Dysport in Columbus, OH
The vertical lines between your eyes are caused by muscle contractions. Dysport® contains active ingredients that work on the muscles to soften the creases. Downtown Dermatology offers Dysport® treatments to men and women in the Columbus and Upper Arlington area.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a non-surgical injectable product that works on the muscles that cause vertical frown lines between the eyes. The active ingredient in Dysport® is botulinum toxin, a substance that temporarily paralyzes the muscles. After the treatment, you are unable to voluntarily or involuntarily use the muscles that cause frown lines.
Patients who use Dysport® to treat frown lines enjoy the following benefits:
No surgery needed
Frown lines are controlled for three to six months in most patients
Product can be used as an alternative to Botox®
Where Dysport® Be Applied?
Dysport® is FDA approved for treating vertical lines between the eyes, known as “frown lines.” The product may also be used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet and the neck area (off-label treatments).
How is Dysport® Administered?
Dysport® is injected into the muscles with a very tiny needle. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle is inserted into the skin and muscle. Most patients can tolerate the sensation, but we can treat the area with a topical numbing agent if you find the procedure uncomfortable. Dysport® is most effective for treating frown lines when multiple injections are made into the muscles.
Dysport® Procedure Preparation
The procedure for Dysport® is quick and easy. Just set up an appointment and clear about an hour of your day. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the appointment.
Dysport® Procedure Recovery
Some patients experience tenderness, swelling and slight bleeding at the injection sites. The symptoms last only 24 to 48 hours.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
Dysport® treatments are considered elective by your medical insurance. As such, you are responsible for the cost. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.
Is Dysport® Right for Me?
Dysport® is FDA approved and clinically proven to be a safe and effective injectable treatment for frown lines. The best way to know if Dysport® or another of our dermal fillers and injectables is right for you is to schedule personal consultation with Dr. Hicks-Graham.
