Injectable products continue to grow in popularity among patients who want to smooth or prevent wrinkles. At West Sound Dermatology, we offer several injectable options for our Poulsbo, Washington patients to enhance their confidence. Dysport is available for dynamic wrinkles in the eye or forehead area. Patients can also earn aspire rewards for Dysport injections at our office.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator injectable, in the same category as Botox. The product works using the active ingredient Abobotulinumtoxin A. This means that while the formulation varies from Botox, Dysport works in a similar way by temporarily paralyzing muscles where it is injected.
What Can Dysport Treat?
Dysport is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles and fine lines which form when you make facial expressions such as squinting or smiling. The product is primarily used to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, or the “11 lines” which form directly between the eyebrows. Your expert provider at West Sound Dermatology may also recommend Dysport for other dynamic wrinkles such as horizontal forehead lines or crow’s feet. The product can also be used to prevent these wrinkles from forming or to stop fine lines from deepening and worsening over time.
Dysport injection results typically last about three to four months. After this point, you can receive routine maintenance injections to keep up your results. During a consultation, you can discuss all of your treatment options, including maintenance injection scheduling.
