As people grow older, they often develop dynamic wrinkles across the face. These wrinkles are caused by the muscles responsible for facial expression. Regular and ongoing use of expressive muscles can result in the formation of laugh lines, frown lines and crow’s feet.
With Dysport®, it is possible to quickly smooth dynamic wrinkles out for a fresher and more youthful appearance overall. Best of all, Dysport® injections are non-invasive, short and do not entail any significant recovery time.
What is Dysport®?
This is a purified protein that can temporarily block nerve signals to muscles that are responsible for dynamic wrinkling. Once the nerve signals are blocked, the expressive muscles relax and the facial skin smooths out. Given that Dysport® results are only temporary, these injections can be safely repeated two to four times per year for ongoing cosmetic maintenance.
What to Expect During a Dysport® Procedure
With Dysport®, there is no need for incisions or tissue removal. In fact, these treatments are so simple and safe that many people opt to receive their injections right on their lunch breaks. During a typical procedure, the injections are simply made into the desired areas. Once the work is finished, you will be immediately free to go and can return to your normal schedule right away.
There is no special aftercare to perform with Dysport®. Given the non-invasive nature of this procedure, side effects are both minimal and relatively uncommon. For example, many people experience mild redness across the treated area, but this usually abates on its own within just one to two hours.
While many patients report instant, noticeable changes in their appearances, Dysport® results can take several days to fully manifest. You may notice your skin looking smoother and more youthful within just one to two days, but continued improvements can be expected for up to two weeks after your injections.
How to Know if You’re a Good Candidate
This injectable is for the treatment of mild to moderate dynamic wrinkling at the forehead and around the mouth and eyes. It will not correct areas that have lost significant amounts of facial volume nor will it have any noticeable impact on deep and severe facial wrinkling. Dysport® can, however, be safely paired with a number of other non-invasive cosmetic treatments. When multiple issues exist, you and our provider can devise a multipronged treatment plan that will help you safely meet your cosmetic goals.
