Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman offers Las Vegas, NV women and men several nonsurgical procedures for rejuvenating the skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that acts like BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines throughout the face. Unsightly wrinkles are formed by recurrent facial expressions and movements (like smiling, laughing, and frowning) that over time make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a furrowed line that can be seen even when the face is resting. Dysport is uniquely designed to address the most frequent wrinkles: the frown lines that show up as vertical lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily softens the treated muscles so the unwanted wrinkles are smooth but with natural-looking results that don't give you a "frozen" face. Hear more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer injections at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas to make your face appear refreshed.
Ideal Candidates For Dysport
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical procedure to address mild, moderate, or severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are created by frequent use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear tired, mad, or sad. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that corrects wrinkles without leaving a "surprised" appearance. Since Dysport's formula expands to reach a group of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, the small wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Many patients at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas notice a visible improvement in their profile in 1 – 3 days following their injections that on average remain for as long as four months.
Dysport Procedure Technique
Injections of Dysport are done in one of our procedure rooms following your consultation with Dr. Z, lasting around 15 – 20 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally unnecessary because the Dysport is injected using a fine needle that creates very little pain, but it may be applied if requested. The treatment area will be cleaned and five well-placed Dysport injections will be made across the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to limit bruising and swelling. Following your procedure at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas, you may perform daily tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least a day.
What to Expect In Dysport
Following a Dysport session, you may notice slight redness and swelling near the injected area, but this typically will resolve within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep propped up for the first night and may want to apply cold compresses if needed. Improvements are often noticeable in 1 – 3 days as the appearance of your lines is decreased for a softer, smoother contour. Your results should remain for around 3 – 4 months and touch-up injections may be scheduled at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas to extend your results.
Dysport Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the number of Dysport injections needed to attain your desired results. During your consult, Dr. Z or a member of his team can discuss your estimated costs and go over all your payment options.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner, like Dr. Z, can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically becomes visible faster than BOTOX, lasts a bit longer, and spreads to a larger coverage area.
Dysport or filler?
Patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial appearance may look into injectable fillers, as well as products, such as Dysport, to attain results. Both skin treatments work to decrease facial wrinkles but use varying approaches. Injectable fillers add volume to certain facial structures, which creates a smooth result on the surface. It is common today to combine products, such as Dysport and BOTOX, with an injectable filler. This has been labeled a "liquid facelift" and provides outstanding results for individuals who do not want surgery.
Can it be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Many patients elect to combine Dysport with their surgical facelift, or skin resurfacing treatment for even more dramatic results. Dr. Z can discuss your cosmetic goals during your consult and let you know which procedures can be incorporated with Dysport.
How often for treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3 – 4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
