What Is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator used to reduce the appearance of glabellar lines between the eyebrows. Like the more well-known Botox, Dysport in Philadelphia uses the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. When this neurotoxin is injected into the skin, it temporarily blocks the signals from the nerves that tell the facial muscles to contract. Because the muscles can no longer contract, the skin becomes smoother and firmer, greatly softening the appearance of frown lines in the process.

Who Is a Candidate for Dysport?

Adults looking to be rid of their glabellar lines could be good candidates for Dysport in Philadelphia. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Be over the age of 18
  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Have moderate to severe glabellar lines
  • Be free of active skin outbreaks and rashes
  • Have no history of neuromuscular diseases
  • Not be currently pregnant or nursing
  • Have no allergies to any Dysport ingredients
  • Have reasonable expectations

What Are the Benefits of Dysport?

For anyone with a desire to soften their frown lines, Dysport treatment can offer some or all of these benefits:

  • Reduced or eliminated glabellar lines
  • Smoother, more youthful-looking facial skin
  • Prevents the formation of new frown lines
  • Natural-looking results
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Quick, simple treatment
  • Little to no recovery downtime

    What Should You Expect From Your Dysport Treatment?

    Your Dysport treatment will be administered during a simple outpatient procedure. To begin, you’ll likely have a topical anesthetic applied to the skin in the treatment area. Dr. Bloom will then inject the Dysport using a very fine needle. Overall, the treatment should only take approximately 20 to 30 minutes, and you’ll be able to return home right after it’s completed.

    What Will the Recovery and Results Be Like After Dysport Treatment?

    For most patients, there is virtually no recovery downtime needed after Dysport treatment. You should be able to return to your normal routine immediately, but you’ll want to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 24 hours. Additionally, it’s important to avoid rubbing or scratching the injection sites for the first day or two.

    The results of your Dysport treatment should start to appear within a few days. However, it can take up to two weeks for the complete effects to become visible.

    Your Dysport Consultation

    Before you undergo Dysport treatment, the first step will be to sit down for a consultation with Dr. Bloom. During this meeting, you’ll be able to ask any questions you have about the treatment. The doctor will ask you about your aesthetic goals and help you determine if Dysport is right for you. He will also need to know about your medical history, current health, any allergies you have, and medications you’re taking. Dr. Bloom will then devise a custom-tailored treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and preferences.
