Rid Yourself of Unsightly Glabellar Lines With Dysport Treatment

Over the years, the repeated facial movements of squinting, frowning, and furrowing your brow can gradually lead to the development of little creases between your eyebrows. These creases are called glabellar lines or “frown lines,” and they can have a major impact on your facial appearance. For example, they can make you look like you’re always scowling and detract from the natural beauty of your facial appearance. You may also have lines on your forehead or on your crows feet.  If you’re looking for a simple and effective way to eliminate your frown lines, you may want to try Dysport treatment at Aesthetic Specialists Med Spa.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of the glabellar lines that form between the eyebrows. It can also be used on the forehead, crows feet, on the lower face, and platysmal bands.  Dysport is a popular alternative to BOTOX and is made using the same active ingredient: botulinum toxin type A. When this neurotoxin is introduced to the facial muscles, it prevents the nerves and muscles from communicating. This temporarily relaxes the muscles and stops them from contracting, which causes the corresponding skin to become smoother and firmer, softening the appearance of frown lines in the process. In addition to smoothing glabellar lines, Dysport injections can help to eliminate dynamic forehead wrinkles.

Benefits of Dysport

Dysport is an effective neuromodulator that offers many notable benefits, including:

  • Reduced glabellar lines
  • Reduced dynamic forehead wrinkles
  • Temporary prevention of new frown lines
  • Smoother, more youthful-looking facial skin
  • A more refreshed and energetic facial appearance
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Little to no recovery time required

Who Is a Candidate for Dysport Treatment?

If you’re an adult experiencing significant frown lines, forehead lines, or crowsfeet lines, you could be a good candidate for Dysport. Most candidates for the treatment are looking to smooth their forehead wrinkles and the skin between their eyebrows. To be an ideal candidate, you’ll also need to be free of allergies to botulinum toxin, not be currently pregnant or nursing, and have no active skin infections.

What Is the Dysport Procedure Like?

For your Dysport treatment at our medical spa, the procedure will be very quick and easy. Before the procedure, your treatment provider will apply a topical anesthetic to the area to minimize your discomfort. Then, using a fine needle, they will carefully inject Dysport into the facial muscles.

Recovery and Aftercare

One additional benefit of Dysport treatment is the fact that it rarely requires any recovery downtime. Although you can immediately return to your normal routine, you will need to take certain measures to ensure that you heal properly and achieve quality results.

For example, you should wait 24 to 48 hours before you engage in strenuous exercise. You should also periodically apply a cold pack to the treatment area for the first 24 hours after the procedure.
