Say Goodbye to Wrinkles with Dysport
Don’t you hate it when you get up in the morning, look into the mirror, and realize that you have more wrinkles on your face than you can bear to stand? It can be quite scary to see a Grinch-like forehead, crow’s feet, and deepening laugh lines. Fortunately, there is a very effective injectable treatment for wrinkles: Dysport.
Dysport is a prescription injection proven to help smooth out the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows. It is made from the same neurotoxin as Botox and received FDA approval in 2009, but it has been widely used to treat facial lines and folds in South America, Europe, and other parts of the world for years.
Dysport was originally developed as a treatment for neuromuscular disorders. It’s great for treating a wide area of small wrinkles with fewer injections. Dysport provides natural-looking results to the target area without changing the look or movement in the rest of the face, allowing you to express yourself without any restrictions.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Your face makes various movements whenever you express yourself. For instance, you may squint, frown, or smile at specific triggers. This causes the facial muscles to contract, and when they do, skin creases appear. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkles, because they disappear when the movements stop.
With time, the muscles become fixed in their contracted positions, making the creases deepen into permanent, or static, lines and wrinkles. Your surgeon will inject Dysport directly into the muscles responsible for these wrinkles, relaxing them and allowing the skin to be flat and smooth again.
What’s the Treatment Like?
To treat wrinkles, Dysport is injected into the muscles at the point where the lines are visible. It takes three to four injections to treat wrinkles on the forehead. Most of the patients who undergo the procedure find it painless.
The treatment requires around 15 minutes to perform. It will take two to three days for you to see the effects of the treatment, as the muscles need time to relax.
How Long Does It Last?
Dysport can help improve the look of your frown lines for up to four months. Repeated maintenance treatments yield results comparable to your first use. There is only minimal downtime after the procedure, meaning you can get back to your daily activities almost immediately.
When used in right amounts by a licensed physician, Dysport is a perfectly safe injectable treatment and an excellent fix for age lines and wrinkles in the skin.
