If you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the forehead area, you may want to consider Dysport® at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. We are proud to offer this and other injectable treatments to men and women living in Houston, San Antonio and Sugar Land, TX.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable treatment that is quite similar to Botox®, which works by relaxing muscles in the face that are responsible for causing wrinkles. The Dysport® formula is composed of a neuromodulator called botulinum toxin. When injected into the facial muscles, the Dysport® formula prevents muscle contractions that would otherwise create and worsen wrinkles. As a result, patients can enjoy a reduction in the appearance of the following wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Bunny lines
- Forehead wrinkles
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
The cost of Dysport® is $4.50 per unit, but the cost of treatment can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Dysport® Treatment Like?
Dysport® and other injectable treatments are minimally invasive, and don’t require any anesthetic for the procedure. During the treatment, a few injections of the Dysport® formula will be administered to the desired treatment area. You may feel a pinch during the injection, but it is tolerable. Once the injections are finished, your treatment will be complete.
Is There Any Downtime After Dysport®?
There is no downtime required after Dysport®, and you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. This is why Dysport® and other injectable treatments are commonly referred to as “lunchtime” solutions. Patients may notice minor swelling, redness or bruising around the injection site, but these effects typically fade within just a few days of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Dysport®?
The results from Dysport® may not be visible for a few days, until the Dysport® formula takes full effect in the treated muscles. However, most patients will notice the full results from treatment within a few days. The results from Dysport® typically last about four to six months, after which time many patients choose to receive additional treatments to maintain their results.
