Are Dysport Injections Right for Me?
A common question among people who are looking to improve their appearance is whether FDA-approved Dysport injections are right for them. For those who are interested in making their fine lines and wrinkles disappear and want a natural look, Dysport injections may be a good solution.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a cosmetic injectable that is used to treat wrinkles formed from making repetitive facial expressions. Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines can be treated using Dysport.
The active ingredient in Dysport is botulinum toxin type A, and although it is a toxic ingredient, it is safe to inject into the skin when used in small doses. Dysport also contains two supporting agents: human albumin and milk protein.
When Dysport is injected into the targeted areas, it temporarily relaxes the muscles, which stops the facial muscles from contracting. This makes skin appear younger and temporarily stops new wrinkles from forming.
Should You Get Dysport Injections?
While wrinkles may not bother some people, others may be self-conscious about the way fine lines alter their appearance. Sometimes, these folds in the skin will make them look sad or angry, and the constant reminder they are no longer young may take a toll on their confidence.
Dysport injections are intended for use in patients who are below age 65 with moderate to severe forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other facial folds. If there are noticeable fine lines or folds in your skin, you should consider getting Dysport injections.
One of the main benefits of Dysport is that the results look natural, as it is less concentrated and has a lower protein content than its popular counterpart, Botox. You will see results two to three days after getting a Dysport injection, whereas with Botox, results take seven to ten days.
What to Expect
When you meet with Dr. Bapna to talk about receiving Dysport injections, he will ask you a series of questions about your medical history. Make sure you inform him about all the medications you take. If you have any medical conditions, you should let Dr. Bapna know about them.
Dysport is a minimally invasive procedure and usually takes less than thirty minutes to administer. During the treatment, Dr. Bapna will use an ultrafine needle to inject the appropriate amount of Dysport into the targeted areas.
You may experience some mild side effects after your Dysport treatment, such as pain, redness, and bruising at the injection site. However, these minor side effects usually subside shortly after your treatment.
There is no downtime with Dysport, and you can return to your regular activities immediately after the treatment. After two to three days, you will see results from your Dysport injection, and results can last up to four months.
