Injectables Q & A

Poway Women’s Care

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a prescription injectable that treats moderate to severe frown lines on your brow. The medication targets the muscles that contract to form deep creases in between your eyebrows, allowing them to relax. This relaxation smooths out your skin, giving you a younger, natural-looking appearance.

You can see noticeable results just after your very first treatment, with fewer lines and creases in your forehead. Dysport doesn’t affect surrounding skin or muscles and you can still make normal facial expressions without looking stiff.

How does Restylane work?

Restylane is an injectable hyaluronic acid treatment that addresses wrinkles and facial folds, especially around your nose and mouth. You may also benefit from Restylane treatments to improve volume in your cheeks and lips, highlighting your natural contours.

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your body, reducing your risk for side effects after treatment. The aesthetics team at Poway Women’s Care performs Restylane treatments in a comfortable office environment and creates a custom treatment plan to help you achieve your desired cosmetic results.

Do I need more than one treatment of Dysport or Restylane?

In some cases, you can expect to see significant results after your initial treatment. Your aesthetician can determine how many treatments you need based on your expectations and the severity of your facial folds and wrinkles.

Both injectable treatments offer long-lasting results and you may not need follow-up treatments for six months or longer. Your Poway Women’s Care provider may also recommend using Restylane and Dysport treatments at the same time to achieve optimal results.

How long does it take to recover from injectable treatments?

One of the biggest benefits to injectables like Restylane and Dysport is that you can return to your usual activities without limitations immediately after your treatment. The staff makes sure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure by using a topical numbing cream before the injections. Injectables require no downtime or recovery period and you can even schedule your appointment during your lunch hour.
