As we age, the skin on our faces, especially around the eyes, can look loose and thin. This adds to the appearance of wrinkles, making you look older and often tired. In their Vancouver, Washington practice, Dr. Michael Workman’s staff offers treatments of Dysport®. This injectable smooths wrinkles on the face, including crow’s feet.

Dysport is comprised of the botulinum toxin. When injected into the muscle beneath the wrinkle, the wrinkle smooths out and the appearance of your skin is improved.

Dysport is FDA approved for patients over 18 years old who struggle with wrinkles on the face, including:

  • frown lines
  • forehead lines
  • crow’s feet

We will plan the injection sites based on your specific needs. If you have any questions about your treatment, we will be happy to answer them during your consultation.

Before the Procedure

Prior to your treatment of Dysport in Vancouver, your face will be carefully cleansed. The injection sites may be marked out on your face and used as a guide for the treatment. An anesthetic is not usually necessary, but if you feel you need one, a topical anesthetic can be applied at this time.

The Procedure

As she injects the Dysport solution into the chosen treatment sites, the injector will take care to access the underlying muscle. When Dysport is injected into the muscle under a wrinkle, it limits the contraction of the muscle. In turn, this causes the wrinkle to smooth out and its appearance to diminish.

After the Procedure

When you leave Dr. Workman’s practice after your treatment, you will receive specific aftercare instructions. Typical instructions request that you limit your activity somewhat for the next several hours and ask that you not lie down during this time. You should also avoid alcohol for one day after treatment. You may experience some swelling or redness, but these are both temporary side effects and will dissipate within several hours.

Seeing Results

Many patients see the results of a Dysport treatment within a few days, with maximum effects becoming clear within two weeks. The treated wrinkles will be greatly diminished and your skin will appear younger and smoother. The effects of the treatment can last anywhere from four to six months. At this point, many patients choose to return to Dr. Workman’s practice for touch-up treatments.
