Muscles contracting are what cause the wrinkles that form between the eyebrows, on the forehead and on the crow’s feet. Dysport works by relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles. That does two things. It can eliminate existing wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles and it can prevent the development of more wrinkles because you won’t be contracting that muscle for a few months.

Dysport is an injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport injections allow patients to have a fresher, rejuvenated, less tired look. The beauty of minimally invasive skin care is that these services can be conveniently performed (by Dr. Balikian or his Aesthetic injectors) right in the office with little or no downtime. Dysport is a safe, effective proven method of treating fine lines and wrinkles.

Dysport is a superb option for patients who do not want surgery, but want the same improvement of the deep creases and furrows of the face. The results can be remarkable when performed in the proper hands. As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Balikian is uniquely trained in the location and activity of the muscles of the face. Dr. Balikian recognizes that each patient is different, and therefore individualizes his injection for what each patient needs.

Dr. Balikian and his Aesthetic injectors use exceptionally small needles, about the thickness of a human hair, and they use a gentle touch to minimize discomfort and prevent bruising. There is no down time with Dysport injections. Makeup can go on right away and you can return to work or go to dinner that night without worry.

We advise patients to avoid using blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Omega-3 Fish Oils for one week before any injection to help decrease the risk of bruising. In addition, avoiding alcohol a few nights before injection and taking the herbal medication arnica may help decrease the risk of bruising which is minimal. Although another injectable called Xeomin is on the market, we do not carry it as Dysport and Botox seem to provide exceptional results.
