Years of frowning can result in muscular weakening, causing wrinkles and creases. Frown lines are vertical lines that appear between the brows. Dysport® is a neuromodulator injectable that may be used to reduce the appearance of frown lines, smoothing out your face for a more youthful, happier appearance.
- Dysport® has been FDA approved to help smooth out frown lines.
- Dysport® is an injectable formula that does not require surgery.
- Dysport® has a shorter duration of effect than Botox®, but it lasts approximately four months.
Why Do Patients Choose Dysport®?
Many people think that Dysport® is only for those who want to treat wrinkles and lines due to aging. However, age isn’t the only factor – repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting can also cause these sorts of lines. Also, some people have stronger muscles which result in visible lines appearing at a younger age. Treating wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by muscle activity is key to maintaining your appearance over time. The longer they are left untreated, the deeper and more severe they become – meaning you would need more product and treatments would need to be carried out more frequently.
For patients who have become resistant to Botox® as a result of repeated treatment on a long-term basis, Dysport® may be an excellent alternative. Like other injectable treatments, Dysport® can provide a useful solution for individuals who don’t want to go under the knife yet still want to preserve their appearance from a prior procedure.
How Does It Work?
Dysport® is a neuromodulator that affects the way facial nerves signal muscles to contract, similar to Botox®. Dysport®, when applied near certain muscle groups, can temporarily block nerve signals sent from the brain instructing the muscles to relax, resulting in less apparent brow lines. While both Dysport® and Botox® work in the same manner, they do so at different distances, with Dysport® working over a larger surface area than Botox®. The result is that Dysport® works faster and can last up to four months, as opposed to the three months of results provided by Botox®.
Dysport® Treatment With Your Own Personalization
If you’re getting Dysport® for the first time, a board-certified plastic surgeon or an expert nurse injector will talk with you about your concerns and aesthetic goals. When it’s been determined that Dysport® is suitable for you, the treatments being done will be cleaned. A tiny needle will be inserted into a small area to deliver the medication. Most individuals do not require topical anesthetic cream during treatment; however, if you are less tolerant of needles, this is an option. The injection procedure normally takes around 20 minutes.
Dysport® injections are a non-surgical therapy that allows you to get back to your normal activities quickly after treatment. However, there are still a few things to consider following your treatment:
- Avoid scrubbing or abrading the area you’re treating.
- Use an ice pack to reduce swelling and bruising.
- For the first four hours after treatment, keep your head elevated.
- While redness is visible, avoid the sun and apply sunscreen at all times.
Your Dysport® Results
Many people choose Dysport® over Botox® for their frown lines because the results of Dysport® can become noticeable in just a few days. Once Dysport® takes effect, patients’ brows will appear smoother with a younger, happier expression. Patients generally need to get treated every four months to maintain their results.
Additional Treatment Options
Dysport® is a fantastic product for brow rejuvenation. If you have sagging now or will in the future, you might want to consider having a brow lift to tighten the region. Dysport® can also be used with other medicines, such as dermal fillers, to treat different sorts of wrinkles by filling them in.
