What Is Dysport Used for?

If you want to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face, then a clinically proven solution may make a big difference in your appearance. At East Bay Aesthetic Surgery in Pleasanton, CA we know that Dysport can be a good option to help reduce the signs of aging, particularly for those who have not had much success with other aesthetic treatments.

What Is Dysport Used For?

Dysport is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. In particular, this neurotoxin injectable is used to smooth frown lines and forehead wrinkles, as well as relax other muscles in the face that may be contributing to the appearance of deep wrinkles. This injectable treatment is a temporary solution that can take years off your overall appearance.

Similar to Botox, this injectable is a minimally invasive treatment that can help rewind the clock and even be used as a preventative treatment for future fine lines and wrinkles. While similar to Botox, Dysport is a new neurotoxin that is gaining a growing reputation for temporarily relaxing muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles to form on the face. Clinical trials have determined that this neurotoxin injectable is a reliable and safe non-surgical solution to refine and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin.

Why Do We Get Wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by a combination of factors. The first factor is the depletion of collagen and elastin in the skin as we age, which allows the skin to become laxer and thinner. As the skin changes, the muscles beneath the skin cause the skin to move more freely, which eventually gives way to creating creases on dynamic areas of the face.

By the mid-20s and early 30s, most people are producing a low enough amount of skin-supporting proteins that fine lines begin to show up, particularly on areas of the face where expressions are made, such as the forehead and around the mouth. Eventually, the repeated muscle contractions caused by making expressions will create permanent lines on the face.

How Does Dysport Work?

The key to an anti-aging neurotoxin treatment like Dysport is the main active ingredient, botulinum toxin typeA. This neurotoxin prevents the movement of muscles in the face that contribute to wrinkles. By relaxing the facial muscles, there are no muscle contractions that cause the skin of the face to crease as expressions are made, and as the muscles of your face relax, so does the appearance of wrinkles on your face.

This neurotoxin treatment is administered via a small, thin needle, which delivers the special botulinum toxin typeA formula directly into the muscles of the face. This particular injectable has a slightly thinner texture than Botox, meaning it has a more even spread beneath the skin that produces subtler, more natural-looking results.

What Can This Treat?

This treatment was developed to specifically treat frown lines. Frown lines are also known as glabellar lines and can be found between the eyebrows. These frown lines form when people make certain expressions, such as anger or worry; people who often squint may also develop pronounced glabellar lines. This treatment targets fiver muscles between the eyebrows to relax the muscles and smooth away the appearance of frown lines.

What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?

One of the top benefits of this treatment is the fact that this injectable is a non-surgical solution to many anti-aging concerns. Before neurotoxin treatments like this one, the only treatment avenue many people had for wrinkles on the forehead were surgical procedures like brow lifts or facelifts. Fortunately, with the advent of neurotoxin injectables, patients can receive quality anti-aging results without the pain of surgical procedures. Other benefits include:

Smooth Away Unwanted Lines

This is the perfect wrinkle relaxing treatment if you don’t like the effects of the natural aging process on your skin. Thanks to incredible advances in cosmetic treatments, you no longer have to live with frown lines and wrinkles on the upper face.  Today, you only need to commit to a quick, pain-free injection session roughly twice per year. Few anti-aging methods will smooth away wrinkles as effectively as this treatment.

Prevent Future Wrinkles

One incredible benefit of this injectable wrinkle relaxant is it can be used as a preventative treatment. Depending on genetics and lifestyle, people start to develop wrinkles in their late 20s to early 30s. You can receive this treatment safely even if you don’t have deep wrinkles yet. As soon as you notice your skin indenting, you can get injections and prevent the formation of lines and wrinkles. Stopping or temporarily halting the development of wrinkles can help you look younger for longer, particularly if you are noticing early visible signs of aging.

Natural-Looking Results

Another exciting benefit you can expect from this treatment is the results look completely natural. Nobody will know you received professional help to achieve smooth skin unless you tell them. This can be a particularly important factor for those who want to enjoy subtle results or results that are not obvious. After all, one key to outstanding beauty is the secret of your anti-aging methods.

Additionally, one of the most common misconceptions about botulinum toxin treatments is they freeze your face, causing you to look unnatural. However, you don’t have to worry about this when you visit our office.  We can tell by how deep your wrinkles and folds are the precise dosages you need to erase your folds without freezing your face. Furthermore, the concentrated botulinum toxin is injected into strategic locations so you don’t have to worry about it relaxing muscles that aren’t causing wrinkles and folds. You will be able to make facial expressions naturally and fully after your treatment is complete.

Long-Lasting Results

Like Botox, you can expect the results of this treatment to last for about three to four months at a time. This is considered a fairly long-lasting result, especially compared to over-the-counter products that may only last for hours or days at a time. Injectable treatments such as this one can allow you to enjoy your daily life without worrying about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

Sometimes, if you respond favorably to this treatment, you can enjoy the results of this neurotoxin for a bit longer than four months. You can also enjoy longer-lasting results when you take care of your skin or use anti-aging skincare products to enhance your results.

Fast Results

The results of this treatment are also fast to show up. Most people will be able to enjoy the results of this treatment within several days of their appointment. In fact, the vast majority of patients will notice a significant improvement in their overall appearance about three to four days after their treatment appointment. The results of this treatment will improve for a few more days as the injectable settles within your skin and starts to take effect.

Effective and Reliable

While at-home skincare products can do a lot to maintain the results of your treatment, it’s important to remember that at-home products are just helping hands. Most over-the-counter products are not powerful enough to make significant changes to the appearance of your skin. this is why injectable treatments like this one are so popular. Not only will this treatment produce effective anti-aging results, but the results are reliable and will last much longer than any at-home routine or product.

Safe and Gentle

Botulinum toxin injectable treatments have been deemed safe by the FDA for several years – and Dysport in particular has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of glabellar lines. If you have not used an injectable treatment like this one before, you may need to complete a simple allergy test to verify you are a good candidate. Most people are good candidates since this injectable treatment works gently with the body’s natural processes to smooth away the appearance of wrinkles.

No Downtime

Another major benefit of this treatment is the fact that there is no formal recovery time associated with neurotoxin treatment. Most patients go back to work after this treatment. The only thing you will need to do during the first few days after your treatment is avoiding heat, strenuous exercise, or excessive sunlight. If you do have to be outside during the daytime, a simple SPF will help protect your skin and your results.

Easily Combined

One exciting benefit of this treatment is how easily it can be combined with other cosmetic treatments to enhance results. Our medspa has a robust catalog of cosmetic treatments that can be combined with this neurotoxin injectable to achieve specific results. For example, using dermal fillers on other areas of the face can fill in hollow areas or contour the face. Superficial aesthetic treatments like chemical peels, dermabrasion, Hydrafacial, and microneedling can also help refine the appearance of the skin and help you look your best.

Successful Treatment

Since its release, this neurotoxin treatment has been successfully used in over 60 countries worldwide and has helped thousands of patients feel good about their appearance. About 95% of people who have tried this treatment express interest in having this treatment again. This treatment can also be successfully alternated with Botox to enjoy continuous results for as long as possible without developing a tolerance to either product.

Patient-First Treatment

One of the nicer things about this neurotoxin injectable is the fact that it puts you, the patient, in charge of your aesthetic choices. The precise nature of this treatment allows your skin specialist to target specific muscle groups so you can look exactly the way you want. We put your treatment goals and expectation at the forefront of your treatment process.

Many Good Candidates
