Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them if you don’t like them. Many people are in search of an effective, non-invasive solution to smooth out these age-related changes. Dysport® is a treatment that can give you a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery or extended downtime.
At Skinlogic, we specialize in research-based, medical-grade cosmetic treatments to address your unique skincare aims. Serving Severna Park, MD, we use rigorously tested skincare products and tools to help you achieve these personal aesthetic goals.
Dysport® is a prescription injectable that contains a neurotoxin called abobotulinumtoxinA. Unlike some alternatives, it’s designed to target specific muscles responsible for facial lines, allowing for more natural movement in untreated areas. It works by temporarily blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles, reducing muscle activity and softening the appearance of wrinkles. This makes it an option for those looking to diminish frown lines between the eyebrows without altering the rest of their facial expression.
One of the notable benefits of a Dysport® treatment is its durability. While individual results can vary based on factors like skin type and lifestyle, Dysport® generally lasts up to five months. This allows for longer intervals between maintenance treatments.
Both Dysport® and Botox® are neuromodulators, but they differ in their formulation and behavior. Dysport® tends to spread a bit more, allowing for a broader area of effect which may be useful for treating larger areas. The units are also different, meaning you can’t directly compare the dosage between the two. We offer both as they are both effective treatments that may be useful in different situations.
The amount of Dysport® needed for treatment varies from person to person and depends on the severity of the wrinkles as well as the area being treated. A consultation is the best way to determine the exact amount needed for your specific concerns.
Preparation is minimal. You should avoid alcohol and certain medications like aspirin to minimize the risk of bruising. As always, consult with us for specific guidelines tailored to your needs.
One of the advantages of Dysport® is that it’s minimally invasive, meaning most people can return to their normal activities immediately. However, strenuous physical activity should be avoided for at least 24 hours following treatment, and you may be advised to stay upright for four hours after the treatment.
Choosing Dysport® for your wrinkle-reducing treatment offers a range of benefits, from quick results to lasting effects.
