How Quickly Does Dysport Show Results?
If you’re wondering how long it will take for this treatment to improve your frown lines, the answer might surprise you. Most patients see significant improvements within just 2-3 days! That’s right, the frown lines that took years to develop can recede within just 48 hours of getting your injections.
So, what exactly is this treatment and why does it work so quickly?
What Does It Treat?
This treatment targets the frown lines that develop between your eyebrows. (The fancy name for these wrinkles is glabellar lines.) They are especially bothersome for many people because they are known to make faces look harsh and angry. This treatment softens them, restoring a more relaxed expression to your face.
What Type of Treatment Is It?
This treatment is in a class of muscle relaxers known as neurotoxins. They work with the use of naturally occurring substances to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The basis of the treatment is botulinum toxin, which inhibits the muscle contractions that produce glabellar lines.
How Does It Work?
This treatment is extremely effective because it stops wrinkles at their source: muscle contractions. Every time you move your face, your skin folds. Over time, these folds leave permanent creases. They start out as fine lines that only appear when you make certain expressions. However, with time, they become a permanent feature of your face.
This treatment is a precise way of isolating the muscles that are causing your wrinkles. It will temporarily relax them, allowing your skin to smooth out.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Your appointment will go by very quickly. Believe it or not, you will be in and out of your chair within less than half an hour. The actual injections take as little as 10 minutes.
What Happens During the Treatment?
When you come in, we will give you a numbing agent. There are 5 sites between your brows that we will gently inject. Having these 5 sites allows us to target the muscles you want to relax without affecting the areas around them.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Not only are the results quick to show up, but they are also long-lasting. Many patients enjoy the benefits for as many as 5 months. At a minimum, you can expect 3-4 months of smoother skin.
Can This Treatment Be Repeated?
Yes! As soon as you see the results begin to diminish, you can refresh the treatment. In fact, studies show that the great majority of people who have received botulinum toxin say they would get it again.
Who Is Right for This Treatment?
Any healthy adult who is under age 65 is a good candidate. It is effective for both men and women, and it is popular throughout a broad range of ages. While older adults tend to have more wrinkles they want to treat, younger people are seeking it out as a way to prevent them from occurring in the first place.
Where Did This Treatment Come From?
Are you curious about the history of this neurotoxin? It has actually been around for longer than you might think. In the United States, it has had FDA approval since 2009. Before then, it was available in Great Britain. This means that millions of people have used this treatment to treat their glabellar lines. You might say it is a tried and tested solution.
The Many Benefits of Dysport
What makes this treatment so popular and why do so many people choose to get it? Read on to learn more about what makes it one of the most sought-after solutions for fine lines and wrinkles.
The biggest benefit to this neurotoxin is that it achieves its objective: a reduction of frown lines. The vast majority of people who receive this treatment report being satisfied with it, even if they only receive 2 sessions per year.
Compared with other treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, these injections work extremely fast. You can expect to see results within 2-3 days, and your full results will show within less than 2 weeks.
Think about topical creams, which can take almost two months to work, if they work at all. By that time, you may have forgotten what your skin looked like to begin with. For that reason, it is very difficult to assess their effectiveness. With Dysport, you will know you got the results you wanted, and you will see them quickly.
No Down Time
That’s right, after this treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately. Unlike cosmetic surgery, there is no recovery period.
This treatment has been enjoyed by millions of people for over two decades. It is available in 69 countries so far. The injections are straightforward, quick, and safe. You can enjoy Dysport knowing that it is well-researched, fully approved, and time-tested.
No one wants their face to look frozen. Fortunately, with this treatment, you don’t need to worry about that. The injections were carefully developed to target only the muscles causing your wrinkles. There are 42 muscles in your face, and most of them will be completely unaffected.
Following your treatment, you will still be able to show your facial expressions. Your face will still look like your face, just with fewer lines.
If you love the effects of this neurotoxin (and you will!) rest assured that it is safe and effective every time you do it. In fact, the results of subsequent treatments are comparable to those of your first session.
A Better Solution Than Topical Creams
Don’t get us wrong, topical creams can be an essential part of your skincare routine. However, they take a long time to work and they have their limitations. If you are thinking about investing a few hundred dollars into a high-end cream, we recommend this treatment instead. It works faster and you will actually see the results.
