Dysport - Gattonimed.com

GATTONI Medical Aesthetics and Wellness is a Medical spa in Denver, Colorado offering the Dysport procedure. Dysport, like Botox, is a neuromodulator. This injectable treatment is specifically used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. It works by blocking certain nerve signals that cause muscle movement and contractions, thus smoothing out the skin’s surface.


The Differences Between Dysport and Botox

When discussing Dysport and Botox, most people assume they are one in the same. However, there are several differences between these two injectables. Dysport is made from a different type of protein than Botox is. This means it will take effect sooner, with results starting to appear within 24-48 hours after injection. Additionally, Dysport tends to spread further once injected into the facial area, covering more of the surrounding area than Botox does. As such, Dysport may require fewer treatments than Botox.

Benefits of Dysport Injections

There are many benefits to Dysport injections, including:

  • No downtime – you can immediately return to your normal routine following treatment.
  • Results last three to four months.
  • It can be used to treat wrinkles and lines around the eyes, forehead and mouth.
  • It’s fast and painless, taking only 15 minutes for the entire injection session.
  • It’s safe and effective.
  • It can also be used to reduce excessive sweating.

Who Should Not Get Dysport Injections?

Although Dysport injections are generally considered safe, there are certain people who should not get them. These include:

  • People with weak immune systems
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women
  • People who have had any other kind of injectable treatments within the past month
  • Those with active infections or inflammation near the injection site

It’s also important to note that Dysport injections should only be performed by an experienced and licensed medical provider. Doing otherwise could leave you at greater risk of side effects or complications.

Side Effects of Dysport Injections

As with any type of medical procedure, there are potential side effects associated with Dysport injections. These include:

  • Swelling and bruising at the injection site
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Itching and rashes
  • Fatigue
  • Neck pain
  • Dizziness

These side effects are usually mild and pass quickly. But if you experience any severe side effects or reactions, contact your doctor right away.

Preparing for Dysport Injections

Before getting Dysport injections, you should discuss your medical history with your doctor. Be sure to tell them about any medications or supplements you’re taking, as well as any allergies you may have. Your doctor will likely recommend avoiding alcohol and anti-inflammatory medications before your appointment as well.

Recovery After Dysport Injections

After receiving Dysport injections, you may experience some swelling and redness at the injection sites. This is normal, and should resolve within a few days. You may also feel some tenderness in the area, but this too should dissipate over time. In general, it’s best to avoid strenuous activity and direct sunlight for the first 24 hours after your appointment.

Dysport injections can be a great way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. While this treatment is generally safe, it’s important to talk to your doctor before getting it done. They’ll help you decide if it’s right for you, and make sure you’re fully prepared for the procedure.
