If there’s one thing that most people can relate to, it’s frustration with wrinkles. Not only do they make us look extremely dull and tired, they make us look much older than we actually are. The worst part is that these wrinkles can appear as early as our late twenties.

Like many people, you may have attempted using several potential solutions to get rid of facial wrinkles. You may have tried methods like medications and anti-aging creams. However, the truth is that these methods often don’t give you the outcomes you’re hoping for.

Happily, this doesn’t mean you have to live with these wrinkles forever. Dysport, a minimally invasive injectable procedure, can get rid of the wrinkles on your face and give you a younger, more refreshed appearance in just a matter of minutes.

What Is Dysport and How Does It Work?

Dysport injections are anti-aging products that are used to remove wrinkles on certain areas of your face, particularly the wrinkles that form between your eyebrows, also known as frown lines. Dysport was approved by the FDA in 2009 for use on patients who are below age 65.

Dysport is created from a neurotoxin known as botulinum toxin type A. When it is injected into overactive muscles, it can temporarily decrease their movement. It does this by blocking signals coming from the nerves. In other words, the targeted muscle is paralyzed temporarily by Dysport.

Since the message transmitter has been blocked, this muscle is unable to receive messages from the brain that tell it to move and contract. Thus, the muscles relax, making the skin above the muscle much smoother and free of wrinkles.

What Is the Procedure Like?

Dysport injections are minimally invasive. The procedure usually takes no more than 15 minutes to perform. With the help of a small needle, Dysport is injected into your skin, with the needle going into the underlying muscles that are causing the wrinkles.

During the procedure, anesthesia will not have to be administered. The procedure is virtually painless, and if you experience any discomfort, it will be minimal, such as a slight burning sensation or stinging sensation like with any normal injection. If you are sensitive to pain, the doctor may apply a numbing cream or cold compress to help numb the targeted areas.

You can go home right after your treatment, and there is no downtime involved. You can carry on with your day as usual.

Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Dysport?

You may be an ideal candidate for Dysport if you identify with the following:
• You are at least 18 years of age and younger than 65 years old.
• You have wrinkles and fine lines on your face.
• You have tried various methods to get rid of wrinkles but haven’t achieved the results you desire.
• You want a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
• You don’t want to undergo surgery to get your desired results.
