Many effects that impact your skin and appearance are caused by muscle contractions. That “11” etched in between your eyebrows or the horizontal lines across the forehead are lines caused by years of muscle contractions. Dysport is a cosmetic injectable that can relax the muscles that cause these lines, creating a more youthful appearance for your face. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, offers fast, precise Dysport injections at our offices in New York City and Staten Island.
Dysport is a neuromodulator that is created from botulinum toxin in a sterilized, injectable form. Dysport is similar to Botox and is used cosmetically to treat lines and wrinkles. Dysport works by impacting the nerve signals that are sent to the muscles from the brain. It effectively blocks receptors that cause muscles to contract. This relaxes the muscles that form certain lines that are common on the brow and around the eyes. The injections can be completed quickly and require no downtime after the procedure.
Frown Line Treatment
Dysport injections are completed in a series, using small needles to precisely target the muscles causing frown or other lines. Dr. Rosenberg’s expertise ensures our patients experience minimal discomfort from the procedure and have little to no bruising in the treated area. The injections can be completed during a quick office visit to one of our offices, usually in less than a half hour. The effects become apparent over the next two weeks, sometimes in just a few days, and last for 4-6 months. To maintain the results, additional treatments can be used as desired.
Smoothing away etched lines on your face can help you look more youthful and slow the progression of deep lines caused by muscle contractions.
