Lines and wrinkles have a way of making people look older than they feel. Luckily, as technology advances, people have more options for matching how they look on the outside with how they feel on the inside. Dysport® is a great example of a safe and effective way to eliminate those forehead lines and wrinkles that age you prematurely.
What Is Dysport®?
It is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that is injected directly into the muscles and helps to temporarily improve lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows. These lines are more technically referred to as glabellar lines. Dysport® works on moderate to severe frown lines and is for adults only. The aesthetic injectable is a neuromodulator similar to BOTOX®.
How Does Dysport® Work?
Both squinting and frowning can result in those annoying lines between your eyebrows. That is because when you do those behaviors you are contracting those muscles. Over time, your skin loses its elasticity and does not “bounce back” from those muscle contractions as well. Dysport® prevents these muscles from being able to contract. As a result, frown lines and wrinkles are temporarily reduced. Consistently correcting all these things can lead to a more youthful appearance.
A treatment session is quick and easy. A trained member of our team will simply inject Dysport® into the muscles in your forehead. This is a simple procedure that does not require anesthesia. Depending on the area treated, you may receive one or more injections. Our doctor may choose to use a topical anesthetic before the injections or a cold pack afterward. There is no downtime associated with this treatment and you can immediately go back to your normal routine.
When Will I See Results?
On average, people see results approximately ten days after treatment. The effects of this injectable can be seen anywhere from three to six months, after which time follow-up injections may be necessary. Based on your individual aesthetic goals, our professionals will help you decide if Dysport® or BOTOX® is right for you, as these injectables are not interchangeable.
