Reduce the effect of dynamic wrinkles with Dysport treatment in Frederick or Rockville

Dr Ronald B. Prussick, Washington Dermatology Center Providing Dysport Treatment

Dysport is a wrinkle-reducing treatment that is similar to Botox, receiving FDA approval a few years ago. Based on botulinum, just like Botox, Dysport is a beneficial non-surgical solution for the reduction of wrinkles caused by facial expressions. The lines that appear on the forehead and around the eyes are called dynamic wrinkles. When the skin is younger, the lines that appear when we frown or laugh disappear once the face relaxes. As we tend to use the same muscles during facial expression day after day, year after year, these lines eventually become a permanent part of the face.

The cosmetic solution to dynamic wrinkles offers safe and effective results that last for many months. Dysport is designed to limit the ability of muscles to contract. Though this does not stop your ability to make facial expressions, the relaxation of muscles lets the overlying skin rest, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance.

The effects of Dysport can be seen in areas such as the eyes, correcting crow’s feet, and the forehead, decreasing horizontal lines as well as the glabellar lines between the brows. Dysport is also used to correct slightly droopy eyebrows, providing a lift that rejuvenates the entire face, and can be used to decrease the appearance of lines on the neck.

Dr. Prussick performs Dysport treatments in Frederick and Rockville with great precision. Treatment begins with a thorough consultation, in which you will be able to discuss the concerns you have with your skin. Through this initial visit, your experienced dermatologist is able to devise the treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs.

A Dysport treatment will take only a few minutes to complete. Following your appointment, the only recovery instructions are to remain upright for a few hours, and to avoid placing any pressure on the treated area. The effects of Dysport on the muscles are gradual, with smoother skin typically noticed after a few days. Within a week to ten days, most people see the full effect of treatment; however, many have reported seeing continual improvement for as long as a month. Every person is different, but the average duration of results is about six months, at which time a touch-up treatment can be performed to preserve your youthful appearance.
