Aging naturally comes with crow’s feet, wrinkles, and other visible signs on the face. These are perfectly normal, but if you’re unhappy with these effects, there are non-surgical options available to smooth away lines and wrinkles. At Moderne Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale, Arizona, we offer non-invasive, injectable Dysport treatments to revitalize your skin, bringing back your youthful glow.
What Is Dysport Used For? Four Top Treatment Areas
This injectable is known as a neuromodulator. The specialized components in the formula bind to the muscles of the face and relax them, which then prevents facial muscles from contracting again. These tight contractions are what cause surface wrinkling. With the contracting signals blocked, your skin will smooth and soften, refreshing your complexion.
This remedy can also help prevent future wrinkles from forming as easily, meaning you’ll stay looking younger and fresher for even longer. The treatment is administered with a fine needle. There are no surgical aspects to this process, and thus there’s no downtime or recovery period afterward. You can get right back to enjoying your day!
These four areas are the most common for revitalizing treatments, where you’ll see near-instant results that will last for up to six months:
Frown lines are furrows in the skin between the eyebrows and are a byproduct of natural facial movements and expressions. Over time, these lines can become permanently apparent rather than just appearing when you smile or frown. For many people, it may feel like frown wrinkles make their resting expressions angry or sad, which can cause social and emotional stress.
Frown line treatments typically require 45-60 injection units. The pinched skin in between the eyebrows and on the forehead will relax, and deep grooves will disappear.
Like frown lines, wrinkles on the upper forehead are a natural result of facial movements, but they’re made worse by stress. These smaller, thinner lines toward the top of the forehead can deepen and become more plentiful as you age.
Forehead treatments typically require 24-36 injection units. The skin toward the top of the face will lift and tighten, smoothing over these fine lines.
3. Crow’s Feet
Resembling a bird’s footprint, these wrinkle patterns extend from the outer corner of the eye. As a person ages, the skin around the eyes naturally loses its elasticity, and these lines can deepen and become longer with time. This process is accelerated by frequent squinting and strained eye movement.
Crow’s eye treatments typically require 48 to 72 injection units. The skin around the eyes will become smoother and brighter, erasing signs of strain.
4. Upper Lip
Lip wrinkles are sometimes called lip lines or lipstick lines. These are small, vertical lines forming on the upper lip, and are very fine; lip makeup will often settle into these grooves and appear darker, which can draw unwanted attention.
The lips are a sensitive area that becomes dry and chapped easily. This, along with sun and wind exposure, can speed up the wrinkling process. Our lips also become less puffy as we age, because they lose collagen and elasticity. And finally, smoking can contribute to this wrinkling because of the free radicals that cigarettes create in the body, which speeds up aging. The repeated motion of pursing the lips to take a drag can also cause lip lines.
Lip treatments typically require 12 injection units. The skin of the lips will be rejuvenated and lifted, smoothing out pucker lines.
In order to make Dysport as effective as possible, there are steps you can take in your daily life to help your skin stay healthy and smooth:
Wear Sun Protection
Sun exposure is a leading cause of wrinkling and premature aging, and sunburns are a major contributor to skin cancer. Limiting sun exposure and always wearing sunscreen when needed can help you maintain a youthful flow for longer.
Moderne Medical Aesthetics’ EltaMD sunscreen line, made with transparent zinc oxide, is designed not to block pores and is safe for all skin types. Our line includes facial creams and full-body coverage sunscreens, providing UV protection while actively maintaining your skin health.
Loss of hydration in the facial skin speeds up wrinkling and loss of elasticity. Drinking enough water each day can help your skin stay smooth and fresh.
Moderne Medical Aesthetics offers patients products from the Skinbetter Science Skincare Line, which includes creams, serums, and botanicals to help your skin stay hydrated and healthy. These research-backed products are scientifically formulated to address complexion issues and bolster your skin’s natural health, keeping you looking vibrant for longer.
