The Procedure

Dysport® injections are done in-office and are often done in less than 15 minutes. A small needle is used to inject Dysport® into the facial muscles to weaken wrinkle-prone muscles. The number of injections will depend on the individual’s cosmetic goals, though most patients receive between two and five injections.

Signs of facial aging begin in the thirties. Common areas include the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. These areas can all be treated with either BOTOX or Dysport. These medicines will stop the muscles from creating those wrinkles. The goal is to minimize lines and shadows on the face while restoring smooth skin, not overdo things.
