Over time, small frown lines begin to form between the eyebrows. Many people just assume this is a natural part of the aging process and leave it untreated, but there is a simple solution that is available – Dysport.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable solution that will help treat or improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines that have formed between the eyebrows. It is very similar to other cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, but it does not have the potential to temporarily hinder facial movements or change the overall appearance of the face.
Dysport is available by prescription only and must be administered by a trained healthcare provider, like Dr. Vivian Bucay and her staff.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Use of Dysport?
Dysport is intended for use by men and women under the age of 65 who have moderate to severe frown lines that formed between the eyebrows. People wishing to dramatically reduce the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles in as little as one office visit are good candidates for this type of procedure.
Who Should Not Consider Using Dysport?
Dysport should not be used by anyone who has an allergy to any of the ingredients in the injection. People with allergies to cow’s milk protein or any botulinum toxin should not use Dysport.
Some facial conditions and/or recent cosmetic procedures may prevent you from being a good candidate for the use of Dysport. For example, people with sagging eyelid folds, deep facial scars, oily skin, and weak facial muscles may have difficulty seeing results from Dysport and therefore should consider using another form of treatment.
Dr. Vivian Bucay and her team can help you determine if Dysport is right for you. Our staff will ask you a series of health-related questions and perform a brief visual inspection of your skin. This will help us determine if Dysport is the treatment of choice to help you.
How is Dysport Administered?
Dysport is administered by injection. We will put a single injection into five different points in the area over your eyebrows. The entire process takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes.
How long do results last?
Results from the Dysport injection are noticeable after the first appointment and will last up to four months. Our patients are encouraged to schedule another appointment anywhere from 2 to 4 months to keep the frown lines from reappearing.
