Dysport is a new, preferred alternative to Botox. It is a popular treatment that has been used for over 20 years in Europe. Dysport is favored over Botox among many physicians due to its quicker onset and longer lasting result. It is designed to soften moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. This popular, non-surgical injection temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, and crows feet near the eyes. The medicine blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles so that the skin has a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
It’s never too late to catch those lines and wrinkles early and prevent them from developing or becoming more deeply defined. Dysport has proven to show quicker onset then Botox (as soon as 24-48 hours). There is no downtime. Some patients may experience slight bruising.
Generally, results last 3-6 months, and may vary among individuals.
Dr. Karampahtsis has been an injector of neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport since 2004. He has performed over five thousand treatments in the valley and he is known for his skill to create a natural look and never an “overdone” appearance. Most patients comment about his gentle injection technique that minimizes any discomfort during treatment.
**You should not have Dysport treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or at all if you have a neuromuscular disease.
