The onset of facial wrinkles can significantly affect your self-esteem and confidence, making you look and feel old. But thanks to the miracles of modern aesthetic medicine, such as Dysport, we can reverse the signs of aging with a few painless injections and no downtime!
Your Dysport consultation with Dr. Hicks
Dr. Hicks offers personalized consultations to all her patients. During your consultation, she will review your medical history, discuss your goals and concerns, examine your facial wrinkles, and curate the ideal treatment plan. She will personalize the treatment and select the appropriate units for each area to ensure naturalized results without an overworked or frozen appearance.
Dysport corrects the following:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
- Laughter lines around the nose and mouth
- Perioral lines around the lips (smoker’s lines or lipstick lines)
- Cobblestone chin creases
What can I expect after Dysport?
You can expect mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection points. The side effects usually dissipate within a few days.
You may resume your daily activities and work immediately, but abstain from strenuous workouts for a day.
How is Dysport performed?
Your medical provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a topical anesthetic to ensure comfort. The appropriate units of Dysport are carefully injected into your facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The entire treatment concludes within 15 to 30 minutes.
Suppress unwanted facial wrinkles with a few shots
Most of the unwanted facial wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing, smiling, and squinting. When you contract your facial muscles to produce these expressions, you may notice expression lines that disappear once your face returns to a neutral position. But as you grow older, the continued use of these facial muscles deepens the expression lines, making them stay on your face even at rest.
Dr. Hicks offers personalized Dysport injections to suppress unwanted facial wrinkles. With a few strategic injections, Dysport can temporarily relax the contracted facial muscles and soften the associated wrinkles, making your facial skin look smoother and more youthful. Dysport belongs to the same category of cosmetic injections as Botox. It’s a neuromodulator made of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin protein that temporarily blocks communications between nerve endings and targeted muscles, which can be repurposed to correct unwanted facial wrinkles.
When will I see the Dysport results?
You should start noticing the results of Dysport after 3 to 4 days, with continued improvements for up to 2 weeks. Once the results are finalized, your facial skin will look smoother and softer.
How long do Dysport results last?
The Dysport results usually last for 3 to 4 months. Your facial wrinkles will gradually reappear after 3 months, so you can opt for another treatment to extend the results. Most patients opt for 3 to 4 Dysport sessions annually to maintain an eternally youthful appearance.
