If you’re over 30 years of age, than you probably have frown lines. Also known as “angry 11s,” these pesky wrinkles reside on the forehead, between and slightly above your eyebrows. The solution of choice is a botulinum neurotoxin, like Dysport. We inject Dysport into the tiny muscles that cause frown lines, smoothing out frown lines and forehead wrinkles for several months.
Correct Frown Lines Quickly and Comfortably
Botulinum type A, the active ingredient in Dysport, temporarily paralyzes the tiny muscles in your forehead – the ones that contract and cause wrinkles. After treatment, you’ll be able to show off a refreshed and younger-looking appearance.
- Convenient, non-invasive, and brief treatment
- Temporary correction of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles
- Used in millions of cosmetic treatments every year (Botulinum toxin type A)
Dysport works by blocking the neurotransmitters that would normally cause facial muscles to contract. Before injection, we cleanse your face with an antiseptic and apply a topical numbing cream (if necessary) to minimize discomfort.
The injection spots are then marked. We use a thin needle to inject Dysport into the forehead area. Treatment can be finished within 30 minutes and the results become evident 3-5 days later.
You can return to work the same day, but you may have some redness and minor swelling around the treatment areas. If you feel any discomfort, an over-the-counter medication can be used. Be sure to protect the treatment area from sun for the first few weeks.
The results are temporary and last for 3-6 months. You can maintain results with repeat treatments at our Bay Area offices.
Possible side effects include (but are not limited to) numbness, discomfort and bruising. You can also build up a tolerance to Dysport, which will reduce its effectiveness over time. We’ll discuss safety information in detail during your appointment.
