As individuals age, many claim that frown lines and other facial lines and folds cause them to appear angry or tired. As a cosmetic injectable designed to relax facial muscles, Dysport is similar to its predecessor, Botox, and contains a diluted version of botulinum type A. Specifically, Dysport works as a neuromodulator, affecting the transmission of signals from the brain to the muscles. Thus, lines and wrinkles caused by repeated movement and contraction of underlying muscles become softened. While Dysport is notably used to smooth frown lines, these injections may also be used to address the following:
- Lift brows
- Smooth creases on forehead
- Eliminate crow's feet
- Soften glabellar lines (between eyebrows)
- Smooth dimpling on skin
- Decrease the appearance of creases on neck
Men and women appreciate the natural look that Dysport delivers, as it minimizes lines without changing the expression of the rest of the face. Thus, there's no "frozen look." Younger, smoother skin is apparent quickly (within a few days), which is the ultimate measure of success.
For patients that are unhappy with frown lines and creasing on their forehead and neck areas, Dysport Injections give a soft, natural look that blends beautifully with the distinctive characteristics of an individual's face. As underlying facial muscles are relaxed, patients are free to show expression, while lines and creases are soft and smooth.
The Dysport procedure is performed in the office, and is relatively painless, only lasting 20-30 minutes. Dysport solution is injected directly into the treatment site with a tiny needle. There is no downtime following the injections, and patients are released to go about their day immediately following the procedure. However, they are instructed to avoid exercising or massaging the treatment area for up to 4 hours.
Are you wondering if you're a good candidate for Dysport Injections? Most patients 65 and under with mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and other areas of the face and neck can benefit from the natural-looking results of Dysport. Yet, it's important to consult a professional to help you make the most informed decision.
