At ZenLife MD, we’re committed to a holistic outlook on health and beauty when it comes to our patients. For us, few things are more important than developing a comprehensive treatment to improve your quality of life, whether that’s getting a healthier lifestyle or managing the signs of aging.
Why choose us?
Dysport injections fall under the category of botulinum toxin treatments, which are injectable therapies that are administered directly to a muscle group. They work by blocking the neurotransmitters in your muscles, which prevent muscle contraction and muscle movement long-term. Botulinum toxin treatments are known by many brands, as there’s more than one type of botulinum toxin treatment used for medical and cosmetic applications.
With careful and consistent application to your skin, ZenLife MD can help manage even the most severe of glabellar lines and wrinkles without putting too much strain on your body. We always work closely with our patients during their treatment, not only to ensure their safety but to also monitor the efficacy of their overall treatment.
Dysport is not the only solution you can get for treating glabellar or forehead lines – it’s not even the only type of botulinum toxin product that you can use! However, there are plenty of reasons why Dysport has consistently made itself a preference for people looking for treatment for facial lines and wrinkles.
Dysport uses a different type of active ingredient for its botulinum toxin, specifically abobotulinumtoxin A. This type of toxin works best with severe to deep lines and wrinkles, which often characterize most cases of glabellar and forehead lines.
Unlike plastic surgery or liposuction, all you need is a simple injection to fully enjoy the benefits of Dysport. No cuts, no downtime, just an afternoon between you and your provider.
Dysport has the full approval of the US Food And Drug Administration, as it’s passed all the required safety standards for cosmetic use. It also has FDA approval for use on other medical conditions, like cervical dystonia or limb spasticity.
Dysport starts working the moment it’s injected into your skin, with visible results within two days of your treatment. However, it’s also a procedure that you should repeat over time if you want to ensure your results stick around.
All you need is a few hours and some injections to enjoy the benefits of Dysport treatment. There’s very little that you need to prepare for the injection, and even less that you need to do after it’s done.
Dysport can also work with other facial injectables such as dermal filler without interfering with their effects. This allows it to be used as a supporting cosmetic treatment to other injectables, as well as conventional methods of wrinkle and line removal.
Overall, Dysport treatments have passed the safety standards for regular use in adults, as long as they’re a viable candidate for the procedure. Most clinical trials also back up the efficacy and safety of Dysport treatments, especially if administered by an experienced provider.
However, that isn’t to say that the process is entirely smooth. Like many cosmetic treatments, Dysport injections can have mild to moderate side effects, which patients need to consider before undergoing treatment. These include (but are not limited to):
Fortunately, most of these side effects are mild and should resolve within the very day of the treatment or after a few days of bed rest. More serious complications from Dysport treatments are possible, but if you’ve found an experienced provider, you’re unlikely to experience any of these side effects.
While Dysport is undoubtedly safe and effective for both medical and cosmetic applications, the reason why it’s so important to find a trained and experienced provider is that it’s the best way for you to get the most out of your treatment.
Given that glabellar lines are an issue that everyone will develop someday, is there some merit in using Dysport for preventative treatments? While Botox injections are more commonly used with this in mind, medical studies and clinical trials have concluded that Dysport can also be used as a preventative treatment, especially with the administration of an experienced injector.
Preventative Dysport treatment is possible, but only if your provider recommends it. It requires a lot of training and experience to be able to use Dysport preventively, as it relies on predicting exactly how your forehead lines and glabellar lines will develop. At times, this kind of treatment can be more of an art than science.
But if you find the right provider, they’ll be able to help you through the process with no trouble at all – and you can continue to live the rest of your days worry-free and wrinkle-free.
While it’s best known as a method of helping manage severe lines and wrinkles, Dysport has medical applications as well. These include:
By relaxing the neck muscles that cause the involuntary twisting and turning of your head, Dysport treatments can stabilize your head and prevent any possible damage to the delicate areas around your neck and spine.
Relaxing the muscle groups involved in involuntary spasms can also keep your limbs in the right position without the need for orthopedic solutions like braces or splints, though these can still be used with the advice of your doctor.
A: While Dysport treatment is classified as a non-invasive procedure that’s limited to one area, you should always have your injections done by a trained and experienced injector. Because the glabella is so close to crucial organs like the eyes or areas like the sinus system, any inexperienced attempt at injecting Dysport injections is far more likely to end up with adverse side effects or serious medical complications.
A: Dysport is a cosmetic procedure that has enjoyed a high rate of success, patient satisfaction, and safety in young adults and older adults alike. With the oversight of an experienced injector, you’re highly unlikely to encounter any side effects, especially for long-term treatment plans. Just remember to report back for your repeat treatments, and your results should remain satisfactory.
A: As the majority of Dysport treatments (or botulinum toxin injections) are applied to cosmetic concerns, most medical insurers and medical plans will not cover the costs of the procedure. However, medical applications may still be reimbursed depending on the specifics of your insurance provider.
A: Your wrinkles won’t appear back overnight if you miss a day with your Dysport injections – at most, you have a few days to a week before your body starts moving the relaxed muscles again. We highly encourage you to stick to your agreed-upon Dysport injection schedule to prevent any complications from happening.
