Have you begun to develop unsightly wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet? Are you ready to visit Larry Landsman, MD, PA at The Aesthetic Dermatology Center of Vero Beach in Vero Beach, FL to get rid of them once and for all? If so, you might be considering a procedure such as Botox.Dysport

What you need to know, however, is that Botox is not your only option for fast and easy wrinkle removable in Vero Beach, FL. Dr. Landsman also offers a great Botox alternative you may want to consider called Dysport.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a cosmetic procedure in which a medical professional carefully injects a toxin known as abobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A) into your muscle. When done correctly, these injections can be used to treat upper limb spasticity and cervical dystonia as well as wrinkles, crow's feet and frown lines--all without surgery or major downtime.

What are the Benefits of Dysport?

Dysport is a quick, easy and nearly painless procedure that offers the significant reduction of wrinkles within a matter of days. The procedure is safer and far less invasive than plastic surgery, and the downtime is minimal. The effects wear off after about three months, so if you aren't pleased with your results, they aren't permanent.

To learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of Dysport and Botox, call Dr. Landsman in Vero Beach, FL to discuss your options and to figure out which one might be right for you.

Is Dysport Safe?

Yes, the FDA has approved Dysport as a safe and effective treatment. This does not mean it is without any side effects, however. Common side effects of Dysport include bruising, bleeding, pain, swelling, headache, fever, cold-like symptoms, muscle weakness at the site of the injection and tiredness, among others. Seek medical help immediately if you experience trouble breathing or talking, excessive swelling, severe muscle weakness, a change in heartbeat, chest pain or loss of bladder control.

Dysport is not for individuals who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, asthma, facial muscle weakness, bleeding disorders, heart disease or diabetes. It also may not be appropriate for those who are pregnant or who may become pregnant or those who have had surgery or other botulinum toxin injections recently. Speak with your doctor about your health history and your risk before having the procedure done.

If you're ready to look youthful and vibrant again, but you don't want to undergo major surgery or spend a great deal of time recovering, Dysport or Botox may be right for you!
