If you’re tired of looking at your frown lines, we completely understand. Frown lines can start to define your features and affect your confidence. Whether your frown lines are lighter or more severe, we have a solution. We offer Dysport, a cosmetic injectable specifically designed to smooth frown lines.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator similar to Botox. Its primary purpose is to relax the muscles responsible for dynamic movements, specifically frowning. Expressions are normal; they are part of what makes us human. However, the skin’s structure begins to weaken, and it can no longer withstand all of the pulling and tugging that occurs as you constantly express throughout the day.
What Causes Frown Lines?
Lines and wrinkles begin to form in the skin due to collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid loss. If you’ve noticed that your topical products aren’t making a difference in the appearance of your frown lines, you may need something stronger, something like Dysport, to address the root cause of the frown lines.
This injectable will relax the muscles responsible for frowning and, in doing so, will give your skin the chance to rest, which will result in and a significant improvement in the appearance of your frown lines. For some patients, they will disappear altogether.
What Does It Treat?
Dysport was designed to target front lines, but it also has some other off-label uses, including addressing other dynamic wrinkles that form on the upper half of the face due to repetitive expressive movements. Your injector will determine whether this injectable can address your specific concern. If you simply want to treat your frown lines, you may benefit from a treatment plan that includes the use of this particular injectable.
Additionally, we can also use Dysport to treat a specific medical condition called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects specific individuals and refers to an over-production of underarm sweat. If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, Dysport injections may be the perfect solution that can help improve your confidence and help temporarily resolve this embarrassing condition.
How Does It Work?
The injection process is quick and virtually painless. To begin, your injector will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin to ensure that you stay comfortable throughout the entire treatment.
Then, a quick series of injections will be made in five different points around the eyebrow area to address the specific muscles that enable frowning, which leads to the formation of frown lines over time. By relaxing this muscle, we can smooth and even erase frown lines so that you can enjoy smooth, younger-looking skin and a more rested-looking appearance.
How Many Units Will I Need?
As a general rule of thumb, the fewer units used during the treatment process, the faster your results will wear off. Without seeing the severity of your lines and wrinkles in person, it’s impossible to determine how many units you will need to achieve your desired look. For that reason, we require that patients schedule an initial consultation before undergoing this treatment.
A consultation will enable your injector to evaluate your area of concern in person and determine the best plan of action to help you achieve beautiful results. Once we evaluate your skin in person and design your treatment plan, we can give you a better idea of how many units you will need so that you know what your treatment plan will look like before ever arriving at your appointment.
When Will I See Results?
One of the benefits of this anti-aging injectable is that it is fast-acting. Patients typically notice results within two to three days of their injection appointment. The results will continue to improve in the week following your treatment as the ingredients effectively relax the muscles responsible for your dynamic wrinkles. While you may not walk out with an initial change in your problem area, you will see results; it may just take a few days.
How Long Will My Results Last?
This injectable delivers results that last anywhere from three to six months. The rate at which your body metabolizes the ingredients determines how long your results will last. On average, patients enjoy results for approximately three to four months.
Once you undergo an initial round of injections, you’ll be able to determine how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients. When you notice a change in your results, all you have to do is schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain your results long-term.
Am I a Candidate?
If you want to smooth dynamic wrinkles, particularly the frown lines that form between your eyebrows, you may be the perfect candidate for this injectable. One of the benefits of Dysport is that it’s fast-acting and delivers natural-looking results.
The ingredients in the injectable don’t spread to other areas of the face but stay right where they are injected. That means that you’ll maintain your ability to express, and this treatment will not affect the way the rest of your face appears.
You don’t have to rely on expensive topical solutions to treat your lines and wrinkles, especially if they’re not delivering the kind of results you’ve been hoping for. Instead, you can add an effective cosmetic injectable to your anti-aging skincare routine and trust that you will see results; they are guaranteed. Once you add this injectable to your skincare routine, you’ll never want to go back to living life without it.
