The wrinkles that appear on your face can have a significant effect on your overall appearance. If you’re looking for a way to get a younger, healthier appearance, then our Dysport treatment at The Mack Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL can help.
How Often Should You Get Dysport?
If you’ve found that the creases that form between your eyebrows when you furrow them are becoming permanent, that’s a natural side effect of aging. Getting older means seeing some significant changes to your skin, and this is one of them. However, you may find that you don’t necessarily appreciate this change in your skin and appearance.
If you’re looking for a way to ease the appearance of these lines, then Dysport can help. This injectable is specifically to diminish the appearance of glabellar lines. The frequency with which you receive these injections will depend on several factors, including how your specific skin reacts to it and what your goals are. But most people will need to get follow-up injections every 3 to 4 months to maintain results.
What Exactly Is Dysport?
This is an injectable anti-aging treatment. It’s specifically designed to treat your glabellar lines, or the 11-shaped lines right in between your eyebrows. This injectable is made with botulinum toxin type A. This can seem like an intimidating ingredient at first, but this FDA-approved treatment is carefully formulated to be safe. The ingredient comes from a naturally-occurring bacterium called Clostridium botulinum.
This is the same ingredient used in Botox, however, the two formulas do differ. This injectable is designed to target your glabellar lines, while Botox can be used on other areas of your face. When you come to our clinic, we’ll help you determine which treatment option fits your needs and goals best.
How Does It Work?
Your brain sends signals to your muscles using neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters tell your skin to contract. When the muscles under the skin contract, the skin on top creases. Over time, these creases can become permanent.
This injectable acts as a neuromodulator, meaning that it blocks the signals sent to your muscles from your brain. This means that your muscles stay relaxed instead of tensing and that the skin on top stays smooth and wrinkle-free.
Why Do Glabellar Lines Become Permanent?
Wrinkles occur all over the face and body. Several factors contribute to the formation of wrinkles. One of the main factors is a loss of collagen and elastin in your skin. These are proteins that help give your skin its structure and elasticity. You may have higher levels of these proteins when you’re young, but aging will cause the levels to naturally reduce.
This means that your skin is less able to maintain its structural integrity. The lines that form when you make certain facial expressions, like the lines between your eyebrows, will become permanent over time. This issue can be exacerbated by unprotected exposure to the sun and certain unhealthy lifestyle habits like drinking and smoking excessively.
What Happens If I Want to Get Treatment?
If you’re considering getting this injectable to treat your aging concerns, you can trust that you’re getting a safe treatment. When you come to our clinic, you’ll be welcomed to a clean, comfortable space where we’ll work hard to provide you with safe and effective treatment.
When you book a treatment with us, the first thing that will happen is we’ll sit down for a consultation with you. This consultation will give us the chance to talk about what your specific concerns are. We’ll also talk about your goals for treatment and help you set realistic expectations.
Since Dysport is best used for those with moderate to severe glabellar lines, we’ll be able to take a look at your concerns and determine if this is the right treatment for you. We’ll also take a look at your medical history to make sure it’s the safest option.
Before the day of your injections comes, there are a few things you must do to prepare for treatment. We’ll provide you with full instructions. These instructions will be simple and easy to follow. Preparing for your treatment is not a difficult process.
We’ll just ask that you avoid a few things to make sure that this treatment is the best it can be and to prevent bruising. Don’t take any medications like aspirin or ibuprofen or any supplements like St. John’s wort that could cause the blood to thin. You’ll also need to avoid drinking alcohol and smoking for the 48 hours leading up to your injections.
We want you to be happy with your experience with us. That’s exactly why you can trust that you’re going to be in good hands throughout the entirety of the process with us. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll welcome you with open arms. The first thing we’ll do before applying the injections is that we’ll prepare your skin. To do this, we’ll start by thoroughly cleaning the area between your brows where you’ll be receiving the injections. We can also apply numbing cream to the area.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the product. You will receive multiple injections, and you may feel a very slight pressure or pinching sensation. Aside from that, there should be no pain at all during treatment. Your treatment should take just a few minutes to complete, and you’ll be able to leave afterward.
As soon as your treatment is done, you’ll be able to get back to your regular life. As long as you are mindful of a few things while the product settles beneath your skin and your skin heals, you can resume regular activities.
You will need to be careful to stay upright and not apply any pressure to the area where you’ve received your injections. For the first night after your treatment, you may need to sleep on your back. You should also avoid staying out in direct sunlight and performing any strenuous physical activity that could make you sweat. Make sure you continue avoiding alcohol and smoking over the next few days.
Who Should Get Dysport?
If you’re thinking of getting this treatment, you might be wondering if it’s the right one for you. Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider getting this injectable.
You Want to Look Younger
Any wrinkles that form on your face will age your appearance. If you want to have a younger look, then diminishing the appearance of these wrinkles will help. This injectable is especially helpful if you have moderate to severe glabellar lines.
One of the other great things about treating these wrinkles is that glabellar lines can make you look very serious, upset, or worried. When you use this injectable to get rid of your glabellar lines, you’ll look overall happier and more relaxed.
You Want a Non-Invasive Treatment
If you’re looking for an effective anti-aging treatment, there are plenty of options out there. However, not every option will be right for everyone. While surgical treatments will offer great results, you may not be ready for this option. Surgical treatments can be very invasive and often require a lengthy recovery time.
If that doesn’t sound like something you’re prepared for but still want an effective treatment for your glabellar lines, this is the perfect option for you. It’s non-invasive, the treatment itself takes just a few minutes, and recovery is easy with essentially no downtime required.
You Want a Natural-Looking Solution
Many people avoid getting injectables like this one because they’re concerned that the treatment won’t look natural. While it’s true that some patients are not happy with their results because they look “fake,” a lot of the time that’s because the technician applying the injections wasn’t trained effectively.
When you come to our clinic, you’ll know that you’re receiving your injections from highly qualified professionals. The team at our clinic is committed to providing you with the effective, natural-looking, and lasting solutions that you want to feel more comfortable and confident in your appearance.
