Forehead Treatment
What is Dysport?

Dysport is a medication dermatologists use to improve the appearance of wrinkles, such as those between the eyebrows. Dysport has been extensively studied in many clinical trials with data published in numerous scientific and medical journals.

How does Dysport work?

When Dysport is injected into a muscle, the muscle temporarily relaxes for up to 3 to 4 months. Expertise is required to deliver a natural appearance, avoiding a “frozen” look. There are many reasons why some people look artificial while others look beautiful and we are keenly aware of those differences when we treat our patients. The goal is to simply look better, relaxed, and rejuvenated. You should not lose the ability to show normal expression or be yourself.

Does Dysport treatment hurt?
Many patients report Dysport injections feel like a pinch. If you are concerned about discomfort, your dermatologist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

When will I see results?
Cosmetic benefits become noticeable within the first few days and have maximum benefit after about a week. Benefits may last up to 4 months with a single treatment.

How long is the recovery time after treatment?

After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities. There is minimal downtime and your dermatologist may give you specific aftercare instructions. Sometimes a bruise occurs because of the needle’s contact with the skin, so plan accordingly with your personal and professional obligations.

Do men receive Dysport?

Yes. Dysport has been extensively studied in men and we treat men routinely at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 1 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in the United States in 2014. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 273% from 1997 to 2014.  There are different approaches, however, when treating men versus women, and our dedicated dermatologists take these real differences into account during every treatment.
