Hermann Wellness offers competitively-priced Dysport® injections at our St. Petersburg medical spa. The quick and nearly painless injection procedure offers a nonsurgical solution for fine lines and wrinkles that detract from facial aesthetics. Dysport produces results that are similar to Botox, but typically costs less.
Dysport Injections in St. Petersburg
The medical name for Botox is Botulinum Toxin Type A, while Dysport’s is Abobotulinum Toxin Type A. Both are derivatives of a protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Like Botox, Dysport is a neurotoxin that can block acetylcholine signaling and temporarily paralyze muscles that underlie skin wrinkles. Although they are toxic substances, they can be beneficial when administered appropriately in minute amounts.
Both of these prescription injections are used to treat moderate to severe skin wrinkles. They are also used to treat muscle spasms caused by neurological disorders. The best candidates for Dysport injections are in good physical and mental health, have stable body weight, and are under 65 years of age.
Dysport is Safe
While serious side effects of Dysport are possible, they are very rare. Most patients experience only mild and temporary side effects like tingling, numbness, or a headache. The treatment is very convenient. Dr. Hermann typically performs a single injection in about 10 minutes.
You will be able to resume work or other activities immediately after your treatment, as the procedure causes no downtime. While results can be seen immediately, optimum results are typically seen 10-14 days after the procedure. However, note that each patient is unique and individual results will vary.
