Dysport has become one of the top cosmetic treatments today, because it is minimally invasive and offers excellent results. If you have heard about this procedure, or even have a friend that swears by the injections, you might be wondering if Dysport is the right cosmetic treatment for you. To help you make your decision, Windward Vein has a few basic facts about this go-to, anti-aging treatment.
Do You Want to Turn Back the Clock?
Dysport is primarily known as an anti-aging procedure when used in the cosmetic realm, which means this treatment is designed to reverse wrinkles and other telltale signs of the aging process. If you are primarily looking for a non-surgical method to turn back the clock on your appearance, Dysport might be the right choice. However, you need to talk to an experienced Dysport provider to determine whether this injectable treatment will give you the results you are looking for.
Where are Your Wrinkles?
Dysport works by relaxing facial muscles that lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. That means this medication is specifically designed to reduce “dynamic wrinkles,” the lines that are formed when certain facial expressions are made. This usually pertains to lines and wrinkles around the forehead, between the eyebrows and in the outer corners of the eyes. Wrinkles that form in the lower areas of the face, around the nose and mouth, are not typically effectively treated by this procedure.
Are You Afraid of Needles?
Dysport is injected by a very fine needle, which most patients admit is not very painful. However, patients that are afraid of needles may not find that Dysport is the right treatment option for them. If you are looking for a non-surgical method of anti-aging, consider how well you can handle infections. If you are very afraid or unsure if you can handle Dysport injections in a specific treatment area, talk to your provider about topical anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable.
Can You Commit to Regular Treatments?
Results of Dysport are not permanent. Most patients find the improvement to their facial wrinkles lasts about 3-4 months. At that time, another Dysport treatment will need to be scheduled in order to maintain the positive results. Before beginning your Dysport regimen, make sure you are ready to commit to a regular treatment schedule if you want to ensure those results are long-lasting. Some patients do find that after a period of time, they can begin to go a bit longer between injections without sacrificing their results.
Are You Ready for a Fast Treatment and Fast Results?
Dysport injections take just a few minutes to complete in most cases. Patients are able to return to their regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Aside from some possible mild bruising and swelling around the injection sites, there are no side effects after treatment that will belie you just had a cosmetic treatment done. Results of Dysport will be apparent right away and will continue to improve in the days following treatment.
