A lifetime of making facial expressions leaves a mark on your skin. Wrinkles that form around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead make patients look older than they would like. Dysport is a cosmetic wrinkle injection that prevents expression lines so you can look younger and well-rested in every photo you take.
With Dysport Denver residents can capture all the happy memories that make life wonderful, without worrying about fine lines and wrinkles that make us appear aged. Rejuvenate proudly offers the latest non-surgical wrinkle treatments, including Dysport, Botox at our medspas in Denver, Golden and Colorado Springs.
Dysport is a Botox alternative that is injected into facial muscles that control facial expressions. Once injected, the active ingredient in Dysport relaxes the muscle so it does not contract, leaving the skin smooth and wrinkle-free for up to several months at a time.
Easily prevent wrinkles by using Dysport in the following areas:
At our medspa in Denver Dysport is used to treat dynamic wrinkles that form as a result of making facial expressions. It is not suitable for static wrinkles, which are permanently etched into the skin. How can you tell the difference? It’s easy. Furrow your eyebrows as if you are angry, and notice if the 11 lines between the brows disappear a few hours later. If you have wrinkles on the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), smile and notice if the wrinkles smooth out after a while. The same can be done for forehead wrinkles by raising your eyebrows.
Another way to tell if you have dynamic wrinkles is to look in the mirror immediately after you wake up in the morning. Since you are unlikely to make facial expressions while asleep, an absence of wrinkles in the a.m. means you have dynamic wrinkles that can be easily treated with Dysport injections.
Dysport has a lighter formulation, so more units are required to see comparable results to Botox. Each Dysport unit is cheaper for this reason. The FDA recommends at least two units of Dysport to equal one unit of Botox. However, in practical experience, most patients really need three Dysport units to achieve the results of Botox. While Dysport is less costly per unit, the total cost of treatment works out to about the same as Botox — with the final cost of Dysport often being slightly less.
Botox and Dysport are very similar, but there are a few key differences:
At Rejuvenate, we offer Botox, Dysport, and another alternative to Botox. Both Botox and Dysport are FDA approved to work after succeeding in rigorous clinical trials. Deciding between Botox and Dysport is a personal choice. Our diamond-level RN and PA injectors can help you decide which is best for you at the consultation. In rare cases, some patients do not respond to the active ingredient in Botox. If you have tried Botox in the past and found that Botox didn’t work for you, then Dysport is an excellent alternative.
Like Botox, Dysport treatment is fast and easy! The injections are not painful, but a brief sensation of discomfort that lasts a few seconds is normal upon injection. It only takes a few minutes to administer Dysport. A fine needle is used so injections are more comfortable.
A topical anesthetic is not usually necessary but can be used to numb your skin prior to treatment by request. Our nurse injectors have a gentle hand and want you to feel comfortable during treatment, as well as deliver a great Dysport result that always looks natural. Dysport is a lunchtime treatment, so you can return to work and daily activities immediately with no downtime.
Dysport is a hugely popular Botox alternative that has clinically proven results, even in the majority of patients that are resistant to the ingredients in Botox.
