It is extremely common for patients to complain that certain wrinkles cause them to look much older than they feel. This is common around the eyes “crow’s feet” and between the brows “frown lines.” While most patients don’t mind having some wrinkles, it’s the more prominent or deep wrinkles that are the most troubling. Dysport™ can help to soften the appearance of these wrinkles, while creating a more youthful appearance. Dysport™ works by weakening the signal that is passed between the brain and the muscle; which softens these overly strong facial expressions or “wrinkles.” As the severe pull of the muscle relaxes, the overlying skin ultimately flattens and smoothes. Dysport® does not completely stop all of the movement in the area in which it is injected. Many people who have never had treatment may be concerned about having no wrinkles or appearing frozen. Fortunately a natural and conservative approach to wrinkle reduction is actually best achieved using either Botox® or Dysport®. It will soften lines and reduce deep wrinkles, while still allowing you to remain full of expression. This approach is different than other injectable treatments such as Restylane® and Juvederm®, which work by “filling” or “plumping” wrinkles or deep depressions.
Receiving Dysport® injections at our clinic in Oakville, Ontario is a very simple and comfortable procedure. The treatment involves a simple series of injections into the area of concern by either Dr. Sapra or a highly skilled and trained Nurse Injector. There is often minimal to no downtime; however, there is always a risk of getting a small bruise. The effects of Dysport™ are visible after approximately 5–10 days and can last for approximately 3–4 months.
To find out if Dysport® treatment is right for you, please contact our knowledgeable staff at our Oakville office, between Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario for your complimentary consultation. Dr. Sheetal Sapra and our nursing staff will be able to provide you with all of the information you need to make the most informed decision.
Since Dysport® is considered a drug, the suitability of this treatment can only be determined at the time of consultation once in our clinic. There are specific risks that will also be fully explained to you at this time, in order to determine if you would be a suitable candidate for treatment.
