Considering medspa treatments but aren’t sure which is the best for you? Thinking about Dysport but not really sure what it is? At Pure Luxe Medical we aim to not only provide you with the best treatment options available, but also aim to help you make the most educated decision possible.
With that being said, here are 9 things to know about Dysport before treatment:
#1 – What is Dysport?
Dysport is a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. The lines disappear, not your expressions.
#2 – How long does a Dysport treatment take?
While the actual time varies case by case and depends greatly on the details of the treatment, generally, patients are in and out of the medical spa within a half hour to hour at most with no downtime.
#3 – Is a Dysport treatment painful?
Dysport typically has minimal side effects and in most cases, the process is not very painful. The short lived swelling and redness can heal rather quickly as well.
#4 – When will I see results?
As the redness and swelling from the injections subside, you will slowly begin to see results. It’s important to remember that it takes time and everyone heals differently. You will see the true results after a few days. That being said, if you are planning a treatment for an event in which you want to look your best, make sure to schedule your treatment at least two weeks in advance to give yourself ample time to heal and look your absolute best.
#5 – How long does the treatment last?
Dysport treatments can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. After, you will begin to see motion in the treated areas again. Regular upkeep and touch ups are required to maintain the treatment effects.
#6 – Do I need to tell the doctor about any medications I am taking?
Yes, absolutely, yes. As a rule of thumb, if you are ever having any medical treatment, always tell your doctor everything. Some medications such as Tylenol and other Ibuprofens can thin the blood and make the side effects of the treatment appear more severe than they actually are. Blood thinning also increases the time it would normally take to heal. Make sure to consult your doctor about any medication you are taking prior to the procedure so that the correct precautionary measure can be taken with time.
#7 – How do I know if the treatment is right for me?
In most cases, if you have normal skin and minimal to no allergies, your skin will respond well to Dysport treatments. If you are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients, are allergic to cow’s milk protein, or have previously had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, consult your doctor in advance and protect yourself from any negative side effects that may occur from the treatment.
If you have had surgical changes to your face that have caused changes to the sides of your face, weak muscles in the treatment areas, deep facial scars, or thick oily skin, Dysport may not be the best treatment option for you. But, as always, consult us first and together we can weigh in on the best treatment options for you.
#8 – Is Dysport the same as other botulinum toxin products such as Myobloc or Botox?
No, Dysport is not the same dose as any of the other botulinum toxin products and a dose of Dysport cannot be compared to a any other botulinum toxin product you may have used in the past.
#9 – How much do Dysport treatments cost?
Treatment costs range from medical spa to medical spa, and the size and quantity of the treatment affects the price as well. If you’re looking to try it out, now is the time: Pure Luxe Medical is running a special promotion on Dysport. See more details here.
