Dysport® is a cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of a purified protein solution in the skin’s epidermis to remove moderate to severe frown lines that appear between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. This FDA-approved injectable is also administered by Spa Black, our med spa San Antonio, to remove wrinkles on the forehead. The injection works beneath the skin to block the transmission of nerve signals to the muscle while improving moderate to severe frown lines.
How Dysport® works
As you age and your facial muscles begin to contract, your skin tends to move along with them. This results in contours, or wrinkles if the muscles are returned to resting position. These are referred to as “dynamic” lines or wrinkles since they happen as a result of the way you move your facial muscles. Over time, and after several movements, these lines or creases can significantly deepen. This, combined with the natural reduction in collagen as you age, results in severe facial wrinkles and lines.
This injectable treatment at our spa San Antonio aims to block the nerve signals from reaching the muscles. Eventually, this results in a temporary reduction of muscle activity and prevents the contraction of the muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines. With a single Dysport® injection into each of the target spots, this procedure can help reduce wrinkles and help restore your youthful look. If the frown lines on your forehead are giving you sleepless nights, then this might just be the best temporary solution for your condition.
How Long Does It Last?
The result of a single Dysport® injection may last for up to four months. The treatment is quick and safe and can be performed during your lunch break. A Dysport® session can last 10 to 20 minutes.
Dysport® may not be for you if:
- You have weak muscles in the area under treatment
- You have inflammation on the treatment site
- You have a thick and oily skin
- You have droopy or sagging eyelids
Dysport® injectable is administered to clear the skin around the eyes as well as the forehead of wrinkles. The procedure works by relaxing muscles around the treatment area so they cannot move to form wrinkles. It also softens existing lines over time.
