Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) has been used for many years in Europe to improve lines and creases on the face and neck. Dysport is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent FDA approved in the US in 2009 for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines. It has rapidly become a very popular anti-aging treatment in this country, widely used to improve crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases and upper lip lines. Dr. Vessely is very experienced in the use of injectable cosmetic procedures, including Dysport, for aesthetic purposes, and can customize a treatment plan to help you to reach and maintain your goals. As a head and neck surgeon, she is adept at treating even complex areas, including lip lines, neck bands, masseter muscles and lip depressors.
Dysport acts as nerve impulse blocker, which prevents muscles from contracting. The muscles that cause wrinkles are relaxed and new lines are prevented from forming. Dysport procedures are simple and safe. After treatment, the overlying skin is more smooth while your untreated facial muscles continue to contract normally. Dysport starts to take effect within 1-3 days and is often in full effect within seven to 10 days and lasts approximately three to four months.
