Using Dysport injections to combat the signs of aging
- Posted on: May 15 2020
Everyone wants to maintain their youthfulness, but at what cost? While plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts and brow lifts are often considered when it comes to wrinkles and folds of the facial area, there are other minimally invasive options available at most dermatological practices. At Aura Skin Spa, Dr. Anthony Waechter is excited to offer men and women cosmetic injectables which can help in cases of mild to moderate aging. One popular treatment is that of Dysport injections.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator similar to Xeomin and Botox. It is used by dermatologists to reduce muscle contractions of the face that result in dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead folds. The injection is safe, effective, and affordable for both men and women considering options for fighting fine lines and wrinkles of the facial area.
Who is a candidate for Dysport?
Most patients with the formation of dynamic wrinkles on the face are evaluated to determine if they are a good candidate for treatment. More severe wrinkle and folds may only improve with surgical interventions. However, many patients are excited to find out that they can achieve result without having to have a facelift performed. During the initial appointment, Dr. Anthony Waechter will examine the patient and decide if this or other cosmetic injectables are best.
What can I expect during my appointment?
After you have been evaluated by our professionals to decide if Dysport injections can help alleviate your concerns, patients will be prepared for their injections. The skin is cleansed, and the specific areas of the face are injected with a small amount of Dysport. The amount of Dysport needed will vary depending on the severity of the folds and their location. Once the injections are completed, patients can return to their normal activity. Dysport injections show results after a few days, with final results achieved at approximately one week. The results last for several months before patients return for maintenance injections.
