We believe in giving our patients options for how we treat their skin. In addition to advanced products like Dysport®, our patients benefit from a high level of dermatologic expertise through which we help them identify the products and treatments that will help them achieve their desired look in the fastest way possible.
Dysport®, like XEOMIN®, is an alternative treatment to BOTOX®. Approved by the FDA in 2009, this drug has helped millions of men and women feel better about their appearance. Dysport® comes to us from Medicis, the same company that makes Perlane and Restylane, trusted dermal fillers. This is an important factor to us because we are committed to bringing our patients only the very best, safest products.
How Dysport® Works
The various wrinkles that develop on the face come from different factors. Lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth are often the result of volume loss. Concerns like frown lines and crow’s feet are the result of our overuse of muscles on the upper part of the face.
Dysport® affects the nicotinic nerve endings of contracted muscles. Small doses of this medication inhibit acetylcholine neurotransmitter vesicles from communicating with targeted muscles, thereby leading to continual relaxation beneath the surface of the skin.
Uses of Dysport®
Many patients begin treatment with Dysport® before they notice significant signs of aging. This is a wonderful solution for those who want to get an early start on their anti-aging routine. If you live in the Tampa area, we are happy to consult with you about your goals. Dr. Lombardi crafts customized skin care plans around individual patients to produce the most satisfying results.
Dysport® is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles on the upper area of the face. The gentle nature of this treatment makes it suitable to combine with other procedures such as resurfacing or dermal filler injections. Using precise techniques, we can give your face the lift that you have been seeking.
Dysport® is a product that has a progressive effect on dynamic wrinkles, those that occur because of facial expressions. While it is common to notice an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles in the first few days after treatment, optimal results are seen two weeks after treatment. The relaxing effect of Dysport® on muscles can last as long as four months. Beyond this time, patients may schedule touch-up treatments to retain their youthful appearance.
