What is Dysport?

Dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor offers Boston, MA women and men several nonsurgical options for rejuvenating their skin. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts like BOTOX to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions and movements (like smiling, laughing, and frowning) throughout the face. These expressions cause the skin over the muscle to have an etched line that is visible, even when the face is resting. Dysport is specifically designed to correct the most frequent dynamic wrinkles: the lines between the eyebrows. Dysport temporarily blocks signals to the muscle so the dynamic wrinkle is smoothed but with natural-looking results that don't give the appearance of a "frozen" face. Those in the Boston, Natick, or Framingham, MA areas can learn more about Dysport injectable wrinkle relaxer treatments at Skin Center Boston by calling and setting up a consultation today.

How Do Dysport Injections Work?

Dysport injections are administered in one of our treatment rooms and take about 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is usually unnecessary because the injections are made using a fine-gauge needle that causes minimal discomfort, but it can be requested for those that have a low-pain tolerance or are nervous. Before the injection, the skin will be cleaned and five carefully placed injections will be made across the brow with a cold compress to follow in order to minimize bruising and swelling. After their Dysport treatment, patients should be able to perform normal tasks but should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.

What Happens After Getting Dysport Injections?

After a Dysport treatment, patients may notice mild redness and swelling at and around the injection site, but this typically will disappear in a few days. Sleeping upright for the first night is advised, and if necessary, patients should feel free to continue to use cold compresses to ease any discomfort. Results are commonly seen within a few days as the visibility of lines is minimized, producing a smoother, softer appearance. Dysport injection results typically remain for about 3 – 4 months and touch-up injections may be scheduled at Skin Center Boston in Boston, MA to maintain results.

Who Can Get Dysport?

Dysport is great for those that want a nonsurgical treatment to correct moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines that appear between the eyebrows. It is an effective, fast treatment that helps correct dynamic wrinkles on anyone over the age of 18. Dysport expands to reach a cluster of wrinkles and is also ideal for anyone who has Crow's feet. Those considering Dysport injections should discuss any medications, allergies, or medical conditions with dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor before getting the procedure. Those that are pregnant or nursing should not consider Dysport until they have had their baby or are no longer nursing.
