Eliminate frown lines and wrinkles
It is natural for individual to seek the most effective methods to slow down the signs of aging. Dr. Julie Sofer offers various options for her patients and during her personalized consultation with you will determine the most effective method to achieve your desired goals.
There are several options now available to reduce the frown lines in the forehead. The most popular treatment option is BOTOX® Cosmetic. However, Dr. Sofer, appreciating that one treatment does not work for everyone, now also offers Dysport®.
Dysport®…an alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic
Facial movements such as frowning or squinting can create frown lines. Frown lines can even develop in younger adults. Dysport® is a new wrinkle relaxer approved to treat forehead wrinkles and frown lines. Approved to treat wrinkles in 23 countries it has been approved by the FDA since 2009 in the United States.
Dysport® is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age. The Dysport® procedure usually takes about 15 minutes. When the effects begin to fade, you can return for a follow-up treatment.
The potential side effects of Dysport® are similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic. They include local numbness, swelling, bruising or a burning sensation during injection. Dr. Sofer advises her patients to apply ice to the injection site before and after the procedure to reduce side effects.
What is Dysport® and what are the advantages?
Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A like BOTOX® Cosmetic. It blocks the nerve impulses that cause your facial muscles to contract and form lines. The main ingredient is a neurotoxin, but the amount is so incredibly small that it’s considered non-toxic. It relaxes facial muscles and smoothes forehead lines and wrinkles giving you a younger more rested look.
The primary difference between BOTOX® and Dysport® is that Dysport® works within one to two days where BOTOX® Cosmetic takes three to five. This rapid response is appealing to someone who wants to improve their appearance before a social event or meeting. Some studies have shown that Dysport® injections may keep wrinkles at bay for six months in the crow’s feet area, as opposed to the approximate three month timeframe found when using BOTOX® Cosmetic.
