Smoothing Frown Lines with Dysport

Years of laughing, smiling, and frowning eventually build up and cause lines and wrinkles to form on the face. While these can be signs of a long and well-lived life, many people dislike these indications of aging, seeing them as something they’d like to hide. Thankfully, there are injectable treatments like Dysport, a known Botox substitute, used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck, as well as moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the forehead.

So how does Dysport work to reduce wrinkles? Like Botox, it paralyzes specific muscles in the face, preventing wrinkles from forming. The distinction with Dysport is that it doesn’t affect the muscles around the ones that are immediately treated, allowing the face to remain loose and expressive. This results in a more natural appearance. To get great results, it’s best to consult with a trusted aesthetic provider for safe and seamless Dysport treatments.

How Dysport Smooths Frown Lines and Wrinkles

Dysport is a non-invasive treatment for dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements such as laughing, smiling, and frowning. It’s a rapid and effective treatment that’s designed to spread and target several wrinkles at once, making it great for frown lines and crow’s feet. This 15 to 30-minute treatment can begin to diminish and decrease these lines and wrinkles after around 1 to 3 days.

1) Dysport Works Similarly to Botox

Dysport works in the same way that Botox does. Both are neuromodulator injectables used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Dysport has a thinner consistency than other neuromodulators, making it a better choice for those who want to treat larger areas because the solution spreads more easily.

Dysport, as a neuromodulator, is intended to temporarily diminish muscle activity. A neuromodulator operates by preventing messages from being sent between motor neurons and face muscles. Normally, neurotransmitters deliver messages that instruct muscles to contract. What a neuromodulator does is block such messages from being received by the muscle.

This allows the muscle to rest and relax, as well as your skin to cease creasing from frequent facial movements. When these muscles are temporarily frozen, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines are reduced. This especially works in facial areas where dermal fillers don’t work on.

2) Results Are Quick, But They Will Fade Over Time

One of the most appealing aspects of neuromodulator treatment is how quickly you’ll get the desired outcomes. The effects of this treatment are usually visible within 1 to 2 days, though some patients may notice results right away. The full extent of your outcomes will be apparent around a week after your therapy.

Neuromodulator treatments have only short-term effects. Most of the time, your results will last for about 6 months. Moreover, your metabolism rate directly affects how long the results will last, so you have to fix some habits or train yourself to develop necessary lifestyle changes for the maintenance of your results.

Excessive exercise, for example, or leading an extremely busy lifestyle can cause your body to metabolize the medication more quickly, resulting in outcomes that last closer to 4 months rather than 6. Other factors, such as stress and lifestyle behaviors, may cause your benefits to fade faster.

Your results will fade gradually, which is beneficial when determining how frequently you require your treatments. As the neuromodulator wears off, you may notice that little creases and wrinkles begin to emerge after a few months. It’s advisable to schedule another round of treatment at that point.

How Frown Lines Develop

You might be thinking how you get frown lines in the first place if Dysport works by relaxing the muscles?

Frown lines emerge as a normal part of the aging process of the face, but there are some elements that might postpone the onset of these lines and assist to diminish their appearance.

1) Excessive facial expressions

Frown lines can emerge for a variety of reasons and become more prominent with time. As youngsters, we pick up on facial expressions from those around us, especially our parents. 

All of our facial expressions are caused by muscles located beneath the skin. When we squint our eyes because of the sun, or lift an eyebrow in protest or fear, we’re employing three different muscles that run in various directions to manage those precise motions.

When we use one of those muscles, a groove appears beneath the skin’s surface. This is not found in younger skin, which is more supple and elastic and allows us to easily hide these grooves. When we get older, these grooves slowly become more visible and turn into wrinkles and frown lines due to the loss of skin pliability.

People who frown frequently as a habit or who are highly expressive may develop frown lines earlier. Consider your skin to be a piece of fabric to see the formation of frown lines. The cloth gradually transforms from springy and impossible to crease, like a piece of elastic, to thinner and more like a piece of light linen.

2) Aging prematurely

Collagen and elastin, two skin proteins, are essential for keeping our skin looking and feeling young and healthy. As we age, the rate at which these proteins are supplied in our skin slows, and our skin loses its suppleness, making it less stretchy and pliable. This raises the likelihood of frown lines deepening and remaining visible on the skin.
