Facial movements like squinting can cause lines and wrinkles to develop between your eyebrows. The loss of collagen as you age causes these lines to deepen and become more permanent, which can make you look older and give you the appearance of being angry. Dysport® is an injectable treatment specifically designed to smooth out frown lines between the brows without an overdone look.
How does the treatment work?
Dysport® is derived from botulinum toxin type A. When Dysport® is injected, it blocks nerve signals that cause tiny facial muscles to contract. Because the muscles are immobilized, the skin in the treatment area is smoothed. Dysport® is specially formulated to be able to spread over a wider area, making it ideal for use between the brows.
Am I a Candidate for Dysport® Treatment?
Men and women who wish to address moderate to severe vertical lines between their eyebrows without surgery may be good candidates for treatment with Dysport®. Patients should be in good general health and under 65 years of age. We will discuss your candidacy with you during your consultation.
First, we will examine your skin to determine the proper placement and number of injections for your needs. We will then apply a topical anesthetic for your comfort. A series of injections will be made, which typically takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
Recovery and Results
After your treatment, you may notice some swelling, redness, and slight bruising, but these side effects are temporary and should dissipate within a few days. We recommend avoiding strenuous activities for a day or so afterward to help prevent headaches.
Most patients see results within two to three days. Vertical lines between your eyebrows will be reduced, providing you with a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Injections can be repeated every few months as needed to maintain your results.
