Is There an Age Limit for Dysport® Injections

Featured Image

As we age, our muscles make repetitive movements in the face, causing fine lines and wrinkles. These can cause a decrease in the overall aesthetic appearance of your facial skin. However, with Dysport injections, you may be able to reduce the appearance of aging signs. Dr. Jeffrey Patrick Olson can help you to understand your goals and make a plan to help you achieve these goals.

What are Dysport injections and how do they work?

Dysport injections are a botulinum-based formula that has been shown to work more quickly and last longer than BOTOX®. It is often used to treat forehead lines, frown lines, Crow’s feet, and lipstick lines. Dysport works by limiting the movements of the muscles in your face to relax your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After your procedure, you may experience some swelling and redness around your treatment sites; however, this should only last a few days. You will need to sleep sitting up for one night after your treatment, and you can add a cold compress as needed for comfort. Results should be visible within three days after your procedure and they should last for up to four months. However, maintenance treatments can extend this timeframe.

How do I know if I am a good candidate?

Dysport injections are good for those looking to improve the appearance of wrinkles around their eyes, lips, and forehead. This procedure is ideal for those aged 18 – 65; however, there is no set age limit for this treatment. If you have concerns about your age or other factors that may affect your candidacy for Dysport injection, Dr. Olson and our team may be able to help answer your question.
