What to Expect When Getting Dysport Injections

Dysport is an injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, allowing the skin to relax and appear smoother. The effects of Dysport typically last for three to four months, and repeat injections are needed to maintain results. Complications are rare and usually temporary, but may include paralysis of a nearby muscle, resulting in temporary loss of function.

For most people, the effects of Dysport start to wear off three to four months after the visit. However, this is not all happening at once. Because of the way Dysport affects the muscle, the nerves will start to fire slowly again at first. In about 90% of people, it will go away in 3 to 6 months, depending on how much and where you have injected.

There are exceptions to this, but they are rare. It will last a little less when you first start it and a little longer as your muscles learn to relax.The duration of effectiveness of this treatment varies from patient to patient. It's important to follow our dermatologist's instructions and schedule regular touch-up appointments if needed. To get the most longevity and keep the cost per treatment low for cosmetic injection results, all you have to do is not let it go back to baseline.

Let's say that the first time you inject your lips, you decide that you need 2 vials of Volbella to make your lips look exactly the way you want. It's easier to process this concept if you think your injection product is like a piece of ice. If your lip filler is similar to an ice cube, the longer you have it, the more it melts and disperses. The smaller it gets, the faster it ultimately dissipates.

By adding more and increasing the volume of that piece of “ice”, you will slow down the melting process and prolong the effect of 2 vials with just one vial.If you need 45 units of Botox (or Dysport) regularly to achieve the desired results and wait until you regain your full range of motion before receiving the next treatment, you will likely still need (at least) 45 units at each subsequent visit. However, if you return as soon as you start to regain some movement, you should only need a fraction of that initial amount to get back to where you want to be.This advice is assuming you are receiving proper treatment right from the start. On average, Botox and Dysport results last 3 months, but many people try to lengthen the time between visits to save money, not realizing that this is causing the opposite effect. If you are the average person, it would be more beneficial for you to receive treatment every 3 months (like clockwork) before the product from your last visit has completely disappeared, rather than having to start the treatment process all over again from the baseline each time.

In most cases, visible changes associated with Dysport injections begin to appear a few days after the consultation. Although created to help minimize the appearance of glabellar lines, Dysport injections are also used to help treat fine lines and dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, nose and mouth, or on the neck, jaw and chin.If this is your first time getting Dysport injections, knowing what to expect is great at helping minimize the anxiety that often surrounds any needle procedure and the potential for discomfort. Dermal fillers can be safely combined with Dysport (or Botox) if it also involves dynamic and static wrinkles. Rest assured that there is nothing you can do to shorten the duration of the effects of Dysport if you're worried that you might accidentally spoil your results.

The creators of Dysport formulated the injectable specifically to help treat glabellar lines, which are the lines between the eyebrows that form between the eyebrows.Dysport helps prevent such movements from being so significant while helping to soften the skin.
