Dysport is a wrinkle relaxer that is most commonly injected into the upper face to reduce the muscle activity responsible for wrinkling to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines found between the eyebrows. Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Voci, injects Dysport once into each of the 5 spots between and above the eyebrows where muscle activity is linked to these lines and wrinkles. Since the rest of the face is untouched, the results are younger-looking, smoother skin that appears more natural-looking without the “frozen face” effect. Dysport’s effects can last up to 4 months.
Dysport is injected via a fine needle to specific areas on the face. Prior to the injection, these areas are marked, and a numbing anesthetic is applied. The amount of medicine injected varies by patient depending on their aesthetic goals. Some individuals will have deeper, broader wrinkles while others wish to target fines lines (which requires less product). Dysport is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 30 minutes.
"I am beyond pleased with my dysport I received from Dr. Voci. I am in the industry and have had numerous injectors. I must say, Dr. Voci by far is my go to from here out with anything. Impeccable service, beautiful location and they will make you feel as though you are their only concern..I highly recommend"- A.H. / Google / Oct 22, 2020
What to Expect
There is no downtime after a Dysport injection. Some mild swelling and redness may occur at the injection sites, but the skin will return to a normal appearance a few hours after treatment. Ice packs are often compressed to the site immediately after treatment to help calm the skin and reduce these after effects. Patients are able to resume their normal activities during the same day as their treatment. Results will become apparent within a couple of short days.
Dysport or BOTOX?
Both Dysport and Botox are safe and effective to treat facial wrinkles and both are widely available. A skilled practitioner can tell which medication may offer the best benefit. The results of a Dysport injection typically become visible faster than BOTOX, last 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.
How Often for Treatment?
Patients are usually ready for a follow-up visit within 3-4 months after treatment. This varies by patient.
