Dysport® in Austin, TX

It is thought that wrinkles, such as frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet, are caused by the repetitive movement of the facial muscles. Dysport® is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment developed to help minimize these early physical signs of growing older. At Door to Door MedSpa, Dr. Claudia Legere, offers Dysport® to men and women who live in and around Austin, Texas and the surrounding communities desiring skin rejuvenation.

What is Dysport®?

Dysport®, much like Botox®, is an injectable treatment providing dramatic yet temporary enhancement in the firmness of the skin and significant improvement in the appearance of wrinkles.

When Dysport® is used on its own, it can significantly reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. Even greater results and revitalization may be achieved when combined with a dermal filler. Dysport® is injected directly into the targeted facial muscles in order to temporarily relax the muscles and change their activity. This action causes fine lines to diminish in appearance, resulting in a softer, smoother look.

Dysport® vs. Botox®

Though Dysport® and Botox® work in a similar way, there are some noteworthy differences between the two. Dysport® begins to work faster than Botox®. It has been our experience that most patients see some difference within 24 hours after treatment with Dysport®, while results from Botox® may not be seen for five to seven days.

There are also distinct differences between Dysport® and Botox® in terms of price and dosing. Where one unit dosage of Botox® may be all that is needed to achieve desired results, it may take two to three times that unit dosage of Dysport® to achieve the same goal. In the long run, both Dysport® and Botox® are similar in price and value.

It is important to note, however, that Dysport® has the tendency to spread more than Botox® does. It is possible for the Dysport® to radiate outward and affect areas outside the targeted treatment area; however, our skill and expertise with this particular product ensures that we deliver the treatment to the targeted facial muscles with the utmost accuracy.

Why Choose Dysport®?

Dysport® has become one of the most popular injectable treatments and there’s no wonder why since it yields outstanding natural results! Dysport® is one of the best decisions you can make when wanting to revive your appearance without the hassle and pain of surgery. The treatment is most effective in reducing the appearance of different types of facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, neck wrinkles, and expression lines.

Results are typically visible within 24 hours after treatment and for the majority of patients, there are little to no side effects of the treatment.

Dysport® is recommended across the world by board-certified doctors and nurse injectors, with a solid record of safety and success. Developed in 1991 as a treatment for muscle spasms and other muscle disorders, Dysport® has now gained fame as a treatment for many different conditions in over 75 countries.

The Dysport® Procedure

During your initial consultation, we will work with you to determine if you would benefit from Dysport® treatment. Once we have confirmed your eligibility, you may begin treatment at any time. We will use facial analyzation in order to determine the most effective injection sites as well as the amount of Dysport® needed to achieve your desired results. Using a very fine needle, the product is injected directly into the targeted facial areas. The procedure itself may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. The majority of patients report experiencing little to no discomfort during the actual procedure. Topical anesthetic and/or ice are available for use in order to ensure complete pain relief.

Complications from Dysport® treatments are extremely rare. In these situations, some minor bruising may appear, but it naturally begins to fade within two to three days. Some patients may experience slight soreness or discomfort at the injection site(s), and in even rarer cases, headaches and mild inflammation. If any pain is experienced, it is usually minor and subsides within a day or two.

Are You A Candidate For Dysport®?

Are you tired of looking older than you feel? Tired of seeing wrinkles around your eyes, brow, forehead, and nose? Dysport® may be the treatment for you. Ideal candidates for Dysport® treatments must be in overall good health and must maintain reasonable expectations regarding the results obtained with Dysport®. Dysport® is not recommended for people with an allergy to abobotulinumtoxin.

What Can I Expect After The Dysport® Procedure?

Although Dysport® treatment itself is simple and relatively quick, results are not fully visible for several days after the procedure, though some initial enhancement may be noticeable within 24 hours. Some patients have reported experiencing mild discomfort right after the procedure, but this pain usually lessens within a day or two.

How Soon Can I Return To Work After Dysport®?

Since Dysport® requires no downtime, you are able to return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment. It is recommended that you wait 24 hours after treatment before returning to exercise.
