Tackle the early signs of aging with Dysport® at BotoxRN in Houston & Sugar Land
The early signs of aging are an annoying part of life that we all experience at some point. Over the course of time, it’ll eventually steal away our youthful good looks and leave us looking much older than we feel. At BotoxRN in Houston, we specialize in fighting back the early signs of aging with wrinkle reduction treatments using Dysport®.
What Are Dysport Injections and How Do They Work?
Dysport® is an injectable neurotoxin toxin designed to relax the facial muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport® differs from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in that it spreads further from the injection site than BOTOX®, making it better suited for treating larger areas.
Dysport injections are a cosmetic treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin. A small amount of Dysport is injected directly into the muscle, which causes it to relax and smooth out the skin above it.
Dysport vs Botox: Are They the Same Thing?
Botox and Dysport are both cosmetic treatments made from botulinum toxin, but they have different uses. Dysport is primarily used for correcting frown lines between the eyebrows, while Botox can be used to treat many different types of wrinkles. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, so more product may be needed depending on the location of the injection.
The Benefits of Dysport®
Dysport® and other neurotoxins work by relaxing facial muscles, allowing the skin to lie smooth and wrinkle-free.
Treatment with Dysport® is a very quick, in-office procedure that causes only minimal discomfort (typically compared to an insect bite). Little to no downtime is required, so you can get back to your usual activities immediately.
Results should be visible in 1 to 2 days and will last for up to 6 months. The procedure is easily repeatable, so you can keep your youthful-looking results fresh.
Many people choose to combine their Dysport® treatments with dermal fillers such as Restylane® Injectable Gel. Dermal fillers can add volume to smooth folds and restore youthful facial fullness. Others choose skin resurfacing techniques such as DiamondGlow® or Fraxel.
Dysport Injections for Forehead: How Many Units Do You Need?
Dysport is an injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck. It can be particularly beneficial in treating moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the forehead. Dysport is similar to Botox, another popular injectable treatment for wrinkles. The amount of Dysport needed for forehead wrinkles varies depending on their severity, but it can range from 30 to 60 units.
How Much Does a Dysport® Treatment Cost?
The cost of every cosmetic procedure is different from patient to patient and depends on the amount of correction needed to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Our Dysport® treatment is $3.25 per unit and the amount you pay will depend on the number of units needed to achieve your aesthetic goals. We’ll go over the details further during a consultation.
Does Dysport Hurt? What to Expect During the Injection
Dysport injections typically cause minimal pain and discomfort. Some patients may experience stinging, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site, but these side effects are usually mild and temporary. Common side effects of Dysport include headache, injection site pain, and bruising.
How Many Dysport Units Per Area? A Dosage Guide
Dysport dosage varies depending on the area being treated. For example, the dose for treating glabellar lines in adults is a total of 50 units given intramuscularly in five equal aliquots of 10 units each. Dysport is also used to treat spasticity, and the dosing for this depends on the specific muscles being treated. The number of units per injection site is calculated by dividing the number of units per vial by the dilution in mL.
How Much Dysport for Lip Flip?
The amount of Dysport needed for a lip flip varies from person to person and should be determined by a skilled cosmetic or plastic surgeon. Generally, up to 10 units of Dysport are needed per side to achieve the desired effect.
How Much Dysport for Masseter?
The median dose of Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA, Medicis) for the masseter muscle is 40 units. This is equivalent to 12 units of Dysport per side or 4 units of Botox per side. 3 Dysport units are equal to about one Botox unit.
Depending on the patient, anywhere between 45 and 90 units of Dysport may be used, with higher doses sometimes necessary.
Can Dysport Cause Hair Loss?
Dysport does not cause hair loss. In fact, it may stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the follicle. However, Dysport can cause other side effects such as muscle weakness and drooping eyelids.
Where Can I Get Dysport Near Me?
You can find Dysport injections at various med spas and clinics near you. The best option is BotoxRN, which offers Dysport injections in Houston. It is important to ensure that the RN injecting the Dysport has proper training and works under the supervision of a physician.
How Long Does It Take for Dysport to Show Results?
Dysport starts working immediately, and most patients experience results appearing after 2-3 days. The initial results of treatment can be seen within 48 hours of injection, but it may take up to one week before you can see full temporary muscle paralysis. Individual results may vary.
Can Dysport Cause Droopy Eyelids?
Injections of Dysport can cause droopy eyelids, also known as ptosis or blepharoptosis. This is usually due to excessive muscle relaxation after the procedure, and can be caused by improper application or spread to undesired areas. Fortunately, eyelid drooping caused by Dysport will resolve on its own without treatment, usually within 4 – 12 weeks.
How Many Units of Dysport for 11s?
The amount of Dysport needed for 11s varies, but it is typically around 60 units. Some sources suggest that the average person needs around 52 units of Dysport or 26 units of Botox for 11s, while some have reported using as little as 20 units. The amount needed may also depend on other factors such as age and the severity of the lines.
