Welcome to our comprehensive Patient’s Guide to Dysport in Alpharetta. If you’ve been looking for an effective solution to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Dysport offers a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that can help you achieve a more youthful look.
This guide will provide you with all the essential information you need, from the basics of what Dysport is and how it works, to what you can expect during and after the treatment. As always, it’s important to consult with a professional before making any decisions about your health and well-being.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals between muscles, which causes them to relax and decrease in size. Dysport can be used for a variety of cosmetic purposes, including reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport works by blocking nerve signals between the muscles in your face, causing them to relax and reduce in size. This helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other areas of aging skin. As a result of this relaxation effect, Dysport also provides an overall smoother complexion with an improved facial appearance.
What are the common uses of Dysport?
For our Alpharetta clients, we commonly use Dysport to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other aging skin. We also use it to improve facial symmetry and volume, as well as to help create a more balanced overall facial appearance.
What are the benefits of Dysport?
The main benefit of Dysport for our Alpharetta clients is its ability to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face, giving a more youthful appearance. Additionally, it can also help with facial symmetry and volume, as well as providing an overall smoother complexion.
How is Dysport different from Botox?
Dysport and Botox are similar neuromodulators, both of which are used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. However, Dysport is longer-lasting than Botox, as well as spreading further over the area of injection.
Can Dysport be combined with other cosmetic treatments?
For many of our Alpharetta med spa clients, we combine Dysport with other cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers or laser skin resurfacing, which provides an even more dramatic and longer-lasting effect. To ensure the best results, it is important to speak with Anderson Aesthetics’ medical director, your nurse injector, before combining multiple cosmetic treatments.
Are the results of Dysport natural-looking?
Dysport provides natural-looking results for our Alpharetta clients that blend in with their existing facial features. Dysport should not drastically alter the look of your face, but instead give a smoother and more balanced appearance.
What can I expect during my Dysport treatment?
Your Dysport treatment at our Alpharetta office may take up to 30 minutes to complete. During the procedure, you will feel a slight pinch or sting as each injection is administered, but this should be brief and well-tolerated. After the initial injections are made, your nurse injector will massage the area to ensure even distribution of the product. You may experience some minor redness and swelling around the injection site, but this should fade quickly and not last more than a few hours.
How long does Dysport last?
For most of our Alpharetta clients, the effects of Dysport typically last four to six months, although it can vary from person to person. It is not uncommon for the results to wear off sooner; if this happens, you may need to schedule additional treatments to maintain your desired look.
How soon will I see results after Dysport treatment?
Most of our Alpharetta clients notice visible results within a day or two after their Dysport treatments. The full effects of Dysport may take up to two weeks to be noticeable, however, so it is important to be patient as you wait for the full results.
How often should I get Dysport injections to maintain results?
Most of our Alpharetta clients get Dysport injections every four to six months to maintain results. It is important to discuss your individual needs with your nurse injector to determine the ideal treatment schedule for you.
How long is the recovery time after Dysport injections?
The recovery time after Dysport injections is short. You may experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection site for a few hours, but these side effects should fade quickly. Most of our Alpharetta clients return to their normal activities right away with no downtime required.
What should I expect after a Dysport treatment?
After a Dysport treatment at our Alpharetta office, the treated area may be a little swollen. This is normal and should subside within 24 hours. Additionally, Dysport can take up to two weeks for full effects to show. It is important to refrain from activities such as touching or rubbing your face for at least four to six hours after the treatment.
Is Dysport a permanent solution for wrinkles?
No, Dysport is not a permanent solution for wrinkles. It is designed to temporarily relax the muscles, reduce wrinkles, and reduce fine lines on the face.
Can Dysport be used for other medical conditions?
We commonly use Dysport to treat a variety of medical conditions for our Alpharetta clients. Dysport is approved by the FDA to treat adults with severe underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) and for treating certain neck muscle spasms. Additionally, it has been used off-label to treat chronic migraine headaches and uterine fibroids.
Are there any potential side effects of Dysport?
The most reported potential side effects of Dysport include pain, redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These should resolve within a few hours after treatment. Additionally, some people may experience headaches or neck stiffness in the days following treatment. If these symptoms do not improve within a few days or become more severe, you should contact your doctor right away.
How many units of Dysport do I need for my specific concern?
The number of units of Dysport needed will depend on the individual and his or her desired results. During your consultation at our Alpharetta office, Sr. Anderson will help you determine the ideal dosage for your needs, as well as how often to receive treatments to maintain results. It is important to follow your nurse injector’s instructions carefully to ensure optimal results.
Is Dysport painful?
Thankfully, most of our Alpharetta clients report that Dysport injections are only mildly uncomfortable. You may feel a slight pinch or sting during the injections, but this should be brief and well-tolerated. After the initial treatment, you may experience some minor redness or swelling around the injection site, but these symptoms should fade quickly with no long-term effects.
Are there any age restrictions with Dysport?
Dysport is only approved for adults ages 18 and over.
Can I get Dysport injections while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Dysport is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women because of its potential risks to the fetus or newborn. It is important to speak with your doctor before beginning any treatment regimen to ensure it is right for you.
Are there any restrictions or precautions before getting Dysport?
We recommend that our Alpharetta clients avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after receiving injections. Also, if you have a history of neuromuscular disease or allergies to botulinum toxin, Dysport may not be the right treatment option for you. Your nurse injector can help decide if Dysport is an appropriate treatment option for you.
Can I exercise or go swimming after getting Dysport?
We tell our Alpharetta clients that it is best to avoid strenuous exercise and swimming for at least 24 hours after getting Dysport injections. This will help minimize potential side effects and ensure optimal results. Additionally, patients should also avoid sun exposure for the first few days after treatment to reduce the risk of developing dark spots or lines around the injection sites. After 24 hours, you can return to your normal activities and enjoy the benefits of Dysport.
