DYSPORT is considered to be a serious weapon in a war against the wrinkles. You may ask why? Because the practice has shown that even facial plastic surgery does not eliminate the appearance of “crows feet” and other lines and folds. It is precisely those small, medium and deep wrinkles that begin to change our face beyond recognition, making its expression tired and older. Dysport injections, which have long been used in cosmetic practice to quickly erase wrinkles, have become a very popular and extremely worthy alternative to a plastic surgery.
WHAT ARE DYSPORT INJECTIONS?
All facial muscles are attached to the skin at one end. When we smile, talk or make some other facial expressions, muscles contract. In youth, a high degree of elasticity of the skin provides its tone, but with age, the tone decreases, and mimic movements lead to the formation of folds and wrinkles.
DYSPORT is a variety of neuroparalytic poison, which is used in aesthetic medicine in a safe for health concentration. But even in a tiny dose, this toxin, when released into tissue, is able to inhibit the action of acetylcholine, which is responsible for stimulation of muscles’ contraction. Due to this, for a particular period the muscles remain in a state of flaccid paralysis, and for some time wrinkles just disappear. Once the effects of DYSPORT injections start kicking in, a patient loses an ability to frown or squint as before.
For 20 years DYSPORT has been actively used in aesthetic medicine for the correction of involutional facial changes. DYSPORT was the first European analogue of the American drug Botox. It is registered in most countries of the world and allowed for use in cosmetic purposes to correct facial contours, asymmetry; prevent severe scarring after surgery; treat vegetative syndromes in the face (for example, lacrimation, Frey’s syndrome) as well as smooth such lines and wrinkles of the face as Glabella and Crow’s Feet.
AREAS TARGETED BY DYSPORT
Wrinkle correction in the upper third of the face (glabella, horizontal lines, brows, “crow’s feet”) with a use of DYSPORT is the most popular.
Using DYSPORT within zones of the middle and lower third of the face includes such treatments as:
- correction of the back and the tip of the nose
- eliminating bunny lines
- reduction of nasolabial folds
- chin and cheek wrinkle correction.
DYSPORT can be also used in complex therapy to eliminate horizontal neck wrinkles and relax neck tendons. It is perfectly acceptable to combine DYSPORT with biorevitalization, mesotherapy and other rejuvenating procedures.
Contraindications for DYSPORT are determined by the following conditions:
- Acute and chronic infectious skin diseases at the injection site
- Acute forms of other somatic diseases
- The presence of a chronic infection in the body
- Muscle weakness (myasthenia)
- Problems with the process of blood clotting
- Pregnancy and lactation
- Disorders of the endocrine system.
SIDE EFFECTS AND COMPLICATIONS AFTER DYSPORT
In some cases, after DYSPORT injections, there is a feeling of stiffness in the face.
DYSPORT can also cause such complications as drooping of the eyelids known as ptosis, deformation of the nasolabial fold, raising of the eyebrows, edema and hematomas. These complications happen mainly due to the insufficient qualifications of the cosmetologist or their inadequate knowledge of anatomy. Such complications can last from 2 – 3 days to several weeks. Therefore, in order to avoid side effects and complications, it is necessary to carefully choose a specialist and clinic, preferring the quality of the procedure to its cost.
EFFECT AFTER DYSPORT INJECTION
The effect of DYSPORT injection gradually increases with time and reaches its maximum in about 10-15 days after the procedure. All fine, medium lines and deep wrinkles should become less visible. Patient reviews suggest that it is possible to eliminate signs of aging and even out skin texture with a use of this non-invasive treatment instead of going under the knife.
Results of the first DYSPORT procedure last up to 3-4 months and in case of the second and subsequent procedures up to 6-8 months.
