Dysport is a neuromodulator similar to Botox used in the reduction of wrinkles. Dysport can be used safely and effectively to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles through relaxing the muscles that cause them. Dysport spreads to a wider area than Botox, meaning that potentially fewer units could be used in a particular area. Dysport is a great tool for achieving a younger-looking, refreshed appearance, and we are happy to offer it here at MI Skin Dermatology in Washington DC.
Whether you are interested in Dysport specifically or are simply looking for treatment for the reduction of wrinkles, get in touch with the experienced dermatologists at MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington DC. Dr. Melda Isaac and her team can help you improve your appearance through neuromodulator care tailored to your unique needs. To learn more through a scheduled appointment, call 202-393-SKIN today!
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles responsible for certain wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles caused by constant repetitive motion of certain muscles, so using a neuromodulator to relax the muscles allows the wrinkles to soften. Dysport is great for preventative care of wrinkles, as it can preemptively stop muscles from causing wrinkles through repetition.
As we age, our skin stops producing as much collagen and elastin, which are two naturally occurring substances responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. This combined with repetitive muscle movement is what causes certain wrinkles on our faces. Using a neuromodulator such as Dysport can help to soften the appearance of wrinkles, leading to a rejuvenated appearance.

Why Choose This Neuromodulator Treatment?
Dysport is a safe, effective, and FDA-approved means of wrinkle reduction. There are very few side effects, which may include bruising or swelling at the injection site that disappears on their own in a few days. The procedure itself is quick and painless and can be made even more comfortable for the patient through use of a topical anesthetic if needed. A Dysport procedure can be done on a person’s lunch break with no recovery time afterwards needed.
Some people may fear that a neuromodulator procedure could lead to a “frozen” expression, as the muscles of the face are affected. However, when done by a skilled, board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac in Washington, D.C., these fears are unfounded. A skilled dermatologist will be able to selectively target muscles in such a way that only the muscles affecting the wrinkles are affected and the surrounding muscles are untouched. This way, you will still be able to make all of your everyday expressions!
