Realize Your Skin’s Potential with Dysport

It is believed that emotions and opposable thumbs set us apart from animals. While emotions like happiness, sadness and fear are important to feel and express, wearing the lines and wrinkles from smiling or frowning is less desirable. Most people develop frown lines as they age, for some people frown lines are more prominent and detract from the overall appearance of their face. Frown lines can also age you making you appear older than you are. Dysport, an injectable dermal filler can help erase frown lines and renew your face.

The Science of Frown Lines

dysport-torontoThe technical name for the wrinkles that are commonly referred to as “frown lines” is Glabellar lines. This term refers to wrinkles that appear between a person’s eyebrows. Although these vertical wrinkles are most commonly caused by aging and the contortion of the face when making facial expressions, there are number of factors that can contribute to the appearance of Glabellar lines. These factors include:

Smoking

Smoking increases the likelihood of developing frown lines at an early age and can worsen existing frown lines. Smoking reduces the amount of natural collagen your body is able to produce, and collagen keeps the skin firm and youthful.

Prolonged Sun Exposure

While smoking prevents your body from making enough new collagen, too much UV light can damage the collagen that is already present in your delicate skin. Damaged collagen also reduces the amount and quality of new collagen that is produced, it also makes dark spots and sun damage more apparent.

Aging

As you age the skin naturally loosens and the collagen fibres wear down causing the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. Dysport treatments work by immobilizing the area between the eyebrows, limiting the amount of movement that can occur. Reduced movement results in less stress on the collagen in the area and fewer wrinkles and fine lines.

Dysport The Wrinkle Eraser

Dysport is the leading European cosmeceutical dermal filler used to drastically reduce the appearance and occurrence of frown lines, wrinkles and fine lines primarily in the brow and eye area. An excellent Anti Aging treatment, Dysport trats moderate to severe frown lines in adults who are 65 years old or younger.

How does it work?

Dysport is derived from the same active ingredients that are found in Botox, a popular dermal filler first introduced more than a decade ago. Both products are a safe type of Botulinum Type A, a special neurotoxin that is used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and other fine wrinkles on the face. Dysport also smoothes the skin for a more youthful and refined appearance. While similar to Botox, the key difference between the two is, Dysport is formulated to be a smaller molecule making it an ideal choice for delicate areas of the face. The treatment works by blocking communication between the nerves and muscles allowing them to relax completely. Dysport is also clinically proven to last longer than its predecessor.

What are the Most Common Side Effects?

Dysport may cause some minor side effects depending on the patient and their medical history. Side effects may include: Mild swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness in the treatment area. Some patients also reported minor headaches and pain at the injection site, sore throat, upper respiratory infection, and sinus infection. Patients should avoid lying down or rubbing the treatment area for at least 12 hours, as this can cause migration of the solution outside the treatment area.

How can I Maintain the Results?

Dysport is fantastic at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and smoothing the skin. However, it is a temporary dermal filler and will eventually be absorbed by the body. As your body begins the absorption process you may see the results begin to weaken, this is a great time to schedule a follow-up appointment at New You to discuss further treatments or more permanent options.
