Dysport is a BOTOX alternative. The cosmetic treatment is beneficial to patients who no longer experience the full effects of BOTOX. It is one of the newest treatment offerings available to people in Washington, DC who want to combat signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment works by relaxing the muscles between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes. The final results are more soft and natural when compared to other treatments, providing a youthful and less strained appearance.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is used for cosmetic purposes in order to minimize the appearance of certain types of wrinkles on the face. Some of the many benefits of Dysport include:
Useful for Patients Who are Not Responsive to BOTOX
Patients who have used BOTOX for an extended period of time sometimes develop an immune response that renders the treatments ineffective. This is caused by the natural breakdown of the product by the body’s immune system. When the solution is broken down, the body also develops antibodies to counteract it. As a patient’s body’s antibodies increase, the effectiveness of its treatment decreases. Dysport uses less protein, and, thus, it causes a milder immune response. The treatment is great for patients who no longer benefit from BOTOX.
The low protein concentration of this product is one of its strengths. It allows the injected treatment to spread very nicely.
The wrinkles treated with Dysport are corrected via injection. Minimal amounts of Dysport are needed to achieve maximum results. The treatment itself is simple and convenient.
