One of the most disheartening things is waking up and looking at yourself in the mirror and realizing that you have more wrinkles on your face today than you did the day before. It can be semi-traumatic to watch your appearance change, especially if you see yourself developing deep wrinkles on your forehead, deep wrinkles or crow’s feet on the side of your eyes, and deep smile lines. A couple of years ago, there were very few options available in Fall River when it came to treating these types of wrinkles. Now, you can treat these wrinkles very effectively using Dysport®.
Dysport® is a treatment that is delivered via injection. Its purpose is to smooth out the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. There are a lot of similarities between Dysport® and it’s more popular rival, BOTOX®. Dysport® was approved for use by the FDA in 2009. However, ir was widely used around the globe for many years prior to receiving FDA-approval.
Similar to BOTOX®, Dysport® was first used as a way to help individuals who had neuromuscular diseases. With time, it became apparent that the product not only assisted these individuals who had neuromuscular disorders, but it also minimized the appearance of wrinkles on their face.
What’s nice about this treatment is that it leaves you with results that look natural. It allows you to remove wrinkles from a particular area without changing the way you look or changing the movement of the rest of your face. By this we mean that even after getting the injections, you are able to express yourself clearly without any restrictions in facial expressions.
So, how does Dysport® work? Well, when you make facial expressions, different facial muscles move. For example, you may smile at something or you may frown at something and automatically facial muscles move in response. When your facial muscles move like this, they also cause your skin to contract. This folding of the skin eventually leads to skin creases. The skin creases caused by the dynamic movement of your face are referred to as dynamic wrinkles.
With time, your muscles become locked into contracted positions. As a result, those creases in your skin become permanent. When Dysport® is directly injected into the muscles that are causing your wrinkles, these muscles relax. With time, this allows the skin to relax and to smooth out again.
Dysport® can help diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles for multiple months at a time. You simply need to have follow-up treatments at our office in Fall River every so often to maintain the positive results.
