Are you looking for a treatment that can smooth away wrinkles without surgery? At Dermatology & Skin Care Associates in Mason, OH, we have a solution: Dysport, which is recommended for men and women hoping to enjoy a more youthful appearance. This treatment is safe, effective, and delivers results you can truly see. It’s also an easy way to dip your toes into cosmetic therapies.
Dysport Can Get Rid of Frown Lines
This injectable helps erase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead. Its consistency makes it well-suited to this particular site – thin and easily spreadable so it can cover a larger area. The result is a smooth, natural-looking canvas that won’t alert anyone you’ve had treatment. But you will look fresher, more rested, and significantly younger.
Frown lines usually develop with repeated muscle movements. If you often use facial expressions when communicating with others, you’re more likely to develop these lines than someone who’s less expressive. This is not a bad trait – it’s part of what makes you unique. We simply tailor treatment in a way that meets your needs.
The Characteristics of a Neuromodulator
Dysport is classified as a neuromodulator, a group of injectables that reduces muscle activity where injected. They work by blocking messages that freely travel between nerves and muscles. Under normal circumstances, those messages prompt muscles to contract. Blocking them allows targeted muscles to rest and, at the same time, gives your skin a much-needed respite from movement.
As those muscles relax, lines are smoothed away for a softer appearance. The good news is you’ll still be able to emote as normal, including laughing, smiling, and frowning. We have 42 muscles in our faces, and temporarily “freezing” specific muscles will only affect the way your skin looks, nothing else. This helps explain why neuromodulators have held the most popular spot for over two decades in a very competitive field of cosmetic therapies.
The Fine Print Details
You’ll likely see the effects of treatment within one to two days; some patients notice them immediately, although full results in all cases continue to develop for about a week. You can expect your results to last up to six months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the injected serum. You won’t instantly go from having smooth skin to once again seeing the same lines as before. Instead, you’ll perceive a gradual increase in your lines returning.
As those lines once more become visible, you’ll know it’s time for another round of treatment. We generally recommend patients schedule maintenance sessions every three or four months; repeating treatment before it completely wears off keeps your skin from returning to its previous baseline. And each subsequent treatment builds upon the previous so you’ll eventually be able to stretch more time between injections.
Stave Off the Signs of Aging
Neuromodulators are known for erasing existing wrinkles as well as preventing new from forming. Many patients seek treatment at younger ages – sometimes in their late 20s or early 30s – for this very reason. Their goal is to prevent the signs of aging rather than treat them. No matter when you start this injectable, one fact remains true: the longer you continue receiving it, the longer you keep wrinkles (both current and new) at bay.
What To Expect
Your first step in preparing for treatment is to come in for an initial consultation. Our staff will assess your facial structure in addition to the cause and severity of your lines and wrinkles. Once we determine this treatment is right for you, we’ll provide a list of preparation instructions. Key highlights will include:
- Avoiding alcohol
- Stopping NSAIDs
- Putting away cigarettes
- Wearing daily sunscreen
During your session, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment site. We’ll then evenly and strategically administer the injectable. Sessions are quick, usually taking 30 minutes or less to complete, and often become part of patients’ routine skincare regimens. After we’ve answered any questions you may have, you’ll be free to leave the office. Some steps you can take to enhance the durability of your results include:
- Staying out of the sun
- Keeping hands away from the treatment site
- Avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and strenuous exercise
Benefits of Treatment
One of the first benefits we like sharing with patients is the lack of downtime required for this treatment. It’s minimally invasive and can therefore be performed on your lunch break or while you’re out running errands.
This injectable is also extremely safe with a long record of outstanding results. Millions of people around the world have been treated with neuromodulators and continue to use them faithfully to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment has been FDA-approved since 2009 and was used even earlier in the United Kingdom. Finally, you can combine it with other therapies, such as dermal fillers, to restore volume and lift to strategic areas.
