Dysport® in Kansas City

When you look in the mirror, you may notice what are called frown lines, also called glabellar folds, that look like a permanent number “11” between your eyebrows. They appear after years of natural facial expressions like squinting and frowning. Though the deep skin folds will not hurt you physically, they could be in the way of expressing your true feelings to others.

When frown lines, crow’s feet, or deep laugh lines concern you, consult a nurse injector at Associated Plastic Surgeons. You have many options for making improvements, including non-surgical treatments such as Dysport® in Kansas City.

What Is Dysport®?

Dysport®, an injectable neuromodulator that contains abobotulinumtoxin A, can produce quick and natural looking results by successfully reducing the appearance of frown or glabellar lines. This is accomplished by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles beneath the surface, which stops the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Due to its innovative composition consisting of smaller protein molecules, Dysport is less concentrated and more fluid than other similar products. Consequently, the solution can spread quickly and efficiently throughout the targeted treatment area, leading to noticeable changes in just a matter of days.

Another improvement with Dysport is that results will appear quickly after treatment. Usually, within 24 hours, you will start to see the beginning of changes from the more relaxed muscles. Over the following two weeks, the change will continue to evolve and improve. Effects routinely last about three months, though every patient’s results can differ. If you like what you see, you can set up recurring Dysport appointments at our office in Kansas City to control your wrinkles and folds.

Dysport® vs. BOTOX® Cosmetic

Both Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are composed of botulinum toxin type A, which is a neuromodulator that induces temporary relaxing of the muscles located under the skin. The BOTOX solution is denser in consistency and can provide stable outcomes, but some patients may appear excessively rigid or lose the ability to express themselves. In contrast, Dysport is more diluted, resulting in a softer and more natural-looking effect, which still efficiently eliminates wrinkles. The thinner formulation also allows it to disperse more rapidly in the treatment area, typically leading to quicker results than BOTOX.

What Are the Benefits of Dysport®?

Our Dysport® patients often feel like their frown lines cause them to appear frustrated or even angry when that is not the case. Using this treatment is a great way to take back control of your facial expressions and gain confidence. Some of the superior benefits of Dysport include:

  • Spreadability which provides fast and natural results that don’t look “frozen”
  • Effectively smooth forehead lines, also referred to as glabellar or “11” lines
  • Minimally invasive and non-surgical option for anti-aging
  • Alternative for those who may not have seen great results with Botox

What to Expect at Your First Dysport® Appointment

A session lasts only 15 to 20 minutes, so they can be easily worked into a busy schedule. There may be light bruising, redness, or swelling in the area injected, though makeup can easily cover this.

Treatment with a neuromodulator can be very muscle-specific. This is important since you only want the muscles that need to relax to be affected while the rest of your facial muscles continue to work normally.
