Dysport® in Lafayette, LA
If you’re looking for a way to reverse the signs of aging but are reluctant to have plastic surgery, Dysport® may be right for you. At our Lafayette, LA clinic, Plastic Surgery Associates offer Dysport® injections to help reduce the look of frown lines, crow’s feet and more.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport is an injectable skin treatment using the botulism toxin. Unlike other kinds of treatments, Dysport® won’t affect untreated areas of the face, giving you the freedom to smile, laugh and express yourself without worrying about your appearance. Dysport® is particularly beneficial for treating frown lines and the brow area.
Benefits of Dysport®
Dysport® offers several advantages for anyone who wants to diminish the look of aging without plastic surgery. Dysport® works on a variety of types of wrinkles, including those on the:
- brow (frown lines)
- eyes (crow’s feet)
The Dysport® procedure is very safe and has been used successfully on millions of patients with quick results. Much of the procedure relies not as much on the medicine, but on the skill of the person performing the injection. Typically, Dysport® is directly injected into the muscles, allowing them to relax. Oftentimes, we furrow our brows, make a scowling face or purse our lips without even being consciously aware of it. Over time, nerve impulses in those muscles tell them to stay contracted, which can in turn lead to the formation of wrinkles.
Dysport® injected directly into these muscles block those nerve signals without affecting other nerves and muscles in the face and neck, letting you fully express yourself without worrying about how you look to others.
Preparing for Dysport®
One of the best reasons to choose Dysport® injections is because of how quickly they’re done. No specific preparation is needed, however you should discontinue taking aspirin or blood thinners (upon permission from your physician) as these may increase the risk of bruising at the injection site. In addition, if you are a smoker, you should quit or refrain from smoking before having Dysport® injections done. Your physician at Plastic Surgery Associates will carefully evaluate you as a candidate for Dysport®, so be sure to tell them what medicines you are taking, including prescription or over-the-counter drugs.
Dysport® Procedure Recovery
Dysport® works over time to help minimize and erase wrinkles. You may experience some redness, tenderness, slight bruising or swelling after a Dysport® injection. This is generally limited to the treatment area and should resolve within 24 to 48 hours. After your Dysport® injection, you will notice your skin gradually start to improve and soften. You should schedule follow-up appointments to keep your skin looking younger as time goes on. Your physician at Plastic Surgery Associates will gladly advise you of an ideal treatment schedule for your specific needs.
