At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, our doctors are considered experts in injectables treatments. Dysport is an injectable medication designed to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the glabellar lines (eyebrows), forehead creases and crow’s feet. Like Botox, Dysport in San Diego is used to relax the underlying muscles, reducing wrinkles. It has been shown to deliver temporary improvements to moderate to severe wrinkles on the face.
Our doctors perform all Dysport injections themselves, thus ensuring that each patient receives the best care and treatment possible, as well as the best results. Our doctors are skilled and able to avoid unwanted side effects in most patients due to their extensive experience and knowledge of Dysport effects and facial anatomy.
How does it work?
Dysport in San Diego is injected directly into the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, temporarily relaxing them. It stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. Weakening the strength of these muscles will decrease the tension that they place on the skin, allowing the wrinkles to flatten out. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles continue to contract normally, leaving your normal facial expression unaffected. The results generally last 4 – 6 months.
What causes wrinkles?
As we age, wrinkles begin to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers break down and wear out. Additionally, wrinkles appear over time due to repeated movements of facial skin through muscles, most commonly around the eyebrows, mouth, and eyes. San Diego neuromodulator injections can be used to help prevent new wrinkles from appearing.
What Age Group is Dysport For?
Wrinkles are not only age-related. Frown lines are “dynamic” – they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Neuromodulators are used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age.
While side effects are minimal, the most common ones are:
- Nose and throat irritation
- Injection site pain
- Injection site skin reaction
- Upper respiratory tract infection
- Eyelid swelling
- Eyelid drooping
- Sinus inflammation
If you do experience any of these side effects, do not worry, they will go away within a few days.
