Have you noticed that smiling or making facial expressions causes the wrinkles on your face to look more prominent? If you want to smooth away those lines, consider Dysport: an injectable muscle relaxant that uses a neurotoxic protein called ABO to help you erase wrinkles and fine lines. Here at Northstate Plastic Surgery Associates in Chico, CA, you can take advantage of this quick and effective anti-aging cosmetic treatment that can help you look like a younger, more vibrant version of yourself.
How Long Do the Results From Dysport Last?
One of the best benefits of Dysport is the quick and effective results you’ll see. You can expect the effects from your injection to last about three or four months, depending on your specific treatment area. These long-lasting results set this particular treatment above the rest of the anti-aging cosmetic injectables, most of which only last between two and three months.
In fact, you’ll most likely only need about three or four sessions each year to maintain your results. This is in stark contrast to other cosmetic injectables on the market, which may require anywhere between four and six treatment sessions each year to maintain optimal results.
Quick Initial Results
One of the best parts of this treatment is that it starts to work immediately after it’s administered by one of our aesthetics experts. As soon as your treatment session is complete, you’ll be able to see that your skin feels much smoother and more supple. You should also notice that your wrinkles are starting to look more relaxed and smoother, too.
How Long Do the Final Results Take?
You can expect to see the final results about 96 hours (four days) after your treatment session. That’s another benefit to choosing this treatment: many other cosmetic injectables don’t show ultimate results for around 10 to 14 days. So, you can rest assured that the full effects of this treatment will last up to twice as long as other similar cosmetic injectables.
Where Can You Administer This Cosmetic Injectable?
Dysport is also an incredibly versatile treatment. You can use it to treat both medical and cosmetic concerns when it comes to wrinkles caused by dynamic muscles. In fact, it even is used to treat medical conditions such as muscle spasticity and cervical dystonia. Initially, the FDA approved this treatment to help reduce and eliminate frown lines (glabellar lines) effectively and safely. It’s still used for that today, and is effective in many other areas of the body as well, especially on the face.
In fact, another spot where many of our patients ask for treatment is around the outside of the eyes, more commonly known as crow’s feet. These are especially difficult to treat. Some other common injection locations include the neck, the folds between your nose and mouth, the forehead, the mouth, around the upper lip, and any folds or wrinkles above the eyebrows.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes, this treatment is entirely safe. There’s no need to worry about your muscles freezing or you losing sensation in your face, or the ability to emote. When you get this treatment, the amount you’re receiving is so small that it won’t adversely affect your muscles. Instead, your skin will look soft, smooth, and youthful.
Is This Treatment Invasive?
No, this treatment is only minimally invasive. You can enjoy all the effects of this cosmetic injectable without having to go through incisions, surgery, or painful recovery. We use a numbing cream and a micro-fine needle to ensure that you have a comfortable and pain-free experience.
During a treatment session, we inject the ABO into your trouble areas or places you have fine lines or wrinkles. Then, it goes to work immediately on the dynamic muscles that form wrinkles so you can enjoy soft and smooth skin once again.
Quick, Convenient Treatment Sessions
There’s another considerable benefit to choosing Dysport: it doesn’t require any lengthy downtime; it’s just a quick session that you can even fit in on your lunch break at work. Invasive cosmetic surgery or procedures typically require a hospital stay and painful recovery.
With this treatment, you won’t have to go to a hospital at all. Instead, you can come to our beautiful, state-of-the-art facility and enjoy a quick and convenient treatment session. Depending on how many areas you want to be treated, it shouldn’t take longer than 10 or 20 minutes, 30 at the most.
Highly Effective Treatment and Optimal Results
Probably the best aspect of this treatment is how effective it is. There’s no danger of losing feeling in your face, or being unable to emote, which can be a risk with certain cosmetic injectables. However, this treatment will give you the confidence and appearance you want yet still provide completely natural results. Since we use such a small dose, there’s virtually no risk for adverse side effects. Plus, you can see your results much faster, and they last longer, too.
