Dysport

Dysport in Severna Park, MD | Skinlogic

You use the tiny muscles around your eyes and eyebrows to show emotions – from surprise and concern to annoyance and confusion.

After years of these repetitive facial expressions, wrinkles, furrows, and frown lines mar the formerly smooth, supple skin of the forehead and eye area. 

Fortunately, advanced aesthetic treatments now allow us to counter the signs of aging and restore the beautiful skin of your youth. At Skinlogic, we offer Dysport® injections specifically for the forehead and delicate eye area. Like Botox®, Dysport® is a neuromodulator that limits muscle movement in the injected area, allowing the skin to smooth for a refreshed, relaxed look.

The providers at Skinlogic perform Dysport® injections at Skinlogic in Severna Park, MD. Having completed rigorous training in the art of safe and efficient injections, their skills lend themselves to the natural, long-lasting results she creates with neuromodulators.

What Is Dysport, and How Does It Compare to Botox?

Dysport®, like Botox®, is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable comprised of botulinum toxin, which helps reduce the appearance of mild to severe dynamic wrinkles. In the past, Botox® was the leading choice for wrinkle reduction, but it’s not the only option anymore. Dysport® has gained popularity for its ability to correct frown lines along the forehead and around the eyes. 

Both forms of injectables are non-invasive treatments that temporarily reduce facial muscle movement. The botulinum toxin limits the facial muscles’ ability to contract, allowing wrinkles to smooth and soften. The difference between Botox® and Dysport® resides in their trace proteins and the areas in which they are most effective.

Dysport® is a medium-chained botulinum toxin that is good for treating strong muscle groups, such as frown lines and masseurs. It also tends to set in faster.  

How Does Dysport Work for Wrinkle Reduction in Annapolis?

Dysport® injections work by temporarily limiting the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. Your muscles will gradually relax after your appointment, but not so much that it freezes your face. You’ll still be able to laugh, smile, and show emotion as usual, but without the exaggeration that causes creases and wrinkles to worsen or permanently form in the skin. Our clients appreciate the natural-looking, long-lasting results we deliver with Dysport®.

What Concerns Can Dysport Injections in Glen Burnie Address?

At Skinlogic, we use Dysport® to correct a few specific signs of aging. You can also choose this neuromodulator as a preventive treatment to stop wrinkles from forming and keep you looking younger and longer.

Glabellar Lines

Glabellar lines are the “11s” that form between the eyebrows when you squint or frown. Over time, these lines can become more apparent, making your resting expression look upset or angry.

Brow Furrows

You develop horizontal wrinkles across the center of your forehead after years of raising your eyebrows.

Crow’s Feet

The creases that form at the outer corners of the eyes earned the nickname “crow’s feet” because they resemble a bird’s tiny three-toed footprints. Crow’s feet can worsen over time as you lose collagen and elastin around your eyes, especially if you squint or smile frequently.

Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are horizontal creases that form over the uppermost bridge of the nose. If you consistently wipe your nose upward or squint with your nose, these lines can become more apparent and permanent.

Chin Dimples

The pebbly appearance across the chin can result from the overuse of the mentalis muscle. This phenomenon happens to patients who have smoked for many years or roll their chin upward when making expressions.

Neck Bands

Neck bands appear when the muscles on either side of the neck become tightened or thick over time. This concern is prevalent among women and primarily results from looking down at a phone or computer.

How Are Dysport Injections Performed at Skinlogic?

Skinlogic offers Dysport® in the relaxing and comfortable environment of her Skinlogic practice. The treatment is quick and simple. After a brief consultation to discuss your goals, the injections take 20 minutes to complete. We perform injections using a thin, fine needle that is much smaller than the ones used to draw blood or administer vaccinations. This size allows for precise control when targeting the delicate facial muscles. In most cases, it also eliminates the need for a topical anesthetic. Let us know if you’re uncomfortable around needles or concerned about discomfort. We can apply a topical anesthetic or cold compress before your treatment to reduce the sensitivity of the treatment area.

Recovery After Dysport Injections in Annapolis

Due to the non-invasive nature of Dysport® injections, there is no downtime or recovery necessary after treatment. There will be some mild redness, swelling, and possible bruising around the injection sites, but these symptoms generally resolve on their own after a few hours. You must refrain from vigorous exercise for 24 hours after any neurotoxin. 

However, we ask you to refrain from touching your face or participating in strenuous activities that may cause you to sweat. Sweat carries bacteria that can get into the tiny injection injuries and cause inflammation or infection. The best way to avoid these complications is to keep your skin clean for the first 24 hours after your procedure.

Dysport® results will reveal themselves over the next five to seven days, as your muscles relax and your wrinkles begin to smooth out. The untreated muscles will remain animated and contract as normal. Generally, the active ingredient in Dysport® will wear off after three to six months. You can repeat maintenance treatments as often as needed to encourage continuous results.

How Many Glen Burnie Dysport Injections Will I Need?

The number of Dysport® injections you’ll require to reach your cosmetic goals will depend on your concerns and the extent of your unique treatment plan. In your consultation, we will confirm how many units of Dysport® you need to achieve your optimal results.
