As the body ages, repeated facial movements such as frowning, smiling, and squinting cause our skin to obtain creases or lines. Dysport issues a signal block to essentially allow the muscles that cause wrinkles to relax.
At Waccamaw Dermatology, we use Dysport as a cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Dysport is commonly used for wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows, across the forehead, at the corners of the mouth, and on the chin.
If you are interested in receiving a Dysport treatment, contact Waccamaw Dermatology for a consultation appointment.
Dysport is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. This injection temporarily reduces specific muscle activity between the eyebrows without affecting the rest of the face.
This treatment provides natural results to enhance the skin’s natural beauty. Patients may see results 2-3 days after treatment and can last up to 5 months.
Dysport is used for patients with moderate to severe glabellar lines only. If you have mild lines you may not qualify for this treatment.
Areas commonly treated include:
Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows, across the forehead, at the corners of the mouth, and on the chin.
Before receiving a Dysport treatment, your dermatologist will evaluate your past and current medical conditions to ensure that you are an eligible candidate. There are several health conditions, such as muscle or nerve conditions, as well as being pregnant, that may disqualify you for treatment. In addition, the dermatologist will review the risks and possible side effects of the treatment.
During the procedure you may experience slight pressure from the injection, but shouldn’t feel major pain or discomfort.
The recovery is quick and requires little downtime. A patient may experience slight side effects, but nothing major.
