Dysport® in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL
Injectable cosmetic treatments are each specially designed to treat specific cosmetic concerns. For lines on the forehead, brow, and neck, as well as those around the eyes and lips, Dr. Davis recommends Dysport®. Because Dr. Davis is a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist, you can rely on his recommendation for Dysport® treatments, as do many men and women in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and surrounding areas in Florida.
What Is Dysport®?
Dysport® is approved by the FDA to relax and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles to improve your self-confidence. After a few injections, the formula takes effect over a few days to eliminate frown lines and other signs of aging.
Benefits of Dysport®
Dysport® offers several advantages to patients who want to lessen the appearance of aging without undergoing plastic surgery. The injections work on several types of wrinkles, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown or brow lines
- Neck lines and wrinkles
- Lip lines and wrinkles around the lips
How Is Dysport® Administered?
Dysport® is usually injected directly into the muscles, allowing them to relax. The procedure is safe, and millions of people have had successful, quick results. A majority of the procedure depends on the skill of the individual who executes the injections, rather than the medicine.
People often furrow their brows, purse their lips or make scowling faces without even realizing that they are doing it. Over time, the nerve impulses in the muscles cause them to remain contracted, which can lead to the development of wrinkles. Directly injected into the muscles, Dysport® blocks the signals from the nerves without impacting other muscles and nerves in the face and neck. This allows you to have full expression without worrying about how others see you.
Preparing for Dysport® Injections
One of the best reasons to choose Dysport® injections is because of how quickly the treatments are performed. Dysport® treatments require no specific preparations with the exception of avoiding the use of aspirin or other blood-thinning medications unless your physician gives you permission. This is because it could increase your risk for bruising at the sites of injection. Additionally, if you are a smoker, you should refrain from or quit smoking before receiving Dysport® injections. Dr. Davis will give you a careful examination to determine your eligibility as a candidate prior to the procedure, so you need to tell him about all of the medications you take, both prescription and over-the-counter.
The results of Dysport® injections take a bit of time before you see noticeable improvements. You might have some slight bruising, tenderness, swelling or redness around the injection sites after the procedure. These symptoms should go away within 24 to 48 hours. Following the injections, you will gradually see your skin soften and improve. As time passes, it is recommended that you schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Davis to keep your skin looking youthful. He is happy to advise you of a tailored schedule for your needs.
Are Dysport® Injections Right for Me?
You may be a Dysport® candidate if you have facial wrinkles and lines that you want to eliminate. The wrinkles that this formula treats are the result of overactive facial muscles rather than the loss of volume or elasticity. If you want a relatively pain-free and fast way to smooth these wrinkles, you may have success with Dysport®. Healthy adults of all ages are generally medically able to get Dysport® injections.
How Much Does Dysport® Cost?
Insurers typically view skin rejuvenation as an elective treatment, so most policies do not cover Dysport® injections. To make it affordable and accessible to as many patients as possible, CareCredit® is an accepted financing option at Davis Facial Plastic Surgery. You can call your nearest Davis Facial Plastic Surgery office if you have any questions about how much the procedure may cost you. You can pay by major credit card, personal check, or cash.
