One of the major side effects of getting older is the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your skin. While this is a natural process, the side effects may not necessarily be appreciated. If you’re looking for an effective way to treat common aging concerns, our Dysport treatment at Mountain State Cosmetic Surgery in Beckley, WV could be perfect.
What Is Dysport Used for?
If you’ve been looking for a way to get rid of wrinkles, then getting an injectable like this one can help. Wrinkles can be caused by a variety of factors, including repeated muscles movements and volume loss in certain areas. One common area is the space in between your eyebrows.
The 11-shaped lines that form between your brows are called glabellar lines. If you have these lines and you’re looking for a way to reduce their appearance, then Dysport can provide you with a safe, effective treatment option that will help you look younger.
What Causes Changes to the Skin?
If you’re thinking that this injectable could be the right treatment for your glabellar lines, you might be wondering why your skin wrinkles and creases in the first place. Several factors go into it. The first is a loss of collagen and elastin in your skin. These proteins help your skin stay pliable and smooth back out after making facial expressions. But as you get older, your skin isn’t able to smooth back out when the muscles underneath are relaxed.
That means that over time, the repeated muscles movements you make as you speak, eat, and make expressions will result in the creases that form becoming permanent over time. Since your eyebrows move around a lot throughout the day, it’s easy to see why glabellar lines can form quickly.
How Does Dysport Work?
This injectable is applied to your glabellar lines using a fine, precise needle. Its main ingredient is called botulinum toxin type A which is derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, the same ingredient in Botox.
When it’s injected into your skin, the botulinum toxin type A works as a neuromodulator. Your brain sends signals to your muscles, telling them to contract. By blocking these signals, the muscles around your eyebrows will stay relaxed. This means that the skin on top of the muscles will stay smooth and wrinkle-free.
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
If you’re thinking of getting this treatment to get rid of your glabellar lines, you might be wondering what the overall treatment process is like. When you come to our clinic, you’ll know that you’re getting safe, quality treatment from a team that cares about your safety as well as your results.
Before we set up your injection appointment, we’ll need to consult with you. This will give us the chance to take a look at your concerns and discuss whether or not this is the right treatment for you. This injectable is best for moderate to severe glabellar lines, so if your lines are fairly shallow we can discuss other treatment options.
We’ll also talk about your medical history to make sure this is the safest treatment for you. Once we’ve determined that this treatment is the right course of action for your concerns, we’ll provide you with instructions on how to prepare for your appointment.
Getting Ready for Treatment
There are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare for your treatment. We’ll provide you with full instructions before your appointment comes. It’s important that you follow these instructions to make sure that the treatment process stays safe as well as effective.
Preparation is easy and simple. For the week leading up to your injections, you’ll need to be mindful to avoid certain medications that might act as blood thinners. You’ll also need to stop drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco for the day or so before your appointment comes.
Our team is ready to welcome you to our clinic, where you’ll know that you’re getting safe treatment from knowledgeable, licensed, and highly trained practitioners. We’ll do everything we can to make sure you feel comfortable during the entire treatment process. Before applying the injections, we’ll prepare your skin by cleaning it. We can also apply a small amount of numbing cream.
Once your skin is ready for injections, we’ll use a very small needle to apply the product. Multiple strategic injections will be used to make sure that the product is applied correctly and that you get the results you want. The entire treatment process is fast and should take only a few minutes to complete.
Post-Treatment and Recovery
Because this treatment is non-invasive, you’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your appointment is done. There is very little recovery time associated with this treatment, and essentially no downtime required. Instead, there are just a few things you’ll need to be careful of as your skin heals.
Continue avoiding alcohol and tobacco for the next few days. You should also avoid staying in direct sunlight as well as performing any physical activity that might make you sweat excessively. Don’t apply any pressure to the area while the product settles.
This injectable’s main ingredient is botulinum toxin type A. That might look like an intimidating word at first glance, and you could be wondering if it’s safe to inject into your skin. You can rest assured that this filler is carefully formulated to be as safe as it is effective.
The team at our clinic is highly trained and committed to making sure that you get the results you want, and that your entire experience with us is safe. When you come to us, you’ll know that you’re in good hands.
See Results Quickly
One of the great things about this treatment is that you’ll get to see results quickly. While you may not notice a change immediately after your treatment, in just a few days you should see the results you’re looking for.
Most patients find that they see their results beginning to take effect just a few days after treatment.
Get Results that Last
No injectable can provide permanent results. If you’d like to maintain your results after treatment, you’ll need to return to our clinic for follow-up appointments.
When you receive this injectable, you can expect your results to last for anywhere between 3 to 4 months before you need to return for maintenance injections.
A Natural Appearance
One of the main concerns when it comes to injectables like this one is that your results won’t look natural. You might be worried about your face looking fake, or about having to confront uncomfortable questions from your friends and family.
But as long as you come to a clinic like ours where the team is carefully trained to provide you with natural-looking results. We’ll inject small amounts of the product at a time to make sure that you get the youthful yet subtle look you want.
If you’re looking for some anti-aging options, there are lots out there. One thing you might be considering is a surgical procedure. But these procedures might not be right for everyone, as they are quite invasive and might require a lengthy recovery time.
If you’re looking for something non-invasive, then this injectable could be the right option for you. You’ll get effective results that will help you appear younger and you won’t need to worry about the risks that surgical procedures have. You’ll also have a much faster and easier recovery time.
Aging is a completely natural process, and you’ll inevitably see the side effects eventually. But if you want a solution to your glabellar lines, then this injectable is a great option. Those with deeper glabellar lines will be able to reap the benefits from Dysport.
As the botulinum toxin type A forces the muscles beneath your skin to relax, you’ll see those deep lines between your brows lessening in severity. This will help you look younger, and it will also help you look overall more relaxed and comfortable.
