Dysport® Injectable Treatment
Dr. Steven Yarinsky is the only Capital District physician recognized by New Beauty Magazine’s www.expertinjector.org, a group of highly trained and experienced plastic surgeons who are skilled in administering injectable cosmetic treatments such as facial fillers and Dysport®, an alternative for BOTOX® Cosmetic, to relax muscles. A combination of these treatments can be performed as a “liquid facelift,” which can help you take 5 to 10 years off your appearance without surgery! All physician members of expertinjector.org are committed to providing you with the best possible results using injectables that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug administration and purchased directly from the manufacturer. All injectable treatments are performed by Dr. Yarinsky.
Dr. Steven Yarinsky is one of the board-certified plastic surgeons in the Capital District who uses Dysport® to improve moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabella lines), crows’ feet and forehead. Sold by Galderma, a subsidiary of Nestlé, Dysport® is an injectable muscle relaxant treatment effective for temporary reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. If you are considering facial rejuvenation, Dysport® which works similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®, can often be very beneficial in that it smoothes out active wrinkles of aging located between the brows, around the eyes, and on the forehead for a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
The Dysport® Procedure
Dysport® is injected using a salt water (saline) solution composed of a highly-diluted form of botulinum toxin to relax muscles in the target areas. Dysport® temporarily prevents underlying muscles in the target areas from contracting (it is this muscle contraction that typically causes wrinkles to appear). The injections are performed using a very tiny needle, and the area can be numbed to minimize discomfort.
The entire Dysport® procedure usually takes only 5 or 10 minutes to complete, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. Most patients experience some mild swelling and temporary redness around the injection sites, but this should disappear over a few hours. Occasionally, bruising may occur. Patients can typically expect to resume normal daily routines immediately after treatment.
The results of Dysport® should be noticeable very quickly after treatment, with a day or so, with the full effects becoming apparent after a few days. Results can last up to four months and even longer in some cases. The effects can be maintained with follow-up Dysport® treatments every 3-4 months. Since Dysport®, like Botox® Cosmetic and Xeomin®, relaxes active frown lines, continued treatment helps to minimize the chance of developing deep lines, or worsening of existing frown lines. So these treatments help to prevent the signs of aging!
Dysport® in Combination with Other Procedures
Dysport® can be used to complement surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures such as eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing and facial fillers for a more comprehensive facial makeover.
The specific risks, benefits, and suitability of Dysport® procedures for your specific needs can be determined only at the time of your consultation with Dr. Yarinsky. All procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual. Most people are very happy with the results but no specific result can be guaranteed.
