Dysport® is a Botox® alternative that patients can use to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. At Eko Plastic Surgery, we offer this treatment to patients living in and around La Quinta, Palm Desert and Palm Springs, CA.
Dysport® is an injection of a neuromuscular blocking toxin that blocks nerve signals to prevent muscle contraction and the resulting wrinkling or banding of skin. Dysport® is effective on horizontal forehead lines, the wrinkles on the side of the eyes (crow’s feet), and glabellar frown lines that form between the eyebrows. Compared to Botox®, Dysport® is a bit cheaper, shows results faster, and may last a little longer. It may also be an effective replacement for patients who build up resistance to Botox®.
The cost of your Dysport® treatment at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
The Dysport® treatment is performed using a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Once the skin is numbed, Dysport® will be injected into and around the desired treatment area. The exact location and number of these injections will depend on your unique treatment goals. This process takes less than 30 minutes. After the treatment, you may notice some mild swelling or redness in the treatment areas, but there will be no downtime required. You will be able to resume work and other normal activities immediately.
You will begin to notice results from your Dysport® treatment after any side effects fade and the Dysport® formula begins to take effect. Most patients begin to notice results within a few days of treatment, with full results becoming visible well under a week after treatment.
The results from a Dysport® treatment typically last about four to six months. After this time, patients can easily receive additional treatments to maintain their results. Patients often find that their results begin to last longer after receiving repeated treatments.
