Dysport is one of the newest types of muscle relaxant injections. Like Botox, it contains a purified and diluted form of the botulinum toxin. This treatment relaxes facial muscles in order to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. It is commonly used to treat laugh lines, frown lines, forehead creases, and other facial wrinkles caused by repetitive movement of the facial muscles. This injectable treatment works by temporarily blocking signals from the nerves to the facial muscles, causing them to relax.
Is Dysport right for me?
You may be a candidate for Dysport injections if you have facial lines and wrinkles that you'd like to reduce. The types of wrinkles Dysport injections treat are caused by overactive facial muscles not loss of skin elasticity or volume. If you are looking for a quick and relatively pain-free way of smoothing these wrinkles, Dysport injections may be right for you. Generally, adults of all ages who are in good overall health are medically able to receive Dysport injections. Unlike most practices you do not see a PA, Dr. Kapp performs all Dysport injections himself.
How much does Dysport cost?
In the West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area, most Dysport treatments are between $200 and $500. The cost of these injections is dependent on the volume of solution required to achieve the desired results. Generally, larger treatment areas or deeper facial folds require a higher volume, leading to a higher cost.
How involved is the Dysport procedure?
Dysport can be injected in the doctor's office, and takes around 20-30 minutes. A thin needle is used to inject the muscle relaxant solution into the targeted facial muscles. It generally takes between 3 and 8 injections, depending on the size of the targeted area. Patients are free to leave our West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area office as soon as these injections have been administered.
How long is the recovery after Dysport?
Muscle relaxant injections require no recovery period or bandages. It is often considered to be a lunchtime procedure because most West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area patients resume their daily routine immediately after leaving the office. Patients should avoid laying down or rubbing the treatment area for at least four hours after receiving muscle relaxant injections. The full effects become evident within a week of treatment, and usually last for up to six months.
