Younger You: What are the advantages of combining Restylane and Dysport?
Restylane® and Dysport® are both used to enhance the facial features by correcting fine-to-moderate wrinkles to result in a fresher, more youthful appearance. “I use Dysport to correct lines of motion,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic expert in Austin, Texas. Doctors have now discovered the advantages of combining both products to achieve even better, more effective results.
Dysport is a popular injectable treatment that can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It is best noted for its natural-looking results. Treatments with Dysport are often compared with those using Botox cosmetic. However, Dysport offers the additional benefits of:
- Less evidence of wrinkles and fine lines
- Diminished crow’s-feet and frown lines
- Faster results
- Dysport does not entail surgery or anesthesia
- Go back to work the same day after treatment
Restylane is a type of dermal filler used to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. It was created to emulate the body’s own hyaluronic acid, and comes in preparations that contain three different particle sizes that allow doctors to customize treatments to the individual.
- Fine particles are used for detailed shaping and fine wrinkles.
- Medium particles are used for medium to severe folds and wrinkles.
- Large particles are used to create volume and for severe wrinkles.
What are the Advantages of Combining Restylane and Dysport?
There are many advantages of using a combination of Restylane and Dysport together. The first is convenience. Restylane and Dysport treatments can be administered during one session. This is not only convenient, but is also a safe and common practice that yields excellent results.
Studies suggest that patients treated with Dysport and Restylane in the same areas of the face have better and longer-lasting results than when either product was used alone. The combination of the two products provide a softer, more natural look than many other treatment modalities.
While Dysport works to relax fine to moderate facial lines and wrinkles, Restylane fills in those lines. Dysport helps to maintain the benefits of the Restylane in a combination that works beautifully to restore a youthful, well-rested appearance.
