As you enter your late twenties and early thirties, you will begin to notice crow’s feet, frown lines, and other wrinkles when you look at yourself in the mirror. Although these wrinkles and fine lines are normal, they can make you look tired, sad, or upset. Fortunately, you don’t have to receive an invasive procedure to fix these imperfections. At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, Texas, we can reduce your wrinkles with Dysport. Read on to learn more about this minimally invasive treatment.
Is Dysport the Best Remedy for Crow’s Feet?
Dysport is an injectable product that can temporarily reduce wrinkles and fine lines. This product is one of the best ways to fix wrinkles that appear around your eyes. These wrinkles are commonly called crow’s feet.
In a scientific study done particularly on this product, it was shown to work better at treating crow’s feet than other wrinkle reduction methods. In this study, many people said this injectable treatment was more effective than a similar injectable treatment and did a better job of minimizing their crow’s feet while they were smiling.
Why Do I Have Crow’s Feet and Other Wrinkles?
Also known as lateral orbital rhytids, crow’s feet are formed when you make repeated facial movements. Every time that you squint, the muscles near your eyes will contract, and your skin will fold and crease. When you are young, your skin will snap back into place when you relax your face.
Over time, your skin will become less resilient and elastic. As you age, your levels of collagen and elastin will decrease. Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep your skin strong and firm. As your levels of these proteins decline, your skin will struggle to recover from the movements caused by your repeated facial movements. As a result, you will develop wrinkles around your eyes.
In addition to forming lines around your eyes, your facial expressions will cause you to develop other wrinkles on your face. For instance, if you frequently furrow your brow, you will develop lines on your forehead.
What Issues Can This Product Treat?
This injectable product isn’t just for crow’s feet. This treatment can improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines on your forehead and between your eyebrows. We can also use this product to minimize lines on other areas of your face.
In addition to reducing wrinkles, this product can be used to address certain health conditions. For instance, this product can improve TMJ disorders and migraines.
How Does This Product Improve My Wrinkles?
This innovative product uses a purified form of Botulinum Toxin Type A to temporarily improve the appearance of your wrinkles. The bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces Botulinum Toxin Type A.
Once we administer your injections, this substance will interrupt the communication between your nerves and your facial muscles. Stopping your nerves from sending signals to your muscles will temporarily relax these muscles. The facial muscles in your treatment area will stop making the repeated contractions that cause crow’s feet and other wrinkles to develop, and your skin will look smoother and more youthful.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
If this is your first time receiving an injectable treatment, don’t worry. We have extensive experience performing these injections, and we will help you feel at ease throughout your appointment.
We will begin your treatment by administering a topical numbing cream to your target area. This cream will enable you to feel comfortable and relaxed as we perform your injections. Once the cream has taken effect, we will use a very small needle to inject the product into your muscles. This is a straightforward process that usually only takes about fifteen to thirty minutes.
How Long Will My Recovery Period Last?
If you can’t afford to take weeks off from your job and other duties, you’re in luck. This wrinkle reduction method is very easy on your body, and you will have minimal to no downtime after your treatment is complete. In fact, you can return to your home or office right away.
How Quickly Will My Wrinkles Improve?
This injectable product is an ideal way to quickly improve your wrinkles. You will usually see positive changes in your appearance within three to five days.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Although this treatment provides long-lasting results, it will not permanently minimize your wrinkles. Since your body is unique, your individual results will vary. That said, the effects of your treatment may last for three to four months.
You can preserve your new look by getting follow-up treatments. During your initial consultation, we can develop a tentative maintenance plan based on your schedule, preferences, and aesthetic goals.
Will My Face Look Worse After This Treatment Wears Off?
You might have heard rumors that your face will look older once your results wear off. Further, some people believe that this treatment will cause your skin to age more quickly. These rumors are not accurate, and you should not worry about these issues.
As your body processes this injectable product, your face will gradually return to its previous appearance. Your wrinkles and lines will not be deeper or more noticeable. In fact, your continued use of this product will decrease the muscle movements that lead to facial wrinkles. As a result, receiving regular maintenance treatments can prevent fine lines on your face from turning into severe wrinkles.
When Should I Begin Using This Wrinkle Reduction Method?
Since your body is unique, you will not age at the same rate as your peers. For instance, if you have a genetic predisposition to wrinkles, you will develop lines on your face at an earlier age than your friends.
Instead of paying attention to your age, you should focus on the appearance of your skin. You should consider starting this treatment as soon as you begin to develop wrinkles and fine lines that bother you. This product is great at minimizing lines that are not visible when your face is at rest. Receiving this injectable treatment can prevent these lines from turning into deeper wrinkles that are more difficult to treat. Accordingly, you can achieve more beneficial results by starting this treatment at a relatively early age.
What Is the Difference Between This Product and Other Injectable Treatments?
We offer a wide variety of injectable products that can temporarily reduce your wrinkles and smooth your skin. These products are all very safe and effective. However, they contain different ingredients and are designed to treat a large number of issues and imperfections.
Dysport is part of our fantastic range of neuromodulators. As their name suggests, neuromodulators are products that interact with your nerves. This family of products includes Botox and Xeomin. These injectable treatments temporarily improve your wrinkles by preventing your nerves from communicating with your muscles.
Although these products each use the same method to reduce your wrinkles, they have distinct formulas and are made using different manufacturing processes. Since you may react differently to each of these products, you can benefit from trying out a variety of neuromodulators. For instance, if you have been using Botox for a long time, you might notice that your skin no longer reacts strongly to this product. In this case, you might achieve more optimal results by switching to a new injectable product.
In addition to neuromodulators, we use many different dermal fillers to smooth your skin and minimize your wrinkles. Dermal fillers do not change the communication between your muscles and your nerves. Instead, many of these injectable products use a substance called hyaluronic acid to improve your appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar that helps your skin retain volume and moisture. Once we inject the dermal filler into your target area, the hyaluronic acid in the product will fill in your wrinkles and add volume to your treatment area.
For instance, Vollure can reduce the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles. Voluma uses hyaluronic acid to restore lost volume to your cheeks. Restylane Silk is an innovative injectable treatment that can give you full, attractive lips.
Choosing a Treatment
Choosing an injectable treatment is a very significant decision. During our initial consultation, we will analyze your face and discuss how your skin has responded to injectable treatments that you’ve received in the past. We will use this information to recommend an injectable treatment that is tailored to fit your unique aesthetic goals.
Will My Face Be Frozen After I Receive This Treatment?
You’ve probably seen images of people whose faces look frozen or stiff after they have used injectable products to reduce their wrinkles. Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about this issue when you receive an injectable treatment at Le Beau Visage Medical Spa.
We have a great deal of experience using neuromodulators and other injectable treatments to reduce wrinkles and smooth skin. We have in-depth knowledge of these products, and we know how to administer your injections in an accurate manner. In fact, as an advanced injectable trainer, Dr. Riehs helps physicians and nurses learn how to use cosmetic products properly.
We will use our advanced skills and knowledge to enhance your appearance in a natural-looking manner. Rather than looking stiff or frozen, you will appear to be refreshed and youthful once your treatment is complete. You will still be able to smile, laugh, and make other facial expressions.
Am I Eligible to Receive This Treatment?
If you are an adult who has crow’s feet, frown lines, and other wrinkles on your face, you are likely to be a good candidate for this treatment. This gentle technique is a great way to minimize these imperfections in a quick, minimally invasive manner.
Although this treatment is very straightforward and quick, you cannot use this product if you have certain health conditions. For instance, you should not receive this treatment while you are pregnant or nursing. Your physician can tell you when you can resume using this treatment after you give birth.
You also should not use this treatment if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients in the injectable product or to cow’s milk protein. Similarly, this treatment is not right for you if have had an allergic reaction to a different botulinum toxin product like Xeomin or Botox. In addition, you should not use this wrinkle reduction method while you have a skin infection in your treatment area.
