Dysport Sherman Oaks

Fight wrinkles and look natural doing it.

Wrinkles aren’t your style and “frozen face” isn’t either. For men and women in the Los Angeles area who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, an alternative to Botox injections that have been proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.

How Does Dysport Work?

Similar to Botox, Dysport works by reducing specific muscle activity. Dysport treats “dynamic wrinkles” which are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions. When injected into these areas the Dysport temporarily prevents muscle contractions, causing a reduction in lines and wrinkles. Dysport is an excellent choice to treat lines and wrinkles of the forehead, brows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet).

When Can I See The Results Of Dysport?

Dysport can actually start to work a little faster than Botox or Xeomin. You may begin to see the results of your Dysport injections in as little as 2-3 days. It may take up to 2 weeks after injection to see your full results.

Results And Patient Experience May Vary.

How Long Does Dysport Last?

Similar to Botox, Dysport injections last around 3-4 months. For best results, Dysport should be repeated 3-4 times per year. Ideally, your next treatment session should be performed by Dr. Zadeh before the results of your last Dysport injection completely wear off. The goal is to keep the targeted muscles weak all the time. It would be a very good idea to schedule your treatments in advance so there is no period of time that your muscle function returns completely to normal. This will keep your muscles in a weakened state and prevent the wrinkles from worsening.

What Are Dysport Risks?

Dysport is a very safe substance when injected by experienced physicians. The most common risks are those that are associated with the needle injection process and include: bleeding, minor bruising, and possible swelling at the injection site. Allergic reaction and infection are very rare, though possible, risks. Flu like symptoms or minor headaches can occur. Muscle stiffness or weakness can theoretically occur especially in people with Myasthenia Gravis. There can be eyebrow or eyelid droop as well as possible double or blurry vision. Most of the risks are temporary and wear off as the Dysport wears off.

It’s important to know that Dysport tends to spread out more than Botox. Therefore, even the same exact injection method can yield slightly different results each time, but these are very insignificant differences.

What Is Dysport Treatment Like?

Dysport treatment is quick and non-invasive. Dr. Michael Zadeh is a board certified surgeon with extensive experience in providing Dysport and other nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to men and women in the Sherman Oaks and Los Angeles area. Dr. Zadeh will make a few tiny, precisely placed injections into the muscles that are causing your wrinkles. The injections will cause a weakening of the muscles, making them relax. The wrinkled skin covering the overactive muscles then becomes smooth as the wrinkles are erased.

During your Dysport consultation, Dr. Zadeh will decide exactly where to place the injections to give you the best results. No anesthesia is required, although sometimes an ice pack is applied to the area before the injections, for your comfort.

The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes, making it perfect to schedule on your lunch hour if you’re busy, like most of us are. Discomfort is minimal and brief; most people compare the sensation to a bug bite. There is no downtime. You can resume your normal activity immediately.
