Big news at Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness in Glen Carbon, IL! We are now offering Dysport for treating moderate to severe frown lines. At Ooh La La we aim to not only provide you with the best treatment options available, but also aim to help you make the most educated decision possible.
With that being said, here are 8 things to know about Dysport before treatment:
#1 – What is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. The lines disappear, not your expressions.
#2 – What if I’m already getting Botox?
If you’re already getting Botox and seeing great results, there is no reason to switch to Dysport. We want to stick with what works for you!
#3 – How long does a Dysport treatment take?
While the actual time varies case by case and depends greatly on the details of the treatment, generally, patients are in and out within 30-60 minutes at their first Dysport appointment so that we can establish care and create a treatment plan best suited to YOU. For any follow-up appointments, it will usually be around 15 minutes.
#4 – Is a Dysport treatment painful?
Dysport typically has minimal side effects and in most cases, the process is not very painful. The short-lived swelling and redness will heal relatively quickly.
#5 – When will I see results?
As the redness and swelling from the injections subside, you will slowly begin to see results. It’s important to remember that it takes time and everyone heals differently. You will see the true results after a few days. That being said, if you are planning a treatment for an event in which you want to look your best, make sure to schedule your treatment at least two weeks in advance to give yourself ample time to heal and look your absolute best.
#6 – How long does the treatment last?
Dysport treatments can last anywhere from 3 to 4 months. After, you will begin to see motion in the treated areas again. Regular upkeep and touch ups are required to maintain the treatment effects.
#7 – How do I know if the treatment is right for me?
In most cases, if you have normal skin and minimal to no allergies, your skin will respond well to Dysport treatments. If you are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients, are allergic to cow’s milk protein, or have previously had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, consult your doctor in advance and protect yourself from any negative side effects that may occur from the treatment.
#8 – Is Dysport the same as Botox?
No, Dysport is not the same dose as any of the other botulinum toxin products and a dose of Dysport cannot be compared to a any other botulinum toxin product you may have used in the past.
