What is Dysport?
At JEM Medspa, our team proudly offers Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL patients numerous, nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation. Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works similarly to BOTOX®, which softens and reduces dynamic wrinkles and lines on the face. Dynamic wrinkles happen because of repetitive facial expressions and movements, such as laughing, smiling, and frowning. Eventually, these expressions can make the muscles of your face tight. When this happens, it may cause the skin over the muscle to wrinkle. Even when your face is completely relaxed, the wrinkle may still show. Dysport is specifically formulated to treat the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. With natural-looking results that don't make your face look frozen, it temporarily relaxes the treated muscle so the dynamic wrinkle begins to smooth. To help rejuvenate your complexion, we encourage you to learn more about Dysport injectable wrinkle relaxers.

Am I a good Candidate for dysport?
Dysport is a noninvasive treatment that improves mild, moderate, or severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines that appear in between the eyebrows. Dynamic wrinkles and lines happen because of repetitive use, and at any age, they can make you look tired, mad, or sad. Dysport is a fast, effective treatment that addresses dynamic wrinkles without causing a "frozen" face. Since Dysport's formula spreads to reach a group of wrinkles, it also works well for Crow's feet. Crow's feet are the fine wrinkles that appear around the outer corners of the eyes. After 1 – 3 days, many patients notice visible improvement in their dynamic wrinkles, and the results may last about four months.

How does dysport work?
After your consultation, we can generally perform your treatment during the same appointment. Taking around 15 – 30 minutes to complete, we administer Dysport injections in one of our spacious procedure rooms. Generally, a numbing cream or local anesthetic is not needed because we inject Dysport with a fine-gauge needle. However, if requested, we can apply a numbing cream to your skin. After marking the injection sites, we will clean your skin and place five injections of Dysport across the brow. To minimize any swelling and bruising, we apply a cold compress. You can resume your regular tasks, but you should try to avoid any strenuous activities for at least a day.
What should I Expect after?
Following a Dysport treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling near the injection sites, but typically, these subside within a few days. You should sleep upright the night of your appointment and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Often, patients see improvements in 1 – 3 days. The appearance of your dynamic wrinkles will start to lessen, and your complexion will appear softer and more youthful-looking. Your injections should last for about 3 – 4 months. To maintain your results, we can help you schedule follow-up appointments.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Dysport are injections that correct dynamic facial wrinkles. The results of a Dysport injection generally become visible quicker compared to BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport results tend to last longer compared to other wrinkle relaxers, and it has a better spread. In your initial consultation, your injector will determine if BOTOX or Dysport is best for you.
Should I get Dysport or a wrinkle filler?
Many patients don't know the difference between injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Dysport, and wrinkle fillers. A wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles, whereas a dermal filler corrects static lines. Dynamic wrinkles are created by repetitive movements, such as frowning, smiling, laughing, and all of your other facial expressions. Dysport relaxes the muscle under the skin to smooth the dynamic wrinkle. Static wrinkles are the result of low skin elasticity, so a dermal filler plumps the skin to make it look even. In your consult, your injector will listen to your concerns and goals and help you determine whether a wrinkle relaxer, a filler, or both will produce your desired outcome.
How often should I get Dysport injections?
Dysport injection results may last 3 – 4 months. In your consultation, your injector will recommend how often you should schedule appointments at our office in Orland Park, IL to sustain your results. You may get treatments more often or further apart after you see the results from your initial Dysport treatment.
