Resolve Fine Wrinkles with Dysport

May 9, 2019, 11:24 pm

Wrinkles make people feel and look older than they really are. These frustrating reminders of the aging process seem to appear almost overnight and may feel impossible to get rid of.

The easiest way to weed a garden is to pluck out the weeds right when they appear – and this same principle applies to wrinkles. The quicker you stop them in their tracks, the easier they are to control.

Wrinkles are the easiest to treat when they are at their most shallow. With age, these fine wrinkles can get deeper and more difficult to resolve. Stress, sun exposure, and pollution are the major factors that deepen wrinkles.

Modern pharmacology has blessed us with numerous options to smooth away fine wrinkles before they get worse, and one of the most popular of these options is Dysport.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is an injectable product made from a protein extracted from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. This cosmetic beauty product resolves wrinkles by blocking nerve signals from reaching the contracted muscles of the face. This allows these contracted muscles to relax, in turn letting the skin relax and making wrinkles disappear.

What Are the Advantages of Using Dysport?

Unlike injectable fillers products, which are another way to address wrinkles, Dysport can be used to either treat fine age lines or prevent the appearance of new age lines. Fillers are also unable to relax facial muscles, making them better for correction of other types of wrinkles.

Dysport offers almost instant results within a few days. Anti-wrinkle creams, although expensive, do not show results for several weeks, and the results are nowhere near as good as those of Dysport. It often even works faster than Botox.

Patients do not need drastic measures such as plastic surgery to make fine lines disappear; Dysport is a much less invasive solution. It is also painless and does not need any painkiller administration before, during, or after the procedure.

The procedure itself is an outpatient procedure and is very quick, taking only about 20 minutes to perform. And because the procedure is only minimally invasive, patients will not need any downtime or recovery time afterwards. Instead, they can return to their regular schedule immediately.

Unlike fillers, which typically work only on small areas and therefore require several injections, Dysport is a good option for large areas, because it spreads evenly. The reason it spreads so easily is because it has a lower protein concentration than other injectables. Dysport can even treat wrinkles that do not respond to Botox anymore.

Because Dysport blocks the signals that are transferred from nerves to muscles, you can make normal facial movements and your forehead will be free of those ugly wrinkles.
