Are you tired of the fine lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows? Those frown lines, also known as glabellar lines, result from repeatedly contracting your facial muscles. They can occur at any age, making your face look older. If you are looking for a non-surgical way to treat frown lines and other wrinkles, Dysport may be for you.
Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription injection approved to treat patients 65 years old and younger. It belongs to a class of treatments known as neuromodulators, which relax and limit the movement of muscles on and around the injection site.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport injections temporarily reduce specific muscle activity to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. They block nerve signals and prevent muscle contractions that cause frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. As the muscles relax, the skin above them smooths, reducing the presence of wrinkles. Doctors inject this treatment into five points between and above the eyebrows in the shape of a V.
Benefits of Dysport
Along with reducing wrinkles on the face, Dysport has many additional benefits as well.
Not only does it smooth out existing wrinkles, but Dysport can help prevent future wrinkles from occurring as well. By reducing muscle activity, these lines no longer have the opportunity to form. The treatment preserves your skin’s integrity and continues as you receive more injections.
The effects of Dysport are fast-acting. You can be in and out of your treatment session in less than 30 minutes, and results typically appear as soon as two days after treatment.
Dysport is a safe, non-surgical option for patients who want results without the downtime of plastic surgery. Since the procedure is non-surgical, there is little to no recovery time afterward. These injections are also virtually painless and typically do not require a local anesthetic.
Dysport is a versatile treatment that is highly effective in treating lines caused by repetitive movements, such as laughing, frowning, and wrinkling the brow. While it is most commonly used to treat frown lines, it can also remedy wrinkles in the forehead and nose, crow’s feet, lip lines, and sagging neck skin. It can also fill empty spaces around the muscles to create a smoother appearance overall.
Many patients enjoy their results for four to six months. After about a year of consistent treatments, you can typically start spacing sessions further apart because less Dysport is needed to relax your muscles.
Combining Treatments With Dysport
You can combine Dysport with other wrinkle relaxers like dermal fillers to address multiple facial concerns at once. Fillers address sunken cheeks, hollow areas under the eyes, lines around the mouth, and lip enhancement. These two cosmetic treatments complement each other to help give your face a more youthful look.
