When wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial movements like frowning or squinting, Dysport can be a viable treatment option to improve the appearance and prevent future skin damage. Currently, American Skin Institute providers offer Dysport in our Sherman Oaks, Westlake Village and Beverly Hills locations. We have helped thousands of patients reduce wrinkles with dermal fillers and injectables, and our providers will give you personalized attention to achieve results that look natural.
The active ingredient in Dysport injections is Botulinumtoxin A. This chemical is a muscle relaxant and is used in wrinkle treatments to prevent the contraction of certain muscles that are responsible for wrinkle formation. For example, we use Dysport in our Sherman Oaks, Westlake Village and Beverly Hills locations to treat the following skin issues:
- Frown Lines: Dysport injections are very effective for treating frown lines. These are wrinkles that appear between your eyebrows after years of squinting or furrowing your brows. This is a very common problem for most people, and eventually the wrinkles seem to create a permanently-angry expression in the face. By injecting Dysport into the treatment area, the muscles responsible for frown lines are relaxed, thus creating a friendlier, relaxed appearance.
- Crow’s Feet: These wrinkles appear on the sides of your eyes, and are caused by smiling and squinting. Years of these repetitive muscle movements cause creases to form, and become accentuated with time. Dysport can improve the appearance of these wrinkles by relaxing just the muscles responsible for the problem.
One of the biggest concerns with Dysport injections is whether the final appearance will look natural. We’ve all seen the terrible results of other Botulinumtoxin A treatments, like Botox, where a person has a “plastic” appearance and does not seem to be able to make facial expressions.
When you see bad results from Dysport or Botox, it is almost always because the injection was performed by an inexperienced or an untrained provider.
At American Skin Institute we have extensive experience administering Dysport injections correctly, in a way that provides natural results. We do this by carefully studying the wrinkle patterns and making injections only in those muscle groups that are responsible for the wrinkle, without affecting other muscles.
After your Dysport treatment in our Sherman Oaks, Westlake Village or Beverly Hills location, the appearance of your wrinkles will be reduced, but your face will still look natural. You will still be able to make facial expressions, and no one will be able to tell that you’ve had Dysport injections.
HOW LONG WILL DYSPORT RESULTS LAST?
Full Dysport results will appear approximately 7 days after treatment, as the Botulinumtoxin A takes full effect. Thereafter, the results can be expected to last approximately 3-4 months.
Some American Skin Institute patients have even been able to achieve longer term results through development of muscle memory that may be achieved in some patients with regular treatment. For example, patients who receive treatments every 3 months for at least a year, tend to show improved results with development of muscle memory responses.
