Over the years, the facial expressions you make leave their mark on your skin. As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity and lines appear where the skin moves when you smile, frown or laugh. The “11” that appears between your eyebrows or the bunny lines across the top of your nose can give away your age. Dysport injections are one of the options we offer at The K Spa in Atlanta to relax those wrinkles and help your face retain a more youthful appearance.
Dysport is a neuromodulator, which means it interferes with the messages sent through the nerves to the muscles. Certain lines and wrinkles appear when muscles in your face contract, even when your face is resting. By blocking those nerve messages, the muscles relax and lines smooth away. Dysport injections can be used to target specific muscles that are causing a variety of lines, wrinkles and other issues, relaxing them temporarily to create the desired effect.
At The K Spa, our medical director, Dr. Benjamin Stong, offers the expertise needed to utilize the incredible advantages of Dysport injections. As a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, he understands the complexities of nerves and muscles in the face. Under his guidance, our team can use Dysport to relax targeted muscles to improve the youthfulness of the face. These injections require precision and the correct dosage to get the best results, which Dr. Stong ensures our patients receive at our med spa.
Dysport Treatment Areas
Dysport is a neurotoxin, similar to Botox, and works in the same manner. Dysport blocks muscle contractions and is used to treat many of the same areas. Lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement when making certain facial expressions are the areas best treated with this muscle relaxer. These may include:
- Bunny lines on the top of the nose
- Frown lines on the brow
- “11” between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Chin dimples
Dysport injections can be completed at our office during a short appointment and require no downtime. Unlike many facial fillers that have immediate results, Dysport can require a few days before the relaxing effect takes place. On average, results last about four months before another treatment is needed.
Bruise-Free Injections for Wrinkle Reduction
At The K Spa, we offer bruise-free injections for our facial fillers and cosmetic modulators like Dysport. Our specialized technique and blunt-tip microcannulas help minimize any bruising during treatment with Dysport, a common problem with cosmetic injections. Dr. Ben Stong and our team use this method to hide the noticeable marks that can be a tell-tale sign of cosmetic procedures. You can come in for your Dysport, facial filler and other cosmetic injections and feel confident to return to work or social interactions without noticeable bruising from your treatment. We understand that our patients often prefer that their treatments are discreet, and our bruise-free injections are perfect for hiding evidence of your visits to our clinic.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dysport?
Anyone who has frown, smile or bunny lines they want smoothed away may benefit from Dysport injections. Due to the neurotoxin and proteins it contains, it is not recommended for pregnant women or for those with milk allergies. Dysport can be an alternative to Botox; some people build up a tolerance to Botox but can use Dysport to receive similar results.
