How does Dysport address forehead lines and creases?
The appearance of forehead creases is often caused by making repeated facial expressions over time (such as raising your eyebrows).
Dysport is a type of injectable treatment designed to address these forehead lines and creases, as well as other facial wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions. The active ingredient in Dysport is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A (similar to BOTOX®), which works by blocking the signals between the nerves and the muscles that cause these forehead lines.
When Dysport is injected into the muscles in the forehead, it temporarily relaxes them and prevents them from contracting and forming wrinkles. This allows the skin to smooth out, and the wrinkles gradually fade over time.
What makes Dysport a good solution for getting rid of forehead lines?
Dysport is a targeted treatment, meaning it only affects the specific muscles responsible for creating the wrinkles, leaving the surrounding areas untouched.
Dysport injections are a nonsurgical and minimally invasive solution that can provide quick and long-lasting results with little to no downtime. In fact, the procedure can be performed in as little as 10 – 20 minutes.
The results of the treatment are visible within 1 – 3 days and can last around 3 – 4 months. During this time, you'll start to see softer, smoother, more youthful skin as lines fade away.
While some patients may see slight redness and swelling near the injection sites in the immediate hours and days following treatment, sleeping propped up for a night and applying a cold compress to any areas of irritation can minimize those reactions.
Dysport treatments are customizable, so it's up to you to decide when to repeat the procedure to maintain your results.
How can I maintain my Dysport results for as long as possible?
If you love your results, you'll want to take good care of your skin to maintain them as long as possible between treatments. The longevity of Dysport results can vary depending on the individual, but there are a few things that patients can do to help prolong the effects.
- Follow post-treatment instructions carefully. These typically include avoiding certain activities (such as saunas) and positions (such as stomach sleeping) for a short period after the treatment to help ensure that the Dysport settles properly.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure. Exposure to the sun's UV rays can break down collagen and elastin in the skin, leading to premature aging and the development of wrinkles. It is important to use sunscreen and avoid excessive sun exposure, especially during the first few days after the treatment.
- Focus on nutrition and hydration. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help improve your skin's overall health and appearance. The keys are eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, exercising regularly, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
