Dysport®, a prescription injectable medication containing botulinum toxin type A, is commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It works by relaxing the muscles, which helps to smooth out the skin and give it a more youthful appearance. Like BOTOX®, dysport® is often used in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. The treatment is quick and relatively painless, and results can typically be seen within a few days.

What to Expect at Your Dysport Appointment

At your Dysport appointment, you will begin with a consultation to discuss cosmetic goals and medical history. Your provider will create a personalized treatment plan, cleansing the area before administering Dysport through injections. Post-treatment care instructions may be given, and results, noticeable immediately, may take a few days to finalize. Your provider may discuss follow-up plans, and individuals can usually resume normal activities shortly after the session with minimal downtime.

Dysport Maintenance Recommendations

For effective maintenance after Dysport treatment, schedule follow-up appointments as recommended for result assessment and potential touch-ups. Regularly apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to extend the benefits, and adopt a healthy skincare routine with gentle products. Avoid harsh skincare items immediately post-treatment to prevent irritation. Ensure overall skin vitality by staying well-hydrated and maintaining a balanced lifestyle with proper nutrition, exercise, and sufficient sleep. Consider using dermatologist-recommended topicals tailored to your skin's needs and attend scheduled check-ins with your provider for ongoing skin assessment and care.

These appointments serve to assess the results of the treatment and determine if any touch-ups are needed. Additionally, incorporating a consistent skincare routine, including the regular use of broad-spectrum sunscreen, is essential to prolong the benefits of Dysport.
