If your face is showing fine lines, deep creases, and crow’s feet, a relatively new non-surgical treatment can erase the years off your appearance while leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed. Dysport® is very similar to BOTOX® by working to block key nerve signals that temporarily relax muscles in the face that cause wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. When facial muscles relax, deep wrinkles and lines dramatically soften and disappear. Dysport® achieves incredible results that can last up to six months without the need for invasive surgery, general anesthesia, or time to recover.
Since 2009, Dysport® has been FDA-approved in the U.S. for cosmetic reasons and has shown a long track record in terms of both safety and success across the globe. In fact, Dysport® is used in more than 70 countries worldwide today.
Dysport® Cosmetic injections are an effective, safe, and simple way to smooth out facial wrinkles and lines, offering people a more refreshed and youthful appearance without the need for surgery. Dysport® does not, however, treat ‘static’ lines and wrinkles that exist if the face is at rest. The treatment itself can be performed in our Folsom office without the need for pain medication or anesthesia. Following treatment, patients can return to their everyday activities.
You should expect amazing results with Dysport® that can last as long as three to six months. Dysport helps to smooth out deep creases along the forehead and in between the eyebrows as well as deep facial lines while it works to improve the overall appearance of crow’s feet and laugh lines. The revolutionary treatment also helps fill in and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles due to facial muscle contraction.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dysport®?
For some people, repetitive facial muscle contractions over the years can lead to deep creases and profound facial lines that can make someone’s face look permanently stressed, angry, or worried. These unique lines are referred to as ‘dynamic’ wrinkles since they are caused by ongoing muscle contractions. Dysport® relaxes the target muscles that cause dynamic facial wrinkles, which help to eliminate or smooth out pronounced lines near the eyes, mouth, and forehead. Dysport® is especially effective in addressing moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows as well as horizontal lines in the brow, stress lines that run vertical around the mouth, and laugh lines near the eyes.
Life after Dysport®
Patients can easily return to work and other normal activities once the treatment is finished. There’s no need to deal with the lingering effects of anesthesia or sedatives, which means patients can simply drive home after their appointment. Doctors advise patients to avoid lying down for at least for four hours after the treatment is performed. Also, the end results are visibly noticeable within three to eight days following treatment, but very noticeable after a few weeks.
