Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable that is used to treat forehead wrinkles and frown lines. It is made of clostridium botulinim toxin type A, the same active ingredient as Botox. Botulinum toxins work by restricting the muscle activity that causes frown lines, temporarily reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
How Does Dysport Work?
With many similarities to Botox, the primary purpose is to improve the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, which it does by immobilizing the wrinkle-causing muscles. Your surgeon will administer your injection using a tiny needle at the site of forehead wrinkles. Everything takes place in the comfort of our Nashville, TN, office, and only takes a few minutes from start to finish. You’ll be back to normal activities right away.
The Fractional Scanner directs a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light at your skin. Each pulse delivers a column of energy that can reach the skin’s dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body’s collagen. And because the laser beam has been fractionalized, small areas of untreated skin will be left between the treated spots, accelerating the healing process.
What Results Can I Expect with Dysport?
Dysport can improve the appearance of your wrinkles as soon as 24 hours after the treatment. And unlike Botox, which usually only works for up to three months, Dysport reportedly lasts up to six months. And with multiple treatments, you can see long-lasting effects that last for more than 13 months.
