Smooth Away The Wrinkles'No One Will Know...But Everyone Will Notice'
As we age the first place we notice signs of aging is in the face. Wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes cause a great deal of concern. For some time there has been the option of a surgical procedure to eliminate this problem, but in many cases it is not necessary to resort to something that aggressive. Dysport® is an option for the reduction of wrinkles in the forehead, crows feet and the area between the eyebrows (glabella region).
At Revitalize MD, we offer Dysport® as a part of our practice. Dysport® is approved by the FDA for the injection as a temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows and forehead), forehead, and around the eyes. Dysport® injections have shown to keep wrinkles temporarily relaxed up to six months.
Dysport® is injected similar to other neurotoxins. Dysport® may act quicker and works within several days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours after receiving Dysport® treatment. The quick response in which Dysport® works allows many patients to make the deciding factor to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting.
What is Dysport® and how does it work?
Dysport® is made from the botulinum toxin type A (same as Botox) that, when injected into a muscle, temporarily paralyzes that muscle. Dysport® paralyzes the muscle by blocking the nerves that signal the muscle to contract. Since the muscles don’t receive the message, they don’t contract and the wrinkles formed on the surface are reduced or eliminated, depending on their depth and the elasticity of your skin. Follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain results. There is evidence that as the muscles are injected with Dysport® over time, they become conditioned to relax and tend not to contract as forcefully.
Are there any side effects with a Dysport® treatment?
The potential side effects of Dysport® may include local numbness, swelling, bruising or a burning sensation during injection.
