DYSPORT

Aging is tough and seeing those lines and wrinkles on your forehead and between our eyes get a little deeper each day is frustrating. If you’re missing that young, smooth look you once had, Dysport may be able to diminish lines and restore your youthful appearance.

With over 15 years of experience and proven results performing cosmetic injections, Dr. Kay has the practice and knowledge to give you confidence in any wrinkle relaxer injection, whether it be Dysport or another toxin. Our high patient satisfaction and substantial results are reflected in our high reviews and real patient outcomes, illustrating why we are one of the top choices for Dysport injections in the Los Angeles Area.

What is Dysport?

Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a type of botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox and Xeomin. Like its competitors, Dysport is an injectable treatment for temporary improvement of wrinkles and crinkles in the face by the prevention of muscle contraction. Specifically, Dysport targets the lines between the eyebrows to smooth frown lines, while avoiding that “frozen” look and allowing the face to remain expressive. Unlike the other toxins, Dysport delivers faster results on average.

Dysport treatment options

Like most muscle-relaxing toxins, Dysport can be used for a number of different areas and treatments.

Frown lines:

Frown lines, or glabellar lines, are the fine lines between your eyebrows caused from furrowing of the brows. Dysport works to soften these lines, helping you feel and look younger, while preserving that natural appearance.

Crow’s feet:

Crow’s feet are the fine lines on the outside corners of your eyes caused by the repetition of smiling, laughing, and squinting. Dysport smooths these lines while allowing your face to remain expressive and natural, restoring your youth.

Forehead lines:

As we age, the constant raising of our brows causes wrinkles and lines to form on our foreheads, leaving us feeling old every time we look in the mirror. Dysport softens and diminishes those frustrating lines, returning that youthful confidence.

Excessive sweating:

Like Botox, Dysport can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, by relaxing muscles of the underarms, palms of the hands, or the soles of your feet.

Patient consultation 

Dr. Kay consults with each patient individually, assessing their physical features, personal situation, and areas of concern, to determine if Dysport is right for you. You must provide us with your full medical history during this consultation as well.  If it is decided that you are well-suited, you will be given a personalized treatment plan, which may include other toxins and fillers that will optimize the results.

Procedure

The administration of Dysport is a quick and minimally painful procedure. The actual injection lasts about 10 minutes with no downtime, so you can complete your consultation and injection in the same day! Before beginning the injection, you will have photos taken in order to help you track your results and identify areas of concern. Dr. Kay uses an effective numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Am I a good candidate?

Generally, Dysport is well-tolerated by most people, however if you’ve had any reactions to similar treatments in the past, or any milk or dairy protein allergy, you should avoid it. Dysport cannot be injected if any infections are present at the injection site, and anybody with neuromuscular diseases are advised against it. Prior to injecting, you must inform us of any medications, vitamins, and/or supplements you are taking. Good candidates are healthy adults displaying lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin.  We recommend avoiding Dysport if you are nursing or pregnant.

Is Dysport safe?

Dysport is a safe, non-invasive, and FDA approved procedure with minimal risk of complications when administered by an experienced and qualified injector. Like most injections, bruising may occur following injection.

Downtime, results, and follow-ups

The best part about Dysport is that there’s no downtime and you can go about enjoying your day as soon as you walk out of the office! Results vary in every individual, but you should see initial results after 3 days and can expect full results by two weeks. We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks out in order to evaluate the results and give additional injections to enhance the effects if necessary. Because Dysport lasts about 4 months on average, you can return to Dr. Kay to preserve your natural, youthful look.

How should I prepare for Dysport injections?

Before coming in to receive your treatment, you should follow these pre-procedure instructions to minimize the risks of adverse reactions:

  • Avoid alcohol, as it may increase your risk of bruising
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood-thinning medications 2 weeks in advance if possible, as these can increase your risk of swelling and bruising (Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, and other NSAIDs).
  • Avoid coming in with makeup or be prepared to remove it.
  • Try to schedule appointment two weeks before special events, as swelling can take up to two weeks to resolve.
  • Stay hydrated and eat well before your appointment.

What should I do after receiving Dysport?

Although there is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities, it is important to follow these post-treatment instructions in order to maximize the results and avoid complications:

  • Remain in the upright position and avoid laying down for 3-4 hours after the procedure. This allows the injections to settle.
  • Avoid excessive facial expressions for the remainder of the day
  • Avoid facials and facial massages for the first week. This can disperse the injections.
  • May ice the treated areas to reduce swelling and bruising if necessary, but be sure to press lightly
  • Use sunglasses in the sun, as Dysport can prevent you from squinting, frowning, and furrowing.
