We are fed from youth the idea that a stable and modest person is going to be happy with the way that they look even as they grow older. There is this misconception that caring about the way you look after a certain age is just a sign of vanity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you wanting your appearance to reflect the way that you feel on the outside. Dysport® treatments at our office in El Dorado Hills, CA can help you do just that.
What are some of the things on the outside that can make you look older than you feel? Wrinkles. Most of us start to develop wrinkles in our thirties. These wrinkles form around our eyes, around our mouth, and around our nose. We refer to these wrinkles as dynamic wrinkles. Here’s why. Dynamic wrinkles appear when you make a facial expression. For example, when you smile, you get those wrinkles around the sides of your eyes. When you frown, you get wrinkles in your forehead. All of these are dynamic wrinkles. When you are in your younger years and you make a facial expression, your skin will wrinkle up in reaction to your muscle movement, but once you change your facial expression back to being expressionless, the wrinkles disappear.
But now that you are getting a little bit older, you realize that those wrinkles that used to disappear stick around regardless of the facial expression you’re making. You have lines that are etched around your eyes, in your forehead, or around your mouth. This is what Dysport® was made to address.
Dysport® is a neural modulator. This means that it interferes with the way that your nerves and the muscles they control interact. Dysport® is an injectable treatment. So when you visit our clinic in El Dorado Hills, CA, you will receive injections in the muscles around the area you want to treat. The injection, in turn, will inhibit the nerves in that area from transmitting signals to your muscles. When you make facial expressions, your muscles are not going to contract. The skin around your muscles is not going to wrinkle up. And since your skin is not moving, the wrinkles that have been etched in your skin vanish. It’s really that simple!
