If you are looking for a fast-acting treatment to reduce the appearance of frown lines, you may want to consider Dysport® at Baldone Reina Dermatology. We offer this treatment to patients living in Slidell, Covington, Mandeville and New Orleans, LA.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of frown lines by relaxing the muscles that cause them. Dysport® contains botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that blocks the nerve signals that trigger muscle contractions. When injected into the facial muscles, Dysport® forces the muscles to relax. This can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and even prevent them from developing or worsening.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
The cost of Dysport® ranges from $10-$15 per unit depending on the amount of product used and the areas treated. If you elect to receive Dysport® at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your Dysport® treatment. Once these variables are taken under consideration, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Dysport® Treatment Like?
Dysport® is typically injected in and around the area between the eyebrows, eyes, neck, lips and cheek muscles. The number of injections required will depend on your unique treatment plan. A Dysport® treatment takes less than 30 minutes, making it a great option for patients with a busy schedule.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Dysport®?
After your Dysport® treatment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising or sensitivity in the treatment area. These are common effects of treatment and typically fade within a day or two. Despite these minor side effects, you will be able to return to work and all other normal activities immediately following your appointment. There is no downtime or recovery period involved with Dysport®.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Dysport®?
Once the Dysport® formula takes effect in the muscles your results will become visible. This usually happens within three to 10 days following treatment. The results from Dysport® typically last about four months, after which time, many patients choose to have additional treatments to maintain their results.
