Do wrinkles and fine lines on your face, especially around your eyes, make you look a lot older than you actually are? If yes, you are not alone. This is a common problem that a great deal of people experience at some point in their lives.

Crow’s feet, wrinkles, fine lines, and marionette lines, also known as laugh lines, are early signs of aging that can deteriorate your aesthetic appeal and make you look much older. While these are definitely associated with aging, it’s not the only cause.

Wrinkles and fine lines on our faces are caused by repeated muscle contractions and a lack of skin elasticity, meaning that you can get them even at a younger age. While it is a common occurrence, crow’s feet can add years to your appearance and make you look dull, which is why many opt for procedures to treat them. One such procedure, which is rapidly growing in its popularity is Dysport.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable that helps in reducing facial lines and wrinkles on your face by targeting the muscles responsible for the development of wrinkles. In other words, Dysport is a neuromuscular modulator which uses a component that is a variation of botulinum toxin. This chemical blocks the nerve signals to your facial muscles and relaxes them.

Dysport is mostly used for treating frown lines on your forehead, especially between the eyebrows, known as glabella wrinkles. However, many doctors also use this injectable for treating crow’s feet.

What to Expect During a Dysport Treatment

The procedure for receiving Dysport injections is fairly simple and takes only about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. First, your doctor will likely give you a mild anesthetic to help with any discomfort you may experience during the injections.

The number of units required depends on how severe your wrinkles and fine lines are. The treatment is customized to fit the needs of each individual patient. This ensures the best results possible with minimal risks.

After the injections, most patients do not require any downtime and carry on with their daily activities. However, it is normal to experience some amount of swelling or bruising, which will subside in a day or two.

Once the treatment is completed, you will notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in a few days, with results that may last up to six months. Dysport can give you a more refreshed, tightened, and youthful appearance.

What Are The Benefits Of Dysport?

There are many benefits of undergoing this type of injectable treatment. Dysport:

• Has high fluidity, meaning that it can easily diffuse to a larger area. So, you need fewer injections even if you need to treat a large area.
• Is skin-friendly and easily absorbed into the skin to promote a longer period of effectiveness.
• Does not require any downtime and there is little to no pain during the procedure.
• Is more affordable than other alternatives for treating crow’s feet.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Dysport?

If you are under 65 years old, and you want to get rid of crow’s feet or laugh lines, then Dysport is ideal for you. It is important that you are in good general health and have realistic expectations from the procedure as well.
