Hate Seeing Lots of Tiny Wrinkles?

Published on December 7, 2018

Are you experiencing ugly crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles? Do you want to find a remedy to treat your frown lines and make your skin appear healthy and youthful? Try out Dysport.

Dysport is an FDA-approved wrinkle-reduction injectable. It is recommended for use in individuals below the age of 65 to treat wrinkles, making skin look smoother.

Dysport is very similar to Botox injections and contains botulinum toxin type A, which paralyzes the muscles that contract to cause wrinkles in the brow and forehead area. It blocks the neural pathway from the nerve to the muscle, improving upon fine and moderate lines in the face.

How Do Facial Wrinkles Form?

Whenever we move our facial muscles for actions and expressions, the skin on our face contracts and expands accordingly. Dynamic lines form in our face during the time from contraction until release. These creases lines deepen with time and repetition, changing from dynamic wrinkles to static wrinkles.

How Dysport Works

Dysport blocks nerve activity when injected and prevents your overactive muscles from moving too much. Allowing these contracted muscles to relax means that the overlying skin can return to a smooth and flat state.

Good Candidates for Dysport

The ideal Dysport candidate will have mild to moderate wrinkles on their forehead, between their eyebrows, or at the sides of their eyes. It can also be used to treat various other facial lines. Patients with severe wrinkles may be better served with a dermal filler or surgical procedure.

Patients who are allergic to any of the ingredients of Dysport should steer clear of these injectables. The same goes for individuals who experience adverse reactions with cow’s milk protein and botulinum toxin products.

If you have a skin infection on the site you plan to get your Dysport injection in, it’s best to avoid Dysport treatment and discuss alternative treatment options with Dr. Feng.

The Injection Procedure

The areas to be treated using Dysport are first cleaned with an alcohol wipe to prevent infection. The plastic surgeon may choose to numb the areas with a topical anesthetic or forego it depending on the patient’s needs; most surgeons skip using a numbing cream before injecting Dysport into the patient’s skin.

Typically, five sites encompassing the upper and central area of the eyebrows receive an injection of Dysport. The session lasts only about 10 to 20 minutes, and you can resume your daily activities immediately afterward.

What Are the Results Like?

The full results of a Dysport treatment will be visible within around two to three days and will last for three to four months. In some cases, it can be slightly longer-lasting than a Botox treatment. Common side-effects may include temporary swelling and bruising at the injection sites.
