Wrinkles are a hallmark sign of aging that most people want to avoid. Fine lines and wrinkles come from facial expressions that form creases on your face. Dysport is part of the family of cosmetic injectables that relax wrinkles. If you want to prevent wrinkles from forming and treat your existing wrinkles, Dysport is the treatment for you.
How Dysport Works
Dysport is a paralytic agent that blocks signals from your brain when you move your face muscles. The paralysis is temporary and wears off as the injections get metabolized by your body. Without lots of movement, these muscles stay relaxed and don’t contribute to wrinkle formation.
If you notice your jaw clicks or pops when you move your mouth, you may have TMJ. This condition causes irritation and tension in your jaw muscles. It can happen as a result of stress, teeth grinding, excessive gum chewing, and other lifestyle factors.
Dysport can relieve the symptoms of TMJ by relaxing your jaw muscles. The tension will fade away, and your jaw will be able to move without inflammation and pain.
The paralyzing effect of this neurotoxin injection is also helpful for some other conditions. Your face muscles can remain tense over time, causing problems like migraines and tension headaches. Dysport relaxes the muscles to give you relief from pain and tension.
Dysport vs. Botox
You may have heard of Botox before, one of the cosmetic injectables that stop wrinkles from forming. Both wrinkle treatments contain abobotulinumtoxinA, a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes your facial muscles. The paralytic effect stops your expressions from creasing and wrinkling your face.
Dysport has some advantages over Botox as a wrinkle treatment. Cosmetic injectables are measured in units, and three Dysport units are equal to one Botox unit. Dysport is a thinner, milder formula that is just as effective at preventing wrinkles.
One of the unique advantages of Dysport is the slimming effect it can have on your jawline’s appearance. Patients who get this treatment notice a thinner facial appearance due to the relaxed muscles near their jaws. This is especially helpful for patients who clench their jaws and grind their teeth.
Dysport injections are not painful compared to Botox injections. The thin formula allows us to use a much thinner needle and patients report that the treatment is painless. It is also one of the safest cosmetic injectables on the market.
Common Areas with Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Dysport treats some of the most common facial areas where wrinkles and fine lines form. When you smile, frown, or raise your eyebrows, your skin starts to form creases. This wrinkle treatment targets the areas affected by your facial expressions to keep them smooth and youthful.
The most common areas for Dysport injections are:
- Outer eye area
- Mouth area
- Underarms for excessive sweating
You will still be able to form facial expressions without a “frozen” or stiff look. However, some of the tiny muscles will stop responding to signals from your brain. This will keep your facial muscles relaxed and stop wrinkles from forming and deepening.
After your Dysport injections, it can take up to two weeks to see full wrinkle-smoothing results. Your skin will look smoother and younger with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. When you make facial expressions, you won’t see as many creases and lines on your face.
Cosmetic injectables for wrinkle treatment are temporary, and the results will fade over time. Dysport results should last around three months until you may need another treatment.
Your body slowly metabolizes the injections over the three-month period between treatments. You may notice fine lines starting to come back and deepen into wrinkles. This treatment is convenient and pain-free, so it is easy to get repeat injections.
Good Candidates for Wrinkle Treatment
This treatment targets existing wrinkles and aims to prevent more lines from forming. If you are starting to notice the first signs of aging on your face, you are a good candidate for cosmetic injectables. The best way to fight against wrinkles is to prevent them. However, Dysport also smooths existing wrinkles with its muscle-paralyzing effects.
Men and women both benefit from this wrinkle treatment. Whether you have just entered your 30s or are in middle age, this treatment reduces the visible signs of aging on your face. As long as you understand the treatment process, you make a good candidate for Dysport.
Patients should be in good general health before getting cosmetic injections. We rarely have to turn patients away from wrinkle treatments. If you are fighting an active infection or have a contagious skin condition, you will have to wait until it clears up for your treatment. Otherwise, we welcome all patients who want to get ahead of the facial aging process.
