Approved by the FDA in 2009, Dysport has helped millions of Americans regain their confidence by reducing the signs of aging. Dysport is a medication developed from botulinum toxin A, which is used to reduce muscle contractions. When injected into specific muscles of the face, including the forehead and frown lines, Dysport can help smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Unlike traditional plastic surgery, Dysport does not involve anesthesia, cutting of the skin, or extensive time off from work and daily activities for recovery. Patients can be treated with Dysport in our office and go about the rest of their day without any downtime. This is an amazing anti-aging solution for adults who are ready to take charge of their appearance once and for all.
What is Dysport? - explained by Dr. Mary Lupo
Dysport is another neuromodulator that came after botox. I have some patients in my practice who had felt that dysport works a little bit better for them. Either it kicks in quicker or lasts a little bit longer.
But the major differentiator of dysport is that it has a greater area of diffusion. Greater area of diffusion means that from the spot you inject it, it spreads a little bit more. Now this can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the patient.
What is the use of Dysport?
The use of Dysport, Botox, Jeuveau and Xeomin, the message should be to patients is that, talk to your physician and make sure that your physician knows and understands the differences between these products.
And they are not using the same one on everyone, that they do individualize the treatment and understand the differences in the neuromodulator so that when they do inject then they going to get the best possible outcome for each individual patient.
Before any treatment, Dr. Lupo meets with potential patients and performs an extensive medical background evaluation to determine who is the proper candidate for Dysport injections. She may also recommend other procedures such as dermal fillers or laser resurfacing treatments in order for patients to benefit from overall anti-aging rejuvenation.
