Dysport® Injectable In Evansville


LIVE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS NOT YOUR LINES!   Prescription Dysport® injectable is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved treatment for temporarily lessening or eliminating moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® injectable is placed directly into the muscle underneath a furrow, weakening the muscle to the point where it cannot contract. Dysport® injectable is made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum; it is the same neurotoxin used in BOTOX Cosmetic.  Dysport® injectable is approved in 69 countries and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide, 97% of women treated with Dysport say they’d do it again.

Differences Between Dysport® Injectable and BOTOX Cosmetic

Although made from the same bacterium, there is anecdotal evidence that Dysport® injectable may last longer, spread farther and take effect more quickly than BOTOX Cosmetic.

What Is The Procedure For dysport® injectable Treatments?

Dysport® injectable temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Using a very fine needle, Dysport® injectable is placed directly into facial muscles that are causing furrows and lines. No anesthetic is required, but some doctors choose to numb the area to be injected with ice packs or a topical anesthetic cream. Results can usually be seen within a few days of treatment, and typically last up to 5 months, although areas that are treated on a regular basis may retain results longer. Injections should be given only by qualified medical professionals. Dysport® injectable injections are used to treat the following, forehead furrows, frown lines, crow's feet, and skin bands on the neck.

How Long Is The dysport® Procedure?

Although office visits can vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes. The number of injections you will need depends on your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles.  Crow's feet, for example, usually demand two to three injections. Furrows above your brow could take five or more.

In just one 10 to 20 minute treatment, Dysport® injectable may help improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 5 months.

How Long Will My Dysport® Results Last?

The effects from Dysport® injectable will last up to 4 to 5 months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated.  The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

Can I Combine dysport® With Other Injectable Fillers?

Dysport® injectable and dermal fillers are very different types of injectables; however, they compliment each other quite nicely. Combining the two is beneficial because they treat different types of wrinkles, and address multiple areas of the face simultaneously. Dysport® injectable relaxes dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated facial movements like squinting or frowning. Injectable fillers smooth out static wrinkles, which are visible even when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers restore lost volume and help to sculpt youthful looking contours and definition.
