Genetics play a big role in the development of these wrinkles – some patients develop frown lines in their twenties, while others are perfect well into their fifties. Our doctors often recommend treatment with Dysport for those patients that want to prevent these lines in the first place.
You will begin to notice a difference within a week of your injection and the maximum results will be seen approximately 2 weeks after the treatment. The length of time Dysport “lasts” depends on the patient. Some of our patients require the treatment only twice per year, while others come in regularly every 3 months. Thirty minutes before your injection, your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic to make the procedure virtually painless.
