Smooth skin is synonymous with health, youth, and vitality. When signs of facial aging start to appear, it’s natural to want to keep them at bay.
Fine lines and wrinkles on the brow and forehead are some of the earliest and most frustrating signs of aging. Wrinkles are an inevitable product of age and, unfortunately, often resistant to topical treatments. This means they can become a persistent concern even for those who take good care of their skin.
Dysport® addresses these concerns and helps you maintain a youthful facial appearance.
Facial lines and wrinkles can make you look tired, worried, or angry, even when you intend to have a neutral expression. If you are unhappy with wrinkles and lines on your forehead, Dysport® can help you.
Dysport® is a neuromodulator used for fine lines and wrinkles. This injectable treatment can help you look younger, and for qualifying candidates, it can be an alternative to facelift surgery. Neuromodulator treatments work well for patients with broader areas of concern, such as multiple fine lines on the forehead.
The active ingredient in Dysport® is a protein called botulinum toxin, specifically abobotulinum toxin-A. This protein is a neurotoxin, meaning it interferes with nerve function.
Botulinum toxin was discovered due to very high amounts historically causing a disease called botulism. However, today’s regulated cosmetic doses only use trace amounts of botulinum toxin proteins, which are safe for human use. Your body will naturally process the toxin after a few months with no unwanted side effects.
Dysport® is FDA-approved to treat facial wrinkles and has been rigorously tested in several independent studies.
Muscle-related wrinkles, sometimes called expression lines, occur when repeated facial movements cause wrinkles to form around your eyes, between your brows, or across your forehead. Neuromodulators can also treat wrinkles in areas that move when you smile, frown, squint, or raise your eyebrows.
In cosmetic use, botulinum toxin blocks particular nerves in facial muscles that cause contraction and tension. This reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and prevents new wrinkle formation. Experienced neuromodulator providers use precisely mapped injection sites to target the problematic muscles. This provides a natural look that doesn’t leave your face feeling “frozen.”
You may experience some minor side effects like redness or sensitivity at the injection site. Overall, the injection is practically painless and has few associated risks. The syringes used to inject neuromodulators are thin and designed for comfort.
The results of Dysport® typically last between three and four months before additional injections are required. Periodic injections are required to maintain a wrinkle-free appearance. Due to the gentle nature of these injectables, having regular treatments poses no added risk.
Your Advanced Aesthetics neuromodulator provider can work with you to create a maintenance plan that meets your needs and keeps you looking your best. You can adjust your doses or schedule at any time if your aesthetic goals change.
