You know you’re getting older when the wrinkles from smiling and frowning stick around even when your face is at rest. Frown lines are the most visible of these expression lines, also known as glabellar lines. These are little lines between your eyebrows. They become more visible when you frown or scrunch your eyebrows together. The best way to bring back your youth and erase these lines from your face is by using Dysport, the injectable wrinkle-reducer.
Dysport® is offered at our practice in the Los Angeles, CA area. To learn more about whether or not you quality, contact our team at the Kagan Institute. We would be happy to schedule you for a consultation!
How Does Dysport Work?
This treatment is a very simple solution to a simple problem. Dynamic wrinkles form as we make expressions, and as we get older the collagen in our skin breaks down. This breakdown causes the wrinkles to stick around much longer than we’d like them to. You may look frustrated or angry even when your face is relaxed, all due to those glabellar lines.
Dysport is a prescription medication that is injected into specific muscles in between your eyebrows. These muscles are then allowed to relax, something they aren’t used to doing. When they relax the lines will slowly fade, and you’ll be left looking younger with smooth skin.
Our professionals have been trained in the proper way to inject Dysport so that you don’t experience “frozen face” or suffer any unwanted side effects. There may be slight bruising and swelling at the injection sites after you leave our office, but those side effects should fade quickly.
- Excellent filler for crows feet
- Simple, immediate and longer lasting results that take a day or two to show and last up to four to six months
- Slightly softer more, natural look
Am I a Good Candidate?
Typically, most generally healthy adults could be a good candidate for wrinkle reduction with Dysport. The results from the injections are temporary, which is a bonus for many patients who aren’t ready for a permanent commitment, such as a facelift or brow lift.
Both men and women qualify for this treatment. Wrinkles don’t discriminate so neither does our anti-wrinkle treatment. This treatment is perfect for eliminating frustrating wrinkles while helping you avoid the over-done look that many of our patients fear.
However, it is important to keep in mind this injectable treatment can only be used to address dynamic concerns. It cannot be used to address signs of aging not caused by facial movements.
