Dysport® is a popular injectable procedure that can diminish signs of crow’s feet, brow furrows, and other concerns. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a popular procedure that can help many individuals rejuvenate signs of age along the face without the need for major surgery. Dr. Eric Okamoto, our experienced plastic surgeon, has helped both women and men renew and revitalize their appearance with Dysport®, a treatment that can yield very natural-looking results and can often be performed over the course of an average lunch hour.
Dysport® is an injectable solution that serves as a temporary muscle paralyzer used to quiet muscles that create facial lines, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. The most common areas targeted on the face are the frown lines between the eyes, the crow’s feet lines to the sides of the eyes, and the forehead furrows. When appropriately injected by an experienced and qualified professional, Dysport® can effectively help many individuals enhance their appearance.
In addition to the minimally invasive nature of Dysport® injections, other potential benefits include the effectiveness of the results and the relative quickness of the procedure. These treatments typically take only about 15 minutes or less to perform, depending on the size and number of the target areas. Plus, most patients require little to no downtime, and often resume normal daily routines immediately.
While there will likely be some mild redness and swelling present after the injections, these effects should fade quickly. Occasionally, small bruises can occur that might last for a few days. Most patients are able to resume normal daily routines immediately after their treatment. The effects of Dysport® injections should become apparent within a few days following the treatment, and they should be even more visible over the ensuing weeks.
Dysport® recipients must understand that some facial lines will persist after an injection. These are lines that are deeply etched into the skin and will manifest themselves independent of the muscle activity underneath. Dr. Okamoto can talk more about what can be expected from this treatment during the initial consultation and he will be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
