Dysport in Lehi, UT

As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. However, advancements in cosmetic medicine, like Dysport, can help. By relaxing facial muscles, Dysport smooths lines and softens wrinkles for a more youthful look. 

Avanti Medical Center in Lehi, UT, offers men and women several non-surgical options for rejuvenating the skin, including Dysport. Our Dysport treatments are tailored to meet the individual needs of our patients, ensuring that each person receives the most effective solution for their skin concerns.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is a neuromodulator that acts similarly to BOTOX® to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are created by reiterated facial movements and expressions (like laughing, frowning, and smiling) that over several decades make the muscles of the face taut. This causes the overlying skin to have a furrowed line that can be seen, even when your face is resting.

Dysport is uniquely formulated to treat the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. Administered via injection, Dysport temporarily relaxes the targeted muscles, smoothing out the skin above them. Dysport’s formulation is designed to spread a bit more than BOTOX, allowing for a more natural look in the treated areas. This makes it an excellent option for those looking to reduce severe frown lines without compromising their natural facial expressions.

What Is Dysport Used For?

Primarily employed for cosmetic purposes, Dysport is an injectable that targets glabellar lines, the wrinkles between the eyebrows. However, Dysport is quite versatile in its applications. For instance, using Dysport for crow’s feet can effectively diminish fine lines around the eyes, leading to a rejuvenated appearance.

In addition, the off-label technique known as the Dysport lip flip can subtly enhance the upper lip, creating a fuller look without increasing volume. From a medical standpoint, Dysport is also used to address conditions such as cervical dystonia, characterized by intense neck muscle spasms, as well as to relieve muscle spasticity in specific regions of the body.

What Are the Benefits of Dysport?

Dysport injections at Avanti Medical Center in Lehi, UT, offer the same great age-defying benefits as BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers with a few advantages, including:

  • Highly effective for glabellar lines (angry “11’s” between the brows)
  • Smooths a variety of lines and wrinkles
  • Works to help delay new lines and wrinkles from forming
  • Has long-lasting results
  • Often requires fewer injections
  • Typically works when BOTOX does not
  • Creates natural-looking results
  • More cost-effective

Who Is a Candidate for Dysport?

Dysport is ideal if you are looking for a non-surgical option to correct mild, moderate, or severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines that appear between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by repetitive use, they may become visible in younger patients and make you appear tired, mad, or sad. 

Candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the results, and not have any allergies to the ingredients in Dysport. Additionally, it is important for potential users to have no skin infections or other conditions at the injection sites. A consultation with us will help determine if Dysport is a safe and appropriate treatment option for you based on your medical history and aesthetic goals. 

What to Anticipate for Dysport Treatments

Our Injection Technique

Dysport injections are administered in one of our treatment rooms following your consultation with the skilled staff at Avanti, taking around 15 to 30 minutes. The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed, and five well-placed injections will be administered across the brow, followed by a cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising. Many patients see visible improvements in their appearance a few days after their treatment.  

What Should I Expect After a Dysport Treatment?

Following a Dysport treatment session, you may have light redness and swelling at and around the injection site, but this typically disappears in one to three days. You should sleep propped up for at least one night, and you may want to apply cold compresses as needed. 

Results are usually seen in a few days as the visibility of your lines is minimized for a smoother, softer appearance. These improvements should last for about three to four months, and follow-up injections can be done at Avanti Medical Center in Lehi, UT, to maintain your results.

Dysport FAQS

What’s the Difference Between Dysport and BOTOX?

BOTOX and Dysport both reduce signs of aging but may produce different results. Dysport results generally develop faster and cover larger areas than other wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX. The team at Avanti Medical Center can review the differences during your consultation and make suggestions based on your needs.

Should I Get Dysport or a Dermal Filler?

There are many options to choose from when it comes to anti-aging products. Wrinkle relaxers address dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive motions like smiling, laughing, and frowning. On the other hand, dermal fillers are a way to reduce fine lines by adding more volume to the face. One may be better than the other, depending on your cosmetic goals.

How Should I Prepare for a Dysport Treatment?

Before receiving Dysport, avoid alcohol for at least one week and anti-inflammatory medications or blood thinners for two days to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Discuss your full medical history with us to ensure Dysport is safe for you.

How Often Should I Get Dysport Injections?

Avanti Medical Center can help you determine what’s best for your skin. For most patients, it’s generally recommended to get repeat injections every three to four months to maintain results. We may recommend getting treatments more or less once we understand how Dysport works on your wrinkles.
