Dysport® in Charleston, SC
At Port City Plastic Surgery, Dr. Brian G. Widenhouse, a board-certified plastic surgeon, uses Dysport®, a dermal filler that reduces the appearance of deep creases and folds across the forehead and between the brow. Men and women living in and around Charleston, Daniel Island, Summerville and Mount Pleasant, SC, who want a more relaxed look may want to consider Dysport®.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is used to relax facial muscles especially around the forehead and eyes, and smooth the lines and wrinkles. It uses a form of bacterium clostridium botulinum that prevents the muscles in the forehead and between the brows from contracting to present an irritated expression. It is often used as an alternative to Botox® as it has a lower protein concentration and spreads much more easily.
Benefits of Dysport®
People often turn to Dysport® when they want a naturally soft expression. It features the following benefits:
- Immediate results
- Very little discomfort during the treatment
- Lasts about six months
- No downtime
- Treats muscles spasms
- Minimal to no side effects
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Dysport®?
If you want to reduce lines and wrinkles along the forehead and between the eyebrows, you may be an ideal candidate for Dysport®. It is effective at diminishing these visible signs of aging to restore a naturally, younger appearance.
What Do I Do to Prepare for Dysport®?
With Dysport®, there is no preparation; however, we recommend you stop taking medications and supplements that tend to thin the blood. Prior to receiving Dysport®, Dr. Widenhouse recommends you schedule an evaluation of your skin to ensure that this is the best option to achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Should I Expect on the Day of Dysport® Treatments?
We inject Dysport® directly into the targeted facial muscles that tend to contract and create frown lines and other wrinkles. This is typically on the forehead and between the eyebrows where there are often visible lines and wrinkles.
There is no pain involved with the injections. If anyone is anxious about needles or injections, we can apply a numbing cream to the targeted area.
How Long Does It take to Perform Dysport® Treatments?
We typically accomplish each session within about 15 to 30 minutes. If more treatments are required, we spread multiple sessions about six weeks apart.
What to Expect After Dysport® Treatments
Most people notice their facial muscles relaxing in as little as a few days following Dysport® injections. When this happens, they also notice the wrinkles, lines and folds beginning to diminish and ultimately disappear.
When Will I See Results?
The full results come within just a couple of weeks following the treatments.
How Long Do the Results from Dysport® Last?
These results last about a year but can be extended as maintenance treatments may train the muscles not to contract.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost in Charleston?
Dysport® treatments vary in cost depending on the number of injections and whether other cosmetic treatments are performed during the same appointment. During a consultation with Dr. Widenhouse, we can go over the cost as well as payment options including financing.
