When you smile, laugh, and frown, your facial muscles contract. Over time, these facial expressions will lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles which cause visible signs of aging.
Luckily, there are a variety of injections and cosmetic therapies that can slow the appearance of aging by eliminating the lines and wrinkles that frame your face.
One product that is well known for its effectiveness is Dysport, an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved injectable (formally known as Reloxin), which is derived from the same bacterium as Botox; Clostridium botullinum.
For nearly 30 years Dysport has been successfully used to treat neuromuscular conditions, and today it is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for treating wrinkles and facial lines.
Dysport is injected into muscles above and between your eyebrows (glabellar lines), paralyzing those specific muscles while leaving the rest of your facial muscles active.
Not only does this stop new frown lines from forming, it relaxes old frown lines for a smooth and more youthful appearance.
The beauty of this treatment is that it maintains your natural appearance, meaning that you don’t have to worry about getting stuck with the rigid, tight facial expression that is often associated with cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Shifrin offers Dysport injections to patients who are looking for:
- Reduced appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet (the wrinkles next to your eyes)
- Smoothing of wrinkles
Dysport is a quick procedure that will take less than 20 minutes, and its effect can be witnessed within 3 days and can last for up to 4 months after which you can receive more treatments.
Dr. Sheila Shifrin has experience and expertise in Dysport injections and will help you make an informed decision about this treatment.
