Many of our patients have researched different methods for wrinkle relaxation and ways to decrease the appearance of fine lines. Over time, repeated movements of the facial skin by facial muscles form vertical wrinkle lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and lines around the eye. These lines are called “dynamic” because they disappear when the face stops moving. However, as an individual ages, the skin loses elasticity allowing for dynamic lines to become more permanent creases and wrinkles.
Like Botox, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily prevents the contraction of the muscle that causes wrinkle lines. Dysport is an injectable muscle relaxant that can help patients decrease the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. It is an injectable that is administered by our Coast Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center dermatologist, Dr. Glenn Goldberg. Dr. Goldberg is an expert injector, who combines technical and artistic skills to help his patients achieve their desired results.
Dysport has also been found to be a good alternative for people who have developed Botox resistance over time. Results usually last three to six months, but may vary from patient to patient.
The treatment time with Dysport is typically only 10 to 20 minutes. During a consultation, Dr. Glenn Goldberg will evaluate whether Dysport is the right option for you to effectively reduce dynamic facial lines. Dr. Glenn Goldberg may also discuss other injectables at Coast Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center that may best address your individual needs.
