Dysport is a popular injectable for treating facial wrinkles. In Chicago, Dysport injections are frequently performed by the highly trained aestheticians at Enfuse Medical Spa & Hair Restoration. This quick, non-surgical procedure has helped countless patients restore a more relaxed, youthful facial appearance.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator that contains a type of botulinum toxin (abobotulinumtoxin A) that relaxes muscles to release wrinkles and creases. Like Botox, Dysport can be injected into an overactive muscle to decrease its activity.
Overactive facial muscles can result in deep lines and wrinkles over time. When repetitive muscle movements are the reason for facial creases, limiting the muscle’s activity can provide a softening and smoothing effect.
Dysport is most often used to treat frown lines, or glabellar lines. These are the creases that form between the eyebrows and can cause patients to look upset or angry.
Am I a Candidate for Dysport?
Candidates for Dysport can be men or women who want to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. Younger patients with mild wrinkles are often better candidates for alternative cosmetic treatments. Dysport is not recommended for patients over the age of 65 and/or patients with advanced signs of aging.
It is important that candidates are in good general health and have realistic expectations for their results. Dysport is not a permanent solution for facial wrinkles but instead provides temporary improvements in the appearance of creases and lines that can be maintained with regular treatment sessions.
Dysport injections are performed on-site at our state-of-the-art facility in Chicago. The total treatment time will depend on your specific anatomy and treatment goals, but most Dysport procedures take less than 30 minutes.
Dysport Recovery and Results
Dysport is a non-invasive procedure that involves minimal recovery time. Patients should wait at least two hours after Dysport injections to exercise but can return to work and other light activities immediately.
Patients can see results as soon as a few days after Dysport injections. Final results are often visible within a week of treatment. For many patients, this is a distinct advantage of Dysport over Botox, which can take up to two weeks to provide complete results.
Over the following two to three months, the effects of Dysport will dissipate. A regular retreatment schedule, as advised by our expert aestheticians, will prevent the muscles from reactivating and causing the treated lines or wrinkles to return.
How Much Does Dysport Cost?
The cost of Dysport injections varies based on the number of injections and the dosage needed to resolve your concerns. Pricing information will be provided at your consultation once your treatment plan has been developed.
