Men and women looking for non-surgical improvement of their facial appearance are discovering Dysport, sometimes referred to as a BOTOX alternative. Dysport cosmetic injections are one of the non-invasive cosmetic procedures practiced by our plastic surgeons at Peer Group in northern New Jersey.
In 2009, the FDA approved Dysport® to treat frown lines caused by the action of muscles of the forehead between the eyes, the same cosmetic indication as Botox®. Like Botox®, Dysport® relaxes muscles, softening or eliminating frown and worry lines and crow’s feet. Some users believe that Dysport® is more effective than Botox® injections in correcting crow’s feet, and while safe, this use is considered an off-label application. The injections are virtually painless and are associated with little or no down time. Treated wrinkles are noticeably smoother within 24-48 hours and the results typically last anywhere from 3-6 months.
Our plastic surgeons can help you decide if Dysport® or other alternatives to BOTOX are right for you.
