DYSPORT® INJECTIONS IN LAS VEGAS FROM CHIC LA VIE MED SPA
WHAT IS DYSPORT®?
Dysport® is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. Injection of Dysport® into specific muscles in the face help to smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines that are often common between the eyebrows, without changing the look or movement ability of the rest of the patients face.
It is the perfect injection for creating a “natural” look while eliminating those unsightly wrinkles.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DYSPORT® AND BOTOX®?
Dysport® is a new alternative to Botox that has recently entered the U.S. market. Although it’s similar to Botox®, it has a few key differences that make it more ideal for certain procedures, or for certain patients.
Both types of injections use the neurotoxin to gain results. The neurotoxin, which was used for other medical treatments, provided wonderful side benefits, including controlling the movements of the muscles. When injected this neurotoxin helps to “shut down” the movements that cause wrinkles. In essence, the toxin helps to “relax” the face right where you need it.
When the muscles are relaxed, the skin around them can stay smooth. Although this treatment doesn’t permanently erase wrinkles, Dysport® injections will help make them less noticeable.
HOW DOES DYSPORT WORK?
When injected into 5 specific points between and above the eyebrows, patients experience relief of muscle contractions, which are the cause of the frown lines, leaving the rest of the muscles in the face to move naturally. You may have ever seen someone who has a “frozen” look on their face following a procedure, and Dysport helps to prevent this, and patients end up with natural-looking results.
HOW DO WRINKLES FORM?
There is no getting around it, we all age, and with that comes changes in our skin. And, having healthy younger-looking skin can truly make a difference in a person’s appearance, self-esteem, and happiness.
As we age, we can start to experience the tell-tale signs of the changes in our skin, including wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and pigmentation issues.
There can be many causes of wrinkles and other unwanted skin conditions, including:
- Excessive exposure to the Sun
- Loss of Collagen
- Production of less Sebum (oil)
- The natural decline in blood vessels – less circulation
- Loss of subcutaneous tissue, making the skin thinner
- Repeated facial expressions
- Sleeping positions
- Environmental Issues – Pollution
WHAT ARE CROWS FEET?
Those unwanted and slightly lines and wrinkles that develop around the eyes from smiling, squinting and laughing are often referred to as Crows Feet. For the non-surgical treatment of crow’s feet, specialists inject three regions in the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye.
Because Dysport® temporarily reduces the activity in the muscle, the effect is a reduction in the appearance of those lines that cause the crow’s feet.
Although Botox® is primarily used to reduce skin wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles, it can also be used to create a lifting effect. There are two groups of muscles on the face that have opposite effects – the ones that pull the skin down (depressors) and those that pull it up (levators). By preferentially blocking the depressor muscles trained and experienced injectors can help lift the skin for a more improved appearance.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY PROCEDURE?
Our experienced medical team will inject the Dysport® into 5 points between and above your eyebrows using a very tiny needle. The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes or so and is relatively painless. You will be asked to not wear a hat or lay down for a few hours following the procedure.
WHEN WILL I START TO SEE RESULTS?
Patients will begin to see visible reductions in wrinkles and fine lines following the injecting of Dysport® into the muscles typically between 2-4 days.
HOW LONG WITH THE RESULTS LAST?
Every patient is different however results have shown that the injection of Dysport® can produce results for up to 4 months. In addition, the results of your first treatment can be similar for the following treatments!
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO DYSPORT®?
Like most medical treatments there are some instances where the use of Dysport® is contradicted. Dysport® injections are safe when performed by an experienced medical professional, like the professionals here at Chic la Vie Med Spa. However, possible side effects and complications may include:
- Swelling, Bruising or Pain at the Injection Site
