Once we hit a certain age, our skin starts producing less and less collagen. This makes it more susceptible to wrinkles and other damage. Many people are shocked at just how early wrinkles actually show up. Rather than just accept wrinkles as inevitable, more and more people are choosing Dysport® injections. Here at Atomic Dermatology, we are proud to offer this time-honored treatment and encourage you to learn more about it.
What are Dysport® Injections?
Dysport® is an injectable treatment, a purified protein serum used to temporarily relax specific facial muscles, allowing for the face to relax and wrinkles to fade. Dysport® is particularly effective at treating vertical forehead lines that show up between the eyebrows, also known as frown lines or glabellar lines. These lines, also known as dynamic wrinkles, appear as the result of repetitive facial movements. By temporarily stopping the movement, the wrinkles will fade. As a result, you look younger and more refreshed.
What to Expect with Dysport® Injections
The first step is to come in for a consultation where we can determine if this is the proper treatment for you and create a customized plan. Dysport® is intended for people with moderate to severe glabellar lines. Treatments themselves are very quick. Injections are made around the eyebrows and forehead in order to give you your optimal results.
Other than taking it easy for the first two hours after your appointment, there is no downtime with Dysport®. Your results will appear within the next week as the muscle movements stop. These results will last for months. After that point, you will need a follow-up treatment if you do not want muscle movement to resume and the wrinkles to reappear.
Why Choose Dysport® Injections?
There are several options out there when it comes to rejuvenating the face. Many people prefer Dysport® overall these other treatments because:
- It requires fewer injections than BOTOX®
- Untreated muscles still work normally so your face won’t look rigid
- It is non-surgical and results in no downtime
- Dysport® injections are so quick and easy that you can have them done on your lunch break
- This safe and well-researched option is FDA-approved
