Throughout your life, you have no doubt had many reasons to express emotions with your face. There have been times of unbridled joy that have caused you to smile from ear to ear. There have also been times of intense sadness that have led to tears. Each one of these expressions have allowed you to show the world what you feel on the inside. They have helped to shape who you are.
Something that is a surprise for most people is the fact that every time we make a facial expression, we are laying the groundwork for the creation of fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, the wrinkles that you will develop in your forehead as you age or along the side of your mouth are the result of repetitive muscle movements that stem from facial expressions. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkles.
Some examples of dynamic wrinkles are crow’s feet or the creases that form between your eyebrows. As long as we express emotion with our face, there’s absolutely nothing that we can do to prevent dynamic wrinkles from happening. There is nothing that we can do to stop or to reverse the aging process. However, there are steps that we can take to minimize its power. One of these steps includes using a product called Dysport®.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a treatment that is used to temporarily remove dynamic wrinkles. Similar to products like BOTOX®, Dysport® is made from the same substance. It blocks the nerve impulses that cause the muscles in our face to move when we want to express emotion. As a result of the Dysport®, the muscles in the face are unable to contract. The fine lines and wrinkles that are created by our muscle contractions eventually smooth out.
Dysport® is a very localized treatment. It will only affect the muscles that our trained cosmetic specialist targets. The rest of your face will continue to function normally, and your facial expressions are not targeted.
Dysport® has been proven to be an effective weapon when it comes to treating wrinkles on the upper face, as well as addressing areas around the mouth or other contour features. On its own, the treatment is an exceptionally powerful treatment. However, when it is paired with other treatments like dermal fillers or a facial, it can produce stellar results.
Are You a Good Candidate for Dysport®?
If you are unhappy with what you see when you look in the mirror and you want to do something about the wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes, then Dysport® may be right for you. To get the most benefit from this treatment, you should be in good health and have a good understanding of what the treatment can do for you.
Just a few days after your Dysport® treatment, you will start to see the positive results. The skin on your face will look smoother and more relaxed.
