What is Dysport® injections treatment?
Dysport®, formerly known as Reloxin, is an FDA-approved wrinkle treatment for frown lines between the eyebrows. It contains the same active ingredients as BOTOX® and XEOMIN®, and is used to create a more natural, youthful appearance that doesn’t hinder the movement of facial muscles. According to a clinical trial, many people showed an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles within a few days of Dysport® injection treatment.
Why are Dysport® injections used?
Dysport® injections are used to reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
You should not use Dysport® treatment if:
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients in Dysport®
- You have deep facial scars
- You have oily skin
- You have weak muscles between the eyebrows
There are multiple other reasons that your doctor may not recommend Dysport® treatment for you. Speak with an experienced dermatologist at Hollywood Dermatology before undergoing treatment to determine if dysport injections is right for you.
What does Dysport® treatment involve?
During the short, in-office treatment, a very small needle is inserted into the targeted area of the skin. The injection itself may cause a small amount of discomfort but, usually, lasts only a moment. If you are very sensitive, speak with your doctor about possible cream or ice to be applied beforehand to help numb the area.
The Dysport® solution is injected into five points between and above the eyebrows, temporarily preventing muscle contractions in the area. The rest of the face should feel normal and move without difficulty. Within about three days following your treatment, you should see noticeable results in the look of your frown lines. For most patients, results last for up to four months. Speak with your Hollywood Dermatology doctor to determine the best follow-up treatment plan for you.
How many treatments do I need?
Most patients who undergo Dysport® treatment notice an improvement in the appearance of forehead wrinkles within one week of their first treatment. Those who undergo multiple treatments usually see results that last over a year. However, every person’s skin is different and may have varied results. Therefore, it is best to speak with one of our knowledgeable dermatologists at Hollywood Dermatology to learn more about what to expect for your particular skin and condition.
