How Can You Get Rid of Frown Lines? Discover Dysport

Frown lines are a natural part of aging, but that doesn’t mean you like them. Thankfully, you also don’t have to put up with them! At SkinMD in Chicago, IL, we offer Dysport: the perfect, FDA-approved way to get the precise, wrinkle-reducing results you’re looking for. This treatment really works, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.

Discover the Frown-Line Destroying Power of Dysport

Dysport is a type of neuromodulator, the most famous of which is Botox. All these injectable treatments work on the same principle. When you inject a neuromodulator carefully into the muscles of the face, it blocks the communication between the nerves and muscles. When the nerves can no longer signal the muscles to tense up, they relax. Then fine lines and wrinkles smooth out and disappear.

The active ingredient in this treatment is botulinum toxin, which releases an enzyme that tells nerve cells not to send their messages to your muscle cells. The enzyme does that by binding to proteins used in nerve signaling, which stops them from making their journey to the muscles. The effect is temporary, but it lasts for months; and the good news is that the more treatments you get, the more likely it is that you’ll need less and less to achieve the same result.

Understanding Your Wrinkles

The most common reason that wrinkles develop is muscle movement. Every time you make an expression, your skin creases in the same way. Since the skin on our faces is thinner than the skin on the rest of the body, these creases tend to stay more readily on our faces than on any other place where our skin naturally crinkles, such as the inner arm.

The skin on our face also tends to age more quickly than the rest of our skin, in part because of the constant movement, but also because our faces are always exposed to the sun. As the skin ages, it loses collagen and elastin, which are key proteins necessary to healthy, supple skin that bounces back when you move.

What Else Can Dysport Do?

Get Rid of Crow’s Feet

This injectable Dysport For Crows Feet treatment is great for frown lines, but it’s also effective at smoothing the skin around the eyes. These wrinkles, usually called crow’s feet, are also caused by constant muscle movement and the same age-related skin changes that cause frown lines.

As we age, our crow’s feet lines deepen and transform from dynamic wrinkles–those caused by movement–to static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are the lines that show on our faces at all times, even when we aren’t making movements. Crow’s feet are one of the biggest age giveaways, and especially once they become static.

Help You Look Happy

Frown lines are called that for a reason. They are the glabellar lines that form between the eyebrows above the nose whenever we’re angry, worried, or even just concentrating. We associate these lines with a bad mood, so when you have permanent frown lines, the world perceives you as being angry or upset, even when you aren’t.

When you treat these lines, you look happier and younger. You can present the face you want to the world instead of inadvertently presenting an angry face to everyone.

Offer Rapid Results

This treatment gets results, and they are very fast. Most people see effects within a day or so, and the full results usually develop within a week. Although a few people do need just a little more time than this for their results to develop, no one ever has to wait very long! That’s just one reason injectables are such popular treatments.

Offer Subtle Results

It’s important to know that your results can be as subtle as you like. You won’t go into our office looking like one person and come out looking like a completely different person. You won’t look frozen or unnatural. Instead, you’ll look refreshed and more youthful. Most people will assume you’ve just had a mini-vacation or gotten a few nights of uninterrupted rest!

Maintain the Appearance You Want

Dysport has the same ingredient as Botox, but the molecules are smaller and the product is more diluted. This doesn’t make it “better” or “worse.” It just makes it different. One product will be better for treating certain areas of the face, while the other product will be a better choice for other parts of the face.

Dysport’s makeup makes it particularly good for treating the forehead. The smaller molecules and more diluted proteins spread easily through the area and make it easy for us to give you a perfectly balanced, natural appearance.

The Importance of Symmetry

Why is a balanced appearance important? If you don’t have a natural balance to both sides of your face, you look irregular, heavy, or even angry. Always choose a provider with the experience, knowledge of anatomy, and artistic skill to perfectly inject your treatments. That way, you can be sure you’ll look natural and fresh.

Get You Out the Door Quickly

If you don’t have time for a labor-intensive treatment or one with a long and complicated recovery, you’ll love injectables. Unlike invasive surgeries that require all kinds of planning to arrange and lots of downtimes to recover from, injectibles require very little time from your busy schedule.

It takes as little as 30 minutes from the moment you walk in until the moment you walk out. Many people can fit treatment into their lunch hour.

Understanding the Process

All treatments start with a consultation. We’ll examine your skin and talk about the results you’re looking for. We’ll also find out about your medical history and any supplements or medications you’re taking: but don’t worry. There aren’t many things that preclude you from having treatment, and the vast majority of people who want this treatment are eligible for it.

We’ll help you craft a plan for treatment that will help you meet your goals. We’ll also let you know how to prepare for treatment. Not much is required, but we may ask you to temporarily stop using certain medications that might interfere with your results.

During your treatment, we’ll cleanse the treatment site and apply a topical numbing agent, if you would like, to ensure your complete comfort. We’ll then go through with you injections in a careful, targeted way designed to ensure we get exactly the results you’re looking for. The injection process itself takes just 10-20 minutes, and then you’re free to go home, back to work, or whatever your schedule demands.

Be a Botox Alternative

Botox is the world’s most-requested injectable treatment, and that’s in part because it’s the oldest treatment of its type, but mostly it’s because it works! However, there are a few people for whom Botox does not work. Some people may experience good results at first, but over time they may find they aren’t getting the look they’re hoping for anymore. This is because some people’s bodies naturally produce an antibody that neutralizes the effects of the Botox protein. This renders it useless.

If you’re one of this small minority of people, Dysport could be the answer. It doesn’t have the protein that causes this antibody reaction, and thus it is much less likely to cause an antibody reaction, even if you’ve experienced a reaction with Botox in the past. Because it has fewer ingredients than Botox (sometimes it’s called a “naked” formula), it can work when Botox doesn’t.

Prevent Wrinkles From Forming

With many things in life, it’s easier to prevent a problem than to treat it. If you can stop wrinkles from ever forming, you’ll like your look even more than if you get rid of wrinkles that are already there! You don’t have to wait until you see wrinkles to seek this treatment. Getting injections early can train your muscles, stopping them from making the expressions that cause wrinkles and lines to appear. This means you’ll look a lot younger for a lot longer.

Give You Lasting Results

Each of us is unique, so results do vary by individual. However, most people get to enjoy their results for five or six months, so with just a couple of treatments in a year, you can keep your wrinkles at bay. This isn’t a permanent treatment, of course, so you should expect results to gradually taper off.

It’s important to know, too, that if you wait until the treatment has completely worn off and all the wrinkles are back, it will take a bigger dose to restore your look. If you get treatment as soon as you begin to notice a change, you’ll keep your seamlessly smooth appearance, and it will take a smaller dose to get you there.

Work for Nearly Everyone

Because this treatment is safe and easy to administer, it works for almost anyone who wants it. The average person who gets treatment is over 40 and under 65, but these aren’t hard-and-fast rules. Come talk to us if you’re worried about wrinkles, no matter what your age. If you are under 40, talk to us about whether this is a good option for preventing wrinkles and keeping a youthful look for longer.

A Treatment for Men

There’s a public perception that anti-wrinkle treatments are just for women, but this treatment works just as well for men. Men also develop wrinkles and lines, and men want to look their best just like women! Thankfully, the era of stigma against men seeking cosmetic treatments is passing, and it is now common to see men come in because they also want to look and feel their best.

We don’t recommend this injectable for pregnant or nursing women, anyone with a skin infection at the treatment site, anyone suffering from certain skin or medical conditions, and anyone allergic to any of the ingredients or who has experienced a reaction to injectables before. In some cases, we’ll help you decide on a different treatment that might be better. In other cases, you may just need to wait for a short time before seeking treatment.
