Injection sites for Dysport
Dysport is a simple, FDA approved; non-surgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction, such as frown lines, crow's feet and forehead creases. You can ask to have minimal muscle movement or just a slight improvement in your wrinkles. We individualize your needs and wants.
We use a micro needle and filled with a small amount of Dysport. It is injected precisely into several locations on the face and in some cases other areas including the mouth or neck which relaxes facial muscles resulting in skin that is smooth and unwrinkled.
Dysport is made from the same botulinum toxin Type A as BOTOX and is injected in the same way as BOTOX. Both work by temporarily preventing or reducing muscle action, which reduces lines and furrows.
Dysport injections are most commonly used between the eyebrows, in the forehead and next to the eyes, where "crow's feet" form. Dysport affects only dynamically caused wrinkles, not those caused by aging or collagen depletion. These lines we can treat with various fillers or lasers such as the Pixel, Titan or Harmony xl.
Dysport in some cases has been found to work well for patients who have developed antibodies to BOTOX referred to as “BOTOX resistance” by some patients.
Good to know: Clinical studies of Dysport found it "spreads more" during injection. This is both a good and a bad thing. It is good in that large areas that need injection (forehead, armpits) would require fewer injections due to the spreading. This would mean less likelihood of potential discomfort, swelling or bruising for the patient. It is bad in that unless the Physician is an experienced injector with a good understanding of more complex musculature (around the eyes, between the eyebrows), the Dysport could spread into unwanted areas causing untoward side effects such as drooping.
