Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Dysport® Treatment in Webster, League City, Friendswood and Houston, TX
Patients who are concerned with forehead wrinkles or frown lines may want to consider Dysport®. This newly approved procedure is similar to Botox® and contains the same primary ingredient. With Dysport®, results are noticed sooner and may last longer. Clear Lake Dermatology offers Dysport® injections to patients in in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area.
During the procedure, the doctor will inject Dysport® into as many as five different areas over and around the eyebrows. Upon injection, Dysport® begins blocking signals from the nerves in the forehead area, which causes muscle activity to cease. When this happens, frown lines are diminished because these muscles are unable to contract.
Some numbness and tingling may be felt after the procedure, which normally takes less than 20 minutes to complete. These sensations usually go away after about an hour. In some cases, more severe side effects can occur, including difficulty swallowing or breathing. Some people may also develop botulism after having Dysport®. Signs of this condition include muscle weakness throughout the body, blurred or double vision, inability to speak clearly, and an uncontrollable bladder. If you have any of these symptoms following the procedure, seek medical treatment immediately.
To reduce the possibility of severe side effects, patients should thoroughly disclose any medications they are taking before having a Dysport® treatment. Patients should also disclose a full medical history including any allergies, breathing difficulties, or muscle problems beforehand. Pregnant women should forgo this procedure until after they deliver, and breastfeeding mothers should also wait until their babies are weaned before receiving a Dysport® treatment.
