Beautifully smoothing away wrinkles

Aging is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fight it.

Dysport is a particularly effective and potent weapon in the anti-aging arsenal, known for beautifully smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines to reveal a more youthful, radiant complexion. At Total Glow, we tailor your injectables to your unique anatomy, so you receive results that reflect your individuality and vitality.

What is Dysport?

Like BOTOX, Dysport is a medical form of botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that works to paralyze the tiny facial muscles responsible for creating wrinkles. Once the muscles are temporarily blocked, the skin relaxes and a youthful countenance is restored. Dysport has helped millions of clients to recapture their zest for life and like what they see in the mirror once more.

What are the advantages of Dysport in Palo Alto?

  • Safe, non-surgical and non-invasive
  • No anesthesia, scarring or incisions
  • No side effects, discomfort or downtime
  • Improves self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s image
  • Soft, natural appearance to the skin
  • Creates a more youthful, engaging look
  • Spreads evenly within the muscles for uniform results

How is Dysport different from BOTOX?

Dysport is slightly more diluted than BOTOX, using smaller molecules that are less likely to be broken down by the body. Dysport can be more effective in treating larger areas than BOTOX, as it spreads quickly and easily.

Who makes the best Dysport candidate?

Dysport makes an excellent alternative to BOTOX, and works wonders for those suffering from facial lines, wrinkles, creases and folds.

If you are pregnant or nursing, however, our aestheticians may suggest a different approach. When undergoing Dysport Palo Alto clients should be in good health, both physically and emotionally, and they should have realistic expectations for what Dysport can accomplish, based on a private consultation at our Bay Area offices.

What can I expect from Dysport recovery?

There is really no downtime to speak of with Dysport. Your skin may appear red or raised at the injection site, but this will last a matter of minutes, not even hours. Don’t lie down or exercise for at least 4 hours after your session, but you can return to your normal routine such as work or school with no problems.

What results can I expect from Dysport?

Your results from Dysport injections will appear within 48 hours of treatment. Over the next two weeks, your results will continue to improve. This means that Dysport is faster-acting than BOTOX, which takes three days to produce a noticeable improvement, and three weeks to achieve optimal results. Your results will last approximately four to six months, notably more enduring than BOTOX’s three-to-four-month longevity.

What can I do to maximize my Dysport results?

One of the lesser-known strategies for optimizing your neuromodulator results involves exercising the target muscles soon after treatment.

This simple measure helps direct the solution where it’s needed most, helping your results develop faster and look better. If you are seeking to lift your brow with Dysport, you will want to raise your eyebrows 40 times, rest for 10 minutes, and then repeat for a total of three sets. If you are undergoing Dysport injections to treat deep forehead wrinkles, you will scowl as hard as you can 40 times, rest 10 minutes, and repeat for a total of three sets.
