When you first start to notice the telltale signs of aging on your face, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. One reason is because you are realizing that your appearance is changing. Another reason is because there are so many cosmetic procedures out there to choose from. But which procedure is right for you? One option is surgery. And to be fair, there are some very effective surgical procedures that can help to address wrinkles. There may be a point in your life when you need cosmetic surgery to get the results that you want. However, if you are just seeing the effects of aging for the first time in the mirror, then it’s likely that surgery is not what you need. Instead, you might benefit from a non-surgical treatment such as Dysport®.
Dysport® is an injectable product that is designed to temporarily relax some of your facial muscles, thereby preventing them from contracting as powerfully as they did before the treatment. Dysport® is a product that shares a lot of similarities with BOTOX®. In fact, both are derived from the same main ingredient.
Dysport® is designed to help you address your dynamic wrinkles without giving you that frozen-face look. To be fair, the majority of people who have that frozen-face look do not have it because of using injectables like Dysport®, but instead because they had a surgical procedure done that was not carried out quite properly.
Dysport® has been shown to help adults who have frown lines in between their eyebrows change the appearance of this section of the face without negatively impacting the rest of their face. While it does minimize the wrinkles that they have in their forehead area, it does not prevent a person from making normal, everyday facial expressions.
The wrinkles that you see on your forehead or around your eyes are referred to as dynamic wrinkles. This is because these wrinkles appear and disappear based on your facial movements. When you smile or when you frown, that’s when you see these wrinkles. However, when your face is at rest, these wrinkles all but disappear. This is exactly what Dysport® aims to do.
You can learn more about Dysport® during a consultation with our specialist at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Orlando. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment and get started!
