Aging comes with many benefits like wisdom and experience. But there are some side effects that you may not appreciate, like changes to the way your skin looks and feels. At The Mack Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL, our Dysport treatments can offer you the fast and effective results that you’re looking for. Here’s what you should know.
Does Dysport Work Immediately?
Anyone unhappy with the signs of aging they’re experiencing and who wants to find a fast-acting solution should consider Dysport. This injectable will offer you a noticeable change in the way you look just 2 to 3 days after you get your injections.
The full effects of your treatment will be visible within 1 to 2 weeks of your appointment, and you’ll love how much younger your overall appearance is.
What Is Dysport?
This is an injectable that is used to treat cosmetic concerns on the face. It can also be used to treat some medical issues. Like Botox, its main ingredient is botulinum toxin type A which is a toxin found in various places in nature. In small amounts, it is completely safe to use as a cosmetic treatment.
This treatment is approved by the FDA and formulated to provide you with effective results safely.
What Makes Skin Wrinkle?
When your skin begins to wrinkle as you get older, there are several factors at work. Your skin contains proteins like elastin and collagen which help your skin maintain its elasticity, “snapping” back into place when the muscles beneath are relaxed. Over time, however, you’ll find that the levels of these chemicals start to lower.
This makes your skin more prone to wrinkling, especially as you make repeated facial movements. Your skin is no longer able to smooth out on its own when the muscles are relaxed, leading to permanent lines on your face.
How Does It Work?
This treatment is injected into the desired areas of your face using a small needle to ensure that the process is as precise as possible. When it’s injected into your targeted areas, it acts as a neuromodulator.
Your brain sends signals to your muscles telling them to contract, making your skin crease. The Dysport will block these signals from reaching your muscles, forcing the muscles to stay relaxed and keeping your skin wrinkle-free.
What Is the Difference Between Dysport and Botox?
Both this injectable and Botox use the same main ingredient. However, there are some differences between the two. Namely, the protein additives in each are different.
They are also used to target different issues. This injectable is best for moderate to severe glabellar lines. Botox, on the other hand, can be used on more mild lines.
What Does It Treat?
Your frown lines, or your glabellar lines, are the lines that appear in between your eyebrows when you frown or furrow your brow. The more you make this expression, the deeper these lines will become. They can make you appear perpetually confused or angry.
If you’d like to reduce their appearance, then this injectable is the perfect option, especially if your lines are particularly deep. You’ll look happier and more relaxed when you get this treatment to reduce the appearance of your frown lines.
When you raise your brows, this makes horizontal lines run across your forehead. Over time, these lines may become permanent and make you look constantly surprised.
If you’d like a more youthful and relaxed appearance, then getting this injectable in the area can help by relaxing the muscles and keeping the skin smooth.
The little lines that appear around the outer corners of your eyes are called crow’s feet. They can age your appearance dramatically. They are often some of the first wrinkles to appear on your face largely because the skin around your eyes is more delicate than the rest of your face.
This injectable can be applied to the area, freezing the muscles and smoothing out these lines for more youthful, brighter eyes.
One of the major benefits of this injectable is that it isn’t just a great method of treating cosmetic concerns on your face. It can also be an effective way to manage a variety of medical conditions including cervical dystonia.
This is a condition that causes uncontrollable and painful contractions of the muscles in the neck. There is no cure for this condition, but you can get injections of this product in your neck to relax the muscles and manage your symptoms.
If you deal with migraines regularly, then you know how painful they can be. More than just a headache, chronic migraines can make it difficult to live your life to the fullest.
If you have migraines and are looking for a way to deal with them, then your doctor may suggest getting injections of this treatment. It may not be able to cure your migraines, but it will offer you a great way to manage them.
You can also use this injectable to treat a variety of issues concerning your eyes. If you have a lazy eye, for instance, you can use this product to even out the muscles and allow your eyes you line up properly.
It can also be an effective treatment option for uncontrollable blinking as well as for spasms in the eyelids.
What Will Happen During Treatment?
Before Your Appointment
There are a few things you’ll need to do before your injections to prepare your skin. We’ll provide you with complete instructions on getting your skin ready to ensure treatment is as effective and safe as possible.
We will ask that you not consume any alcohol or tobacco in the 24 to 48 hours leading up to your injections. You should also avoid supplements like fish oil and St. John’s wort as well as medications like aspirin as all of these can act as blood thinners.
The Treatment Process
This injectable is a non-invasive treatment option, meaning that the process will be comfortable and fast. We’ll start by cleaning your skin to remove any sweat or grime that may have gathered on it prior to your appointment. We’ll then apply a topical numbing cream.
You may feel a very slight pinching sensation as the needle is applied to your desired areas. We’ll apply several injections, using small amounts of the product at a time. Treatment will be fast with most appointments taking as little as 15 minutes total. As soon as it’s done, you can leave the clinic.
As a non-invasive treatment, the healing process is very simple and easy. You can get back to your everyday life as soon as treatment is finished. There are just a few things you’ll need to remember as your skin heals.
For the next few days, continue avoiding substances like alcohol and tobacco. You should also stay out of direct sunlight since your skin will be much more sensitive. Avoid any strenuous physical activity or anything that could make you sweat excessively.
How Many Sessions Will Be Necessary?
The number of sessions that you’ll need to get your desired results will depend on a few things. If you’re looking to treat cosmetic concerns, then unless you have especially severe wrinkles, you’ll likely only need one treatment session to get the results you’re looking for.
However, if you’re using this product to treat your medical conditions, you may need a few before you see the full effects of your treatment. If you’re looking to treat your medical conditions, then you and your practitioner will discuss your needs and help you come up with a realistic management plan.
What Will My Results Be Like?
When you visit our clinic, we’ll discuss your goals to ensure that your treatment is what you need it to be. We can easily customize your treatment to be as dramatic or subtle as you wish.
You can expect to enjoy your results for around 5 months before they begin to fade. You can easily combine this injectable with other treatments like dermal fillers to help target even more cosmetic concerns that you may have and keep your face looking young and healthy.
