As we age the first place we notice it is in the face. Those wrinkles in the forehead especially cause a great deal of concern for many of us. For some time there has been the option of a surgical procedure to eliminate this problem, but in many cases it is not necessary to resort to something that aggressive. There are non-surgical options for the reduction of wrinkles in the forehead and that area between the eyebrows. We have heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic, now there is an additional alternative known as Dysport®.
Dr. Paul Blair now offers this additional alternative Dysport®. It has been used in Europe for over 15 years. This product was approved by the FDA for injection as a temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (lines between the eye brows and forehead) in adults. Dr. Blair is seeing very positive results with his patients.
Dysport® is injected the same way as BOTOX® Cosmetic and has been reported to have many similarities.
Potential side effects of Dysport® are similar to those associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. They include local numbness, swelling, some bruising or a burning sensation during injection. These side effects are temporary.
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic , Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A. Dr. Blair will inject small amounts of the toxin into specific wrinkle-causing muscles, temporarily weaken them. The amount being used and the locations will vary according to the patient.
If you are interested in determining if Dysport® is an option for you we recommended that you contact Dr. Blair and schedule a personalized appointment today. Call (304) 201-3223 or contact us now on line.
