What is Dysport®?
Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxin A) is an injectable dermal filler that offers temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. For men and women who are seeking a natural look, Dysport® is proven to assist in smoothing the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is injected directly into the target facial sites, preventing underlying muscle tissue from contracting.
Why choose Dysport® at MD TLC™?
In the capable hands of an injector with an artistic eye like Dr. Quibell, patients who are appropriate candidates for this treatment will find that Dysport® can smooth wrinkles giving you a more youthful appearance.
Where can Dysport® be used?
Dysport® can safely and effectively treat dynamic etched facial lines and help combat static or permanent wrinkles that, over time, may make a person look older and slightly angry. Areas that can be addressed are:
- Forehead lines (horizontal lines that span over your eyebrows)
- Glabellar lines (the short vertical lines between your eyebrows, sometimes referred to as the 11’s)
- Around the eyes (also known as crow’s feet or laugh lines)
- On the bridge of the nose
- On the upper lip (vertical lines just beneath your nose)
- Masseter muscle (chewing muscle enlarged in some patients)
- Severe Frown (muscles that pull the mouth down)
- “Peach Pit Chin”
- Platysmal Bands in neck
What to expect during treatments?
Dysport® is injected into the skin through a fine needle with precision and care by Dr. Quibell, who is an internationally renowned educator and trainer of physicians. During this 10-15 minute procedure, most patients experience only mild discomfort, so Dr. Quibell may offer patient-controlled Pro-Nox™ or apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the session.
The amount of Dysport® used will vary, depending on the degree of the frown lines being addressed, which is unique to each patient. After the treatment is finished, you can return to normal activities immediately.
When will I see results?
Though results may vary, patients can typically see a noticeable improvement in their frown lines between 48 and 72 hours and full effect occurring within 8 to 10 days.
One Dysport® treatment is indicated to last for up to 4 months. For optimal ongoing results, Dysport® re-treatment should be scheduled every three to four months, with each appointment taking place before the effects from the previous one have fully faded.
