Conveniently located to serve New York City
At Shafer Plastic Surgery in New York City, Dysport is a popular injectable treatment for smoothing out deep glabellar lines, or frown lines, between the eyebrows. Dysport treatments are a quick, convenient option for restoring a more inviting, youthful facial appearance by relaxing the muscles that cause these pesky vertical creases.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It is a prescription for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.
Dysport is supplied as a single-use, sterile 300-unit vial. The dose of Dysport for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between your eyebrows) is a total of 50 units injected equally among the specific muscles. The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
“Really a great job, your technical skill knowing the location and volume provided a very smooth and balanced result”
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dysport candidates are men and women who are over the age of 18 and in good overall health. Dysport is specifically formulated to target frown lines, so patients seeking treatment for other types of wrinkles will be advised of alternative options for accomplishing their aesthetic goals.
Patients who do not wish to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery can consider Dysport as a wrinkle reduction treatment. However, it is important that candidates understand that Dysport offers temporary enhancement and that regular injections will be needed to maintain improvements.
Patients with certain allergies may not be good candidates for Dysport. Be sure to provide complete and accurate medical information during your consultation, so we can determine if Dysport is a safe treatment for you. Dysport is not recommended for pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding.
Dr. Shafer will meet with you for a consultation to discuss expectations and assess your frown lines. These are important steps for identifying whether Dysport is the best approach to resolving your cosmetic concerns.
A review of your medical history will be conducted to confirm your compatibility for the procedure. Dr. Shafer is happy to address all of your questions at this time, as well.
The Dysport Procedure
A numbing cream may be applied to your skin prior to the injection process to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Generally, you may feel a bit of pressure from the injections, but you should not experience significant pain.
Dysport injections will be administered in five strategic points around the eyes and forehead. The total procedure time is typically less than 30 minutes.
Dysport does not require a significant recovery period. Patients will be advised to keep the face elevated for the first few hours after their injections and should avoid putting pressure on the injection sites.
It is best not to apply makeup or skin care products for at least four hours after your procedure. Strenuous activities should also be postponed, as directed by Dr. Shafer. These precautions will minimize the potential for swelling and bruising and will prevent Dysport from spreading outside the intended treatment area.
How Much Does a Dysport Treatment Cost?
The cost of wrinkle reduction with Dysport varies for each patient, depending on the severity of his or her facial creases. The price of your treatment will reflect how much Dysport is needed to accomplish your desired outcome.
