“Dynamic wrinkles” are caused by repeated muscular contractions such as frowning, squinting and brow furrowing. For example, when we frown, we gather the tissue between our eyebrows into a fold. This can cause a chronic furrow which produces a frustrated, discouraged or angry facial expression. These frown lines can be eliminated without surgery and without scars, by a simple treatment with Dysport® Injections.
• Eliminate wrinkles and frown lines
• Quick and painless treatment
• A more youthful appearance
• No downtime
Dysport® is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines, which is an alternative to Botox® Cosmetic injections. During treatment, very low doses of Dysport® are injected directed into the muscles that cause stubborn lines. Dysport® works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form. As the muscle weakens, the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed look.
Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with our medical director with expertise in aesthetic injections, as well as over 20 years experience in creating beautiful aesthetic outcomes for patients of all ages. Our medical director will recommend a custom treatment program based on each client’s medical history and needs. As the dosage of Dysport varies from client to client, a price quote will be provided at the time of consultation.
The treatment will take roughly 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Your aesthetic professional may choose to numb the area with a cold pack prior to performing the injection to minimize any discomfort.
After treatment you may experience some mild redness which usually lasts for approximately an hour. Rarely, patients experience some minor bruising and swelling which typically resolves within a short period of time. Most patients return to regular activity immediately. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after injection and the treated areas should not be rubbed for 24 hours after treatment. You should contract your frowning muscles frequently for the first hour after treatment to work the product in.
Within days, you will see an improvement that can last up to 4 months. The muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles is reduced, so you are still able to frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles and creases. The results of Dyport® can take up to 10 days to take effect. Lines and wrinkles will continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 4 months.
Dysport® should not be administered to pregnant women, nursing mothers or individuals suffering with myasthenia gravis or muscle diseases.
