What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works similarly to BOTOX to soften and reduce dynamic lines and wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial expressions and movements (like smiling, laughing, and frowning) that eventually make the facial muscles taut. This causes the skin over the muscle to have a grooved line that is visible, even when you are not making an expression. Dysport is specifically designed to correct the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. It temporarily blocks signals to the muscle so the line is smoother but with natural-looking results that don't make your face appear inanimate. Learn more about Dysport wrinkle relaxer treatments at Lincoln Park Aesthetics to help make your face appear refreshed and youthful.
Do I Qualify for Dysport?
Dysport is an appropriate choice in wrinkle relaxer treatments if you are looking for a nonsurgical way to smooth over your moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that flattens dynamic wrinkles without leaving you with a "frozen" face. Since Dysport spreads to reach a cluster of wrinkles, it's also great for Crow's feet, the small lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients at Lincoln Park Aesthetics see visible improvements in their dynamic wrinkles a few days following their injections.
"Maggie is the best for any and all Dysport needs! I have been going to her for about a year and have referred several people to her as well. She’s verrry gentle during the service itself, and she’s always honest about what she thinks will make you happiest. I’ve been to other med spas before and have ended up feeling taken advantage of or pressured (ie I was told I "need" 3 vials of fillers at another place when I was just in for Dysport!) Maggie and the staff there are always honest, kind, and patient! She’s a gem!!"- A.W. / Yelp / Jul 16, 2018
"Can’t say enough positive things about LPA ! Not a regular visitor to "Med-Spa’s" - so obviously a little apprehensive about booking... But after Micro-Needling and Ultherapy from Jenna and Dysport from Maggie could not be happier. Amazing staff and facility -"- R.M. / Yelp / Jul 10, 2016
"Maggie the Physician Assistant was so helpful to my overall Botox needs. She’s very thorough. She also gave me a better understanding of Botox and Dysport and explained which one would be more beneficial to me. I will continue to see her!"- R.G. / Yelp / Dec 20, 2015
"I just moved to the city and found LPA. I’m so happy that I discovered them! I see Rachel for dysport treatments and will absolutely be continuing to see her for any future skin-related treatments I may need. The whole team makes you feel welcome and comfortable and Rachel, in particular, is helpful, informative and patient. She will answer any questions you’ve got and make you feel right at home, even if you’re seeing her for the first time. Aside from the great environment, the services I’ve had done there have produced absolutely amazing results and I couldn’t be happier with my treatments. I highly recommend contacting LPA about any of their services!"- K.H. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2018
"I have just finished my second round of Dysport with Maggie at LPA and can say I am extremely happy with this clinic and my results! I’m in my early 30s and Dysport is never something I thought I would do or for that matter like. I love the way it smooths the resting lines in my forehead and I feel more confident in my new youthful look Maggie was super sweet too, she has a very calm way to her and took the time to answer my questions. After each appointment she suggested a follow up to check in on how things looked after a about a week. Love that she took the time to make sure I was happy with my results and her work! Thanks Maggie....I am hooked!"- J.S. / Yelp / Jun 25, 2018
Our Dysport Injection Technique
Dysport injections are performed in one of our discreet treatment rooms after your consultation with our aesthetics team, taking about 15 – 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or numbing cream is generally not needed because Dysport is injected using a fine needle that causes very little discomfort, but it can be requested. The skin will be cleaned, and several well-placed Dysport injections will be administered along the brow, followed with a cold compress to limit swelling and bruising. Following your injections at Lincoln Park Aesthetics, you are free to perform regular tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport treatment, you may have slight redness and swelling around the injection sites, but this generally will resolve within 1 – 3 days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and may want to apply cold compresses as needed. Improvements are commonly noticeable in a few days as the look of your lines is reduced for a softer, smoother appearance. Your results typically remain for around 3 – 4 months, and touch-up injections will be needed to maintain smooth skin once the injected Dysport has metabolized. During your initial consultation, your injector will suggest how often you should return to our office to sustain your results.
Deny wrinkles access to your skin
At Lincoln Park Aesthetics, we offer several aesthetic treatments that can be used to complement the results of your Dysport injections. Based on your concerns and goals, your custom plan may include Dysport for dynamic wrinkles, a filler for static lines or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a laser skin treatment. We encourage you to be open and honest during your initial consultation. Call Lincoln Park Aesthetics in Chicago, IL to learn more about Dysport, and make an appointment.
