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.

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.

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.
