If you’re on the search for a treatment that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles without surgery, then you’re in luck. At A Younger You Medical Spa in Burlington, WI we believe that Dysport is an ideal solution to help women and men enjoy a younger-looking appearance. This safe and effective neuromodulator is a simple, safe, and effective option to smooth away your wrinkles and fine lines.
How Can Dysport Help You Get Rid of Frown Lines?
Dysport is a neuromodulator injectable that is used to erase fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and other areas of the face. The thinner consistency of this neuromodulator makes it a better option for those who want to treat larger areas since the solution spreads more easily than other neuromodulators. You can enjoy smoother, natural-looking skin and an overall more youthful look with a single simple treatment.
But what causes wrinkles? In general, frown lines and other wrinkles develop over time when repeated muscle movements shift lax skin on the face. Eventually, the creases formed by your facial expressions will create divots in the skin that deepen into wrinkles that can be difficult to smooth away.
Why Do Neuromodulators Work?
This is a neuromodulator treatment, which is a type of injectable that is designed to reduce muscle activity temporarily. A neuromodulator works by blocking the messages between motor nerves and facial muscles. While neurotransmitters ordinarily send messages that direct muscles to contract, a neuromodulator prevents those messages from being received by the muscle.
This gives the muscle time to rest and relax and time for your skin to stop creasing as a result of repeated facial movements. Temporarily freezing these muscles will smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on areas of the face where dermal fillers can’t be used.
When Will You See Results?
One of the neat things about neuromodulator treatments is how quickly you will be able to see your desired results. Usually, you can see the effects of this treatment within one to two days, although some patients may notice results immediately. Your full results will be noticeable about a week after your treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
Neuromodulator treatments have temporary effects. Most of the time, you can expect your results to last for about six months. In general, the longevity of your results will depend on how quickly your body metabolizes the injectable, so there are certain factors you will need to be aware of. For example, excessive exercise or living a very active lifestyle will make your body metabolize the treatment more quickly, so your results may only last closer to four months rather than six. Other things like stress and lifestyle habits may make your results dissipate more quickly.
What Is It Like When Your Results Wear Off?
Your results will wear off gradually, which is an advantage when it comes to determining how frequently you need your treatments. After several months, you will notice that small lines and wrinkles are starting to return as the neuromodulator wears off. At that time, it’s best to schedule another round of treatment.
What’s Your Ideal Treatment Frequency?
Although your results will last for about six months, it’s ideal to have your treatments once every three to four months. This frequency will prevent your skin from returning to your baseline, so this is the best method to achieve consistently youthful-looking results. Over time, because each treatment builds on the previous treatment, you will be able to stretch the time between your appointments.
How Old Should You Be for This Treatment?
There isn’t any “best” age for this treatment because everyone ages at slightly different rates depending on skin tone, skin type, genetics, and lifestyle habits. It’s common for people in their late 20s and early 30s to use this treatment, as well as people who are in their 40s and 50s. However, one thing to know about this treatment is that it’s ideal for staving off the visible signs of aging. The earlier you use this treatment, the more effective it will be for preventing fine lines and wrinkles from worsening or developing.
Will You Have Before and After Guidelines To Follow?
Yes, you will need to follow a few preparation and aftercare guidelines so your results can develop as intended. Before your treatment, you should be:
- Avoiding alcohol
- Stopping NSAIDs
- Putting away cigarettes
- Wearing daily sunscreen
After your treatment, you should be:
- Staying out of the sun
- Keeping hands away from the treatment site
- Avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and strenuous exercise
Are You a Candidate?
People who do not have a history of a severe allergic reaction, allergies to botulinum toxin, and who are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding make the best candidates for this treatment. Because this treatment is non-invasive and FDA-approved, it is considered a safe treatment for most people. If you want to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – both new and old – then you are likely a good candidate for this treatment.
