How Dynamic Wrinkles Are Formed

Dynamic wrinkles are formed due to repeated muscle contractions that occur during facial expressions like smiling, frowning, or squinting. Over time, these muscle contractions create creases on the skin’s surface. For instance, the furrowing of brows or squinting of eyes can lead to noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet. Dynamic wrinkles become more prominent with age as skin loses elasticity and collagen. Dysport temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for these expressions, thereby softening the associated wrinkles.

Dysport: An Overview

Dysport is a neurotoxin-based injectable used in cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Its active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, temporarily paralyzes the underlying muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles. When administered by our cosmetic providers, Dysport can reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, or crow’s feet around the eyes. The treatment takes only a few minutes and requires little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical solution to achieve a smoother, more youthful look.

Dysport FAQs

How does Dysport work?

Dysport, like other botulinum toxin type A-based injectables, works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that signals muscle contractions. When injected into targeted muscles, Dysport’s active ingredient, abobotulinumtoxinA, binds to nerve endings and prevents the release of acetylcholine. This temporarily inhibits muscle activity, reducing the contractions responsible for wrinkles. As a result, the overlying skin smoothes out, creating a more youthful and relaxed appearance.

Is Dysport safe?

Yes, when administered by our skilled providers, Dysport is perfectly safe. It has a well-established safety profile, and the side effects are mild and temporary. Dysport is FDA-approved to treat glabellar frown lines with the other common applications to treat facial lines and wrinkles considered off-label treatments.

Does Dysport hurt?

Most people report only mild discomfort during Dysport injections. The needles used are very fine, and any pain is usually brief. We also offer numbing cream or ice to minimize discomfort.

How soon will I see results after Dysport treatment?

Dysport typically shows visible results within a few days, with optimal results becoming noticeable after about two weeks. However, individual response times may vary.

How long does Dysport last?

The effects of Dysport typically last three to four months. However, individual results may vary, and factors such as metabolism and the amount administered can influence its duration.
