As we get older and wrinkles begin to appear, many people look for ways to reduce these signs of age and achieve a more youthful appearance again.

Dysport injections in NYC at JUVA Skin & Laser Center are designed to do just that. Using an FDA-approved formula, Dysport safely smooths and softens facial lines and wrinkles and helps you achieve a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable treatment that is similar to BOTOX. It is designed to target crow’s feet, frown lines, the 11’s between the eyes, neck creases, and relax platysmal neck bands.

Dysport works by relaxing contracted muscles that hold wrinkles in place on your face, creating a more youthful and pleasant appearance. Wrinkles and lines appear because of contracted muscles that allow you to express yourself by making the same, repeated movements over and over again. Over time, these muscles begin to stay in their contracted form, which causes wrinkles to appear. Dysport temporarily relaxes the contracted muscles, which softens the lines and wrinkles. 

The injections are done very precisely, only targeting the specific muscles that are causing wrinkles. This ensures that you retain the ability to express yourself and look natural. In the past, inexpert BOTOX injections caused some patients to have a more frozen look. Done correctly, BOTOX gives you a range of expressions and movements but fades the wrinkles at the same time. Dysport gives even more of a range of motion because it diffuses more evenly and quickly.

What happens during a Dysport treatment?

You’ll start with a consultation, and we will examine your skin and discuss your concerns. You’ll have a chance to get any questions you may have about Dysport answered. 

Once the treatment begins, you will receive precise, careful injections only into the significant muscles that are causing the wrinkles. Dysport treatments are nearly painless because the needle used is extremely fine. The treatment session will take about 20 minutes.

After the injections are complete, we will have you make various facial expressions to help the Dysport settle into the treated area. The results are extremely effective and the treatment produces minimal side effects.

Recovery and Results

Dysport requires no downtime and very minimal recovery. You can go about your day and do your usual activities after your treatment. For a couple of days, avoid very hot showers or steam rooms, bending over, tanning, or heavy exercise.

You will see the results of your treatment immediately and the full effect can take up to about a week. These results last for about four months.

  • Muscle weakness near the treated area
  • Brusing, bleeding, pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site

How much does Dysport cost?

The cost depends on the amount of Dysport you need to achieve your aesthetic goals and which areas are being treated.
