Dysport in McKinney TX
If you have ever considered a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles you have likely come across Botox in your search, but are you at all familiar with Dysport? Very similar to Botox treatment in many ways, Dysport provided by your local professionals of Dermatology Center of McKinney, with Dr. James Ralston, in McKinney, TX, can provide some of the same benefits, and more.
How Dysport Is Similar to Botox
Just like Botox, Dysport is made using a safe and purified form of the botulinum toxin which is used to temporarily relax muscles and stop them from contracting. This can stop wrinkles and fine lines from being created as well as fill out those that already exist.
The procedure for applying Dysport is also the same as with Botox, both are non-invasive treatments that can be performed right in the office by your McKinney, TX, dermatologist. Using a small needle they make a few injections on the areas of concern, often only about 5 or fewer. The entire process takes only about 10 or 15 minutes depending on your needs.
There is little downtime required and often no anesthesia beyond some gentle numbing. Results can be seen in just a few days and can last for months.
Benefits of Dysport
Both Botox and Dysport provide many of the same benefits, but Dysport stands out in a few different ways. The Dysport solution can extend further than Botox, allowing for treatment of larger areas and often requiring fewer shots as a result.
Dysport is also broken down by your body at a slower pace than Botox usually allowing for longer-lasting results.
Which Is Right for You?
Your doctor can help you make that determination upon reviewing your health history and considering other health factors such as allergies. Dysport is usually recommended for patients under the age of 65 and for moderate and severe cases.
