Dysport

With over two million users and counting, Dysport is one of the most popular beauty medical treatments in Europe because everyone loves being wrinkle free. One of the newest names in the Botox industry is called, Dysport. Dysport has been around for close to two decades world wide.

Wrinkles may develop as muscles under the skin contract when we laugh, smile, frown or express emotions in any way. Over time, as the muscles contract and relax again and again, it becomes a pattern which is how you can start to see the wrinkles. Dysport works by countering the effects of the muscles under skin, and by weakening its ability to contract to avoid any possible patterns.

The reason why everyone loves it so much is because it stops the skin from creasing, and leaves you with even, smooth, and flawless skin you’d love to show off. If you want to stop the first signs of wrinkles or want to rejuvenate and tone skin, lines and features, we have the answers.

What can Dysport do for you?

Most people laugh, frown, squint, or make facial expressions which is perfectly normal. However, from making facial expressions does cause skin creases because your facial muscles are constantly being contracted. With age, comes different skin issues such as losing elasticity or your creases begin to deepin on your face. Frown lines between your eyes are formed and you start to look angry when you are not. If you can relate to this, let me tell you about our line.

Our line of premium Dysport treatments can fix all of those problems. Dysport can eliminate signs of wrinkles and fine lines, lift the brows and cheeks, and tighten the skin. Dysport can smooth out those line and you can have a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. What is great about Dysport is the ability to help you gain a new habit of not frowning or creating creases in your face. Physically, after the treatment you will not be able to frown. The fact that you are unable to frown, will reduce your urge to frown, hence to why I said you will form a new habit.

The Process of Dysport

We inject tiny amounts of Dysport directly into the facial muscles underlying the fine lines. It normally takes three to five small injections between the eyebrows for an effective treatment. No local anaesthetic is usually required but you may request from your doctor to numb the skin over the area before injecting. Our treatments can take anywhere between 10-20 minutes.

Over the next few days, your muscles will be stiff but they will gradually relax. You will not look unnatural, you’d still be able to blink and raise your eyebrows, except you won’t be able to frown. You will soon be able to enjoy your youthful appearance while maintaining a natural expression.

Benefits from Dysport

Deeply etched frown lines affect not just your appearance, but also your self-esteem and even your choice of career. Dysport can help you look younger, more relaxed and in control – for around the same price per month as a cut and colour by your hairdresser.

Many people with frown lines can benefit from Dysport – and it can work as well for men as it does for women. In fact many men are already experiencing the benefits of a younger, more relaxed looking appearance that Dysport can provide. Discuss with your specialist about the benefits of Dysport for you.

Are there any side effects and risks with Dysport?

Along with its desired effects, treatments can cause unwanted effects. This does not happen very often. The most common side effects are temporary soreness or mild bruising around the injection site. Some people may experience a slight headache that lasts for several hours after treatment; it is safe to take a mild pain killer to relieve this.

In a very small percentage of cases there can be a complication called “ptosis” (a drooping eyelid) which may last a few days or up to 4 weeks. Rarely, an allergic reaction can cause a skin rash or “flu like” symptoms. Tell your doctor if you experience any troublesome side effects.

You should not have Dysport treatment while you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or at all if you have a neuromuscular disease.

Who can provide treatment with Dysport?

Dysport is a prescription medicine containing 500 units of Clostridium botulinum type A toxin-haemagglutinin complex. It should be administered only by medical professionals, who have an excellent understanding of the muscles and expressions of the face and the skill to retain your natural expression while removing the signs of aging.

Tell your doctor what you expect to achieve in advance, be guided by their advice and ensure you are being treated by a specialist who has been properly trained in the use of Dysport.
