More Injectable Options for Wrinkles in the Havertown, Main Line, PA and wider Philadelphia Area
Dysport ® (abobotulinumA) is among the many wrinkle-relaxing treatments available at Mind Your Skin. Just like BOTOX Cosmetic®, this neuromodulator causes specific muscles to relax. As a result this diminishes their ability to pull the overlying skin into visible lines and folds. This smoothes frown lines, we call them glabellar lines, which form between the eyes just above the nose. They are most apparent when you make a confused or stern expression—anything that pulls the forehead down and eyebrows together. In addition Dysport ® (abobotulinumtoxinA) works well for transverse lines across the forehead and crow’s feet (“smile lines”) around the eyes. Dysport ®, Jeuveau™, and Xeomin® are at times available at lower cost in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. But Botox Cosmetic® remains the gold standard in the industry.
Dysport ® (abobotulinumtoxinA), came to the US about 10 years ago. It has approval for use in 69 countries. It provides long lasting results and may have a little faster onset. Over half of users see improvement 2-3 days after treatment. Just like its competitors the overall patient treatment satisfaction rate is 97%. It takes about three Dysport® units to match the efficacy of one Botox® unit and this can be confusing. The cost of treatment however tends to be similar.
Dysport® is developed and produced by Ipsen and distributed in the US by Galderma .
DYSPORT® IN PHILADELPHIA AND BEYOND
Norbertus Robben, MD, performs all of the injections himself, working with each patient to determine which injectable and which pattern of injection is right for our Havertown, Main Line, PA, and surrounding areas. The four neuromodulator (Jeuveau™ is the newest) options are all similar, but have subtle differences that we review during an initial consultation. In combination with fillers, neuromodulators can help achieve a ‘liquid face-lift’. In our experienced hands, whether you are from Philadelphia, Havertown, Springfield or Media, West Chester, PA, the Main Line around Bryn Mawr, Ardmore or Wynnewood, you can expect months of a softer, more youthful look!
Something to keep in mind: Dysport® and two of the other Botulinum toxins can induce an immune response in your system. As a result over time, you would become somewhat resistant. We can try and overcome this by increasing your dose (treating more often would make the issue worse). This is known as dose-creep and occurs in up to 14% of patients. We can also switch to Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) which has never been reported to have this issue. The reason is explained in the link. Please bear in mind that it may take a few cycles to wash out your existing antibodies. As that process is allowed to take place, the Xeomin becomes more efficient and you may experience the response you initially got with your other botulinum product.
