We’ve all been there: As we age, the presence of dreaded frown lines becomes more and more prominent. Throughout our lives, certain facial expressions—like smiling, frowning and squinting—cause our facial muscles to contract, creasing our skin. Later in life, our skin starts to lose its elasticity, causing permanent facial creases that make us look angry, worried or sad. Needless to say, that’s not ideal, especially during the festive fun of the holiday season. This year, give yourself the gift of Dysport, an injectable treatment that can dramatically improve frown lines. With relatively no recovery time, Dysport treatments will have you looking merry and bright in time for the holiday party season.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable therapy that was originally formulated for the treatment of motor disorders. Dysport is made of a protein that is extracted from Clostridium botulinum, otherwise known as botulism. That might sound intimidating, but Dysport is completely safe and trusted by medical and esthetic professionals in more than 60 countries.
How Does Dysport Work?
Dysport temporarily immobilizes the muscles you use to frown, which smoothes out those deeply embedded frown lines and wrinkles in Springfield Missouri. You won’t experience an immediate muscle freezing sensation. Instead, your muscles will relax gradually over the course of several days. In fact, you probably won’t even notice the muscles relaxing. Instead, you’ll just become aware that you can’t contract your frown muscles. No need to worry about unnatural expressions in holiday photos, though—you’ll still be able to blink normally and raise your eyebrows.
Am I A Good Candidate for Dysport?
Dysport can work wonders on deeply etched frown lines, helping to improve your confidence at work, at home and in relationships. Dysport works for men and women—ultimately, if you’re dissatisfied with your frown lines, you’re a great candidate for the treatment. The only individuals who should not have Dysport treatments are pregnant or breastfeeding mothers and individuals who have been diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease.
What Can I Expect During a Dysport Treatment?
During a Dysport treatment, you’ll receive between three and five small, nearly painless injections. The serum is injected directly into the facial muscles which lie beneath your frown lines, working to temporarily immobilize them over the course of a day or two. Dysport treatments are fast, usually only taking around 10 to 20 minutes. No local anesthetic is usually required.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments?
You’ll notice the effects of Dysport after just one treatment. However, depending on the severity of your facial lines, you may need additional treatments. The good news is that many patients find that they “unlearn” the habit of frowning or squinting after Dysport treatments, which makes the treatments even more effective.
Will I Experience Side Effects After a Dysport Treatment?
The side effects associated with Dysport are minimal, and the downtime is nearly nonexistent. You’ll want to complete facial exercises like squinting and smiling immediately after your injection to reduce the chance of bruising or ptosis, a term for droopy eyelids that can sometimes occur. You might experience slight swelling or a headache. However, you should notice the benefits of treatment just a day or two after you leave our clinic. That’s great news during the busy holiday season.
