A Few Simple Injections Make Fine Age Lines Vanish
Age is more than just a number when it starts to show on your skin. After the signs of aging start to form, you might end up looking much older than your actual age. If you’re looking for a way to get rid of those fine age lines and rejuvenate your appearance, you can achieve smoother and naturally younger-looking skin with Dysport.
Kiss Fine Lines Goodbye with Dysport
Dysport is an injectable similar to Botox in terms of composition. Both facial injectables are composed of botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum is a substance that arrests muscular movement.
When a small and precise dose of Dysport is injected into the skin, it creates localized temporary muscle paralysis, allowing overworked facial muscles to relax. This is turn causes the overlying skin to relax, letting the wrinkles fade away.
Dysport is FDA-approved for use on facial wrinkles. It is effective in treating frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other fine age lines.
Is Dysport Right for Me?
Dysport is ideal for anyone dealing with unwanted fine facial wrinkles.
Eligibility for Dysport treatment is determined through an initial consultation with Dr. Richardson or Dr. Cain. Dysport is not suitable for pregnant women and individuals who are suffering from sclerosis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, or myasthenia gravis. It is not recommended for those who may have an allergic reaction to botulinum. Those with an active infection in the site of treatment should avoid Dysport.
Weak muscles underlying the site of the injection compromise the outcome of Dysport. Other conditions that may affect the results of Dysport include oily or thick skin and radical facial asymmetries.
Preparing For Dysport
For a week leading up to the injection, it is highly recommended that the patient stays clear of blood thinners and over-the-counter medications such as Aspirin.
It is best to stay away from the consumption of alcohol before and after the treatment, as this can aggravate bruising in the treatment sites.
What to Expect with Dysport
After a preliminary appointment with Dr. Richardson or Dr. Cain, the number of units of Dysport to be injected is determined. It is best to arrive at the clinic without any makeup on if possible.
The Dysport treatment process is quite simple and only takes a few minutes to perform. During this, precise injections are made into the areas where wrinkles are present. No local or general anesthesia will be needed.
Immediately after the injections, the treated area may feel slightly sore and tender. Slight swelling and redness are expected during this time. Patients are advised to avoid touching or rubbing their face. Makeup can be applied after the treatment.
