Facial expression lines always seem to appear before we are ready for them. Fortunately, Dr. Alison Black and Cheryl Sundlov, PA-C at Las Colinas Dermatology offer a variety of modern, non-surgical wrinkle treatments that can help you restore or maintain a youthful-looking face.
Dysport® was the first FDA-approved alternative to the highly popular injectable wrinkle treatment BOTOX® Cosmetic. Unlike dermal fillers that correct wrinkles by restoring lost volume, Dysport® temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that actually cause the wrinkles, such as horizontal forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. It also can temporarily keep the wrinkles from progressing and prevent future wrinkles in the treated areas. Combining Dysport® with dermal fillers and chemical peels can give you an even more impressive overall facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Alison Black and Cheryl Sundlov, PA-C make patient care a priority; therefore, they conduct all Dysport® consultations and treatments themselves. They have an in-depth understanding of the relationship between facial muscles and expressions, so you can feel confident that your Dysport® treatments will be performed with precision and care and that your enhancements will be natural looking and not “frozen”.
What Makes Dysport® Different From BOTOX® Cosmetic?
These two products are made from botulinum toxin type A and work on the same principle of correcting wrinkles by relaxing facial muscle movement. However, they offer some differences. Dysport® has been found to:
- Take effect earlier, within 1 to 2 days after treatment, as opposed to 3 to 5 days for BOTOX® Cosmetic, making it ideal if you have a special event within a couple of days after your treatment.
- Result in improvements that spread farther from the injection site. While this property can limit precision, it can be beneficial when treating larger areas.
