Preparing for Your Dysport Injections in New York

Before being approved as a candidate for Dysport injections in Manhattan and Southampton, New York, your dermatologist will evaluate your skin and perform a thorough discussion of your medical history.

To prevent or minimize bruising after your treatment, your dermatologist may recommend the following:

  • Stop taking blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, Omega-3 capsules, vitamin E, allergy medications, and muscle relaxers
  • Take Arnica tablets 2-3 days before your injection
  • Avoid applying products that can irritate the skin 2-3 days before and after treatments (e.g., tretinoin, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide)
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages 24 hours before (or after) your treatment

When Will I See Results?

You may begin to notice improvement within the first few days after your treatment, but full results won’t become apparent for a week or two. Most patients enjoy their refreshed appearance for around four months. Regular treatment sessions will continue your improvements indefinitely.

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

You should be able to return to your activities immediately following your Dysport treatment. Your dermatologist may give you specific aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results. It is not unusual to develop a bruise at the injection site, so plan your treatment accordingly to give your skin time to heal before a major social or professional event.

Questions and Answers

Q: How Does Dysport Work?

A: Dysport is a neuromodulator, meaning it temporarily prevents muscle movement at the injection site. Once injected into a specific muscle, the tissue relaxes for 3-4 months, reducing the appearance of the wrinkles and facial lines above.

Expertise is required to deliver a natural appearance and prevent a “frozen” look. Our goal is to ensure our patients look younger, relaxed, and rejuvenated. You should still be yourself and not lose the ability to show normal expression. It’s you, only better.

Q: How Long Does Dysport Last?

A: While initial improvements may appear as early as 24-48 hours after treatment, full Dysport results may take 1-2 weeks to develop. Most patients enjoy their improvement for 3-4 months.

You can schedule a subsequent session as the effects subside to maintain your results. Regular Dysport treatments can also prevent lines and wrinkles from getting deeper and may ward off the appearance of others completely.

Q: What Long Does It Take for Dysport to Work?

A: While initial improvements are typically visible within a few days of your Dysport treatment, full results may not be apparent until after a week or two. Regular treatment sessions are essential to maintain your results.

Q: What Should I Expect During My Dysport Treatment in New York?

A: Your dermatologist will perform a series of injections around your forehead and eyebrows. To ensure a more comfortable experience, your dermatologist may apply a topical anesthetic on your Dysport treatment areas. You might feel slight pressure or a skin pinch from the injections. Overall, the procedure should not cause any significant pain.

The injections typically take a few minutes to perform, and you can leave immediately after the procedure. Your dermatologist will provide aftercare instructions and a recommended treatment plan to maintain your results.

Q: Do Dysport Injections Hurt?

A: Your dermatologist may apply a topical numbing cream to improve your comfort during Dysport injections. Talk to your dermatologist about any concerns you might have before your treatment.

Q: What is the After-Care for Dysport?

A: To prevent Dysport from spreading, avoid the following activities during the first 4 hours after your treatment:

  • Lying down
  • Rubbing or applying excessive pressure on the treatment sites
  • Strenuous activities, hot showers, and other activities that cause flushing

To prevent bruising, you can:

  • Apply a cold compress or ice pack over the treated area during the first 24 hours after your treatment
  • Avoid vigorous activities for 1-2 days
  • Take Arnica 
  • Sleep with your head elevated to limit blood flow to your face
  • Avoid blood thinners, alcohol, vitamin E, and herbal supplements (e.g., ginko biloba)

Adherence to your dermatologist’s aftercare instructions helps prevent complications and allows Dysport to work efficiently and provide the best possible results.

Q: What Are the Side Effects of Dysport?

A: Side effects of Dysport are rare and usually temporary. Some experience mild pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites for 2-3 days. Others have mild headaches temporarily.

Q: Should I Choose Dysport or Botox?

A: Both Dysport and Botox are effective in reducing moderate to severe lines and wrinkles and provide beautiful results for the right candidates in Manhattan and Southampton, New York.

While Dysport and Botox both come from the same source, their difference lies in their formulations. Dysport is more diluted and spreads more quickly and evenly compared to Botox, making it ideal for treating areas with a larger surface area like the forehead. Dysport is also believed to have a slightly faster onset time than Botox (about 2-3 days compared to 3-5).

Choosing between Dysport and Botox comes down to your skin issues and aesthetic goals, and the best way to decide is by meeting with your dermatologist for a consultation. A board-certified dermatologist with extensive knowledge of injectables means they can select the best one for you. They understand how Dysport and Botox affect specific lines, wrinkles, and treatment areas. After performing a skin evaluation and discussing your goals, they can devise the best approach to help you look and feel years younger.

Q: Is Dysport Safe?

A: Dysport was approved by the FDA for the temporary treatment of forehead wrinkles and frown lines in 2009. When Dysport is used correctly in terms of needle placement and dosage amounts, it is both safe and effective. Like any cosmetic treatment, it is essential to work with a medical practitioner and experienced injector to ensure an optimal outcome. Our aesthetic experts at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York have expertise in facial anatomy, as well as extensive training in neuromodulators, equipping us to provide you with superior results with minimal risk involved. For maximum safety, never get injections at non-medical spas, parties, salons or someone’s home. Other neuromodulators such as Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are all FDA-approved as well.

Q: What is the Recovery Like After Dysport Injections?

A: Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately following Dysport treatment. Your dermatologist may give you specific after care instructions to ensure the best possible results.

It is not unusual to develop a bruise at the injection site, so plan your treatment accordingly to give your skin time to heal before a major social or professional event.

Q: Do Neuromodulators Treat All Wrinkles?

A: Neuromodulators are primarily designed to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are lines that form when you make certain facial expressions. Dysport, Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau relax the facial muscles that form many of the lines in the upper face, such as crow’s feet, horizontal forehead creases, and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by skin laxity and volume loss, such as nasolabial folds, will not respond well to neuromodulators like Dysport. We see more success addressing these lines with injectable dermal fillers in many cases.

Q: When Should I Start Getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

A: There is no set age for Dysport treatments. We recommend scheduling a consultation with our office so we can assess you in person and determine whether Dysport is the right choice for you. 

Q: Will My Face Look And Feel Unnatural?

A: As long as you work with a licensed and trained injector like the board-certified cosmetic dermatologists at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, you can expect results that are both subtle and natural. Your family and friends won’t know you had a cosmetic treatment unless you choose to tell them. We have the experience and expertise on how to use just enough toxin to improve fine lines and wrinkles while ensuring patients maintain their natural facial expressions. You’ll still look like you, just refreshed and wrinkle-free.
