Wrinkles and fine lines are an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Come to Revitalize You for Dysport injections to minimize your wrinkles and take years off your face.
Dysport is a botulinum toxin injection that can smoothen and soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by freezing your facial muscles and preventing them from folding or creasing your facial skin and leaving lines that can eventually build up into deep wrinkles.
Dysport freezes your facial muscles from causing wrinkles, folds, and fine lines.
Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxinA, a safe processed form of botulinum toxin that can relax and freeze your facial muscles. This is injected into a facial muscle that’s causing the wrinkles you want to treat. After several days, the toxin settles into the muscle to block nerve signals and prevent muscle movement. This can temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Your facial muscles are responsible for facial expressions and any action done on your face. Facial skin is attached to your muscles, which causes certain skin areas to fold or crease when you flex your muscles.
When you’re younger, your skin has enough elasticity to spring back into place without any lasting effect from muscle movement. But, as you get older, your skin loses a lot of substances that keep your skin elastic, which result in lines that begin to form from muscle movement.
After Dysport is injected into your facial muscle, the botulinum toxin prevents your muscle from receiving nerve signals that trigger movement and muscle contractions. By relaxing your muscles and preventing muscle activity, Dysport can prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Dysport is one of the FDA-approved products for wrinkle treatment. Its manufacturer, Allergan, received FDA approval in 2009, making it the second FDA-approved wrinkle treatment after Botox injections.
This means Dysport treatment for wrinkles is safe for use for most patients. However, patients with allergies to Dysport (or any botulinum toxin product), skin infections, neurological disorders, and pregnant or breastfeeding women should not get toxin injectables. During your initial consultation with one of Revitalize You’s cosmetic doctors, your doctor will determine if you are a good candidate for Dysport.
Wrinkles and fine lines are the results of aging and loss of elasticity in your skin. While everyday skincare products can stop skin sag and static wrinkles, it’s not going to stop wrinkles caused by everyday muscle movement. Although wrinkles are inevitable for everyone, Dysport is an option to remove these stubborn signs of aging and reclaim your youth.
By freezing certain facial muscles, we can prevent them from repeatedly folding your skin. On its own, the effects of Dysport injections gradually smoothen out and soften deep wrinkles. This can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines that make you look older.
Dysport is an effective botulinum toxin injection, but the best results only come from experienced providers. Although any licensed medical professional can administer Dysport, you’ll want a provider that knows the right target areas and the best injection methods.
Too few Dysport units and you might not achieve effective results. Too much or done incorrectly, and you risk the toxins spreading to other facial muscles and resulting in an unnatural and frozen look.
When you get your Dysport injections at Revitalize You, you can expect Dysport providers who have had years of experience with satisfied patients. Once the Dysport sets in, your facial expressions can still look natural even with certain facial muscles frozen.
All botulinum toxin injections can treat dynamic facial wrinkles. These are the wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movement. Dysport can treat several common facial wrinkles that develop with muscle movement. These include:
During your initial consultation, our cosmetic doctors can determine if Dysport is right for you. If you’re looking to treat these areas, you may be an ideal patient to receive Dysport injections. Otherwise, we may consider other botulinum toxin injections or, for static facial wrinkles, alternative non-invasive cosmetic treatments.
Dysport injections can take less than an hour. There’s no anesthesia used, so no downtime is required. The pain and side effects are also minimal. You should avoid strenuous activities for a few days to avoid bruising, but otherwise, there’s no need to take time off your regular routine after your procedure to recover.
The alternative to botulinum toxin injections is cosmetic surgery. Although plastic surgery is an effective way of treating wrinkles, they are highly invasive and requires you to take time off. This is a drastic and more costly procedure to take, especially when less invasive treatments like Dysport injections are available.
Our patients can see the difference in their appearance within the first two weeks after their first injection. Dysport injections can last up to five months before needing maintenance treatments. You can maintain your results for as long as you want to keep the rejuvenating effects of Dysport.
With consistent treatment over time, your targeted facial muscles become weaker from non-use. This means that, eventually, your muscles can take longer to regain movement even after the effects of the toxin wear off.
Dysport can work in tandem with other cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers to give your face a more enhanced and rejuvenated appearance. During your initial consultation, we can discuss the different ways to achieve the look you want and recommend other treatments that can enhance the results of your Dysport treatment.
Like other injections, there can be minimal pain and discomfort around the injection site after your treatment. This is the result of your body’s inflammatory reaction to the needle penetrating your skin. Some of the common side effects that you can experience include bleeding, bruising, swelling, and tenderness. These are minor side effects that can fade in a matter of days. Bruising can take up to two weeks to clear out.
Dysport is generally safe for most people who want to treat their wrinkles. Prior to your first injection, our doctors can determine if you are a good candidate for Dysport to avoid any allergic reaction or adverse side effects.
Dysport injections can help you freeze your muscles, prevent existing wrinkles from deepening, and smoothen out creases that can age your face. By minimizing its appearance, you can take back your youth and achieve the naturally appealing appearance you want to achieve.
Your first Dysport injection can take up to two weeks to have a visible effect on your wrinkles. Your following injections can help maintain your youthful appearance and prevent restoring mobility to your muscles and returning your wrinkles and fines to its original state. During the consultation, our doctor will advise how many treatments you may need and what you can expect from our results.
