The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that botulinum toxin type A injections are the most common minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment in the country. This injectable approach to softening wrinkles accounted for 7.44 million of the 15.9 million minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments performed in 2018. You may know botulinum toxin by the trade name Botox; however, this well-recognized solution represents just one of a group of medications that use the same active ingredient to inhibit the muscle activity responsible for expression lines.
Double board-certified surgeon Dr. Patrick Obasi is pleased to administer Botox as well as Xeomin and Dysport treatment skillfully and safely to Plano, Texas, area patients in his practice, Noble Cosmetic Surgery. Other cosmetic surgery centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex may only offer Botox. So, searching for “Dysport injections near me” can be difficult. Dr. Obasi provides options, allowing for truly tailored treatment that achieves the best outcomes for each patient.
Dysport injections, an alternative to invasive surgery
Used in the United Kingdom since 1991, Dysport was initially developed and approved as a treatment for involuntary blinking and various forms of muscle spasms. The Food and Drug Administration later approved Dysport in 2009 to treat cervical dystonia, a condition characterized by involuntary contractions of the neck muscles. Dysport was also approved to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines temporarily. The skin between the eyebrows, or glabella, is prone to wrinkles as each time you frown or squint, a groove forms beneath the skin’s surface. As skin ages and loses flexibility, the lines that generally only appear when an expression is made become permanent facial features.
Dysport works on the muscles that repeatedly contract, tighten, and cause wrinkles with one injection into each of the five points above and between the brows. When Dr. Obasi administers this solution, it blocks the signal sent by the nerves to the muscles that normally cause the activity responsible for lines. Since the signal that produces the contraction is blocked, the muscles can’t cause lines when you frown or make other expressions. The treated area looks smooth and youthful again; you don’t have to worry about areas of your face appearing unnatural or “frozen,” as Dysport only works at the injection site. So, go ahead—express yourself freely and naturally with confidence!
Dr. Obasi’s patients also appreciate that the Dysport treatment is:
- Fast – Treatments only take about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on your needs and goals
- Effective – Results vary, but more than half of the patients saw an improvement in their frown lines within two to three days
- Long-Lasting – Generally, results from a single treatment persist for around five months before more injections are needed
- Safe – Side effects are similar to other common minimally-invasive treatments and include localized discomfort, redness, and swelling
