Algonquin, IL patients discover Dysport treatments for fine lines and wrinkles
Posted by Dr. Vikram Khanna
Aging is a fact of life. Thankfully, there are treatment options available to help us age gracefully. Located in Algonquin, IL, Dr. Vic Khanna and the team at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois offer Dysport as a non-surgical treatment option to reduce the appearance of frown lines.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is used as an FDA-approved treatment option for moderate to severe frown lines in adults under the age of 65. As a neuromodulator, Dysport relaxes the facial muscles. This results in softening the appearance of lines along the glabella or between the eyebrows. Dysport gives you a natural look. The lines disappear but the rest of your face remains unchanged and you are still able to make expressions.
Treatment side effects and results
If you have ever had a Dysport, Xeomin, or Botox treatment, be sure to let your physician know so he can adjust your Dysport treatment accordingly. Dosages of Dysport differ from other neuromodulators so try not to compare the treatments in that sense. Treatments can be done in as little as ten to twenty minutes. While there may not be downtime associated with a Dysport treatment, some patients may experience localized bruising or swelling at the injection site. Other side effects may include headache, nose or throat irritation, or temporary eyelid swelling or drooping.
The advantages of Dysport include the following:
Softens frown lines between the eyebrows
Natural results rather than a frozen appearance
Visible results two to three days after treatment
Results last four to six months
