Dysport® Cosmetic Treatment
What is Dysport®
Dysport® (pronounced DIS-port) is a new form of botulinum toxin A, similar to Botox, but slightly different in several ways. It is used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines on women and men under the age of 65 without changing the look of your whole face. It’s a FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer! The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. From frown lines to crow’s feet, it can lift your spirits and improve your wrinkles at the same time. With a few tiny injections, Dysport® will take effect over a period of days to banish frown lines and many other telltale signs of aging.
Why do wrinkles form
Frown lines and wrinkles are caused by a number of factors. Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the brow muscles, forms lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. When you frown or smile or laugh, those facial muscles tighten over and over. These repetitive facial movements such as frowns and squints cause the lines and creases that stick around and can really sap your self-confidence. These lines that appear on your face are the result of muscle movement pulling beneath your skin. As your skin softens, this pulling shows in fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead and at the edges of the eyes.
You work out, eat right, and take care of your skin. Of course, cosmetic creams and lotions will always have their place in your regimen—but for moderate to severe frown lines, you may want to discuss a prescription treatment like Dysport® with the experts at Lone Tree Facial.
How Dysport® can help
After the treatment of Dysport® has taken effect, the epidermal layer of the skin (top layer) remains smooth and unwrinkled. At the same time, the untreated facial muscles are still able to contract and relax in a regular manner. Therefore, normal facial expression is unaffected while the Dysport® has eliminated the deep dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused from movement) by relaxing the muscles that cause the wrinkle. When Dysport™ is injected, the nerves that control facial expression are inactivated, which allows the muscles to relax for up to 4 months.
The Lone Tree Facial difference
These days, you can get your non-surgical cosmetic treatments from the dentist, the gynecologist, or even when you go in for a check up at your family practitioner. But just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the beauty of Dysport® is in the eye (and hands) of the syringe holder. Just because a physician is offering Dysport®, doesn’t mean they’re an expert injector. Training and experience matters, it can make the difference between looking natural, rested and beautiful, and having results that are less than flattering. At Lone Tree Facial, our highly skilled physicians and staff have performed thousands of cosmetic injections and we are one of the leading providers in Denver.
