Wrinkles are caused gradually over time in your skin for many reasons. Your nerve signals are responsible for directing your facial muscles to contract, and the lasting impression of these contractions is one of the main reasons that wrinkles and lines are formed. You can improve the appearance of unwanted lines by reducing the nerve activity in problem areas of your skin. Treatments like Dysport® effectively reduce neuromuscular activity for treatment and long lasting prevention of wrinkles and fine lines.
HOW IT WORKS
The active ingredient in Dysport® is Botulinum toxin type A, which stimulates the production of an antibody that reduces nerve signals to your muscles. This results in a temporary decrease in the muscle activity that causes wrinkles. With just one injection into each of the five points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport® effectively blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately preventing temporary contraction of the muscles that cause lines.
The treatment usually takes about ten to twenty minutes. During the treatment, one of our trained skin rejuvenation specialists injects the appropriate amount of Dysport® into the specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles. No anesthesia is required for this painless procedure, but topical anesthetic or a cold pack are available to reduce any discomfort at your request.
The effects of Dysport® will be visible over a period of one to two weeks. As the active ingredients gradually restrict the muscles’ ability to contract, the muscles are left relaxed and the skin is smoother. Some patients may observe visible smoothing as early as three to four days after treatment. The effects of Dysport® last for about two to four months. Receiving another treatment of Dysport® will help keep those frown lines at bay and restore your visibly smooth skin. Allow 90 days between treatments of Dysport® to safely enjoy your restored complexion.
