When you smile, squint, and frown these days, do a few more wrinkles show up and seem to stay? Dysport® injectable wrinkle reducer can help. At Medical Institute of Healthy Aging (MIHA) in Napa and Walnut Creek, California, Dr. Kim, MD and Dr. Dave, DO offer this treatment to ease the appearance of expression wrinkles to give you a smoother, younger look. If you’re interested in learning how Dysport can help you, call the office or schedule online to learn more.

What is Dysport?

Renowned cosmetic injectable developer Galderma is proud to offer Dysport – a product similar to the well-known wrinkle-reducer known as Botox®. Dysport is made from a purified toxin that disrupts the way your nerves communicate with your facial muscles.

When Dysport is injected into key areas of your face, the muscles are no longer able to contract, lessening the appearance of lines and wrinkles – especially those that show when you smile or frown.

How is Dysport different from Botox?

Dysport is just as effective as Botox, and in fact, some people even prefer its results. It has a slightly different potency in terms of trace proteins. The results also may appear sooner. Instead of having to wait seven days to notice a change, Dysport effects can show up in just two to three days. The effects of Dysport disperse a little more evenly than its popular competitor, too. The physicians at MIHA can help you understand if Dysport is right for your needs.

What areas can be treated with Dysport?

The physicians at MIHA may suggest Dysport to treat:

  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • The “elevens,” or vertical lines between your eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet along the sides of your eyes

When these areas smooth out, you look more youthful, less serious, and more relaxed.

How long will it take for me to see the results of Dysport?

The effects of Dysport are temporary, lasting about three to four months. Schedule regular follow-up treatments with the physicians at MIHA to maintain your look for the long term.

Do Dysport injections hurt?

The application of Dysport does involve a needle, but it’s very fine and the treatments are quick. You can expect to feel a pinch with each injection, but most people tolerate the treatment quite well. If you’re concerned about sensation, talk to the physicians at MIHA about using a topical numbing cream during your appointment.

Should I schedule downtime following Dysport treatments?

Dysport is a quick, simple procedure that requires absolutely no downtime. You can go back to work, exercise, and other daily activities immediately following your treatment.

Some people may have minor bruising or redness right after the injections, but these are easily covered with makeup and fade within a day or two.

If you’re ready to look more youthful and worry-free, call the Medical Institute of Healthy Aging to learn more about Dysport or use this website to request an appointment.
