Effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Dysport® is a minimally-invasive way to reduce facial fine lines. By prompting the muscles to relax, the injections result in smoother skin that can’t furrow and create folds. Unlike facial surgery, Dysport requires no incisions, and lets you return to work and social activities right away, making it a great way to boost your look before a big event.
Dr. Angelchik was certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) in 1996 and successfully completed a rigorous recertification process in 2006 and 2016. He participates in the Maintenance of Certification program through the ABPS. He is a member in good standing of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has also been named to Castle & Connolly’s Top Doctors in America every year since 1996.
Dysport is a minimally-invasive procedure, requiring just minutes to be administered by injection. After it is injected, Dysport works by blocking the communication between nerves and specific muscles. The targeted muscles are not able to contract, so they relax instead of furrowing. The result is a smoother facial appearance. This is because a lifetime of movement, like squinting or frowning, can cause folds and wrinkles to form.
Patients in the Peoria, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ area looking for an improvement in wrinkles and furrows without surgery can benefit most from this treatment. Dysport is FDA-approved to treat lines between the eyebrows, but it’s also used for crow’s feet and forehead lines, as well as lines around the nose and corners of your mouth. These “off-label” uses are common for Dysport and BOTOX®. During your consultation with Dr. Angelchik, it’s important to discuss your health and any conditions that could put your safety at risk. You should also be sure to discuss your expectations for this procedure to make sure that they are in-line with what Dysport can achieve.
Dysport can be used to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the following areas:
These furrows between the brows can cause the upper face to appear heavy because of folds that make you look more tired or angry than you feel. Dysport can smooth and relax these wrinkles while also preventing them from further developing.
These lines are caused by expressiveness in the forehead over a lifetime, and can be relaxed by Dysport. If they’re too severe, however, a brow lift may be better indicated.
Although this is an off-label use of Dysport, many patients find great results when treating fine lines around the eyes that are caused by squinting or laughing over many years.
I have had botox and dysport at other places, usually by a nurse injector and it never takes right away, i always have to come back to add more, but Dr. Angelchik got it right the first time and i was so happy, and his staff was very kind and caring i would recommend him to anyone. Read More >
Dysport can be administered in-office by Dr. Angelchik in only a fifteen-minute session. Most patients benefit from a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort during the injection process. Once you’re comfortable, the product is carefully injected into specific muscles using multiple small injections. This ensures that the product is evenly distributed. There’s no downtime with Dysport, and you can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment.
It’s highly important to avoid touching or massaging the injection area, since this can cause the product to spread to unwanted areas. Most patients see results with Dysport within a few days, which is a shorter timeframe than Botox. Dysport can last for around four months, although this can be unique to each patient. Dr. Angelchik can recommend a treatment package of other non-surgical options like professional skincare treatments or other injectables to further maintain your look and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Injectable treatments are increasingly popular in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ area because of their effectiveness without the hassle of downtime.
