Prejuvenation Aesthetics offers Dysport in Ashburn & Leesburg. Like Botox, Dysport is a prescription cosmetic injectable for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It’s meant for adults up to 65 years of age with prominent frown lines due to the overuse of facial muscles. The injections are carefully delivered at various points in the glabellar region just above the eyebrows to soften the frown lines and improve your facial youthfulness.
What is Dysport?
Treat Frown Lines with Dysport
Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines, are the vertical “11” lines between the eyebrows — they usually appear when you frown or knit your eyebrows together. However, the consistent overuse of facial muscles while frowning deepens the frown lines, making them stay etched on your face even at rest. This makes you look old, grumpy, or tired. Dysport has FDA approval to reduce the prominence of these frown lines.
Dysport is a neuromodulator, i.e., a medication that prevents the release of chemical signals from the nerve endings that cause muscle contractions. It’s made of a neurotoxic protein (botulinum toxin type A) that temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, thereby softening the frown lines for a few months. While Dysport is FDA-approved for frown lines, it can also be used for forehead lines and crow’s feet.
Your Dysport Experience
Dysport in Ashburn & Leesburg is a painless and comfortable treatment that concludes within 15 to 30 minutes. After examining your facial skin and discussing your concerns, apply a numbing gel on your skin to ensure comfort. A calibrated Dysport dosage is injected into the targeted treatment areas using ultrafine needles. The number of injections depends on your specific goals and needs.
Dysport causes mild redness, irritation, swelling, discomfort, and bruising around the treatment areas for a few days. The side effects are mild and temporary, and you can resume all your daily activities immediately. However, you’ll be asked to avoid smoking, drinking, or engaging in strenuous workouts for about 24 hours.
Your skin will seem smoother after 2 to 3 days, but you’ll continue seeing improvements for about a week or two. The final results will last for up to 4 months, following which you’ll need maintenance treatments. Your cosmetic provider will curate the ideal Dysport treatment frequency to help you maintain the results.
