If you are someone passionate about skin care, you probably already have an extensive skin care routine to prevent the signs of aging. Many of us use creams, serums, and sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage and wrinkles and to keep our skin looking young and fresh. However, some signs of aging are unavoidable and at some point, our daily routines are not always enough to slow down the aging process.

You may find that you need a little professional help to achieve the skin care results you desire. Fortunately, at Skin MB in Nashville, our expert estheticians can help you achieve smoother and younger-looking skin. One of our most effective treatments for signs of aging such as frown lines and wrinkles are Dysport® injections. If you are not familiar with Dysport®, here are some of the facts you need to know:

What is Dysport®?

Dysport® is a fast-acting injectable used to smooth moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles on the face. This injection targets and prevents the contraction of certain facial muscles, which is what causes the appearance of frown lines. The results are temporary but long-lasting. They are also natural-looking, so you can achieve the desired result without looking like you have had a procedure done. They leave you looking like yourself, but with smoother and younger skin.

The Procedure

Similar to Botox®, Dysport® injections are used to minimize the look of facial wrinkles and aging. This is a minimally invasive procedure in which the esthetician injects the Dysport® to the problem area, typically the forehead muscles. This quick procedure takes about 10 minutes, and most people experience very little pain and only temporary discomfort. 

The Downtime

One of the major benefits of Dysport® injections is that there is minimal to no downtime needed after the procedure. Most patients find that they can go about the rest of their day immediately after the procedure. With Dysport® injections, you don’t have to worry about your skin needing to recover or heal like you do with more invasive procedures. 

The Results

After two to three days, you will begin to see the results of your Dysport® injections. Similar to Botox®, Dysport® prevents the contraction of certain facial muscles so that you cannot move them in a way that creates wrinkles. As a result, Dysport® can help to relax frown lines between the eyebrows, soften forehead wrinkles, improve the appearance of crow’s feet, and can even soften and improve the skin on the neck area. You will be left with smoother, fresher, and younger-looking skin. The results of Dysport® injections are not permanent but will last for up to four months.
