Meet Dysport® – a close relative of Botox®. Dr. Steve Torres, MD, is a 15-year ER doctor who personally performs the Dysport procedure on every patient.
WHAT IS DYSPORT®?
Dysport®, made by Galderma, works just like BOTOX® and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the treated muscles. It is injected directly into the target sites, reducing the mobility of the underlying muscle. With the proper amount of Dysport® units, you can age gracefully while still maintaining a natural look.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT
After an evaluation of your muscles’ movement and strength, Dr. Torres strategically injects a small amount of Dysport® into the target muscles. This procedure is very quick and lasts only about 5-15 minutes. Most patients experience only minimal discomfort but we can use a range of numbing methods if needed.
HOW DYSPORT® WORKS
As a neuromodulator, Dysport® works like Botox® and blocks the communication between the brain and the muscles that are injected. With this communication blocked, your muscles relax and your fine lines start to diminish. After a few months, the blockage begins to slowly fade and your muscles will regain their regular activity.
HOW LONG DOES DYSPORT LAST?
Though results often vary, most patients can typically see a noticeable improvement in their lines within a few days. The full effect is seen after approximately one week . The results from the treatment typically last 3-4 months. For ongoing and best results, Dr. Torres recommends regular injections before the complete wearing off of your last treatment.
