Dynamic wrinkles are the result of repetitive muscle movements from facial expressions. These fine lines and deep creases may form between the eyebrows (Frown Lines), at the corners of the eyes (Crow’s Feet), and along the forehead. While there is nothing that can be done to reverse these early signs of aging, Skin by Lovely has a solution: Dysport.
Dysport at Skin by Lovely
Dysport is a minimally invasive treatment, used to temporarily eliminate dynamic wrinkles. Also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, or obobotulinumtoxin, Dysport is injected with a small needle, blocking nerve impulses to the targeted muscle. As the area is unable to contract, the associated facial lines will ease and smooth out. The muscles surrounding the treatment area will continue to function as normal, so facial expressions are not affected. Dysport can efficiently improve the appearance of wrinkles on the upper face, as well as soften lines around the mouth and contour to the features. When used alone, Dysport can significantly improve the appearance. For optimal facial rejuvenation, Dysport can be paired with complimentary treatments, such as a dermal filler (Juvederm and Restylane) or a detoxifying facial.
The Ideal Dysport Candidate
Anyone that is unhappy with lines and wrinkles along the forehead or around the eyes, due to the aging process, can benefit from Dysport. Patients should be in overall good health, as well as understand the benefits and limitations of Dysport. Candidates with an allergy to Botox should not continue on with Dysport injections.
The Dysport Consultation
Skin by Lovely requires patients to have a one-on-one consultation prior to beginning any aesthetic treatment. This is a time for a brief examination of the skin, review of current medications, and a discussion of aesthetic goals. The Dysport treatment process will be explained in detail, and if the procedure can meet the desired goals, a personalized treatment plan will be created.
The Dysport Procedure
As soon as the initial consultation is complete, patients are ready to begin their Dysport injections. The practitioner will first determine the targeted treatment areas. She will then apply the Dysport using a very small needle. The treatment will take less than half an hour in the Skin by Lovely office. While Dysport injections are not considered painful, patients do report feeling a slight pinch during each injection. To improve the comfort level, patients may request a topical or local anesthetic to be used prior to treatment.
Results from Dysport
The benefits of Dysport will take several days to appear. Full wrinkle reducing results can be seen in 10 to 14 days. The tissue will continue to look smooth and relaxed for up to three months. When the results begin to fade, a repeat Dysport treatment will be needed to maintain a youthful appearance.
Potential Complications from Dysport
Dysport is considered a safe and effective treatment for the temporary improvement of dynamic wrinkles. Side effects from Dysport include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. While more serious complications are extremely rare, they can include an allergic reaction, drooping eyelids, and nerve damage. The best way for patients to avoid a negative reaction after receiving Dysport is to trust an experienced aesthetic practice, such as Skin by Lovely.
