Dysport Deep Dive

Since most of us are wearing masks in public these days, we only see each other’s eyes and upper half of the face. Our eyes can be deemed “the window to the soul” since they show expressions, our forehead and eyebrows also exhibit our emotions – and age.

Let’s be honest. Most of us want to look younger than we actually are, so it’s no surprise that many individuals turn to cosmetic injectables to reduce visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, which often appear on the forehead and around the eyes.

But for those individuals who are new to considering cosmetic injectables, the wealth of options can be overwhelming and scary to think about. Our quick and easy guide to one of our favorite injectables, Dysport, provides all you need to know about the popular injectable.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a prescription cosmetic injection proven to help smooth moderate-to-severe lines between the eyebrows, without changing the look of the rest of your face.

How does Dysport work?

Treating with Dysport between the eyebrows and around the eyes temporarily prevents muscle movements, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. As we age, hyaluronic acid and collagen diminishes, causing our skin to look thinner and more wrinkled. This contributes to the lines becoming deeper over time.

What does recovery look like?
Cosmetic injectables require very little recovery time. While you may experience minor swelling and bruising, pre- and post-care instructions will minimize side effects. After a few days, your facial lines and creasing will diminish.

How long do the effects last?
The results of Dysport aren’t permanent, and so most clients typically return for treatment every 3 to 4 months.

Why should I consider Dysport at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery?
It’s important to seek a reputable, experienced provider such as the team at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery for several reasons:

Administering Dysport isn’t limited to qualified plastic surgeons and dermatologists
Some injectors may not be trained or have a strong knowledge of facial cosmetics, so it’s important to choose a provider who is experienced in facial aesthetics for the most effective Dysport treatment. Dr. Burke Robinson and Michelle Giglio, PA-C, are recognized National Trainers for Galderma Aesthetics, the makers of Dysport. Madison Holmes, FNP-C is an advanced injector who is also certified in Galderma’s portfolio of Restylane fillers and Dysport.

Providers can offer Dysport that isn’t FDA-approved
Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved injectable neurotoxins. However, counterfeit products can be purchased at a discounted rate outside the United States. These have the potential to produce detrimental effects and may contain materials that shouldn’t be used for human injection. So if the price is too good to be true – it probably is.
