Frown lines, other facial wrinkles and fine lines are caused by motion of the facial muscles and over time often result in stretched looking skin and deep lines near these muscles. And, as this skin loses its elasticity, it begins to sag. While this can happen anywhere on your body, it’s important to note that your face has a high concentration of these fine muscles, which is why it will more often than not be the first places you begin noticing these signs of aging.
Dysport offers a non-surgical solution that we use to successfully treat and reduce and/or eliminate frown lines on the forehead, creases, crow’s feet, smile lines and more.
Dysport is made from a substance called botulinum toxin which directly affect the muscles by reducing and limiting movement reducing the lines these movements cause.
Dysport works as a muscle relaxant, blocking the signal sent from the nerve to the muscles. By limiting this signal and the activity of the muscles, the movements that cause frown lines are reduced for a period of time and the skin has an opportunity to heal itself. Frown lines will fade over the course of several months and the skin will begin to look smoother and softer.
Dysport is administered to our patients in a short series of injections and usually completed in 10 to 20 minutes. There is no down time and most patients can drive themselves to and from their appointment, unlike many other cosmetic procedures. Most patients are able to receive the injections without anesthetic.
While most patients immediately notice the difference in their face, the full effects of Dysport will become increasingly noticeable over the course of the next week or so following your treatment. The effects typically last 4-6 months but may vary from patient to patient and treatments can be repeated as desired every 6-8 months to help your achieve and maintain your firmer, smoother and more youthful looking skin.
