What is Dysport®?
Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive muscle movements from facial expressions. These fine lines and deep creases may form between the eyebrows (Frown Lines), at the corners of the eyes (Crow’s Feet), and along the forehead. While there is nothing that can be done to reverse these early signs of aging, MedSpa California has a solution: Dysport.
Dysport is a minimally invasive treatment, used to temporarily eliminate dynamic wrinkles. Also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, or Abobotulinumtoxin, Dysport is injected with a small needle, blocking nerve impulses to the targeted muscle. As the area is unable to contract, the associated facial lines will ease and smooth out. The muscles surrounding the treatment area will continue to function as normal, so facial expressions are not affected. Dysport can efficiently improve the appearance of wrinkles on the upper face, as well as soften lines around the mouth and contour to the features. When used alone, Dysport can significantly improve their appearance. For optimal facial rejuvenation, Dysport can be paired with complementary treatments, such as a dermal filler (Juvederm and Restylane) or a detoxifying facial.
The Ideal Dysport Candidate
Anyone that is unhappy with lines and wrinkles along the forehead or around the eyes, due to the aging process, can benefit from Dysport. Patients should be in overall good health, as well as understand the benefits and limitations of Dysport. Candidates with an allergy to Botox should not continue on with Dysport injections.
The Dysport Consultation
MedSpa California requires patients to have a one-on-one consultation prior to beginning any aesthetic treatment. This is a time for a brief examination of the skin, review of current medications, and a discussion of aesthetic goals. The Dysport treatment process will be explained in detail, and if the procedure can meet the desired goals, a personalized treatment plan will be created.
Results from Dysport
The benefits of Dysport will take several days to appear. Full wrinkle reducing results can be seen in 10 to 14 days. The tissue will continue to look smooth and relaxed for up to three months. When the results begin to fade, a repeat Dysport treatment will be needed to maintain a youthful appearance.
