At Dr. Andrew Smith’s practice, he not only offers the popular Botox but other treatments to help temporarily reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines.
Some women and men are turning to Dysport®. Dr. Smith offers his patients in Irvine Dysport, which is sometimes called a “cousin” to BOTOX. Both are designed to treat wrinkles and lines of the forehead and upper portion of the face.
Dysport is FDA-approved and made with a purified form of botulinum toxin, the active ingredient in BOTOX.
Dr. Smith uses Dysport for Irvine and other Orange County patients with “dynamic wrinkles,” such as smile lines or crow’s feet, that are caused by the movement of facial muscles. Like BOTOX, Dysport works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause these wrinkles. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin lays flat and those dynamic wrinkles are significantly reduced.
Dysport differs from BOTOX in several important ways:
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Smith has the experience and training to make the most of this exciting new treatment. He also performs surgical facial rejuvenation procedures such as facelift and blepharoplasty. For many women and men who want longer-lasting results, facial plastic surgery might be a better choice.
Dysport is performed in your surgeon’s office. Depending upon the number of areas to be treated, the procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes.
Dysport is injected into the facial muscles that are causing your wrinkles, usually between your eyebrows and on your forehead. You may feel a slight pinch which may be avoided with a topical anesthetic. After your injections of Dysport Irvine patients may return to work or your normal routine right away. There may be some slight bruising or swelling but these are mild and can be easily covered with makeup.
The results of Dysport are usually visible after 1 or 2 days and will last up to 6 months. The treatment is repeatable.
When Dysport is performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, you don’t have to worry about looking “frozen” or “fake.” You will not lose your facial expressions, so your results will look natural.
