As you age, you will start to develop dynamic wrinkles in your forehead and in other areas. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that you get when you make normal facial expressions. When you make these expressions, the muscles underneath your skin move, and this movement can be seen through your skin. Over time as you get older, your skin gets thinner and loses some of its elasticity. After a while, the facial movements that you make become etched into your skin. This leads to the development of permanent lines and wrinkles. If these dynamic wrinkles are affecting the way that you appear and the way that other people perceive you, you can take comfort from knowing that there are options available. Dysport® is one of the more popular options currently available on the market for addressing dynamic wrinkles.
After a Dysport® treatment at our office, you will gradually start to see your forehead wrinkles and your other treated dynamic wrinkles disappear, or at least fade from few. The way that your face looks on the outside will match the way that you feel on the inside. You will still be able to make normal facial expressions, like smiling, frowning and squinting. However, the skin in the treated area will remain smooth instead of showing the lines and wrinkles that were there previously. This leads to an overall younger, more refreshed appearance.
You might be thinking yourself, but isn’t this what BOTOX® is for? The answer is yes. And a few years ago, BOTOX® was the only game in town. It was the only option for addressing dynamic wrinkles. Now, Dysport® is giving BOTOX® a run for its money. Dysport® is a prescription injection that can temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. It can address forehead wrinkles and it can address crow’s feet. The way that Dysport® works is by reducing muscle contraction. This, in turn, prevents your muscles from transmitting their movement through your skin and onto your face. In short, it works in a very similar way as BOTOX®, but there are some key differences, which we can discuss with you during your consultation at our office.
There are a lot of benefits that come from using Dysport®. One benefit is that Dysport® is FDA-approved. This means that it has been tested, it has been examined and it has been shown to truly work. Another benefit of Dysport® is that the injections only take minutes to complete. And the results of the treatment last for months. Dysport® is not a permanent treatment for dynamic wrinkles. However, the treatments can be safely repeated at our office as necessary for ongoing results.
