Dysport in Los Angeles, CA
As an alternative to BOTOX®, Dysport® is a cosmetic injectable that temporarily reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and folds that appear around the eyes, forehead and mouth. At Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, double board-certified plastic surgeon, treats people living in and around Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood, CA, with Dysport® to restore a more relaxed and younger looking appearance.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an alternative cosmetic injectable to BOTOX® and Xeomin® that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin imperfections that appear with age. It works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle to temporarily prevent the treated muscle from contracting and exaggerating the degree of the wrinkles.
Benefits of Dysport®
Dysport® is used to treat areas of the face that show significant signs of aging as it offers the following benefits:
- Effective at reducing worry lines and furrowed brows
- Quick results with continued improvement
- Spreads across targeted area more evenly
- Has no side effects
- No recovery or downtime
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Dysport®?
If you have noticeable worry lines, vertical lines between your eyebrows, or other lines and folds caused by contracted muscles, you may be an ideal candidate for Dysport®. It is often chosen when you don’t get the results you want from BOTOX® or want to see quicker results. It is necessary to evaluate your overall health and medical history, including allergies, to ensure you can tolerate Dysport®.
What Do I Do to Prepare for My Dysport® Treatments?
We recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Karimi so he can evaluate your face and determine if Dysport® or another injectable is the best option to achieve your desired look. It is common for the treatments to be done during the same appointment.
What Happens During My Dysport® Treatments?
During your appointment for Dysport® injections, the area is cleaned and using a very fine-gauge needle; the filler is injected into the muscles in the targeted area. Once this is done, the area is gently massaged to ensure the injectable is spread evenly over the area. An icepack may be placed on the injection site to minimize any swelling.
Dysport® injections do not cause any discomfort or pain. If necessary to ease anxiety, we can apply a numbing cream to ensure there is no feeling during the injections.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Dysport® Injections?
Dysport® injections typically take only about 15-30 minutes to perform depending on the area being treated. Only one treatment is necessary for most patients.
What to Expect After Dysport®
There may be some slight swelling or redness at the injection site, but an ice pack typically reduces the risk of these side effects. Any leftover swelling resolves itself within a few hours or a day.
When Will I See the Results?
The results from Dysport® injections are slightly noticeable immediately following the treatment. The full results take a few weeks to reveal themselves. You can expect the results to last for up to six months. Unless maintained, the lines and wrinkles reappear once Dysport® has worn off.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost in Los Angeles?
The cost of Dysport® injections is based on the area where the injections occur, the number of injections needed to treat the area and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. We can discuss the cost with you during your consultation along with our payment and financing options. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards in addition to offering financing through CareCredit®.
