Dysport Injections in Miami, FL
Average Cost: From $1000
Everyday expressions and emotions can create lines and wrinkles on the face as we age. In order to counteract the effects of aging, Dr. Maercks offers treatment in the form of Dysport. This medication is often used to remove forehead lines and give patients a more youthful-looking appearance.
As a purified Botulinum neurotoxin used for cosmetic purposes, the FDA approved Dysport in 2009. Dysport can be used to reduce muscle spasms along with the appearance of Crow’s feet and frown lines, although it is most commonly used to smooth the forehead.
What to Expect
Patients usually don’t even need a topical injection of anesthetic, as the procedure is fairly painless. Based on the amount of muscle mass at the treatment site, the dosage is set by Dr. Maercks after the injection site is chosen. After injection, Dysport works to smooth out wrinkles by decreasing muscle contractions.
The procedure is typically over in about 15 minutes, although most patients return for a follow-up treatment. Follow-up treatments can only be scheduled after 90 days has passed from the first treatment.
Patients require no downtime after treatment and can often return to daily activities immediately. Dr. Maercks requires that no alcohol be consumed and that the patient remain in an upright position for six hours after treatment. Results are usually noticeable within a few days of the Dysport injection.
There are possible minor side effects to Dysport injections, including:
- Reaction or pain at the injection site
There is also the possibility that the medication may spread past the injection site. If this happens, the patient may experience:
- Loss of bladder control
- Hoarseness of voice
- Change or loss of voice
- Double or blurred vision
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of strength
- Breathing or swallowing problems
Dr. Maercks will discuss the possible side effects with each patient and create an individualized plan to minimize side effects and ensure optimal results.
