After being approved by the FDA in 2009, Dysport® quickly became one of the most popular injectable treatments in the country. This unique product can be used to diminish the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and other age-related blemishes throughout the face. Instead of simply masking the wrinkles, Dysport® treats the root causes of the blemishes in order to create long-term results.
Wrinkles can be caused by many different things, including clenched facial muscles. Over the years, your facial expressions create fine lines and wrinkles in areas such as the forehead and the corners of the eyes. Some patients attempt to treat these blemishes with fillers, but the results aren’t always natural-looking. A few decades ago, doctors began to notice that wrinkles near the eyes would fade away when an individual was injected with a certain purified protein solution.
The Science Behind Dysport®
The ingredient in this product was originally used to treat eye twitches and other involuntary movements. After extensive research, researchers were surprised to discover that wrinkles near the treatment sites were suddenly disappearing. Once the solution is injected into a muscle, it will block nerve signals to the brain. Those muscles eventually begin to relax. That allows the nearby skin to return to its natural position.
The Ideal Dysport® Candidate
Thousands of surgeries are carried out every year to tighten and tone skin, but invasive procedures aren’t right for everyone. Not only is there a risk of permanent scarring, but the recovery can be incredibly hard on a patient as well. Dysport® injections are a great option for anyone who is unhappy with facial wrinkles, but not quite ready for cosmetic surgery.
Say Goodbye to Lines and Wrinkles
Dysport® tends to spread out slightly more than other injectables, and that is one of the reasons why the results look so natural. You won’t have to worry about a stiff or stoic appearance following your injections at our med spa in San Antonio.
