Dysport - For A More Youthful Look

Dysport is FDA-Approved and one of the most popular botulinum-toxin based products in the industry. Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles will still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. The actual injections can be done in a quick visit to Dr. Greenberg's office and does not require any downtime. This is great news for those patients with a very specific area to treat and busy routines!

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. If you are using Dysport to treat frown lines, Dr. Greenberg will inject the product into 5 points between and above your eyebrows. Face injections can always cause some discomfort to the patient. However, Dr. Greenberg will apply a numbing substance to minimize that sensation if needed. After the treatment, pain should be minimal and temporary.

Localized swelling, redness and itchiness can be expected, but don’t be afraid to ask your us about any concerns you may have. The actual injection procedure will not take more than 20 minutes. Typically, Dysport effects will last four months. Keep in mind that you should not get a second session before 90 days. No downtime is required after Dysport injections. There is no reason why you cannot resume your daily activities afterwards!
