The Basics of Dysport

Dysport is an injectable neuromodulator that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. It works by blocking nerve signals, which prevents muscles in the face from contracting and creating wrinkles. Dysport can also be used to treat excessive sweating, commonly known as hyperhidrosis, as well as giving a subtle lip flip for a more youthful look.

Results can typically be seen within two to three days after receiving treatment, with maximum results appearing between 14 and 28 days after treatment. Dysport injections are safe and effective when administered by an experienced medical professional.

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport contains a muscle relaxant made of botulinum toxin type A, and works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles, causing them to relax and soften existing wrinkles. This helps improve the contours of the face, resulting in a smoother and more youthful overall look. Additionally, Dysport can be used for other aesthetic purposes, such as lifting brows and creating fuller lips. The effects typically take several days to become visible and last up to four months before needing to be repeated.

It is important that patients follow their provider’s instructions carefully and avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 48 hours after treatment since this can interfere with the injection process.

Dysport Lip Flip

The Dysport Lip Flip is a popular aesthetic procedure that uses Dysport injections to improve the appearance of lips. During the treatment, carefully-measured amounts of Dysport are injected into the muscles around the mouth, causing them to relax and making the lips look fuller and more defined.

The effects are subtle but can be quite dramatic when done correctly. Although there is no downtime associated with this procedure, some swelling and bruising may occur in the first few days after treatment.

Results may also fade over time and require occasional maintenance treatments for optimal results. For those looking for something other than a traditional lip augmentation or dermal fillers, Dysport Lip Flip may be an excellent option to explore.

What To Expect from the Dysport Lip Flip

If you’re looking to enhance the appearance of your lips without undergoing a full-fledged surgical procedure, the Dysport lip flip may be the solution you’ve been searching for. Here’s what you can expect from the procedure:

  1. Consultation: Your provider will begin by conducting a consultation to discuss your goals and ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
  2. Preparation: Before the procedure begins, your provider may apply a topical anesthetic or ice to numb the treatment area and minimize any discomfort.
  3. Injection: Using a small needle, your provider will make a series of tiny injections of Dysport into the muscles around your lips.
  4. Relaxation: The Dysport works by relaxing the muscles, causing the upper lip to gently flip outward and create the appearance of fuller, more voluminous lips.
  5. Aftercare: Following the procedure, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, but this typically resolves within a few days. Your provider may recommend avoiding certain activities, such as strenuous exercise, for a short period to allow the Dysport to settle and produce optimal results.
  6. Maintenance: Since the effects of a Dysport lip flip typically last for around 2-3 months, you may need to schedule follow-up appointments to maintain your results.

As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s essential to choose a qualified and experienced provider to perform the Dysport lip flip to minimize the risk of complications and ensure that you achieve your desired outcome.

How Can I See the Results of Treatment Sooner?

If you’re looking to speed up the results of Dysport treatment, there are a few things you can do. First, you can exercise your facial muscles to see initial results quicker. For example, if you’re using Dysport for a non-invasive brow lift, raise your eyebrows 40 times and rest for 10 minutes. Repeat this three times before your treatment. Scowling your face will also help to relax the muscles and assist with the results of the injection.

Additionally, following all post-treatment instructions is key – this includes not touching or massaging the area being treated and avoiding strenuous activities that may cause excessive sweating or swelling. Lastly, be sure to plan ahead; if you have an important event coming up soon after treatment, it is best to schedule it several days after so that the Dysport has had enough time to take effect.

How Long Do Results Typically Last?

The results of Dysport typically last between four and six months, although the exact amount of time depends on the individual and the area being treated. Factors such as skin hydration and sun exposure can also affect how long the results will last.

To extend the results further, it’s important to keep your skin well-hydrated and protected from UV rays. Additionally, avoiding strenuous activities that may cause excessive sweating or swelling can help prolong the effects of Dysport.

Ultimately, it is best to follow all post-treatment instructions given by your doctor in order to ensure that you get the most out of your treatment.

How Should I Prepare for Treatment?

To prepare for treatment with Dysport, it is important to come in for an initial consultation with a certified doctor who is experienced in administering neuromodulators. During the consultation, the nurse practitioner will assess your physical structure and the cause of your cosmetic concerns. It is also important to remember that Dysport is designed to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds; mild cosmetic concerns can be treated more effectively with Botox.

Before the appointment, it is recommended to avoid taking any anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen or aspirin, as these can increase the risk of bruising at the injection sites. Additionally, you should refrain from drinking alcohol for up to 24 hours before your appointment, as this can also increase bruising risks. Finally, make sure to keep your skin well-hydrated prior to your appointment and avoid any strenuous activities that may cause excessive sweating or swelling.

Following all of these instructions will help ensure a successful treatment session.

What Can I Expect During My Treatment Session?

The entire process usually takes around 15 minutes, and you may experience some minor discomfort as the product is injected. Our nurse practitioners will inject between 50 and 150 units of Dysport. Following your appointment, it is important to keep the injection sites clean and dry while avoiding any strenuous activities that could cause excessive sweating or swelling.

For 4 hours post treatment there is laying down, so schedule appropriately. As with any medical procedure, there is always a risk of side effects such as bruising or redness at the injection site; however, these are usually temporary and should resolve within a few days.

How Can I Care for My Skin After Treatment?

Once your Dysport treatment session is complete, it is important to take extra care of your skin in order to ensure optimal results. First and foremost, make sure you are protecting your skin from the sun by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 35 every four hours. Additionally, try to avoid any strenuous activities that could cause excessive sweating or swelling in the treated area.

Finally, be sure to keep the injection sites clean and dry while avoiding any pressure to the area until the neurotoxin has settled into your muscles fully; this means no massaging the treatment area or sleeping on your stomach or side for the first night or two after treatment. By following these simple steps, you can help ensure that you get maximum results from your Dysport treatment.
