Dysport® for Men
DYSPORT® WRINKLE REDUCER FOR MEN
An increasing number of men are using a variety of injectable medications to address facial lines and wrinkles. At BAXT CosMedical® our patients have a choice of selecting BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®.
Our Board Certified Dermatologists are expert injectors and they use Dysport® to remove and soften facial frown lines and soften wrinkles.
What is Dysport® Made Of?
Dysport® is made from very small amounts of Clostridium botulinum, a naturally occurring protein that is refined from the bacterium. Dysport® is a prescription medication that is injected into the muscles. Dysport® is FDA approved to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe brow furors (frown lines) and wrinkles around the eyes.
MEN BEWARE of cheap or inexpensive Dysport® (too good to be true!). The main ingredient may be diluted. Also, be cautious of Dysport® injections done outside a physician’s office. There is a lot of artistic vision to injecting Dysport®.
What Areas are Treated With Dysport®?
The most common area of injections is between the eyebrows where adults frequently develop a furrow. This area responds extremely well. Crow's feet and forehead lines also respond well to Dysport®.
We are now using Dysport® in selected patients for "crinkling" of the lower eyelid, and for areas around the mouth. Dysport® also works well in our patients with troublesome neck bands.
Ask us about FDA approved Dysport® for hyperhidrosis. It works well to reduce sweating of the armpits.
What Can I Expect During and After Treatment?
The procedure is quick and it is done in the office with only slight discomfort*. After Dysport® you will be a bit puffy for about an hour or so, we will use ice in the office to reduce the swelling. If there is a bruise, you will usually be able to use cover up to minimize it. We recommend "taking it easy" for rest of the day after Dysport® i.e. no gym, working out, kickboxing, yoga, spin etc.
How Soon After Treatment Will I See Results and How Long do the Results Last?
Many patients see results within a few days. Peak results are 2-4 weeks. Dysport® tends to last for 3-4 months*. When applied in small amounts, Dysport® is FDA approved and extremely safe for cosmetic use. Please be advised that Dysport® injections are NOT a permanent treatment. Typically, every 3-6 months, a follow-up treatment will be necessary. However, with continuous treatments time between each treatment can lengthen and the results may last longer*.
What are the Side Effects of DYSPORT®?
Dysport® is FDA approved for cosmetic use and has many medical uses as well. For over a decade, Dysport® has proven to be one of the safest facial cosmetic enhancement treatments on the market. The main side effects of Dysport® are bruising and an occasional headache. Patients worry about eyelid droop. Eyelid droop is extremely rare, and if it happens it is temporary and often responds to special eye drops.
Are there other Similar Products to DYSPORT®?
At BAXT CosMedical® we also offer BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. Xeomin® is available upon request.
For optimal results Dysport® is best performed by experienced, appropriately certified injectors. Our Board Certified Dermatologists have performed thousands of Dysport® injections and can help determine the best treatment to achieve your facial rejuvenation goals. There is a lot of skill and artistic vision to injecting Dysport® so you want an experienced and properly trained injector, not someone who takes a weekend course, or injects in a salon, or private home “Botox party”.
