We offer Dysport treatments in Marina Del Rey to help you achieve a younger look when your wrinkles show signs of aging.
Discover everything you need to know about this safe and effective treatment.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is similar to Botox in that both provide neurotoxin treatments to achieve quick results.
For example, an injection of Dysport temporarily reduces muscle activity in certain areas of your face, such as frown lines around the eyebrows, to treat the muscle contractions that cause those frown lines.
Dysport received FDA approval in 2009. Not only does it have aesthetic uses, but it also has therapeutic and medical uses.
How does Dysport work?
Dysport works by softening and relaxing muscles to reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles around the face.
Your clinician injects a small amount of Dysport directly into the muscle using a small needle. As your muscles relax, the skin becomes smoother, and your face naturally diminishes the signs of wrinkles.
How is Dysport different from Botox?
Both are neurotoxins that act as dermal fillers, but Dysport sets faster and uses less protein for long-lasting results.
What areas of the face does Dysport treat?
Dysport was designed for wrinkles around the eyebrows.
However, clinicians can treat four main areas of your face using Dysport:
- Eyebrows, particularly the frown lines
- Forehead, such as the upper forehead with the fine lines and wrinkles
- Upper lip for lipstick lines
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
How many injections you receive over the course of treatment depends on the area of the face you want to improve.
Who is an ideal candidate for Dysport treatments in Marina Del Rey?
If you’re interested in Dysport as an anti-wrinkle treatment, you should be:
- At least 18 years of age
- In good general health
- Unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes or upper lip
This anti-aging regimen works for both men and women.
What medical conditions does Dysport treat in Marina Del Rey?
Dysport represents a valid cosmetic treatment for people looking to reduce facial wrinkles.
It also treats medical conditions as a prescription medication, such as:
- Pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and other tensions in the jaw area.
- Discomfort and pain caused by grinding teeth.
- Migraines, especially imploding-type migraines marked by severe pain moving inward while having a crushing or squeezing sensation. Dysport reduces the severity and duration of these kinds of migraines.
- Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, by interrupting the nerve transmissions to sweat glands.
What does a typical appointment look like for Dysport treatment in Marina Del Rey?
First, we go through a consultation to discuss if Dysport is right for you.
Your next appointment is where you receive your injections.
A typical one lasts 15 minutes while following these steps:
- Your clinician will apply a numbing cream so you don’t feel the small injections.
- We distribute a small amount of Dysport evenly among five injection spots on your face, using a small needle and a shallow injection, whether you want reduced wrinkles around your eyes or upper lip. The injections are very shallow and use a small needle.
- Our team makes sure the injection sites heal properly before sending you on your way.
What are the side effects of Dysport treatments in Del Rey?
The most common temporary side effects of Dysport include:
- Small nodules at each injection site
- Pain at the injection site
Rare and more severe side effects may be possible, such as:
- Eyelid drooping
- Muscle weakness
- Breathing difficulties
- Muscle spasms
- Swallowing difficulties
Many of these more severe symptoms may come from an allergy to Dysport.
How soon do I see results from Dysport treatments in Marina Del Rey?
As soon as three to four days following your treatment in Marina Del Rey.
How long do results last following my Dysport treatment in Marina Del Rey?
Results may last as long as six months. You may need repeat treatments of Dysport during that period, depending on what results you want
What should I do before my next Dysport treatment in Marina Del Rey?
Set up your next treatment with us for three months in advance following your procedure for best outcomes if you want to continue to see good results.
Consider rescheduling if you have a work or social commitment directly after the appointment to avoid interference with your recovery.
Stop taking supplements or medications that induce bruising, swelling, or an increase of bleeding at the place of injection, including NSAIDs. Stop taking fish oil, too.
Do not consume alcohol 24 hours before your procedure to avoid complications related to blood thinning.
Avoid caffeine for 24 hours before your appointment.
Eat a healthy snack before your Dysport treatment in Marina Del Rey to mitigate the chance of becoming lightheaded during the appointment.
Arrive for your treatment with no makeup and a freshly washed face.
What should I do after I receive my Dysport treatment in Marina Del Rey?
You might feel and see small nodules at each injection site. Although they disappear quickly, avoid massaging them until they do.
Moisturize or apply petroleum jelly to reduce dry skin or itchiness associated with the alcohol used to sterilize the skin before your injections.
Please avoid high and direct heat for 24 hours after treatment, such as saunas, hot tubs, sunburn, and exercise.
Do not take aspirin to treat any headaches because they can act as blood thinners. If you get a headache within 36 hours of your Dysport treatment in Marina Del Rey, take another type of over-the-counter pain medication.
Cover up any small bruises with makeup. These bruises are normal.
Protect your skin from the sun because over-exposure to sunlight represents one of the main factors of premature aging in the skin.
Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water because skin needs water to stay elastic, strong, soft, and supple.
Who should not receive Dysport treatments in Marina Del Rey?
- Pregnant women
- Breastfeeding women
- People allergic to botulinum toxin
- Anyone allergic to cow’s milk
- Someone with an infection, swelling, or muscle weakness in the area where the medicine will be injected
