Dysport® in Monroe, LA
Years of using facial expressions leave behind indentations in the skin known as “frown lines.” Dysport® is an injectable treatment that relaxes the muscles that cause these lines to give you a younger appearance. As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D. offers Dysport® for both men and women in Monroe, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable product that contains an ingredient proven to relax facial muscles. Intended for use in the upper third of the face, Dysport® is recommended for wrinkles around the eyes, as well as creases that develop across the forehead.
What Are the Benefits of Dysport®?
- Results last up to six months
- Works on dynamic wrinkles in the upper third of the face
- No downtime
- Some advantages over Botox®
How Does Dysport® Work?
The active ingredient in Dysport® is clinically proven to temporarily relax the muscles that you use for facial expressions. In the eye and forehead area, facial movements pinch the skin. As the collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid levels reduce with age, your skin cannot bounce back from the force exerted by the muscles. The result is wrinkles and lines. By relaxing the muscles, Dysport® allows time for the skin to smooth out and gradually reduce wrinkles.
What Should I Expect from Dysport®?
Dr. Hopkins uses a small needle to make several injections into the facial muscles. You may see some improvement after the treatment, and full results only take a matter of days. Pinpoint bleeding, tenderness, and swelling at the injection points are common symptoms after Dysport® treatments, and these should only last 24-48 hours.
After your initial treatment, you should have maintenance treatments every four months for Botox®, Kybella®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. Our other dermal fillers and injectables require follow-up treatments every year.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost in Monroe, LA?
The cost of Dysport® treatments are based upon an individualized treatment plan that details the amount of product and number of injections that are needed to achieve the desired anti-aging results. The plan is developed during your appointment with Dr. Hopkins, and we will discuss cost at that time.
